OnePlus 5T, the new flagship smartphone from China-based OnePlus was launched last month. After its international debut, the smartphone was announced for the China market.
In China, OnePlus 5T’s first sale took place today. However, prior to that, the China-based online retailer JD.com announced that it received over 450,000 reservations ahead of the sale. The numbers were achieved within just 48 hours as the phone was announced on November 28.
Both variants of the smartphone — one with 6GB RAM and another with 8GB of RAM were available for purchase in China in Midnight Black colour. Another colour variant — Lava Red, which was announced exclusively in China, will go on sale from December 17.
The OnePlus 5T is already available for purchase in India, Europe and the US. In terms of specifications, it is not much different from its predecessor, except for display and camera.
The smartphone comes with a 6.01-inch Optic AMOLED display that covers the major portion of the front panel due to the screen-to-body ratio of around 80 percent. The display has a Full HD+ with a screen resolution 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. The 6GB RAM model comes with 64GB storage while the 8GB RAM model has 128GB internal storage. The device packs 3,300mAh battery which also supports company’s own Dash Charging technology.
Due to the full-screen display with narrow bezels, there is no space for the home button. Thus, the fingerprint sensor has been placed on the back side instead of being embedded in the home button.
The phone comes with a rear-mounted dual camera system that features a f/1.7 aperture 16-megapixel camera sensor and a f/1.7 aperture 20-megapixel camera sensor. There is also a front-facing camera of 20-megapixels which has a f/2.0 aperture. It is running Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system based Oxygen OS 4.7.
