The new OnePlus 5T comes with three key upgrades over the original OnePlus 5. The first and most discernible change is the design language.
The new phones comes with a bigger 6.01-inch full-HD+(2160x1080p) Optic AMOLED display having 18:9 aspect ratio, thus guaranteeing an immersive cinematic viewing experience.
The 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 telephoto lens has an 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, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T have the same 16MP snapper with Sony IMX370 sensor, but the latter has additional software that allows it to have the face unlock feature with record 400ms speed.
"OnePlus 5T is our endeavour to share the latest and greatest technology with our community; but the biggest validation for us is the positive feedback from consumers who have shown heartwarming response on the day 1 of sales on Amazon.in. We also witnessed great excitement from the fans at our OnePlus Experience Store in Bangalore. We are humbled to receive such love and support from our community and to live up to their demand, we are happy to announce a special preview sale on Amazon.in on November 24, open to all customers from noon to 1 pm." Vikas Agarwal, general manager, OnePlus India, said.
