The much-anticipated flagship phone now has a launch date. Yes, we’re speaking about the OnePlus 5 itself, which will be officially on June 20, a little two weeks away from now. The device will be announced in various countries in pop-up events. OnePlus, on its official Twitter handle has confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will land in India on June 22 at an event in Mumbai.
Just after the official date came out, a render of the device have appeared online, and it may be the final design of the OnePlus 5. Folks at Android Police have acquired the image from a second accurate source, who is confident that it will be the final design of the phone. Let’s take a look at what the render and other leaks say about the OnePlus 5.
An iPhone-Esque design?
Going by the render released yesterday, the OnePlus 5 will equip a dual camera at the back, and the design resembles the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, the smartphone looks a lot more like the Oppo R11, which went official yesterday. The dual cameras are placed at the top rear right of the phone, followed by a dual-tone LED flash. The render also shows the alert slider and volume rockers, which are positioned to the left side of the phone.
Having said that, we’re believing this render as an accurate one because the wallpaper used on the phone is one among the official OnePlus 5 wallpapers leaked a couple of days ago. From the front, the phone has the same OnePlus 3/3T design.
Now that the dual cameras are almost confirmed with the OnePlus 5, the implementation is still a mystery. A few days ago, some camera samples of the phone had leaked online, which suggested a monochrome sensor and a standard sensor. However, a Weibo user claimed that the phone will match the Samsung Galaxy S8 in terms of performance and will come with a 2x telephoto lens as the iPhone 7 Plus. All said nothing is confirmed for now from OnePlus. But one thing’s for sure; the OnePlus 5 will have a camera in-line with other flagship phones.
Well, this is a very much expected thing with OnePlus smartphones. The company will pack high-end hardware with all of its phones. Both Qualcomm and OnePlus have confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, paired with either 6GB/8GB of RAM. The phone will come in different storage options- 64GB, 128GB, and may be in 256GB option as well.
OnePlus already teased the OnePlus 5 to come in different colour choices, and one among the list is a purple colour. The OnePlus 5 encased with purple colour have surfaced online, and it looks extremely gorgeous. Other colour options are Red, Black, and Gold. I would love to see the OnePlus 5 in red colour.
