OnePlus says the 5T is the fastest phone ever
OnePlus today announced a new flagship smartphone - theOnePlus 5T. Presented with the tagline "A New View," the 5T sports a6-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, and, thanks to its thin bezels, itspredecessor - OnePlus 5 - now looks outdated.
Refreshed design aside, the OnePlus 5T isn't much differentfrom the OnePlus 5, packing the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB, or 8 GB of RAM (depending on model). Still, OnePlus boldly claims thatthe 5T is the fastest phone ever made - thanks to a combination of the powerfulhardware mentioned above and software improvements included in OxygenOS (basedon Android 7.1 Nougat).
Here's what OnePlus, via its official Twitter account, says:
Note that the company doesn't say "no other Androidsmartphone," but simply no other smartphone - which obviously meansOnePlus believes the 5T is faster than Apple's latest handsets - iPhone X,iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. Of course, for now, we can't say if that's true ornot. We will have to thoroughly test the new phone and see how close to thetruth OnePlus' claim is.
