After series of rumors and leaks, OnePlus has finally taken the wrap off their new and revamped OnePlus 5T. The phone is basically a result of hardware improvement to overcome those factors that made the OnePlus 5 less appealing.
The obvious change can be seen in the form of a 6-inch Optic AMOLED display with 18:9 screen ratio and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixel. The odd screen ratio has definitely made the OnePlus 5T live up to the expectation of latest trends. And the new ceramic fingerprint scanner has now been shifted to rear, thanks to the bezel-less screen.
If in case you don’t want to use the fingerprint scanner, the company has implemented the face scanning technology with a read speed of 0.4 seconds. The technology makes use of 100 facial features and fortunately works in dark environment too.
What’s new here is its dual-camera setup. The phone ditches its predecessor’s telephoto lens to make a room for an improved low light performance and portrait mode. The phone’s either of cameras carries the same field of view, though, the second one comprises of the 20MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
The phone’s optics will expectedly allow the phone to capture portrait images without any need for cropping. Likewise, the phone will switch to its second lens in dark lighting conditions while making the use of Intelligent Pixel tech; which combines 4 pixels into one to reduce the noise and lines.
Despite measuring to be a tad bit taller than OnePlus 5, the phone still comes with a 3,300mAh battery, though, with Dash Charge support.
As for the internals, the phone is equipped with Snapdragon 835 chipset, while it comes with chunks of memory. The phone has two variants; one with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, whilst the latter with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — both variant comes with dual-lane UFS 2.1 storage, however, it doesn’t have a microSD card slot.
As for the pricing, the OnePlus 5T will go on sale in India for INR. 33,000 for the 64GB version, whereas the 128GB one will be priced at INR. 38,000. Expect the phone arrive in Nepal within a month or two for around 55-60,000 NPR.
