Tech Tune In to the One Plus 5T Live launch Event

Just like the OnePlus 5 was, the 5T is also the fastest phone we have ever used besides the Pixel 2 this year.
The best news for the OnePlus fans is that the 5T is going to available at OnePlus 5'sprice.
The device comes in two variants - 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant priced at Rs 32,999 while the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant priced at Rs 37,999 in India. The first sale at 4.30PM that day will be reserved for the Prime subscribers of Amazon India.
Unlike the OnePlus 3T, the 5T does not get a notable bump over the previous generation in terms of core specs. These beta version (OnePlus usually calls them "Community Builds") will be available for download, but you'll need to flash them manually.
Sales will begin in Indian, North American and European markets from November 21.
So as to not upset OnePlus users who preferred the front-facing fingerprint sensor, the company is introducing its own face unlock technology.
The notable differences between OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 is that the former runs on OyxgenOS 4.7.0 which is an improvement over OxygenOS 4.5 on the OnePlus 5.
These prices will ensure that OnePlus keeps a strong hold on its critical markets while providing a strong medium cost flagship option to higher end countries as well.
On the front the OnePlus 5T has a 6.01-inch display and it stretches almost edge-to-edge. So, you will have to put up with Android Nougat until the company rolls out the software update. Of course, the minimal top and bottom bezels also means that there is no room for the fingerprint sensor on the front, so this is another change as it was moved to the back of the phone, and it may be something you want to consider if you preferred the sensor on the front.
A new Face Unlock feature is also here in a marketplace of other facial recognition methods such as Apple's Face ID and Samsung's limited iris scanning capabilities. The company has also now confirmed at the unveiling on Thursday in NY that the 5T has the thin bezels that give the 6-inch screen a larger screen-to-body ratio that are so in right now, and dual rear cameras. OnePlus has increased the capacity of the battery to 3,300 mAh to ensure that battery life does not take a hit as the screen size increases. And the phone's front camera comes with Auto HDR support. OnePlus decided it was better to focus on low light photography, and it says the additional detail from the secondary camera (which is 20 MP, rather than 16MP), makes it about as sharp as the old telephoto lens. The company is also using its "Intelligent Pixel Technology" which "merges" four pixels into one, which then helps reduce noise and brighten the captured photo. OnePlus default calibration is excellent, balancing saturated colors with accuracy, but you can tweak it towards something more to your liking in display settings. It has the same camera-hardware specifications as in OnePlus 5. It's still got top-of-the-line specs with a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB/8GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage, Dash Charge fast-charging, and 16MP selfie camera. Flaunting a unibody aluminum body, its construction is undoubtedly solid and feels significantly more durable than its glass meets metal contemporaries.
OnePlus 5T now looks like a good upgrade on the OnePlus 5 and the changes are not cosmetic or superficial. The late-night launch was followed by a quick hands-on experience on the new OnePlus 5T.

Either Mourinho is particularly sensitive, which seems entirely possible but a bit premature, or he simply wants something. Chelsea will need to try to make a good start and I like the 13/2 available on Eden Hazard to open the scoring.
