We all knew that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is going to name its next flagship phone as OnePlus 5 instead of OnePlus 4. Now it is also confirmed by the company. But the exact date of launch is not revealed by them, though we know it is going to happen in the coming months.
Regarding the display, OnePlus 5 will be getting a resolution upgrade from Oneplus 3T. It will be fitted with a 1440p display on a 5.5-inch screen size with a slim profile of about 7mm. The display type this time around will come with super AMOLED curved Display and will also have all metal body build.
With a model number – A5000, the device will come with 8GB of RAM. The specs which we are discussing here is almost similar to the specs leaked so far. We already knew that this phone is going to be equipped with the Qualcomm’s latest processor – Snapdragon 835 SoC. Further, the smartphone will be featuring a 23-megapixel camera on the rear panel, while there will be a 16-megapixel selfie snapper on the front. This shows that there will be no difference at least in terms of the front camera set-up when compared to the previously launched OnePlus 3T.
This being said, it can’t be denied that OnePlus 5 will have to fight a tough battle with other smartphones that have almost similar features. One such phone will be the recently-launched Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Also the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6, HTC U (better known as HTC Ocean) will compete with the OnePlus 5. Earlier speculations reveal that OnePlus 5 is planning to replace the patent aluminum body of the phone with a ceramic one.
Further, other rumors surfacing the web show that the upcoming the OnePlus 5 flagship device will house a 4000mAh battery coupled with Dash Charge fast charging support. The smartphone is also expected to come with a Type-C USB port and with wireless charging.
Speculations suggest that the OnePlus will unveil OnePlus 5 in Q2 of 2017. No pricing details are revealed as of yet, although chances are that it may be priced much higher than OnePlus 3T.
