OnePlus 5 will be unveiled tomorrow and some markets will get it the day after, but others like India will have to wait until June 22 and later.
Up to now, we can say we know just about everything about this OnePlus 5 phone. Numerous leaks have been doing rounds and the company itself has already revealed to us what the phone will actually look like.
From the shared images, the upcoming OnePlus 5 will indeed be a beauty, but the design is somewhat generic and very similar to what we already see on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus or even the likes of Oppo R11 and ZTE Nubia Z17, albeit with some tweaks here and there. Even though these company teasers have not shed a light on the internals of the phone, leaked benchmarks and rumors have given us basically everything we need to know.
For starters, the new OnePlus 5 should keep the same display screen as its predecessor, the OnePlus 3T. In addition, the leaked images can confirm that the back of this phone will feature a dual-lens camera, but the exact details are still unclear. Under the hood, there will be a Snapdragon 835 processor running the show alongside 6GB RAM, but other sections claim that the phone will also get an 8GB RAM variant.
In terms of software, the OnePlus 5 will be powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and while the battery capacity has somehow been a mystery, two new leaks have just revealed two different battery capacities – a 3300mAh unit and a 4000mAh unit. The former is slightly smaller than the 3400mAh unit used on the 3T, something that is being attributed to the slimmer profile of the new OnePlus 5. On the contrary, it makes sense to have a 4000mAh unit on this phone – a phone that is an upgrade over the 3T.
The OnePlus 5 is also expected to appear in three color variants of Slate Grey, Soft Gold and Deep Black, with the latter variant exclusive to the 8GB/128GB variant.
Nothing is confirmed just yet, but we should get clearer details tomorrow when the phone finally comes to life. We’ll be here to update you on the exact details.
