Only five months after the launch of its latest smartphone, the chinese brand is getting ready to unveil a new product, the OnePlus 5T. As its name indicates, this is more of a refresh of the previous model (the OnePlus 5), that an innovation will be substantial. There remains, however, that the OnePlus 5T seems to us very promising.
The OnePlus 5T, a refresh .
For a place in the landscape of the mobile phone, OnePlus has developed a marketing strategy that very special, one to launch a new smartphone every 6 months or so.
So this is not a surprise if the design of this new phone is very similar to the OnePlus 5. Apart from the screen, 18:9, which now accounts for 80.5% of the phone and the location of the fingerprint sensor, nothing seems to have really changed.
(The OnePlus 5, to the left, and the new OnePlus 5T, to the right).
The 5T is one of the smartphones faster than it has currently, and this is thanks to the smart A11 Apple (same as the iPhone 8). His screen optical AMOLED display is superb and it is possible to unlock it thanks to the facial recognition of the phone (like the iPhone X). Android O is not yet available on this model but should be in the months to come.
The phone retains its Jack and its location to two nano-SIM but there is no port for an SD card, which means that it is not possible to add memory to this model. Finally, thanks to the charger Power Dash, the smartphone is recharging very quickly (up to one day of autonomy in 30 minutes).
The OnePlus 5T has something, but we regret that it is not water resistant and it can’t be recharged in wireless mode, like many other smartphones released this year.
OnePlus 5T : price and release date.
The OnePlus 5T will be available to purchase on November 21, 2017.
It will cost 499 € (6 Gb RAM and 64 Gb of storage) or 559 € (8 Gb RAM and 128 Gb of storage), comme the previous model.
The OnePlus 5T is definitely a good deal since in terms of technical characteristics, it aligns on the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the HTC U11 which are, respectively, 809 and € 659 €.
In addition, if you are a student, you can receive a discount of 10 % on all products OnePlus.
