OnePlus has officially launched its another flagship phone — OnePlus 5T. The phone featuring the bezel-less design and 18:9 aspect ratio that have become common in top-end smartphones. The 6-inch Full-HD+ Optic AMOLED (1080 x 2160px) display of the OnePlus 5T is the biggest ever for a OnePlus handset, and the camera is said to have been improved as compared to the OnePlus 5. Notably, OnePlus 5T has been launched at the same price as its predecessor — this will be a relief to those who are looking to buy a new smartphone, but a disappointment to those who bought the OnePlus 5 a few months ago.
OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau said in a statement, “The feedback on the OnePlus 5 has been very positive, but there were some areas where we saw room for improvement to create an even better user experience.”
