OnePlus is in the news these days as the company is going to launch the upgraded version of its highly popular OnePlus 5 of this year, the OnePlus 5T. Well, unlike last year, the 5T is coming with some significant design changes like the fingerprint scanner is now moved to the rear, there is an 18:9 display etc. Yesterday, the full spec sheet of the device leaked along with the hands-on images and guess what, today we have the full OnePlus 5T Unboxing and hands-on video that reveals every single detail about the device.
ONEPLUS 5T UNBOXING & HANDS ON
So, a well-known Tech YouTuber named Carl Konrad uploaded the video of the unboxing & quick review of the OnePlus 5T, but soon, it was taken down by him. Thankfully, some guys uploaded the video on their own channels and so, we have got the video of the phone. In this article, let us talk about the main highlights of the 5T, how it compares with its smaller brother in terms of the design and more.
One of the things that all the OnePlus fans missed in the OnePlus 5 was an 18:9 display that has become a trend this year. OnePlus said that they wanted to incorporate edge-to-edge display on the OnePlus 5, but they didn’t have the resources. With the OnePlus 5T, the company has finally done a significant design change by adding an 18:9 display on the front. With this, the fingerprint scanner is finally moving to the back, first for any OnePlus device so far.
The display on the front looks gorgeous, not just because it is now having an 18:9 aspect ratio, but also because it is an AMOLED panel. The image above clearly shows that OnePlus 5T has negligible bezels on the sides as compared to the OnePlus 5. To make the phone symmetrical from the front, the company has moved the fingerprint scanner to the rear.
The fingerprint scanner is circular which fits pretty well for the phone since it has got rounded edges. Just like we mentioned in our previous article, the camera bump is now slightly larger than the OnePlus. Rest of the design is the same that includes the position of buttons, ports, etc.
So, that display and the rear-facing fingerprint scanner is going to be the only thing that will differentiate OnePlus 5T from the 5 regarding the design.
It looks like OnePlus has also incorporated face recognition on the phone so, apart from the fingerprint scanner, the phone will also feature facial recognition that you can setup up from the welcome screen or the settings.
