OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5T leaked in an Unboxing video ahead of the Launch

OnePlus is finding it difficult to keep the secrets this time. Recent leaks have revealed almost everything about the device. The latest flagship device by OnePlus is due to launch on November 16 in New York, but the OnePlus 5T leaked again in an Unboxing video by a YouTuber. It seems like OnePlus sent out review units to tech journalists globally but forgot to mention an embargo. ZDNET Germany was the first to put all the images online and later took them down. The company might have reminded them of the embargo which was missing in the beginning.

The unboxing video was also taken down following the embargo. Several live images were posted on Twitter showing the device in its full glory and side by side with the OnePlus 5. Earlier, Evan Blass posted an HD image of the device showing the upper half and the gorgeous 18:9 display confirming the rumors.

OnePlus has already confirmed that the device will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and will not support wireless charging following the Aluminium frame. The OnePlus touted their Dash Charging technology to be better than the wireless charging.

Check out the full unboxing video below:

That being said, let’s take a look at the spec sheet.

OnePlus 5T Specifications

  • The device will feature a 6.01 inch AMOLED display with 1080 X 2160 resolution (401ppi).
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Octa-Core processor with Adreno 540 GPU.
  • 8GB/6GB RAM along with 64GB/128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage.
  • 3,300mAh non-removable battery with Dash Charge.
  • USB Type-C with dual nano-SIM support with 3.5mm Headphone Jack.
  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
  • A 16MP primary + 20MP secondary sensor at the back and a 20MP front-facing camera (just like the new OPPO R11s).

There is not much change in the design and build quality, a taller and a bezel-less screen brings onscreen navigation keys and the fingerprint sensor is now placed at the back of the device. The OnePlus 5T retains the anodized Aluminium body with 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C connector with Dash Charge technology. OnePlus 5T also features an improved Face UnLock following the footsteps of Samsung and Apple iPhone X.

Price and Availability

OnePlus is set to launch the OnePlus 5T on November 16 at a global event in New York. The device will go on sale starting November 21 exclusively via Amazon India. If rumors are to be believed the new flagship will cost the same as the OnePlus 5. However, we expect the OnePlus 5T to cost around Rs 35,000 in India for the 64GB variant.
