OnePlus 5 rumours: Price, specifications, and everything else we know so far

The successor to OnePlus 3T dubbed OnePlus 5 is expected to launch this summer. The Chinese smartphone maker has already confirmed few details about the upcoming flagship device, like the inclusion of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, may be a new colour and the headphone jack.

In a tweet on Monday, the Chinese company posted a side-by-side image of a bridge, asking viewers to guess which photo was shot with the soon-to-be-released 2017 flagship killer.

The picture on the left is visibly dull and has much more noise in comparison to the one on the right. Considering that it’s a low-light situation, the image on the right has handled exposure, colour and contrast much better than the left camera sample.

Though OnePlus has not confirmed the dual camera set-up on its upcoming device,  and unless the company is trying to malign itself, we presume that the better quality second image is the one you should bet on.

There is no clarity on which smartphone is used to click the first image, so the comparison is quite vague. It could be the predecessor OnePlus 3T or any other Android device – one can only guess! Recent OnePlus 5 renders have revealed the design of the OnePlus 5 suggesting that the smartphone will sport a vertical dual camera setup, a patterned back, a metal frame, and a Home button in the front which will presumably house the fingerprint scanner.

The emphasis on camera before, even before the launch, indicates that OnePlus 5’s optics game will be stronger than usual. Apart from the camera, the sixth smartphone from OnePlus’ stable has been leaked in numerous reports; one of them even coming from the company’s CEO.

Last week, OnePlus CEO, Peter Lau confirmed that OnePlus 5 will come well equipped with the Snapdragon 835. Apart from this, earlier we reported that OnePlus 5 will come equipped with a 5.5-inch quad-HD display with 1440×2560 pixels resolution, 6GB of RAM and dual cameras at the back.

The processor should easily handle these specifications with grace and still have some juice to spare. Clocked at 2.45 GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is the most powerful mobile processor the company has to offer. The SoC comes with a 64-bit 10 nm architecture which makes it 35 percent smaller and 25 percent more power effective, Qualcomm claims at its website. It is made up of eight Kryo 280 CPU cores.

Qualcomm claims that the Snapdragon 835 SoC will allow peak download speeds of 1 Gigabit per second and peak upload speeds of 150 Mbps. With the processor, many incumbent pitfalls of the OnePlus brand, like touch latency could also be addressed.
