It's only been a few months since we were introduced to the OnePlus 5 and now we're already getting our hands on its successor. The turnaround has been fast and now Canadians (and presumably Americans and other global citizens too) can start getting their hands on the OnePlus 5T as the "buy now" page has just gone live on the OnePlus website.

As you may have heard, initial impressions have been positive with this supposed flagship killer. As you make your way down the spec sheet, you'll find that it shares much of its DNA with its non-T predecessor.

The biggest difference, terrible pun intended, is that you get a larger screen with the stretched out 18:9 aspect ratio (or 2:1, if you like math). The new "full optic AMOLED" screen measures 6.01-inches with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. That's not quite the quad HD we're seeing elsewhere, but your battery life should benefit as a result.

Other key highlights include the Snapdragon 835 processor and the new 20/16MP dual camera configuration on the back. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the back, offered in circular form just above the middle in a very similar fashion to the Google Pixel 2 and the LG V30.

We get to choose between two different configurations. The 64GB model with 6GB of RAM sells for $659 Canadian, whereas the 128GB model with 8GB of RAM sells for $729 Canadian. They are both only offered in Midnight Black. We had heard about the pricing for the 64GB model earlier, but they had not confirmed the higher model's pricing for Canada until now.


While MobileSyrup was told by a company spokesperson that the phone would ship immediately and arrive in three to five business days, the actual order page (as of this writing) is showing that the phone will ship "within 9 days." Interpret that how you will.
