The OnePlus 5T has just been unveiled, the interim upgrade that repacks the OnePlus 5 to make it more enticing for the holiday shoppers. T is to the OnePlus what S is to the iPhone, which means the OnePlus 5T isn't a complete overhaul. It's mostly the same phone on the inside, but there are bigger changes on the outside this time.
The most obvious one is the display. No self-respecting smartphone maker would be seen exiting 2017 without a tall screen, and the 5T is OnePlus taking due care with an 18:9 6-inch FullHD AMOLED panel by Samsung - or a Full Optic AMOLED, as the company likes to call it.
The other change is the camera setup, and this has left us baffled so far. The OnePlus 5T comes with a couple of cameras on its back, one 16MP, the other 20MP, each paired with a 27mm-equivalent lens, and each of them capturing color images. So it's not a wide+tele, and it's not a color+monochrome, it's a OnePlus 5T.
That's pretty much all the T adds to the OnePlus 5 (or takes away, we're still debating). The rest is the same, but here's a refresher.
