All About the Upcoming OnePlus 5: Latest Edition

OnePlus 5: Launching this Summer

After the huge success of the amazing OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T in 2016, OnePlus has announced yet another release of its amazing flagship this summer, which is just around the corner (in some countries). Named as the "OnePlus 5", the Chinese company has omitted the number "four" due to it being considered in China as a bad luck.

OnePlus 5

With quite a large amount of leaks and rumors about the phone, the hype is clearly building among us. To top it off, a blurry image presumably showing the OnePlus 5 has been leaked! Let's see what the latest "flagship killer" has to offer us now that its release date has been confirmed!

When is the OnePlus 5 Coming?

OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 5 is coming out on June 20 at 12.00 PM EDT. However its release date and time will vary at different countries around the world.

It is getting released on June 22 in India. So it is not quite much a wait for OnePlus lovers!

OnePlus 5 Design and Build

The OnePlus 5 is reported to have a dual horizontal camera and just like its predecessors, it is expected to have a very simplistic design with a metal body which is not likely to stand out from the crowd.

Other rumors suggest a glass and metal design but I find that quite unlikely. The fingerprint sensor is rumored to be situated at the front just like the OnePlus 3T, which causes loss of usable area below the screen, so a bezel-less design is not expected.

Anyway, you can expect with some surety that the OnePlus 5 will provide you with a greater range of colors for the phone!

OnePlus 5 Display

While not much is known about the display, rumors suggest a 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels (Full HD). Unlike its competitors, a 2K (QHD) screen is not feasible as it would obviously increase the prices a lot.

OnePlus 5 Camera

The upcoming OnePlus 5 flagship is rumored to bring a massive change to the camera department. the leaked images showing a dual rear camera setup,following the trend of the current flagships.

Actually it isn't much of a leaked image actually. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei posted it in his Instagram stories.
The phone may have a setup like the iPhone 7 Plus with a wide-angle and a telephoto lens or it could go for a monochrome and RGB lens.Additional rumors also suggest a 23 MP single rear camera.

As for the front camera, it is reported to be a 16 MP shooter.

OnePlus 5 Performance and Software

As a flagship, the OnePlus 5 would offer high-end specs, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and would go head to head with similarly specced flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. The phone is expected to come in two variants, an entry level model with 6GB RAM with 128 GB storage and a higher priced one with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

Coming to software, the OnePlus 5 would ship with the latest Android Nougat with a possible "OxygenOS 5" skin on top which adds a series of functional improvements such as "shelf" which offers quick access to recent contacts,and frequently used apps among other things without changing the look and feel of the stock android.

OnePlus 5 Battery

There are a lot of reports about the OnePlus 5 having a bigger 3600 mAh battery instead of 3440 mAh, which featured on the OnePlus 3T.
It would certainly support dash charge which currently is the fastest method of charging in mobile phones. With the OnePlus 5 we may however expect an improved and faster version of dash charge.

Wireless charging, however, is not expected as it would increase the price and OnePlus is committed to keep the phone price similar to a mid-range phone.

The Headphone Jack!

With Apple ditching the headphone jack on its iPhone 7 flagships, we are in the dark about its presence on the  OnePlus 5. However, it may be noted that Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlus had conducted a poll on Twitter regarding the topic a while ago and 88% of the people opted for a headphone jack.
So we may expect it to remain on OnePlus' upcoming flagship.

OnePlus 5 Price

OnePlus devices offer us a great bang for our buck for an amazing hardware and unmatched performance which is exactly why the devices are such a hit. The OnePlus One when launched cost around $299, the OnePlus Two cost $329, while the OnePlus 3 and 3T cost $399 and $439 respectively.

You can notice from the observations that Oneplus is slowly increasing its price with every single of its flagships. So, we can expect the price of the OnePlus 5 to cost around $500. Anyway, if the OnePlus 5 costs same as the OnePlus 3T, consumers are sure to welcome it wholeheartedly.
