This year’s OnePlus 5 was a great option for anyone looking to spend around $500 on a new smartphone, but there was some room for improvement. That’s why OnePlus is launching a brand new flagship, the OnePlus 5T. We’ve got the official OnePlus 5T specs, and there are some notable improvements to discuss.

The most notable difference between the OnePlus 5T and the 5 are the displays. The 5T comes with a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, while the OnePlus 5 had a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a more traditional 16:9 aspect ratio.

Aside from that, both devices are basically the same under the hood. The 5T is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, and comes with 6 or 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (an upgrade from the 5’s LPDDR4 RAM), 64 or 128 GB of storage, and a 3,300 mAh battery.

It also comes with a 16 and 20 MP dual rear camera setup, a front-facing 16 MP shooter, and, yes, a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Also, with the shift to an 18:9 aspect ratio display, OnePlus moved the fingerprint sensor from the front to the back. Perhaps the only dark spot on the spec sheet is the absence of an IP rating.

See the chart below for the full list of OnePlus 5T specs:
