OnePlus 5T flagship starts at $499, launches November 21

After weeks of rumors and leaks, OnePlus has finally announced the OnePlus 5T, the marginal step up from its other 2017 flagship smartphone.

OnePlus' new handset goes on sale November 21 in North America, Europe and India.

OnePlus also worked on refining the camera application. It charges via USB-C (and it's excellent but product-exclusive Dash Charge charger) and retains a headphone jack, but ships with no headphones. In turn, OnePlus had to move the fingerprint sensor from below the display to the backside. The OnePlus 5T fits in a footprint very similar to its predecessor, but includes a significantly larger display. OnePlus 5T will come in two variants, the first one with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage while the second variant will come with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. The resolution is still, however, Full HD.

These prices will ensure that OnePlus keeps a strong hold on its critical markets while providing a strong medium cost flagship option to higher end countries as well.

Just like the 5, the OnePlus 5T is launching with Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the company's OxygenOS.

The biggest difference is the larger 6-inch AMOLED display, which is crammed into a case that's nearly the same size as the 5.5-inch screen from the OnePlus 5. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection is also on board, as it was on the OnePlus 5. You'll be able to bag the 64GB model for £449, and the 128GB model for £499.

"While [the EngineerMode app] can enable adb root, which provides privileges for adb commands, it will not let third-party apps access full root privileges", said OnePlus. At 3400mAh, it's got 14 per cent more battery juice than the 3. It is equipped with 2.45 GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 6GB or 8GB of DDR4X RAM and 64GB or 128GB of flash memory. You also get an optional "hide" button like the one found on recent Samsung flagships, but OnePlus's version activates with one tap instead of two, making it much more intuitive. A quick half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 5T enough power for the day. And the phone's front camera comes with Auto HDR support. With the help of the new telephoto sensor, the phone will be capable of capturing better low light images. Newly added to OxygenOS is Face Unlock, which allows OnePlus users to unlock their phone just by looking at their device.

Cameras are looks on the surface to be as they were on the OnePlus 5 so you have a iPhone-like dual camera setup but there are some key differences. There's a 16-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/1.7 as before, but the secondary camera is now a 20-megapixel unit with the same aperture and focal length. OnePlus packs the 5T with a whopping 8GB RAM, a lot more than the 2GB or 3GB (Plus) in the iPhones.

With the 5T, OnePlus is bringing Face Unlock feature, which the company claims can unlock the device in 0.4 seconds flat.

You are probably watching along to the OnePlus live stream, but the OnePlus 5T is now official with enhanced and upgraded design over the OnePlus 5 that offer a new level of functionality and convenience.

The OnePlus 3 was priced at £329 when it first arrived in June 2016. And while some of us may not be comfortable with a 6-month cycle, it exists just to make OnePlus take a stand for the next year. Of note, the engineering app from the OnePlus 5 that people freaked out about last week will not ship on the OnePlus 5T.

The dimensions of the OnePlus 5T's unibody (156.1 x 75 x 7.3 mm) differ marginally from the OnePlus 5 (154.2 x 74.1 x 7.3 mm), as well.
