OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone maker, has taken the league of smartphones to an altogether different level. The OnePlus 5 holds one of the most powerful processor and camera in the segment. Apart from this, the smart connectivity features, big battery backup and high internal storage leaves nothing to complain about, even with the high price tag. OnePlus has always produced the flagship smartphone at a fraction of the price. OnePlus 3T with Qualcomm 821 chipset and 6GB of RAM for just $439 for the 64GB and $479 for 128GB storage option. New rumors claim that OnePlus 5 may be one of the best smartphones of 2017.
If the latest rumors are true, then the flagship killer smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display. Although the resolution is not specified, we would not be surprised if OnePlus decide to stick with a full-HD display. OnePlus 5 is expected to compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone Editions.
Other speculated features of the smartphone include a 23-megapixel rear camera. It is expected to have impressive camera performance and captured images thanks to its high-performance Snapdragon 830 (or possibly 835) processor. It will also have a 16-megapixel front camera similar to the one on the current OnePlus model. OnePlus 5 has been tipped to include IP68 water and dust resistance as well.
The Chinese company has decided to skip number 4 because it is considered to be an ill-fated number in China. OnePlus 5 looks very solid on paper and can certainly challenge big names such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
Although we do not know any information about pricing, we hope that One Plus 5 is similar to 3T last year. If OnePlus compets premium market, it may not work well.
