Made out of a beautiful piece of machined aluminum, the OnePlus 5T has a gorgeous 6-inch Optic AMOLED display with an expanded 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen is vibrant and lush, with incredible color detail — way better than some of the other 6-inch screens out there right now.
OnePlus 5T shares almost identical dimensions with its predecessor OnePlus 5 and is only slightly bigger. The phone is 156.1 mm tall and 75 mm wide and weighs 162 grams. The phone features a 6.1 inch optic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080*2160 pixel and boasts of an aspect ratio of 18:9 ratio, in line with the latest trend among premium smartphones.
You get the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (for an extra $60), a huge 3300mAh battery and Dash Charge to give it half a day’s use in just 30 minutes, as well as features we shouldn’t have to point out but will like a headphone jack and an awesome speaker.
Then there’s the all-new dual camera setup, which continues OnePlus’s legacy of amazing photo and video quality with a new 20MP secondary sensor tuned for low light. You’ll have to see it to believe it, but this thing will make sure your food shots are superb even with the lights off.
The phone support dual SIM cards and runs on Oxygen OS 4.7 which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. OnePlus moved the fingerprint sensor to the back, which is totally fine because it’s still super fast and incredibly reliable.
And to add to the fun, OnePlus added Face Unlock, an awesome alternative to the fingerprint that just works — you turn on the power button and look at the screen and you’re in! It takes roughly 0.4 seconds to get into the phone; it’s so fast you can barely see it working. The two OnePlus 5T variants are priced at $499 / €499 and $559 / €559 in US / Europe, for those of you who are interested.
