Now it’s the full-screen smartphones era. This new and fashionable trend has gone viral when the Chinese Apple, Xiaomi launched the Mi MIX. Though this phone didn’t hit the US and European markets officially, it had a huge impact on the overall changes. The second-gen Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 launch was set to happen on the same date of the iPhone 8 release conference. This simply means the mentioned model has been made with ambitions in mind to conquer the world. Maybe Xiaomi will reach its goals, but with the launch of full-screen smartphones, it began a new game where all smartphone makers take participation. Therefore, the competition for the best bezel-less screen phone has just begun. Almost all manufacturers have already announced their full-screen handsets. People are already wondering which border-less smartphone is better – the Vivo X20, Oppo R11s, Nubia Z17s, iPhone X, Huawei Mate 10 or the second-level models such as the Leagoo S8, Blackview S8, Vernee MIX 2, etc. All these models will find their customers. But the OnePlus 5T was announced earlier today. This means they should cheer up. This is the improved variant of the OnePlus 5, which has beaten all the records at AnTuTu benchmark in terms of performance.
The OnePlus 5T launch date has been set to be November 16, while the ship date is November 21. This means you can start ordering your own model in a week. Though we have got acquainted with the most specs of the OnePlus 5T, it’s recommended to learn the officially announced features.
OnePlus 5T Specs
The improved version of the original OnePlus 5 comes with a Snapdragon 835 chip, 6/8GB of LPDDR4X memory and 64/128GB UFS2.1 storage. There is also a 3300mAh battery supporting Dash Charge. Finally, the phone runs on Oxygen OS 4.7 based on Android 7.1.1. Thus nothing changed. Actually, these are the best configuration for current top-notch flagships. But there’s a question that drives me – will the 3300mAh battery be sufficient for a larger screen OnePlus 5T?
OnePlus 5T Camera
Many think the key feature of the OnePlus 5T is the dual-camera. But dual-camera (even quad-camera) is an ex-trendy feature of 2016. I mean it was very popular last year, but now there are myriads of similar handsets, and most of them are priced under $200. So the 16+20MP dual-camera module of the OP5T should be accepted something good but regular. The camera uses a Sony IMX398 sensor as well as Sony IMX376K sensor. They come with a f/1.7 aperture, dual-color warm flashlight, dual-core DCAF support, and 4K video recording support at 30fps. However, this camera differs from the industry level that uses an RGB and a Monochrome combination. It comes with an iPhone 7 Plus-like camera system. As for the front camera, it still uses the same sensor found on the OnePlus 3T. But the 16MP Sony IMX371 sensor is capable of providing a great camera performance due to the f/2.0 aperture and 1.0 microns pixel size.
OnePlus 5T Is Worth Buying
When the OnePlus 3 succeeded last year many were wondering how it’s possible to design a smartphone for the half price of top brands and provide almost identical (or better) performance. The same question still stands there. People wonder why to pay more if they can pay the half of the iPhone X and get a high-end smartphone with many similar features. Moreover, the OnePlus 5T is already compared with many models that have managed to win customers’ hearts. Among them, we can find the LG G6, Nokia 8, Essential Phone, HTC U11, Google Pixel 2 and so on. They are all priced around $500, and I am sure many of you will choose the OnePlus 5T. No need to look for many differences between the OnePlus5 and OnePlus 5T, because they have been made with different purposes in mind. The former one was out as the main flagship of the manufacturer, while the second one has come to be the company’s representative in the border-less smartphones market. At last, there are two versions you can choose from – the 6+64GB variant is priced at $499.99, while the 8+128GB model is sold for $559.99. The OnePlus 5T price tags really amaze.
