The leak of the latest flagship by OnePlus is doing rounds and we had to tell you about its feature. The phone was previously going to be named OnePlus 4. However, 4 is considered a bad omen for the Chinese, and they decided to change the name to OnePlus 5.
It is commendable that a small Chinese startup has now shaped up to rival Galaxy S8 and is half the price of iPhone7. On the contrary, people are widely accepting the brand for cutting-edge technology and quality.
You might say that LG G6 is also a tough competition, but it has no advantages compared to Galaxy S8 and S8+, which again is a tough competition to OnePlus 5. Apart from the brand value, marketing budget and user-friendliness by loyal customers, it is tough to contend people with the S8 series.
There had been some leaks about the features of OnePlus 5, but some of them were wrongly written. According to the latest update, the mobile is more impressive that what you might have expected.
Features of OnePlus 5:
- 5.5-inch QHD+ Full Vision display
- 6GB RAM
- Snapdragon 835 Processor
- 13MP Dual-Lens Rear Camera
- 3,600 mAh battery
- Android 7.1.1 Nougat
- 12-megapixel camera resolution for the back
- 8-megapixel sensor for the front
- Dual-camera setup (standard RGB + monochrome)
- Supports Dash Charge 2.0 for quick charging
- Fingerprint scanning support
There was a recent screenshot posted online that showed that its specs include 128GB of storage with 8GB RAM instead of 6GB RAM. However, this leak is unconfirmed and we need to wait for the manufacturers to comment.
Apart from its display resolution OnePlus 5 looks similar to Galaxy S8. The gadget is sleek and in all-metal and glass. The price according to OppoMart listing states that OnePlus 5 would cost around £345. This is slightly more expensive that OnePlus 3T, that is priced at £338. However, the price is significantly above OnePlus 3, which costs around £307.
The price of iPhone7 is £719 and that means OnePlus 5 is half of that with higher features. The prices of S8 and S8+ are around £693 and £777, and these too are almost double the cost.
We guess it is better to choose something that would be tech-savvy than a product that gives you brand value. User-friendliness is a completely different aspect, but you’d never know if you can get comfortable with something until you use it!
