In the world of tech, a lot can happen in seven days. This week we look at the new One Plus 5T, Three’s Black Friday offers and Google Lens.
ONEPLUS 5T REVEALED
Nobody was expecting OnePlus to release a brand new phone so soon after releasing the flagship OnePlus 5 at the end of June, but they’ve managed to surprise us. The Chinese tech company has announced the OnePlus 5T, a great smartphone that can easily compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple.
The OnePlus 5T has a 6” AMOLED screen, 12.5% larger than the 5. It’ll be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and will run OxygenOS, OnePlus’s optimised version of Android Nougat. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the phone, and photos will look better than ever thanks to its 20MP and 16MP cameras. There will be two versions of the OnePlus 5T, one with 64GB storage and 6GB RAM, and another with 128GB storage and an impressive 8GB RAM.

GOOGLE LENS COMES TO PIXEL PHONES
Google announced Google Lens earlier this year, and it’s now being rolled out to Pixel phones, Mashable reports. Google Lens is a smart camera software that will analyse the world around you, by performing functions such as text recognition, barcode scanning and easily identifying books, films, art, and landmarks – and now Pixel users will be able to use this feature in real time.
Google Lens has the added benefit of making Google Assistant better – users need to simply point their camera at an object or landmark, and Assistant will now be able to recognise it easily.
