OnePlus 5 To Become Out-Of-Date As OnePlus 5T Rolls Out


Following the launch of its latest phone - the OnePlus 5T - OnePlus held an AMA on its official forums to answer any questions that its fans/customers had about the new tech.

Back to more important news, though, our review unit should be arriving soon and we'll have all of the unboxing, hands-on, and review goodness to come!

OnePlus 5T, which was launched on November 16, went on sale for the first time on November 21.

The device comes with a 6.01-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. By carrying more current and shifting the power management from the device to the adapter to keep the phone cooler during charging, Dash Charge can continue to fast charge the OnePlus 5T even while using Global Positioning System or playing graphically intensive games. The OnePlus 5T carries its own traditional design which is a brand mark.

Unlike what some initial users of OnePlus 5 had reported, we did not find any traces of "jelly scroll effect" on this device.

At the front there is a 16MP Sony IMX 371 sensor with f/2.0 aperture.

This smartphone is also equipped with excellent zoom feature which can click excellent images. The OnePlus 5T runs OxygenOS 4.7 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
