OnePlus 5T: Bigger screen, same design

No design overhaul here. The OnePlus 5T looks very much like its OnePlus 5 predecessor but with a larger screen.

After the release of its OnePlus 5 in July, OnePlus launched yet another flagship: the OnePlus 5T. As an incremental update to its predecessor, the phone features a bigger screen, face unlock and a relocated fingerprint reader.

The OnePlus 5T (left) now features thinner top and bottom bezels and a 6-inch screen. Compare this to the OnePlus 5's (right) 5.5-inch display.

Another look at the phones' displays. The OnePlus 5T retains the same 1080-pixel resolution and 401 pixels per inch, but its aspect ratio changed from 16:9 to 18:9.

The top and bottom bezels are thinner, and the fingerprint reader (which used to sit below the display) has moved.

The fingerprint sensor is now on the back of the phone, below the camera.

Despite the bigger screen, the physical size of the phone remains relatively the same. The OnePlus 5T (right) is a few millimeters taller and thicker, and about 0.3 ounces (9 grams) heavier, but you wouldn't notice a difference in real life.

The OnePlus 5T still features a Snapdragon 835 processor and a 3,300mAh non-removable battery.

On the phone's left edge is the alert slider, where you can toggle on/off between silent, do not disturb and ring.

The phone charges through a USB Type-C port and has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Though the OnePlus 5T still has two cameras -- a main 16-megapixel camera and a secondary 20-megapixel camera -- the latter is no longer a telephoto lens.

On the front is a 16-megapixel camera.

You can still shoot portrait photos with bokeh-style backgrounds. Just swipe to the right.

The secondary 20-megapixel camera has the same focal length as the 16-megapixel camera, but has a wider aperture than the OnePlus 5's telephoto lens for low-light shooting.

The OnePlus 5T runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will update to Android Oreo by Q1 of next year.

In general, the interface has remained the same and looks nearly like stock Android.

You can still use a number of gestures to navigate and use the phone.

Another feature that's new to the phone is face unlock. You can only use face unlock to unlock the lock screen, however, and it does not authorize digital payments like Android Pay.

At launch, the phone will come only in black (for now).

In the US, the phone costs slightly more, at $499 (64GB) and $559 (128GB). In the UK, however, the OnePlus 5T costs the same as its predecessor, at £449 and £499 (which converts to about AU$750 and AU$830).
