The glimpses of the phone we’ve received are impressive and OnePlus fans are waiting to get their hands on the next OnePlus device that will revamp mobile computing.
Here’s all you need to know about the OnePlus 5 launch, release date, specifications, and features.
OnePlus seems to be retracing its steps with the launch of the OnePlus 5. They will be bringing back the invites system that they had shelved for the launch of OnePlus 3 and 3T.
The specifications and the features of the phone are designed to impress and the speculative features of this super phone are doing just that. Its high speed, fast processor, Android Nougat OS, Home button integrated fingerprint sensor, vast storage option and large battery capacity give the phone what it needs to take on computers head on and beat it at its own game.
Now let’s dive deep into its specifications:
The OnePlus 5 will be housing a Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 Octa-core processor that will be functioning at a frequency of 4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo alongside an Adreno 540 GPU for enhanced visuals on high graphic content. The Android Nougat is the icing on the cake, for, that enables its users to seamlessly switch between apps and use the multi-tab option to its best.
The phone will be presented in two variants. One of them would be featuring 6GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and the latter would be housing an 8GB RAM unit with 128GB internal memory.
The presence of a dependable storage slot has not been confirmed yet, however, there are strong reasons to believe that the OnePlus 5 would not be featuring expandable storage at least in this variant. After paying a heavy price for the phone, we are unsure of how users would react to the same old 64GB storage that was present from the beginning of Oneplus in India.
OnePlus will be featuring a dual rear camera and this seems like one of the most powerful ones in the smartphone race so far. On the rear, it has 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 few of the features the camera boasts of.
The selfie camera on this one is a powerful 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture which has embedded Auto HDR, EIS (gyro), and records 1080p videos effortlessly.
The battery of the OnePlus 5 is a 3300 mAh unit which is aided by Dash Charge. The battery slightly seems underpowered in terms of numbers, but the Nano processor used is designed to consume less power thus delivering longer battery durations with smaller units.
This 5.5-inch phone will be featuring an Optic AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 401 ppi. This superstructure is protected from external damage by a unit of a Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The cons of this phone so far are that the phone is neither water resistant nor dustproof. The battery unit seems small and the memory seems inadequate. That said we’d have to wait for the release and watch the hidden magic unfold.
