India is a key market for OnePlus, and the company is looking to stay competitive in the mid-range segment with the OnePlus 5T. Practically speaking, the OnePlus 5T might as well be the same phone, with all the buttons and switches in the same place.

The OnePlus 5T has officially been unveiled, with a price tag of $499.

The OnePlus 5T will be available in 6GB RAM+64 GB storage and 8GB RAM+128 GB storage (midnight black) versions.

Launch of OnePlus 5T. What Features are we expecting ?

The device also comes with face-unlocking feature, similar to Apple's face ID for security objective apart from fingerprint sensor. OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau - formerly of Oppo - said the company has "refined every last detail" of the device, but it's really just modified an older handset manufactured by its sister firm. The facial recognition software of the Galaxy Note 8 is not as safe as one would have expected it to, and it's not as fast as the one featured by the OnePlus 5T either.

Critics have pinpointed that outdated design was one of the major faults of OnePlus 5.

The OnePlus 5T comes with Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system.

Its much costlier counterpart, the iPhone X, on the other hand, sports a height of 144mm, is 71mm wide. So without getting into the Android versus iPhone users debate we simply compare the features of the two phones. On the front, users will find the same 16MP sensor as they did on the OnePlus 5 that launched in the summer.

To begin with, the OnePlus 5T features a 6-inch full-HD+ Optic AMOLED screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio, with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. The dual 12MP camera is quite nice, however, the OnePlus 5T's cameras might prove to be even better. The firm also claims that its Intelligent Pixel Technology will see the secondary camera merges four pixels into one, reducing noise in low-light environments and enhancing clarity, while a new Portrait Mode will make your selfies less fuzzy, or something.

In comparison, the iPhone X also offers a dual camera set-up which features optical zoom. The OnePlus 5T also competes directly with the Nokia 8, which isn't bezel-less but comes with many extra features over then OnePlus 5T, such as, OIS-equipped primary camera, IP54 splash-resistance, and front autofocus camera.

It also boasts Dash Charge, which was first introduced with the OnePlus 3, and offers "enough power for the day" from a 30-minute charge.
