Well then, five months have passed since its initial release; and we are now faced with the prospect of OnePlus 5T being released by end-November. Here’s what we know of this phablet for now:

  • 6-inch Full HD Optic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~402 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 chipset, Octa-core (4x2.45 GHz Kryo & 4x1.9 GHz Kryo) processor, Adreno 540 graphics and 6GB/8GB RAM
  • Dual 20MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, 24mm, EIS (gyro) + 20MP with f/2.6 aperture, 36mm, phase detection autofocus, 1.6x optical zoom and dual-LED flash
  • 16MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture and 20mm, EIS (gyro), 1.0 µm pixel size
  • 64GB/128GB internal storage with no microSD expansion slot
  • Non-removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery with Fast battery charging (Dash Charge)
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • November 16th 2017 launch date

As you can see, there’s a couple of upgrades found on OnePlus 5T. First of all, you will quickly notice its larger 6-inch Full HD Optic AMOLED screen that bursts into life with Fullview display.

Regarding performance, OnePlus 5T is exactly similar except for its slightly faster processor on four of its cores. This means an extremely fast and powerful beast is under the hood of this phablet.

Want to have more fun with the already powerful camera? OnePlus 5T did it by upgrading the camera to a dual 20MP+20MP camera setup. You will be able to capture more details on it, and have more fun with bokeh effect. The 16MP selfie camera is still there for you to take selfies with ease.

Storage-wise, there are again two options for you to choose from – 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. If the difference isn’t that much, opt for the larger of the two; since there won’t be an expansion slot.

Moving on to the battery, a larger 3500 mAh battery will be found on OnePlus 5T. This is to cater to its larger screen size, which theoretically will use up more power in the long run.

Last but not least, the latest Android Oreo 8.0 will be available right out of the box upon OnePlus 5T release. This will ensure you have the best software combining with the best hardware, and ready to be used immediately.

Conclusion:

OnePlus 5T is for those who want a bigger smartphone with more specs on it. With it being so affordable, there’s no other competitor that can come close to it. Can’t wait for its release by this month-end.

OnePlus 5T is expected to be launched on November 16th, with a release being slated by the end of this month. There hasn’t been any confirmation on the price, but expect it to be just slightly higher than OnePlus 5 which retails for $479 USD for 64GB internal storage + 6GB RAM and $539 USD for 128GB internal storage + 8GB RAM. It will be available in only one colour – Slate Gray.
