OnePlus 5 and 5T should, finally, get Android Oreo by next year

OnePlus 5 and 5T should, finally, get Android Oreo by next year

Unfortunately, the OnePlus 5T doesn't feature a microSD card slot, so in this case, what you see is what you get, storage-wise. One of the drawbacks of the phone is that OnePlus 5T is not water and dust resistance. For OnePlus - a brand which survives on the idea of bringing the very best in terms of hardware to the market at a competitive price - not being able to flaunt a Full HD + bezel-less panel on its 2017 flagship was starting to become detrimental to its sales.

The OnePlus 5T will go on sale on 21 November across Europe and North America, priced at [$479] for 64GB storage and 6GB RAM, and [$539] for 128GB storage and 8GB of RAM.

And while the new OnePlus 5T looks almost identical to the OnePlus 5 from earlier this year, even with a bigger screen, the design is different. OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau - formerly of Oppo - said the company has "refined every last detail" of the device, but it's really just modified an older handset manufactured by its sister firm.

The OnePlus 5T, however, does make some changes to the fingerprint scanner which has moved from the front to the rear to make room for a larger display.

And then there's face unlocking, which OnePlus didn't quite make the song and dance over that Apple did. It is worth noting that Apple's face ID is far ahead of 5T's face recognition feature. Though the OnePlus 5T carries roughly the same physical space as the OnePlus 5, the screen has been increased from 5.5 inches to 6.1 inches. To answer this question, let's take a quick look at what the 5T has to offer with respect to the OnePlus 5.

OnePlus 5T Price starts at $499.

Its much costlier counterpart, the iPhone X, on the other hand, sports a height of 144mm, is 71mm wide. Unfortunately, it hasn't made a comeback with the OnePlus 5T either. We'll dive into the upgrades over the 5, if it's a phone to consider, and also about where OnePlus is headed.

Now the OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 whereas the iPhone X runs on iOS 11. However, the OnePlus 5T comes with an increased resolution of FHD+ (2160×1080), and this will surely hit the performance, but we assume that it won't be a significant hit. The secondary camera uses "Intelligent Pixel" technology that merges four pixels into one, reduces noise and enhances clarity in low-light environments.

In comparison, the iPhone X also offers a dual camera set-up which features optical zoom.

The OnePlus 5T comes with a 3,300mAh battery, which supports the company's Dash Charge fast charging technology.
