OnePlus has already upgraded its previous flagships which include the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5 with Google’s latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. And now, OnePlus 5T also joins the list of handsets to run Google’s latest Android Oreo OS.
The OnePlus 5T has mostly garnered a positive feedback from customers as well as reviewers since its launch. The handset is essentially an upgrade to the original OnePlus 5. Both handsets feature the same hardware, though the 5T incorporates the increasingly popular trend of reduced bezels having an aspect ratio of 18:9.
