For the OnePlus 5T, the Oreo testing starts later next month. The news doesn't come as a surprise, though, given that nearly everything about the OnePlus 5T had already leaked online before the official announcement. If you purchased the OnePlus 5 then you're someone who already spent between $500-$560 on a new device in just the last five to six months, and with the OnePlus 5T launching next week you'll be looking at another $500-$560 as it will come to market for $499 or $559 depending on whether or not you choose the 64GB model or the 128GB model.

The OnePlus 5T in its 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage variant will sell at a price of Rs 37,999.

The 5T goes on sale in the United Kingdom on November 21. With that said, the recent surge of extra-expensive phones like the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X makes the 5T seem like a relative bargain.

In this post, we'll go over everything you need to know about each smartphone.

In order to accommodate the OnePlus 5T's larger display, OnePlus had to trim down the top and bottom bezels of the device. Watching movies and playing games on that massive display is every smartphone user's dream. What's different compared to the OnePlus 5? Another key highlight of the OnePlus 5T is the improved dual rear camera setup. The 5T's fingerprint reader is on the back of the device, right above the OnePlus logo. We recently reviewed the OnePlus 5 and found it to be promising. Also, unlike Apple, OnePlus has not dropped the fingerprint scanner altogether.

The OnePlus 5T will be first device from the company to feature an immersive display with a resolution of 18:9. Speaking of security options, the fingerprint sensor is now on the back.

Far-right activist Laura Loomer also lost her verification status, tweeting that the action equates to "a form of censorship". The move is quite a u-turn on previous year , when it opened up the verification to many more people by letting anyone apply.

Garmon added he didn't think it's appropriate for a man in his 30s to date someone who is 14 - let alone sign her yearbook. Five women have accused Moore of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers.

We'll give the 5T a full breakdown during our benchmarks, but first impressions are good so it looks like OnePlus has produced yet another victor. The difference between both phones is that OnePlus removed the telephoto lens over the 20MP sensor and gave it a standard lens with an f1.7 aperture. Here are three big OnePlus 5T offers that some users may find useful.

With "Intelligent Pixel" Technology, the secondary camera merges four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity. We're quite keen to test this particular feature.

This will help with low light photography.

OnePlus has taken this opportunity to make some tweaks to the interface.

So, what are the reasons to buy the OnePlus 5T? We did not have the chance to test the UI under pressure, but it worked without any glitches or lags during our test run. The 2017 has undeniably been the year of bezel-less screens and OnePlus, despite being in the premium was missing out on the biggest trend. For instance, swiping down on the camera UI brings up the basic settings such as flash, aspect ratio, timer and HDR.

The 162 grams weighing phone is just 7.3 mm thin and comes in 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants. There's a full evaluation coming, but it may be that the 5T won't be the high-end phone to pick if you want the ultimate smartphone camera, despite its relentless "Shot on OnePlus" social media campaigning.
