The company, which today unveiled its latest OnePlus 5T at an event in NY, is betting on the new device to help further consolidate its position in the Indian market. Brian Yoon, the head of user experience at the company, spoke about how the company chose to keep OxygenOS similar to stock Android for ease of use, battery life, lack of bloatware, and memory optimisation, among other aspects. Speaking of security options, the fingerprint sensor is now on the back.
In the early days, OnePlus was telling us that you shouldn't have to settle when you buy a phone and that by choosing theirs, you were getting everything you needed. This device has a large 6.01-inch 18:9 Optic AMOLED display that pushes a Full HD+ resolution of 2160×1080 pixels.
Of course, under the hood it shares some of the internals with the OnePlus 5, but the camera setup on the back is new as well.
The display clocks in at 6-inches, compared with the 5.5-inch effort found on the OnePlus 5.
OxygenOS 4.7 is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
OnePlus' decision to launch the T phones was a peculiar one but one I think many were glad they did.

The objective of the protest was to prevent anyone inside from leaving, Peace Action Wellington spokeswoman Emma Cullen said. Ardern, who previously reiterated NZ's offer, criticised Australia's unyielding stance on Sunday.
Little has changed on the front camera though, as both are 16-megapixels.
OnePlus 5T will be available starting November 21 in North America, Europe and India. You can now unlock the phone with your face for instance.
OnePlus is trying to make up for the relocation by offering an alternate unlocking solution using facial recognition technology. To OnePlus' credit, though, it does do a decent job at communicating its efforts in the forums on what changes are being fixed and when the fixes will come through, so if there are issues with the software at all it's not unlikely that users of the OnePlus 5T who install the Oreo beta software when it lands will have all the information from the company on what's happening. OnePlus is already working on Android Oreo 8.0 update for its devices but there is no confirmed date for the Oreo update. But, things such as wireless charging and water-resistance features are still missing. This new device is the company revised take on the flagship segment. OnePlus has incorporated an electronic image stabilization feature into the rear camera that works when shooting 4K, 30-FPS video, as well. The former camera is the same one that's on the OnePlus 5 but the latter camera is different, ditching a telephoto lens for a focus on low light performance.
The other significant change is in the camera. The manufacturer says the facial recognition feature works 99% of the time it can see the user's eyes and nose, but the company warns that the feature isn't secure enough for use in a mobile payment system or other high-stakes applications.
Processor Leveraging the power of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip yet again, the OnePlus 5T seems to perform in similar fashion to its sibling in the OnePlus 5 from a short few months ago. This is hidden by default, creating a pleasing full-screen effect on apps, but can be revealed by swiping up and can even be pinned in place if you prefer.
