Current OnePlus flagship, the 3T is a great phone will good performance, decent camera and a long-lasting battery that costs far less than similarly specced Android flagship. Now that some leaks about the upcoming successor are out, it looks like OnePlus will want to do the same with OnePlus 5 too. Let’s discuss everything we know about the phone in this post.

Release Date

Although OnePlus is not a company that releases phones annually, it seems that the OnePlus 5 will be coming sometime the summer of 2017 as the company confirmed to The Verge. We expect the phone to come out on the end of June or at the beginning of July. One great thing about phone maker is that customers won’t have to wait too long to buy them as usually OnePlus’ public availability is far closer to release date compared to iPhones or Android flagships.

OnePlus 5 Specifications

OnePlus 3, 3T and even OnePlus 2 have packed a serious punch for the price including a decent sized battery, fastest available mobile processors and more than enough RAM to make sure than phones perform on par with other big names such as Galaxy S7 or HTC One 10.

As per some recent leaks, we can be sure that the OnePlus 5 won’t disappoint. The phone will come with a 5.5 inch AMOLED display that will have either a Full HD or a QHD resolution, the latter might result in a vastly improved mobile VR experience. Some reports also state that the screen may be slightly curved similar to Galaxy S8 and the Mi 6.

As per a post on Chinese social network Weibo, the phone will come with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, however, we may also see another version of the phone which will pack 8 GB RAM with 256 GB internal non-expandible storage.

The post also said that phone will come with a fingerprint sensor in front and a slightly larger 3600 mAh battery which will support Dash Charging technology.
