OnePlus has officially unveiled its new OnePlus 5T smartphone, following weeks of teasing on social media.
The update to the warmly received OnePlus 5 comes with a new, 18:9 screen, similar to the widescreen efforts found on Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and the LG G6.
The display clocks in at 6–inches, compared with the 5.5–inch effort found on the OnePlus 5.
However, with the fingerprint scanner relocated to the rear of the handset, OnePlus has been able to ensure that the form factor of the OnePlus 5T is broadly the same as its predecessor.
The Full Optic AMOLED display features a dedicated sunlight mode, which adapts automatically in harsh lighting so that the screen remains visible, with colours bright and clear.
Round the back, OnePlus has retained the same dual camera setup which garnered such favourable reviews on the OnePlus 5, while boosting its secondary camera with a wider f/1.7 aperture.
The latter features Intelligent Pixel Technology, merging four pixels into one to ensure improved low light performance.
Not to be left behind by Apple’s new Face ID tech, the OnePlus 5T comes with its own face snapping smarts.
Face Unlock users 100 different identifiers to help unlock the device with just a glance.
Under the aluminium unibody frame the OnePlus 5T crams in up to 8GB of RAM, with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 64GB and 128GB storage options.
And as with all previous OnePlus phones, the 5T comes with Dash Charge, offering a day’s power after being plugged in for just 30 minutes.
The OnePlus 5T will be available from 21st November in the UK, costing £449 SIM free for a 64GB model, rising to £499 for 128GB.
O2 will be selling the device at dedicated pop ups in London, Manchester and Belfast.
The network is offering the device with 50GB of data for the price of 10GB, as well as 12 months of free Xbox Live Gold access.
