OnePlus 5 will be discontinued when remaining inventory runs dry

The teardown also shows that there is no optical image stabilization on the OnePlus 5T's cameras, and that there seems to be no heat dissipation techniques applied for the Snapdragon 835 processor.

It's not surprising to see that the OnePlus 5T has been very well received by the community.

Those who are interested in picking one up can head over to the OnePlus website right now and purchase the OnePlus 5T. The Chinese company has already made the smartphone available for pre-order. Elsewhere, the OnePlus 5T also supports a face unlock feature akin to the iPhone X without deploying additional tech. The OnePlus 5 might have ticked most boxes, but it has definitely missed out on a full screen display.

During an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on OnePlus forum, Adam Krisko, the company's Beta program Project Manager said phones like OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will not support the key feature. It comes in 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB variants. The OnePlus 3T arrive a year ago just six months after the OnePlus 3.

While there is no change on the battery front when compared with OnePlus 5, the device lasted an entire day on a single charge on moderate use.

The OnePlus 6 rumors will gradually start swirling by the start of next year. Will you be upgrading from the five-month-old OnePlus 5? Project Treble will make it easier for other company's smartphones to receive Android updates quicker and for a longer duration.

Going forward though, with the assumed OnePlus 6 in 2018, OnePlus will have to use Project Treble on that model and beyond if it wants to give its users at least a relatively current build of Android at launch - either Oreo or whatever Android P is dubbed - which it'll need to if it wants to be competitive. OxygenOS offers a refined Android experience that is faster, cleaner and more customizable than other Android experiences. The OnePlus 5T's dual-lane storage, based on UFS 2.1, ensures faster app loading and read/write speeds. Rest of the specifications almost stay the same as the OnePlus 5.
