The OnePlus 5T was announced on November 16, and, it went on its first flash sale in India on November 21 through Amazon India. However, that sale was limited only to the Amazon Prime Members. Well, if you are not an Amazon Prime Member and were waiting to buy the OnePlus 5T, your wait is over, as the OnePlus 5T is now on open sale in the country.
Well, what that means is you don’t have to be Amazon Prime Member or wait for the flash sale to buy the OnePlus 5T. It can now be purchased anytime you want from Amazon India as well as from OnePlus Online Store.
In case you are unaware, the OnePlus 5T is a mid-cycle refresh to the OnePlus 5. It has hardware identical to the OnePlus 5, but, it now comes with a much better design.
The OnePlus 5T flaunts a bezel-less design and comes with a 6.01-inch Full Optic AMOLED display that has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and and aspect ratio of 18:9. Well, even with the larger screen, the overall device footprint is relatively smaller, which it seem just a hair taller than the OnePlus 5.
Also, as the bezels at the top and bottom are trimmed, the capacitive navigation keys are gone and the fingerprint scanner is moved on to the back. Moreover, the secondary telephoto lens found on the OnePlus 5 is now replaced with the one that OnePlus performs better in low-light conditions.
That said, the hardware underneath is still the same. You still get the Snapdragon 835 SoC which is laced with 6 or 8 GB RAM. The 6 GB RAM variant comes with 64 GB of internal storage and 8 GB RAM variant comes with 128 GB of internal storage. Even the pricing of the OnePlus 5 and 5T is same.
