The company has not increased the price and kept the same pricing as its predecessor, OnePlus 5.The smartphone will go on sale from 21st November in select countries.

Yes, you can unlock the OnePlus 5T using your face and it's pretty much fast - perhaps even faster than the Apple iPhone X. Setting it up isn't such a hard thing and once done, the camera will always be in search of your face.

Our first recommendation is a case by OnePlus themselves.

Although, they aren't as huge as they are on the Google Pixel 2 XL. It stretches nearly, but not quite, to the edges on the left and right, leaving just over half a centimetre of bezel above and below the screen. With this year's upgrade being more cosmetic in nature - 18:9 edge-to-edge display, bigger size - the OnePlus 5 has been left looking stale overnight. It's made of a cool, somewhat slippery matte metal, but OnePlus is going to sell a bunch of natural-feeling cases for the phone.

OnePlus cut a few corners with connectivity. It said that both OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will be receiving the new OS version in open beta. The visual experience offered by the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is definitely better than the one of the OnePlus 5T, mainly due to the fact that this is a SuperAMOLED display.

The new OnePlus 5T comes with two rear cameras one comes with a 16 megapixel sensor and the other comes with a 20 megapixel sensor. It's now circular and has shifted to the rear, just above the OnePlus logo.

Qualcomm rejects Broadcom acquisition offer
Broadcom doesnt care about the outcome of that deal – it has stated that it wants to acquire Qualcomm with or without NXP. That would allow Qualcomm shareholders to vote to replace the company's board and force it to engage with Broadcom.


A case will help prevent damage or scratches to the dual cameras on the back of your phone, make it easier to hold and keep the 6-inch screen safe.

If you are among those who spends most of his time outside, this is one area where the OnePlus 5T could prove a better buy.

The two disappointments on the hardware front continue to be the lack of microSD expansion and of dust and water resistance, the latter of which is particularly baffling considering most rivals have at least IP67 protection.

Under the hood of the OnePlus 5T you'll find Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, naturally, paired with an Adreno 540 GPU, 8GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB built-in storage.

It also boasts Dash Charge, which was first introduced with the OnePlus 3, and offers "enough power for the day" from a 30-minute charge. Instead of offering a telephoto option for the second camera like last time, OnePlus is focusing this time on low-light photography. Both the cameras brings brighter f/1.7 apertures; the primary camera is 16MP while the lowlight shooter is a 20MP unit.
