Why OnePlus 5T was launched a few month after OnePlus 5

Launch of OnePlus 5T. What Features are we expecting ?

So, for a company that stresses the need for prioritising the wishes of its fan community first, it thus becomes important to ask, if there really was any need for the kind of mid-cycle upgrade we've seen with the 5T.

As mentioned, the basic size and shape of the 5T reminds us a lot of the LG V30 or the Google Pixel 2 XL. The home button's gotten tossed out as a result, so the fingerprint scanner is now located at the back. The phone is distinctly different from both of those handsets, though.

The operating system that OnePlus uses, called "OxygenOS" offers a faster and refined Android experience.

The phone is very slim, but feels a little wide at 6.15 by 2.95 by 0.29-inches (HWD) and 5.7 ounces. The phone is still new so case options are somewhat limited. Thereafter, you won't get stable builds. The device looks fantastic with its 6-inch bezel-less AMOLED display. It means the phone won't work with Google's Daydream VR; it just isn't high-res enough.

Given the small changes, OnePlus 5T has a small price difference compared to the OnePlus 5.

There is no denying that overall, the 5T comes off as a more well-rounded device because of the addition of the bigger display, better design, tweaked camera module and inclusion of a surprisingly fast facial recognition-based unlocking system.

The iPhone X, naturally, will ship running iOS 11.

On this episode of the Droid Life Show, we're talking (as you probably grabbed from the title) about the latest phone from OnePlus, the OnePlus 5T.

The OnePlus 5T features Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset mated to either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, same as that on the OnePlus 5.

Storage-wise, the OnePlus 5T comes with either 64GB or 128GB built-in, while the iPhone X offers a choice of 64GB or 256GB. Thankfully, the audio jack is here to stay. As its name suggests, it's an evolution of the OnePlus 5. There's no wireless charging, but the phone can fast charge.

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.

OnePlus cut a few corners with connectivity. They also cost more, of course. Although the company did not reveal the exact date when the two smartphones will be getting the OS version, it said that OnePlus 5T will get Android O in early next month.
