OnePlus has outed the OnePlus 5T joining the gang of thin bezel displays. It’s basically the same OnePlus 5 we have known and seen with a bigger display and shrunken bezels.
2017 has been all about thinner bezels. Samsung already leads the race with its curved edge displays followed by iPhone X. It is obvious that companies would be picking up the trend. OnePlus saw the opportunity and instead of waiting for next year, went with redesigning its existing flagship to fit a bigger display within roughly same physical dimensions.
The OnePlus 5T has a 6 inch with 18:9 ratio and resolution of 1080×2160. As a result of shrunken bezels, fingerprint sensor had to be moved to the rear and everyone might not like it. The physical navigation keys have been replaced by the on-screen ones. That’s a trade-off you’ll have to do for a bigger screen. Or else go for the regular OnePlus 5.
Another noteworthy change is the camera. On OnePlus 5T secondary camera is now the dedicated low-light shooter with the same aperture as the primary one i.e. f/1.7. This would make low light photos even better.
Everything else between two phones remains the same. There are the same Snapdragon 835 processor and two RAM/memory configurations. You can choose between 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB. The battery, too, stands at the same 3,300 mAh.
What also remains the same is its pricing. Yes, you read it right. There’s absolutely no change in the pricing. The 6GB variant will cost Rs.32,999 and 8GB variant will come in for Rs.37,999. So that’s going to make the situation tricky for a lot of buyers out there.
