This feature was the headline of the update and it was officially announced on OnePlus forums that OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will not get support for it.

It's worth noting that OnePlust 5T isn't a budget smartphone, but costs Rs 32,999 for 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant and Rs 37,999 for the 8GB + 128GB configuration model in India. The design and polish of 5T makes it look like the refined version of the OnePlus 5.

The decision by OnePlus is an expected one, especially considering that it does not view the OnePlus 5T as a major upgrade to the OnePlus. The full OTA (over-the-air) update for the Android 8.0 OS will start rolling out in early 2018 for OnePlus 5 smartphones. You can also buy it on company's official website OnePlusStore.in, from 12pm to 1pm IST, open to all customers. It may have been better if they waited a few months before purchasing a OnePlus smartphone, but they might not have thought that the OnePlus 5T would come so soon.

OnePlus 5T's another highlight is its upgraded camera with lower aperture. The user base said that there is an improvement in the display quality compared to the OnePlus 5 and they even thought it was a QHD panel. Thus OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are similar when it comes to features.

Commenting on the performance of the OnePlus 5T in is first early access sale, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India said, "OnePlus 5T is our endeavor to share the latest and greatest technology with our community; but the biggest validation for us is the positive feedback from consumers who have shown heartwarming response on the day 1 of sales on Amazon.in". If we talk about new things in this phone a new edge-to-edge display, face unlock and a slightly updated camera system, the OnePlus 5T mostly goes with the same hardware as its predecessor. It has the same 3300mAh battery that supports Dash Charging tech.

We gave the OnePlus 5T an impressive 4.5/5 score in our review, lauding the device's good OLED screen, slick software experience, excellent value for money, and seriously fast operation. The smartphone will be powered by the Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, along with Adreno 540 GPU.

As for camera, the device has a dual rear camera setup and includes a 16MP Sony IMX398 sensor along with f/1.7 aperture and a 20MP Sony IMX376K camera sensor with f/1.7 aperture and dual LED flash. At the front there's again a 16-megapixel Sony IMX371 sensor, also seen on the OnePlus 5. Since OnePlus is competing with brands like Samsung and Apple in the premium smartphone segment, it strives to offer features that are available on the recent flagship phones by its competitors.
