The firm's decision to scrap the telephoto lens featured by the dual-camera setup of the OnePlus 5 in favor of another wide-angle module was directly prompted by its desire to allow the OnePlus 5T to deliver better images in poor lighting conditions but initial feedback prompted it to do even more in this regard, Mr. Pei suggested.

Now, nearly doubling its market share in the premium category - capturing 28 per cent market share in the third quarter this year - Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has introduced its 5T flagship device. So, does the options of RAM and Storage- there are two options 6GB RAM and 64GB Internal storage, the second variant is 8GB RAM with 128GB Internal storage. The OnePlus 5T carries its own traditional design which is a brand mark. For now, OnePlus 5T comes up in Midnight black only but soon it is expected to come in different colors. This means that once the current stock is cleared, there won't be any OnePlus 5 handsets on the market. There are much more changes that the phone makers have done in the smartphone. "The same goes for the OnePlus 5, which will also be sold out in sometime, and we'll have only one product OnePlus 5T in the market".

At a price tag of Rs 32,999, OnePlus 5T is also one of the cheapest in the market to sport 8GB RAM.

OnePlus 5T's another highlight is its upgraded camera with lower aperture. Vikas said that people should not see one plus 5T as a brand-new phone but they should see the phone as new variant of one plus 5. The OnePlus 5T also exchanged the zoom capabilities of the OnePlus 5 for better pictures in low-light situations and comes with a new Face Unlock feature that are in certain situations better than the iPhone X's Face ID.

The Chinese firm has also introduced a Referral Leaderboard, valid between November 21 and November 30, which provides Rs. 1,000 off on OnePlus accessories to referred OnePlus 5T buyers on the OnePlus online store, and 200 redeemable points to the referrer per referral.

The rear-mounted ceramic fingerprint scanner is quick and unlocks the phone in a jiffy.

The OnePlus 5T features a 6.01-inch full-HD+ (1080x1920 pixels) Full Optic AMOLED with an 18:9 aspect ratio, 401ppi pixel density, and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

In terms of specifications too, the duo run on the same Qualcomm's same top-end flagship processor, octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, clocked at up to 2.45GHz with Adreno 540 GPU. Another common feature is Dash Charge for fast charging. At its launch event, OnePlus said that the Android 8.0 Oreo update will rollout for both the models early next year.

While there is no change on the battery front when compared with OnePlus 5, the device lasted an entire day on a single charge on moderate use.
