After months of leaks, OnePlus 5T was unveiled to the world this Thursday. In fact, wireless charging has come to be a standard in all top-tier smartphones, but the OnePlus 5T misses out if one goes on to list the features on both phones and compare them. It is perhaps for this reason that the company chose to stick to the same price point as OnePlus 5 as well.
Rounding out the OnePlus 5T specs are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and RAM of up to 8 GB.
The device also comes with face-unlocking feature, similar to Apple's face ID for security goal apart from fingerprint sensor.
It has been 'enabled by TrueDepth camera for facial recognition, ' the company said. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the rear of the device to accommodate the all-screen display.
And then there's face unlocking, which OnePlus didn't quite make the song and dance over that Apple did. Talking further about the update, OnePlus has added DND User Interface, for more customisation of the feature.

The OnePlus 5 alone managed to carve out a 24.75% share in the premium smartphone category, and a price cut would make the device a much more enticing option for buyers.
The phone offers the fingerprint sensor, which takes a selfie when pressed longer.
Inside, the OnePlus 5T is identical to its forebear and I would expect it to produce near-identical benchmark results.
OnePlus has made a number of external improvements to the recent OnePlus 5, introducing slimmed down bezels and soft navigation buttons to make way for a larger six-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio OLED display.
In lighting below 10 lux, the OnePlus 5T will switch to the secondary camera, which can also combine four pixels into one to produce cleaner images in low light.
The iPhone X, on the other hand features two 12-megapixel rear cameras - one wide-angle, and another telephoto.
The OnePlus 3/3T are receiving another major beta update under the Nougat open beta program. The front camera on the handset features 16 megapixels and it also comes with a 3300 mAh battery. There's also Dash Charge support included, which OnePlus claims equip you with enough juice for the day after just 30 minutes.
