In regards as to what OS will the OnePlus 5 will be running, there is no information yet, but I'm gonna bet my money that it will definitely be running on Android Nougat, simply because the OnePlus 3T itself does have an Android Nougat update. No reason for OnePlus to backpedal to Android Marshmallow.

As for the Nokia P1, it will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat and will also be sporting a Snapdragon 835 chip. Aside from that, there is no other information.

The OnePlus 5 has varying reports regarding its internal memory storage, some sources claim that it will be 256 GB, while some say it is 126 GB. About its RAM capacity, it is said to be 4 GB of RAM. However, some rumors suggest that it could be 8 GB.

The OnePlus 5 is said to house a 4,000 mAh battery and will have a "dash charge" feature. For the Nokia P1, it will be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery and will have a quick charging feature.

The Verdict

Calling the OnePlus 5 as the "iPhone 7 killer" is an understatement. I think it should be rather called as the "killer for all flagship smartphones" simply because of the specs that this amazing smartphone is carrying and also its expected price range.

If these were really its specs and the price range it will be at, then I would personally choose the OnePlus 5 over any premium smartphone for 2017. With that being said, I personally think that the OnePlus 5 has the better rumored specs over the Nokia P1.
