OnePlus today officially announced the OnePlus 5T its latest premium flagship device.
The OnePlus 5T is offering a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED Display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, enhanced low-light camera performance, and numerous new software features while keeping a form factor similar to that of the OnePlus 5.
The OnePlus 5T's Full Optic AMOLED display features a new Sunlight Display that adapts automatically to harsh light. Users can calibrate their screens based on their viewing preferences across four different modes, including default, sRGB, DCI-P3 and adaptive.
To ensure the OnePlus 5T's seamless front design, OnePlus moved its ceramic fingerprint sensor, which unlocks the phone in under 0.2 seconds, to the back of the device. The aluminum unibody of the OnePlus 5T is both functionally and visually slim, creating a phone that is not only comfortable to hold but also durable.
The OnePlus 5T comes with key improvements that enhance camera performance in low-light. The device features the same main camera as that of the OnePlus 5, but boasts an improved secondary camera equipped with a large f/1.7 aperture for superior low light photography. With Intelligent Pixel Technology, the OnePlus 5T's secondary camera merges four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity. Additional software improvements have also been added to Portrait Mode to improve noise reduction.
The smartphone runs on the OxygenOS operating system, basded on the Android. Added features to OxygenOS is Face Unlock, which allows OnePlus users to unlock their phone just by looking at their device. Face Unlock uses over 100 identifiers to unlock the OnePlus 5T. The solution is nothing like Face ID on the iPhone X, which beams 30,000 infrared dots onto a user's face, maps them using an infrared camera, and continuously updates its data each time Face ID is used. But OnePlus is obviously sacrificing security for speed, however, and it positions Face Unlock as a convenience feature rather than a security feature.
First introduced with the OnePlus 3, Dash Charge is one of the fastest charging solutions on the market. A quick half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 5T enough power for the day. By carrying more current and shifting the power management from the handset to the adapter to keep the phone cooler during charging, Dash Charge can continue to fast charge the OnePlus 5T even while using GPS or playing graphically intensive games.
The device comes with up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, supports dual-lane storage based on UFS 2.1 and runs on the the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The OnePlus 5T in both the 64 GB and 128 GB (Midnight Black version) storage options will be available on OnePlus.net in the United States and in Europe on November 21st starting from USD 499 / EUR 499 / GBP 449.
