OnePlus releases the latest flagship smartphones from the company last year which were named as the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T. Now, we have already known that the company releases its flagship smartphones with all the specifications but the price of the smartphone is in the mid-range series. Now, we have also known that the first smartphone from OnePlus which was named as OnePlus One came to be known as the flagship killer and the smartphone became really very popular which eventually was the reason behind company’s success and we are now seeing OnePlus launch its flagship killer smartphones from past 4 years.
Talking about the latest flagship killers from OnePlus, the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T, we have seen that both the smartphones were launched in six months time from each other where the OnePlus 5 was launched by the company in June and the company announced its next flagship smartphone, OnePlus 5T which was an upgraded version of the OnePlus 5 as claimed by the company. Also, we would like to mention that most of the design of the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T are similar. The major differences between the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T are that the latter of the two smartphones came with a Full View AMOLED display which is also known as a bezel-less display as seen on smartphones like the Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, LG G6, LG V30 and the others.
We have also seen that the users who bought the OnePlus 5 were interested in buying the OnePlus 5T even though both the smartphones had a nearly identical design due to the Full View 18:9 display that is present on the OnePlus 5T. Now, OnePlus recently announced a new application that has been developed by the company and this application has been released on the Google Play Store. The name of this application is OnePlus Switch app and this application, as the name suggests, is used for easily switching smartphones.
