OnePlus has recently revealed its highly anticipated flagship smartphone, called the 5T. Having an outstanding hardware, amazing shooters and a great battery, the device is expected to beat almost all the major smartphones on the market. More specifically, it can become this year’s flagship phone killer. Sounds interesting? Read this article to all the detailed information, including OnePlus 5T release date, specs and price.
OnePlus 5T Release Date: November 21
OnePlus launched the new 5T on November 16. However, the device is not available in the market right now. But you will not have to wait a long time to grab it. The Chinese manufacturer has announced that it will release the new flagship phone in North America, Europe and India on November 21. By setting OnePlus 5T release date near to the Christmas season, the company is hoping to generate a massive number of sales worldwide.
OnePlus 5T Price: Starts at $499
The OnePlus 5T is launched in two different variants – 64 GB and 128 GB. The former one will be available in the US and the UK at $499 and £449 respectively. In the other European countries, it will cost about 499 Euro. The latter one will cost $559 and £499 in North America and Britain. The other European smartphone lovers will get it at 559 Euro.
OnePlus 5T Design: Reduced Bezels
The major smartphone manufacturers are using a minimal amount bezel around the top of their devices. OnePlus has also followed the same trend. The bezels above and below have been reduced significantly. As a result, despite having a larger screen size, the 5T has become smaller than its predecessor. However, the application of minimal bezels has forced the manufacturer to remove physical home button and navigation keys. The fingerprint scanner has been relocated from the front to the rear. So, there are plenty of changes in the design.
OnePlus 5T Specs: 6.01” Display, 20-MP Camera, 8 GB RAM and More
Larger display, powerful cameras, super-fast processor, massive RAM capacity and big battery, OnePlus 5T has everything to drive the attention of the consumers away from the other rivals.
OnePlus 5T Specs: Display
The 5T comes with a large 6.01-inch display. It is the biggest screen that we have ever seen in an OnePlus handset. So, you get a plenty of space to deal with office works, like editing documents, watch your favorite movies and play all the latest games comfortably. The display boasts a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels, which translates to a decent pixel density of 401 ppi. Being equipped with the AMOLED panel, it is able to produce incredibly vibrant colors. The inclusion of the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top ensures solid protection against the unwanted scratches. It will help the screen to retain its new look for a long time.
OnePlus 5T Specs: Camera
The OnePlus 5T has a dual camera setup on the rear. The 16-MP and 20-MP sensors, which are both built by Sony, come with an increased aperture of f/1.7. It allows them to bring in more light to the frame, which results in a much better performance in the low light condition. The two shooters also support the highly improved Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) technology. It helps you to record smoother videos even though you shake your hands accidentally. For the selfie lovers, OnePlus has included a 16-MP secondary camera. Its mega pixel range is much higher than the secondary shooters of the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X. So, we are expecting a superb performance.
OnePlus 5T Specs: Hardware and Interface
Similar to the Galaxy Note 8, the OnePlus 5T has been packed with the Adreno 540 GPU and Snapdragon 835 chip, which is the second fastest smartphone processor in the world behind the A11 Bionic chip on the iPhone X. So, we are expecting to see a super-fast performance from the device. However, it has 8 GB RAM, which is higher than the Note 8 (6 GB). So, there is a possibility for the OnePlus 5T to operate a bit faster than Samsung’s flagship phablet. There is also a variant with 6 GB RAM, which you can get at a relatively cheaper price.
OnePlus 5T is powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is not the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. However, the Chinese company has confirmed that the latest Android update (Oreo) will be available for the device in the early 2018. Right now, you will find the custom Oxygen OS being laid on top of the Nougat OS. It makes the stock version not only look beautiful but also very useful due to the immense customization options that it offers.
OnePlus 5T Specs: Battery and Charging
OnePlus 5T sports a 3300 mAh battery. We feel that it is not big enough to power a 6.01-inch device. The manufacturer should have used a larger one. We do not expect it to beat any of the major competitors, including the battery of the Galaxy Note 8. But we expect it to outperform the batteries of iPhone X and LG G6 pretty easily.
The 3300 mAh battery supports the fast charging technology. However, it is not compatible with the wireless charging system. Pate Leu, the CEO of OnePlus, says that the wireless concept is exciting. However, he feels that it is not better than the company’s wired Dash Charge, which produces 20 watts of power. More specifically, it takes only 30 minutes to provide sufficient charge for the battery to last a full day. On the other hand, the existing wireless charging technology is very slow. It requires the phone to be positioned correctly. So, there is no chance of using it during charging. In that sense, we agree with Leu’s statement.
Overall, in combination of powerful specs and the OnePlus 5T release date being set close to the holiday season, we are expecting to see the Chinese company taking out all the competitors in a surprising way. There is a strong chance for a massive revenue generation.
