OnePlus has launched its second flagship smartphone in 2017, the OnePlus 5T at a price of US $499. The device will be available globally on and will go on sale in India on the 21st of November via a flash sale exclusively on Amazon.
The OnePlus 5T is an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 5 which was launched in June 2017. The hardware is more or less the same as the OnePlus 5, with a new design and display size. The OnePlus 5T is more in line with 2017 flagship phones with thin bezels and a tall display which has become a norm in 2017 flagship phones like the Galaxy Note8 and the iPhone X.
The OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 px [...]
OnePlus cannot seem to catch a break. A few days after it was revealed that OnePlus left an application that allowed backdoor entry to OnePlus devices, a new application has been found recording sensitive data and storing it unencrypted inside the phone. This app is reportedly called OnePlusLogKit and, like its name suggests, logs an extensive amount of user data.
The same researcher who exposed the EngineerMode app a few days ago has made the new revelation as well. The researcher wrote in a post that all of the user data stored by this app is unencrypted, and also added that this data could also likely be sent to China. The researcher, who goes by the moniker of Elliot [...]
Up until a few weeks ago, the OnePlus 5T seemed like a mythical entity created by someone with a Twitter handle. A series of hoaxes were followed by some believable leaks and then finally, OnePlus confirmed that the device is real. The OnePlus 5T, just the OnePlus 3T was to OnePlus 3, will be an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 5. So, people who have recently bought the OnePlus 5 should not feel disappointed and for people waiting to upgrade to a new phone, the 5T makes more sense than the OnePlus 5.
Pete Lau blogged about what the pricing technique will be for the OnePlus 5T. He did not explicitly say that the OnePlus 5T will be more expensive than the OnePlus 5t but, [...]
The OnePlus 5T will be launched globally on the 16th of November at an event in New York. But, before the smartphone is launched, there are a few leaks that need attention. This new leaks sheds some light on what the camera performance of the OnePlus 5T might be like. It appears that OnePlus has decided to drop its troubled telephoto lens in favour of a lens better equipped for handling low light scenes.
This leak corroborates with an early review of the OnePlus 5T’s camera which said that said the OnePlus 5T’s secondary lens will offer the same focal length as the primary lens, as well as a similar wider aperture to boost low-light photography.
Some digging into the deep system apps on OnePlus phones has resulted in the exposure of the vulnerability that OnePlus devices possess. A developer has found an application that can be manipulated into to granting a backdoor root access. In a Twitter thread, the developer explained how he was able to gain root access and surprisingly, the app has been pre-installed on all current OnePlus phones, and on OxygenOS for OnePlus One.
<Thread> Hey @OnePlus! I don't think this EngineerMode APK must be in an user build…????This app is a system app made by @Qualcomm and customised by @OnePlus. It's used by the operator in the factory to test [...]
2017 has been a great year for a smartphone enthusiast. From the increasing craze for dual-cameras to constantly shrinking bezels, the smartphones launched in 2017 so far have seen it all. However, as we reach the end of 2017, there are few exciting phones that have not yet hit the shelves in the Indian market. Let’s take a look at the top phones that will go on sale in India in the nest two months:Moto X4
The much-awaited smartphone from Motorola will be launched in India on the 13th of November and subsequently go on sale via Flipkart. The phone is expected to be priced between Rs 20000 – Rs 25000.

The launch of the OnePlus 5T is just around the corner but, leaks of the phone appear to have picked up its pace. After a recent listing of the OnePlus 5T was leaked, new images of the upcoming smartphone shed all the light we need on the phone and what it will look like.
The images reveal the new design of the OnePlus 5T with thin bezels and a tall display. As expected the phone in the images is running near stock Android 7.1 Nougat. Dash charging text is also visible at the bottom that reinstates that these images might be the real deal. Apart from the phone, a host of cases for the OnePlus 5T have also been leaked and it appears that OnePlus has added a few new [...]
The OnePlus 5T is set to be launched on the 16th of October at an event in New York. Before the launch however, the OnePlus 5T has showed up on GeekBench giving us a few details of the internals.
The first thing to notice in this image is the score. It scores 1959 in single-core and 6742 in multi-core test which is the highest for an Android phone running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. It is worth noting that the OnePlus 5 was embroiled in benchmark cheating controversy at the time of its launch.
Other than the best in class benchmark scores, the OnePlus 5T model in the benchmark tests is running Android 7.1 Nougat and not Android 8.0 Oreo.
The upcoming OnePlus 5T appears to be the 2017 flagship phone that OnePlus 5 should have been. A tall display with thin bezels, dual-cameras, great hardware and rumoured competitive pricing. One thing that would be missing from the OnePlus 5T is wireless charging. OnePlus believes that its ‘Dash Charging’ is better than wireless charging hence, it decided to forego including wireless charging.
