The OnePlus 5 will hit the market early in the third quarter and is likely to be announced during IFA 2017 or at a previous Chinese company’s own event. So far, we have had a lot of important information leaked about it, the great news is the partnership with DxO Labs, which means that at last, we can have a Chinese flagship that stands out in new image.
Now, an new image of the alleged OnePlus 5 has been published on the Weibo social network, reaffirming the design already seen on some previous occasions. Unlike some leaked prototypes, the silver-colored device has its two rear cameras arranged vertically, with the two LEDs used for the flash positioned between them.
In addition, we do not have stripes for the antennas as prominent as they were widely publicized until then, their body made in a single piece of aluminum with the stripes probably positioned at the upper and lower ends. If this is confirmed, we will have something much more discreet and uniform, which should please those who did not identify with the previous leaks.
Like its predecessors, OnePlus 5 will bring the most powerful in terms of hardware, thus seeking to deal with flagships like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi 6. In case the company once again can deliver this for a price well below which is charged by its rivals, it is likely that once again we have a model worthy of the nickname of “killer of flagships” that OnePlus boasts since its first device.
In general, OnePlus 5 is expected to have:
- 5.5-inch screen with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels)
- Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 64-bit Octa-Core with maximum clock up to 2.45 GHz
- Adreno 540 as graphics card
- 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM
- 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB of space for internal storage
- Main camera with two 16 megapixel sensors
- Front camera also 16 megapixels
- 3,600 mAh battery
- Android 7.1.1 Nougat under the Oxygen interface as operating system
Unfortunately, European users interested in OnePlus 5 are very likely to need to start importing, since none of their predecessors was officially marketed on soil, and this is unlikely to happen in this generation.
