The new OnePlus 5T comes with three key upgrades over the original OnePlus 5. First and most discernible change is the design language. The new phones come with a bigger 6.01-inch full HD+(2160x1080p) Optic AMOLED display having 18:9 aspect ratio, thus guaranteeing cinematic immersive viewing experience.
OnePlus 5T camera MP count is same as the OnePlus 5; the key difference is that the new phone comes with the same aperture value of f/1.7 for both the cameras (16MP+20MP) in the dual setup whereas, in OnePlus 5, the secondary telephoto lens has f/2.6 aperture.
With this minor change, the company says the new phone will be able to get better quality images in low-light conditions.
On the front too, both OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T have the same 16MP snapper with Sony IMX370 sensor, but the latter has additional software that allows the device to have 'face unlock' feature with a record 400ms speed.
