Being unable to stream videos in HD from popular video apps is certainly not what consumers would expect from a device that features flagship level specs such as a 6-inch AMOLED display (with an aspect ratio of 18:9), the Snapdragon 835 chipset, and 6GB or 8GB of RAM. This issue has nothing to do with the specs of each model. Both devices certainly have the capability to provide users with streaming video in HD.
A OnePlus spokesman says that a future update will add the necessary Widevine Level 1 certification to the OnePlus 5T, which means that users will be able to enjoy watching the sequel to 13 Reasons Why in HD, assuming the update is disseminated in time. The company spokesman gave no information on when the update will be arriving. Nor did he explain why both models launched without support for Level 1 certification. If we hear anything from OnePlus, we will let you know.
