How to make an already excellent flagship even better? Before this mammoth task stands OnePlus. For the new OnePlus 5, the smartphone startup apparently has mainly made the larger battery and the camera, as reports from China now suggest.
Lastly, HTC announced the launch of its new top-of-the-line smartphone, but only one is missing: OnePlus. Due to the fact that the number 4 in many parts of Asia is regarded as an accident, it is generally expected that the Chinese company of the OnePlus 3T will jump directly onto the OnePlus 5 as far as naming is concerned.
A concrete date for the presentation of the next “flagship killer” still exists, but more and more information about the alleged equipment of the OnePlus 5 emerged in the past weeks, and rumors about the battery and the camera are now coming to us.
According to the successor of the OnePlus 3T a dual camera on board, which is in contrast to other smartphones with the double lens, but vertically instead of horizontally arranged. Kumamoto Technology reports on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo and confirms previous information, which also spoke of a dual camera.
OnePlus 5: 25 percent shorter charging time
In addition, the new OnePlus 5 will have a slightly larger battery with a capacity of 3,600 mAh on board. For comparison, the OnePlus 3T has an energy cell with 3,400 mAh. With the already fast-paced rapid charging technology Dash Charge, the OnePlus 5 is to exceed the predecessor significantly again and have a 25% shorter charging time.
According to Kumamoto Technology, the RAM should remain with the 6 GB RAM, with which also both predecessors could. The internal memory is to be standard but at 128 GB instead of 64 GB. A special edition with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB can not exclude the source. About the installed SoC there is no secure information, but generally, the Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm is expected.
OnePlus 5: With jack socket or without?
Finally, a small detail that should be of great importance for many users: the 3.5 mm jack connector. Whether the OnePlus 5 has a jack socket or the iPhone 7 follows and waived, Kumamoto Technology is not yet known.
If the information so far is true, the OnePlus 5 is probably again a high-end smartphone in the house, which also does not have to shy away from the comparison with significantly more expensive flagships like the Galaxy S8 or LG G6.
