OnePlus 5T unveiled: edge-to-edge display and a dual-camera optimized for low light
OnePlus has just launched its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 5T. The 5T carries over most of the internal components, including the Snapdragon 835 chipset, from its predecessor the OnePlus 5, but comes with a very obvious change on the exterior: The AMOLED screen now features an 18:9 aspect ratio and covers almost the entire front of the device, as it is en vogue this year.
Another important change can be found in the camera department: The 5T comes with the same 16MP main camera as the OnePlus 5, but instead of a telephoto module the secondary camera slot now houses a 20MP sensor that has been optimized for low-light performance.
Like on the main camera, the sensor is coupled with a fast F1.7 aperture, but is using what OnePlus calls 'Intelligent Pixel Technology' to merge four pixels into one, reducing image noise and improving sharpness. The system kicks in at light levels lower than 10 Lux... which is pretty dim.
Of course, a background-blurring portrait mode is on board as well, and a new multi-frame algorithm helps improve image quality when using the function in low light. OnePlus also says the new camera setup offers a similar zoom performance to the OnePlus 5's camera.
Most other components, including the unibody metal shell, remain unchanged from the OnePlus 5. The 5T will be available from November 21st at $500 for the 64GB model with 6GB or RAM, and $560 for the 128GB version with 8GB of RAM. This makes the smartphone, like its predecessors, a real bargain when compared to most competitors.
We have our hands on a test device, and are eager to check the performance of the new dual-camera over the coming days.
