OnePlus 5 the most leaked Android handset probably of all times, is finally official. OnePlus unveiled its latest and most expensive flagship handset the OnePlus 5 globally just about an hour ago via a live event streaming on YouTube and Facebook. Though a recent story and a video by The Verge had most of the details already out, but here it is.
We have already shared a few posts on our social channels about the design and in fact reported about the same earlier. Yes, it is remarkably similar to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the OPPO R11 with the same rear camera cut out. The handset is slim with 7.25mm thickness and I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be light in weight as well going by how light OnePlus 3T is. It comes with a 3300 mAh battery with Dash charge. It comes with a 10nm thin Snapdragon 835 SoC with 8GB and 6GB RAM variants accordingly accompanied with 128 and 64GB on-board storage.
There is a dual rear camera setup with works to offer portrait mode (shallow Depth of Field) and 2X optical zoom. Oh, and it has the 3.5mm audio output jack. Here is a list of specifications below.
