Slowly, the rumors regarding OnePlus’s next flagship killer smartphone are picking up the pace. Until now, all the leaks were revealing the smartphone’s design. Also, an alleged image popped online recently claiming that the device would have a vertically placed dual camera at the back.
There are two new leaks coming from China today. One leak reveals the purported specifications of the phone, while the other comes in the form of a listing of e-commerce site Oppomart, which also reveals some of the specifications.
Firstly, the Oppomart’s listing claims that the phone will have a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. As expected, the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, paired with the same 6GB of RAM. The device will come with two storage options – 64GB and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage that delivers faster data transfer rates.
As seen on the previously leaked image, this listing also says that it will come with a dual camera at the back. Furthermore, the website claims that there will be a standard RGB sensor and a dedicated Monochrome sensor, similar to Huawei’s implementation. The OnePlus 5 will have a smaller 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
Furthermore, it says that there will be a fingerprint scanner on the phone and it boots Oxygen OS based on Android Nougat, which is very much expected. That said, the device will have Dash Charge 2.0, which was hinted in the other leak as well.
Secondly, an unknown user posted some key specifications of the OnePlus 5 in Chinese microblogging site, Weibo. The phone will be backed with a 3600mAh battery, and the Dash Charge 2.0 will charge the device completely 25 percent faster than the OnePlus 3T. Already, the OnePlus 3T is one of the fastest devices out there in terms of charging speeds. Things could get even better with the launch of OnePlus 5.
The Weibo post also says that there will be an 8GB variant of the phone, which may be called as OnePlus 5T.
Going by the Chinese firm’s launch history, the OnePlus 5 should be announced next month. Further, the Oppomart listing claims that the device will start shipping from June end. For now, the device is speculated to be priced at $449 (approx. Rs. 28,200).
