The glimpses of the phone we got are impressive and OnePlus fans are waiting to get their hands on the next OnePlus device that will revolutionize mobile computing.
Here’s everything you need to know about the OnePlus 5 launch, release date, specs and features.
OnePlus seems to be retracing their steps with the launch of the OnePlus 5. They will be bringing back the invite system that they abandoned for the launch of the OnePlus 3 and 3T.
The specifications and features of the phone are designed to impress and the speculative features of this super phone do just that. Its high speed, fast processor, Android Nougat OS, integrated fingerprint sensor in Home button, huge storage option and large battery capacity give the phone what it needs to handle PCs and beat it in his own game.
Now let’s dive deep into its specifications:
The OnePlus 5 will feature an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 4×2.45 GHz Kryo and 4×1.9 GHz Kryo along with an Adreno 540 GPU for enhanced visuals in high graphics content. Android Nougat is the icing on the cake as it allows its users to seamlessly switch between apps and use the multi-tab option to its best advantage.
The phone will be presented in two variants. One of them will include 6GB of RAM with 64GB of internal memory, and the last one will have an 8GB RAM module with 128GB of internal memory.
The presence of a reliable storage slot is yet to be confirmed, but there are strong reasons to believe that the OnePlus 5 will not feature expandable storage, at least in this variant. After paying a hefty price for the phone, we’re not sure how users would react to the same old 64GB storage that was present since Oneplus launched in India.
OnePlus will feature a dual rear camera and this looks to be one of the most powerful in the smartphone race so far. At the back, there is a 20+16MP primary camera with dual LED flash. Phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, 1/2.8″ sensor size, 1.12 µm @ 16MP & 1/2.8″ sensor size, 1.0 µm @ 20MP, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama are just some of the features the camera boasts.
The selfie camera on this one is a powerful 16MP f/2.0 aperture camera that has built-in Auto HDR, EIS (gyroscope) and records 1080p videos effortlessly.
The OnePlus 5’s battery is 3300 mAh which is supported by Dash Charge. The battery seems slightly underpowered in terms of numbers, but the Nano processor used is designed to consume less power, thus providing longer battery life with smaller units.
This 5.5-inch phone will feature an optical AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 401 ppi. This upgrade is protected from external damage by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The cons of this phone so far are that the phone is neither waterproof nor dustproof. The battery seems small and the memory seems insufficient. That said, we’ll have to wait for the release and watch the hidden magic unfold.
