After several weeks of leaks, the OnePlus 5T was globally unveiled on Nov. 16. The handset was made available for purchase on Nov. 21 in the U.S. and Europe. OnePlus 5T has met with overwhelming response on the first day of its sales as the company has tweeted that it has become its fastest selling smartphone in just 6 hours.
OnePlus 5T will be soon arriving in other markets. In India, Amazon had carried out a flash sale yesterday, but the official sales are expected to begin next Tuesday. In China, it will be available for buying starting from Dec. 1 after getting unveiled on Nov. 28.
The OnePlus 5T that is packed with some new features has arrived as an improved version of the OnePlus 5. The Chinese firm has recently confirmed that it will be discontinuing OnePlus 5 once its stocks are over.

The dimensions of OnePlus 5 and OP5T are almost similar, but the company has managed to include a larger 6.01-inch display on the OP5T by reducing its bezels. The inclusion of a larger display that offers a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5 percent has resulted in the relocation of the fingerprint sensor to the back panel of the handset.
The new OnePlus 5 features a new Face Unlock feature that allow users to unlock it by scanning their face. The smartphone also includes an improved pair of rear-facing camera sensors.
OnePlus 5T is running on Android Nougat out of the box. However, the company will be beginning with the rollout of Android Oreo beta in the next month followed by its stable release in early 2018. The OP5T continues to feature the standard 3.5mm audio jack. It is powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset and Dash Charge enabled 3,300mAh battery.
