However, hands-on reviews of the OnePlus 5T are definitely more valuable than a list of OnePlus 5T specs and features. Practically speaking, the OnePlus 5T might as well be the same phone, with all the buttons and switches in the same place. It is priced at Rs 32,999 for the 64GB variant and Rs 37,999 for the 128 GB variant.

The device also comes with face-unlocking feature, similar to Apple's face ID for security objective apart from fingerprint sensor.

The camera of the OnePlus 5T retains the specifications of the OnePlus 5, although the secondary 20-megapixel sensor at the rear is different to that on the OnePlus 5. The company highlighted that the facial recognition feature will not work as an authentication method for app such as digital payment apps. Both sport full-screen designs, both offer dual camera setups and, although Apple claims its offering is the most accurate, both feature face-scanning technology. While Apple's proprietary Face ID may be as fast and reliable as most finger print scanners, what does it mean from the user perspective? Fresh information suggests that the Android 8.0 Oreo update for OnePlus 5T will be available at the start of next year. A successor to the OnePlus 5, and maintained on the lines of the OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5T is essentially a slightly improved device.

While the iPhone X is covered front and back in glass, and the sides in stainless steel, the OnePlus 5T is made of much lighter anodised aluminum. The 5T has a bigger screen (but not more pixels) and more processing horsepower than either of its competitors there, and OnePlus has a reputation for delivering terrific value for money. Instead of offering a telephoto option for the second camera like last time, OnePlus is focusing this time on low-light photography.

Now the OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 whereas the iPhone X runs on iOS 11. The OnePlus 5T's display uses AMOLED technology, measures 6in across the diagonal and has a resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 with a pixel density of 401ppi. The handset maker also announced a new Open Beta build for the OnePlus 3 and 3T phones, adding some new features and improvements to the beta Oreo firmware.

The battery capacity is kept the same at 3300 mAh and there is the Dash Charge support that gives about a day's usage with just 30 minutes charge.

The operating system that OnePlus uses, called "OxygenOS" offers a faster and refined Android experience.
