In an era when these ultra-premium smartphones are increasingly becoming the new norm for flagships, the OnePlus 5T is a delightful and defiant offering that provides for the comforts we crave in these ultra-premium devices, but without the enormous cost.

Back to more important news, though, our review unit should be arriving soon and we'll have all of the unboxing, hands-on, and review goodness to come! The Chinese tech firm will be starting its sales in India from November 21.

One of the highlights of OnePlus 5T is its larger 6.01-inch screen with full HD+ (1080x2160 pixels) Optic AMOLED display. If you value convenience then you can use it without any hesitation. Yes, officially, there is no telephoto lens or X1.6 optical zooming capability what so ever.

Overall, the mobile will be a refined version of Oneplus 5.

If and when we find any new reports concerning the OnePlus 6T, we will keep you updated. From the look of things, you can say the 3T was simply a "Pro" or "Plus" variant of original OnePlus 3 - and so is the OnePlus 5T with respect to the OG 5, at least according to OnePlus.

Commenting on the performance of the OnePlus 5T in is first early access sale, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India said, "OnePlus 5T is our endeavor to share the latest and greatest technology with our community; but the biggest validation for us is the positive feedback from consumers who have shown heartwarming response on the day 1 of sales on Amazon.in". Just like the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, clocked at up to 2.45GHz, paired with either 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The display is protected by a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The company confirmed via its forum on Tuesday that its devices will not get the feature even after they're updated to Android Oreo. There is also a Face Unlock feature that the company claims uses over 100 facial features identity points to unlock the smartphone in 0.4 seconds.

Continuing with its precedent of introducing a "T" variant - OnePlus 5 that came five months ago became the bestseller - 5T with a few hardware changes and no change in pricing makes OnePlus 5 nearly obsolete. Although the company did not reveal the exact date when the two smartphones will be getting the OS version, it said that OnePlus 5T will get Android O early next month.
