OnePlus 5 Aims To Be An Android And iPhone Flagship Killer

OnePlus 5 Aims To Be An Android And iPhone Flagship Killer

In this article, we will examine the features and internal specifications of the newly launched phone in detail. The Snapdragon 835 also offers improvements through its new image signal processor, and the OnePlus 5 also comes with a 20-megapixels telephoto camera with an f/2.6 lens that works together with the main camera. If you are keen to avoid a repeat of this "mistake", you'd be better off sticking around for a few more months with your current OnePlus 3/3T - or whatever OnePlus model you are using - and wait for the eventual release of the OnePlus 5T.

OnePlus seems to be under the impression that people don't need/want a microSD card slot, so it did not include one into the OnePlus 5. However, like the 3T's upgrades over its immediate predecessor, the 5T will reportedly ship with a bigger battery capacity of about 4000mAh, a newer Snapdragon 836 SoC and a bunch of other yet-to-be-confirmed upgrades. OnePlus CEO Carl Pei has revealed on Twitter that the first numbers show that the OnePlus 5 is the fastest selling device ever for OnePlus. And there's the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The difference is at the back, but this is just because of the camera setup and positioning.

I've become used to the symmetrical design of previous OnePlus handsets, so this change of look is quite a wrench.

One final change is that OnePlus has changed the phone's vibration component so that it delivers a stronger, yet shorter buzz. While the OnePlus 3T is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with a quad-core CPU clocked at 2.35 GHz and an Adreno 530 GPU, the OnePlus 5 steps it up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.45 GHz and an Adreno 540 GPU.




OnePlus upgraded the specifications of the OnePlus 5 in nearly every way compared to the OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 5 sports a dual-camera set-up - 16MP and 20MP on the back.

Due to the slimmer profile of the new OnePlus 5, you get a smaller 3300mAh battery as opposed to the 3400mAh unit you find on the 3T. The screen OnePlus 3T represents the Optic AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 5.5 inches and very wide viewing angles, almost 180 degrees vertically and horizontally.

After months of endless rumors and reports, the OnePlus 5 was officially announced yesterday. But if you cannot afford to pay 499 euros for a smartphone (price of the 6 GB version of RAM / 64 GB of storage), let alone 559 euros (price of the 8 GB version of RAM / 128 GB of Storage), then we have an alternative to suggest you ...

OnePlus fans have been eagerly waiting for the next flagship killer. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
