OnePlus 5 is now official, the OnePlus’s 2017 flagship phone has been unveiled, complete with the same raw power that you’d expect, but with an enhanced photography experience this time around. Many though the dual camera system has been copied from the iPhone 7 Plus. And some of the aesthetics from Samsung Galaxy S7 and of course the latest Galaxy S8/S8+. To admit that, we have to look at the full specifications sheet right below.
Companies like Samsung, Apple, HTC, and OnePlus simply cannot get a product to market in the modern age without it leaking onto the Internet in on way or another prior to the official announcement. Likewise, we’ve been seeing preview pertaining to the OnePlus 5 over recent months, also we now know the the design leaks were accurate, with the company introducing a new device which bears a striking resemblance to Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus in many points.
Shame! The company behind the new hardware hasn’t been shy of pulling any punches when it comes to picking in a comprehensive and impressive technical specs department. The OnePlus 5 features latest Snapdragon 835 series processor of Qualcomm, complete with an 8GB of RAM built inside – yes you read it right, 8GB! – and the internal storage capacity of up to 128GB is huge. So buyers will also be getting their hands on a OnePlus 5 device with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage, too.
There is no option to expand the built-in [hone storage with an accompanying microSD card slot or any other external storage, but again, OnePlus is telling us that the storage capacity utilizes a 2-Lane technology meant specifically to increase read / write speed. As for display, OnePlus 5 info reveals that it has stuck to the standard 1080p Full HD AMOLED display, coming in at 5.5-inches.
Now, the biggest changes made with regards to the OnePlus 5 camera experience is of a dual-lens camera setup for the first time on its phone. The 16 and 20-megapixel lenses will more than pack a punch, with the f/1.7 aperture along with the iPhone 7 Plus-like “Portrait Mode” offering Bokeh shots. However, should wait for a more hands-on experience before making any judgements.
Not so big, rather the smartphone is been accompanied by an internal 3300mAh battery, promising to offer up to 20% more battery life than the previous OnePlus 3 model.
When it comes to pre-installed apps and operating system, the OnePlus 5 runs with custom ROM based on Android 7.1.1 which looks stunning on the super-bright Super AMOLED display. Running its proprietary OxygenOS, the system includes a number of new improvements designed to refine the overall premium hardware and software experience For instance, the device features a new software-powered reading mode that adjusts the colors and brightness of the display, which is very much similar to Night Shift with iOS.
OnePlus has also made some refreshments to how data through the device is handled to try and ensure that it offers a smoother and fluid experience even when significant device resource is being consumed.
