The mobile platform enables a more streamlined software development process, resulting in faster, more consistent updates guided largely by user feedback. Given that OnePlus 5T and co will not have this feature even after the update to Android 8.1 Oreo, it means that software updates will still be handled in the same manner as the case of Nougat.
Much to the delight of OnePlus 5 owners who are awaiting the next Android update on their devices, we have got a good news indeed.
Now, nearly doubling its market share in the premium category - capturing 28 per cent market share in the third quarter this year - Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has introduced its 5T flagship device. The Chinese company has already made the smartphone available for pre-order.
Continuing with its precedent of introducing a "T" variant - OnePlus 5 that came five months ago became the bestseller - 5T with a few hardware changes and no change in pricing makes OnePlus 5 nearly obsolete. But if you don't happen to own a OnePlus 5, then the OnePlus 5T is a no-brainer. Off the bat, we can say that the OnePlus 5T is NOT waterproof, so don't throw it into the ocean just yet. Prices start at Dollars $499/EUR 499/GBP 449.
The USP of the device is the full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Additionally, on signing-in to Amazon Prime Video app with your OnePlus 5T, customers can earn Amazon Pay Balance worth Rs 250. According to OnePlus, the handset's camera is designed in a manner so as to deliver quality performance especially in low-light settings.
New features are vetted by OnePlus users through channels like the OxygenOS Beta Program and only added once OnePlus is confident the features can improve the way users use their phone. However, this update will leave out one of the most essential parts of Oreo - Project Treble.
