There was hardly any surprise left to be known about the much hyped OnePlus 5T smartphone but, tech nerds were still excited. The handset is featuring a bunch of significant upgrades on the previously launched flagship OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 5T Launched
The all new OnePlus 5T gets taller and possesses better dual camera setup. It gets slightly heavier than the 5 and marginally taller and wide. The new flagship features a taller 6.01-inch Optic AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and 18:9 screen aspect ratio.
The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Pixel density remains same as of 5 but the screen-to-body ratio is not at very 2017, i.e., ~80%. To make this happen, the fingerprint sensor moves to the rear side, located at the centre. New Face Unlock feature is also onboard which is claimed to unlock the device in just 0.4 seconds.
Notice that little smiley? That’s our new Face Unlock feature. With Face Unlock, it takes our camera just 0.4 seconds to recognize your face and unlock your phone. It’s basically instant, and it’s one of the fastest facial recognition features on any smartphone. pic.twitter.com/pgB2WpjdRG

Underneath, the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is running the show paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is another variant housing the 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage (dual-lan UFS 2.1). There is no card slot for expanding the OnePlus 5T storage, as the device is still carrying similar design and architecture.
The rear camera setup gets better as the company has upgraded the lenses underneath. The new handset is rocking a 20MP sensor paired with 16MP sensor, both featuring f/1.7 aperture. Dual LED flash is present along with EIS stabilization assisted by Gyro sensor. The rear camera setup can allow the device to take better pictures in dark, specially the portrait ones.
So, the OnePlus 5T no longer have the zoom lens at rear setup.
The selfie shooter has 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, EIS stabilization and auto HDR feature. It can record full HD quality videos while the rear camera setup can record 4k videos at 30fps.
In the connectivity department, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G, NFC, and USB Type-C are onboard. 20W rated Dash Charging is onboard to quickly charge the sealed 3,300mAh battery.
