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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
