The latest to embrace this trend is OnePlus with its 5T smartphone, an updated version of the excellent OnePlus 5, which was released back in June. The OnePlus 5T is in the exact same position, as it's launching with Nougat for the software out of the box. The OnePlus 5T is available in three colour variants - Midnight Black, Slate Gray and Soft Gold. Also, the screen gets a 18:9 aspect ratio within a build similar to the OnePlus 5, thanks to a 80.5 per cent screen to body ratio. It has the same camera-hardware specifications as in OnePlus 5.

The OxygenOS 4.7, the latest version, makes good use of the added real estate. The company also says it's improved readability in sunlight by dynamically adjusting contrast - a useful feature that Samsung and other have been doing for a few years.

Other than these changes, it's essentially the same phone as the OnePlus 5. Instead, it has a basic screensaver function that activates when the phone's plugged in.

OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 3T Specs: Has there been many upgrades? For starters, it's still more than detailed from a normal distance, colors appear punchy in tone, and there's a satisfying amount of clarity at wide viewing angles.

The switch to a bigger screen necessitated changes to the chassis.

OnePlus has designed the OnePlus 5T with a metal chasis with optimised ergonomics to save the device from looking like "an uninspired brick". It's also slightly heavier (162g vs 153g), though you'd be hard-pressed to notice the extra weight. This is going to be a USP for the OnePlus 5T.

British inflation steadies at five-year high in October
But the increases were offset by the falling motor fuel and furniture prices and the costs of owner occupied housing. Pulses continued to show a fall in prices at a higher pace, of 23.1 per cent compared to 22.5 per cent in September.

However, with the fingerprint scanner relocated to the rear of the handset, OnePlus has been able to ensure that the form factor of the OnePlus 5T is broadly the same as its predecessor. For selfies, OnePlus has opted for a 16-megapixel sensor.

With improved aperture, OnePlus claims the 5T is its best ever phone for low light photography.

The OnePlus 5T features the same main camera as that of the OnePlus 5. It will be available exclusively on Amazon, and OnePlus online store. But they afford a lot of customizability. We couldn't fetch any samples shot on OnePlus 5T, but we'll be sharing unedited images when we review the sample. The icons are different, and they're placed closer together. If you've been following our reporting, none of the specs for the smartphone should come as a surprise, but we'll still give you a rundown of what you'll find inside. The power efficiency too, has been increased by 20% in the new platform. 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. OnePlus says that it "uses over 100 identifiers" to match imprints within 0.4 seconds. That said, it's still a fast and convenient way to unlock your device.

The front 16-megapixel camera comes with Sony's IMX 371 sensor with f/2.0 aperture, which also allowed OnePlus to implement Face Unlock, one of the first for OnePlus smartphones. It comes with a dual camera setup on the back.

There's also a handful of new additions, most notably a soft-key shortcut bar to replace the physical button and lights of the old bezel.
