OnePlus 5T Launched: Price, Specifications And Availability

OnePlus 5T vs One Plus 5 Should you upgrade

The new phone comes with a six-inch display - the biggest the device has ever had - and is also the first OnePlus phone to feature facial recognition. Also, at the same time through OnePlus India Online Store and OnePlus experience store in Bangalore as a part of early access sale. The OnePlus 5T is here to take care of that.

OnePlus will conduct open sales of the OnePlus 5T starting November 28, same day as the US market. Both phones start with 64GB of internal storage, but there's a 128GB model available of the 5T if you need more space.

OnePlus 5T launched at a price of Rs 32,999 for 64GB and 8GB RAM version is Rs 37,999. If you're looking for value then you've come to the right place. Assuming battery life and performance hold up to further scrutiny, OnePlus will likely be right up there with 2017's best bezel-less flagships - at almost half the price. The Moto Z2 Force costs an insane £719, the Samsung Galaxy S8 sits at £669 and the HTC U11 is £599.

Let's not pretend here, the OnePlus 5T naturally looks like the OnePlus 5. The fingerprint sensor has been shifted from below the display to back of the phone.

And yes, it looks a lot like the Oppo R11S.

Should OnePlus 5 users consider an upgrade? Within the dual-camera setup, the device houses one 20Megapixel sensor and another 16Megapixel module. Don't worry, as OnePlus hasn't killed the 3.5 mm audio jack in the process.

There is no waterproofing of any kind, nor any form of wireless charging. OnePlus is already working on Android Oreo 8.0 update for its devices but there is no confirmed date for the Oreo update. So there are some sacrifices to achieve the price.

We'll keep our eyes on the details and update when we find out more, but this is likely to be the most common way to buy for many, so fingers crossed. This is a shame, as the cases don't show off the excellent premium build underneath. Some love big phones, while others want something that's easier to hold, use and carry.

Iran to probe state-built homes destroyed by deadly quake
The head of the Revolutionary Guards, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said the immediate need was for tents, water and food. Iranian state TV said thousands of survivors had spent another night in makeshift camps or in the open. "We need help.

But for £449, wow, what a looker.

Unlike the OnePlus 3T, the 5T does not get a notable bump over the previous generation in terms of core specs.

The phone is powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset.

However, the company also revealed that it will be rolling out the Android Oreo Global ROM for OnePlus 5 users later this month. This year's iPhones are also ridiculously quick with Apple's new A11 Bionic chip. It works works impressively fast, but it's not meant for serious security and can't authenticate payments. OnePlus claims to have enhanced low-light photography on the 5T by leveraging the secondary sensor in low-light conditions (under 10 lux), a claim which we'll thoroughly test in the coming weeks.

How to broadcast voice messages to your Google Home speakers
You will need to be running Google Home device firmware version 1.26.93937 or higher and have "Do Not Disturb" mode disabled . To activate the feature, a user can say "OK Google, broadcast" followed by the desired announcement.

Unfortunately, there's still no optical image stabilisation (OIS) present on either sensor, though the company has said that they've vastly improved the electronic image stabilisation (EIS) technology for smoother videos.

The front facing 16 megapixel camera has been retained but it has picked up some new tricks. Elsewhere it stuck to the things you know about OnePlus with plenty of power and an attractive price. OnePlus 5 was one of the best performing smartphones we tested, and there's no doubt the OnePlus 5T is going to be any different on that front. Sadly, OnePlus still hasn't seen fit to add a microSD card slot. Nougat? Yes, the new phone is still running an old version of Android, but that will change soon-ish.

Oxygen OS, the firms interface, continues to improve. You can thank the novel new display for that. While the OnePlus 5T is nowhere close to a true "bezel-less" device, it features slim bezels that compare favorably to the Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, and other edge-to-edge devices.

The top bezel still has room for a camera though, and that's how you can set up face unlock.

Fu spent 4,000 yuan on clothes, cosmetics and kitchen utensils in pre-event sales, and kept shopping on the day. Technology, too, has been key, with virtual reality dressing rooms and live fashion shows to attract shoppers.

Additionally, the phone offers its own face unlocking implementation dubbed simply as "Face Unlock". "The 5T's 6", 2160x1080 display doesn't grow the overall size of the phone much. Everything is very austere and clean cut in order to get a process done as fast as possible.
