The successor to OnePlus 5 also comes with 'Face Unlock' security feature, a first in its price segment. The OnePlus 5T will make its way to India through a sale scheduled for 4:30 pm IST today by e-commerce website Amazon. The Amazon sale, however, has been kept exclusively for Amazon Prime members. Simultaneously, the device will also be up for grabs on the official website of OnePlus as well as in the experience stores of the company.

As for its specifications, the OnePlus 5T features a 6.01-inch Full Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution and protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. OnePlus has also introduced Face Unlock in the OnePlus 5T as a first in the OnePlus devices and claims it to unlock the phone in 0.4 seconds. However, the Face Unlock feature does not work with third party Payment apps. OnePlus 5T is powered by Snapdragon 835 Soc and will be available in two storage options - 6GB RAM/64GB internal storage and an 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage option. It runs the latest OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The smartphone is backed by a 3300 mAh battery which also features OnePlus' signature Dash Charging.

In terms of optics, the OnePlus 5T sports a dual camera setup at the back, which claims to deliver an improved performance in 'Low-light photography' and 'Portrait' images over the OnePlus 5. Though the smartphone carries almost similar camera-hardware specifications as in OnePlus 5, the secondary lens on the OnePlus 5T features Intelligent Pixel Technology and a wider aperture. OnePlus 5T also features a 3.55 mm headphone jack.
