After rolling out the Oreo update for the OnePlus 5 as a Christmas gift, OnePlus is rolling out the first beta OxygenOS build of Android Oreo for the OnePlus 5T. This should make owners of the company’s latest flagship handset quite happy as they must be feeling left out after seeing older OnePlus flagships being updated to Oreo.
The OnePlus 5T is still relatively new in the market and is perhaps one of the best Android phones to buy right now. In terms of the features it brings to the table, Face Unlock appears to be a key highlight, given that it’s a first for the lineup. A new report claims that OnePlus’ implementation of this feature could be infringing on a handful of patents held by American company Sensible Vision.
The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T both have displays that support 1080p HD content, but the devices don’t actually support streaming content at that resolution.
The OnePlus 5T is the ‘T’ successor to the excellent OnePlus 5 from earlier this year. While the handset sports largely the same specifications as the 5, OnePlus have made some key design improvements and added some noteworthy new features.
OnePlus today announced a limited edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T variant in India that will be launching in the country on December 14.
The OnePlus 5T is the ‘T’ successor to the OnePlus 5 with some modest improvements and upgrades thrown in. This primarily includes a 6-inch 18:9 aspect ratio FHD+ display and an improved dual-camera setup at the rear.
Less than six months after the OnePlus 5 was unveiled, OnePlus has unveiled the 5T — a ’T’ upgrade to the handset. This move will likely anger many 5 owners who just got the handset but then the 5T is not a major upgrade over its predecessor. Its an evolutionary upgrade — an update just to ensure the phone keeps up with the time.
When OnePlus officially announced the OnePlus 5T, it did so with only one color option: Midnight Black.
Right up front I have to tell you, there’s nothing special to see here, nothing unique. Move right along. Unless you want a bargain Android flagship. You see, the USP here is the price. By taking imaging and durability down just one small notch from the top end, the OnePlus 5T manages to shave off many hundreds of pounds. While keeping the flagship internals and traditional OnePlus attributes and popular features. In short, it’s a hit!
With the OnePlus 5T going on launch earlier this week across the world, the company is now focusing on improving the various aspects of the device through a software update.
