OnePlus 5T / Photo: The Verge

After just about 5 months of success of its Flagship Phone: OnePlus 5, OnePlus now has released its successor OnePlus 5T with Bezel Less Display on the board.

OnePlus considers its T series handsets to be an extension and evolution of its summer releases, taking what it’s already achieved and making it more relevant with a selection of significant updates.

The OnePlus 5T fulfills the brief, offering a pleasing array of upgrades that will keep fans of the brand happy without reinventing the wheel or upping the price. It’s the best phone the brand has ever made, and one that can mix it with the best handsets around without looking out of place.

And Some things OnePlus 5T has not:

  • No stereo speakers
  • The telephoto camera is gone for no immediately apparent reason
  • The OnePlus 5T should have been running Oreo out-of-the-box but lets hope we will see it someday sooner in future.

Here is the video review by GSM Arena, which will tell you the most about it.


A superb display in a trendy aspect ratio, excellent battery life, better camera (After OxygenOS Update) and fluid Android experience. The OnePlus 5T has the price to prop it up along with these flagship features. Value for money is the game, and OnePlus knows how to play it, and it looks like it will go strong with the OnePlus 5T in Nepal.

iHub, the sole authorised distributor of One Plus products in Nepal, is expected to price the phone at Rs. 64,900 for the 6GB/64GB version & for 8GB/128GB Version it is 72,900/-
