If you have a OnePlus 5T and you haven't received this update yet, you should get it soon.

The OnePlus 5T will be available on Amazon India on November 24 at 12PM. The OnePlus 5T will come in two configurations: 6GB LPDDR4X RAM + 64GB storage and 8GB LPDDR4X RAM + 128GB storage options. Now that there's a new OnePlus 5T, there won't be any production of the OG 5.

The OnePlus 5T doesn't have much impressive things inside, however, it regains a couple of features which was not available in the predecessor. The full OTA (over-the-air) update for the Android 8.0 OS will start rolling out in early 2018 for OnePlus 5 smartphones.

There can be many pros and cons to a smartphone, but the success of it is easily determined with how many people actually buy it. During a recent Ask Me Anything session on OnePlus forums, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed that the OnePlus 5 smartphone will not be receiving Face Unlock feature.

In addition to enhancing the visual appearance of the 5T, the large 6-inch display helps to improve the overall user experience. For the most part, we agree that the low-light sensor is more useful than a telephoto lens, but we did miss the ability to frame some shots better.

OnePlus also said they have no plan of entering the mid-range segment yet, well not until they are one of the "global leaders in the flagship segment". New display has an aspect ratio of 18:9, that being the reason for the taller display, and sports an odd resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels.

The Chinese firm has also introduced a Referral Leaderboard, valid between November 21 and November 30, which provides Rs. 1,000 off on OnePlus accessories to referred OnePlus 5T buyers on the OnePlus online store, and 200 redeemable points to the referrer per referral. The fingerprint sensor is moved on the rear panel and it can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor runs the show, there's a fingerprint reader on the back, and there's a battery that measures in at 3300mAh.

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.

The phone supports OnePlus' dash charging support and it supports fast charging feature as well. Also, the earlier OnePlus 3 model which was launched in May was discontinued in October due to the launch of OnePlus 3T. At the front there's again a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 sensor, also seen on the OnePlus 5.
