OnePlus 5 will be officially unveiled tomorrow and will land in India on Thursday. Before the launch itself, the phone has leaked in all its glory. In a promotional TV ad between the India and Pakistan Champions Trophy final match, the device’s design was fully revealed. On par with earlier sayings, the OnePlus 5 will look like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, especially, the dual rear camera setup is something users will hate.
One thing which hasn’t leaked about the phone until now is the battery capacity. But a presentation slide leak leaked today claims that the phone will come with a 3300mAh battery. This will be nearly five percent less battery capacity seen on the OnePlus 3T, which uses a 3400mAh battery. The OnePlus 5 will also come with support Dash Charge technology.
The speciality of OnePlus Dash Charge technology is that the device doesn’t get warm even while charging at a rapid pace. The OnePlus 3 and 3T used the first generation Dash Charge technology, whereas the OnePlus 5 expected to come with Dash Charge 2.0 technology.
Besides the battery, the smartphone’s price is leaked as well (yet again). The OnePlus 5 will be priced at Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage option, while the premium 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage option will cost Rs. 37,999. This comes in line with earlier leaked pricing as well.
Other leaked specifications of the device are a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 835 chip with Adreno 540 GPU, dual rear cameras- a standard RGB sensor and a larger monochrome sensor, 16MP front-facing camera, Android 7.1.1 Nougat based Oxygen OS. The company has been teasing new Oxygen OS features such as theme engine, new customizations, etc.
Immediately after the Indian launch on June 22, OnePlus will be conducting pop-up events in the country across four states- Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad from June 22 to June 25. The phone is expected to come in four colour options- black, gold, red, and purple.
