OnePlus 5 Revealed In TV Ad, Flagship Killer Reaches 300,000 Online Registrations
The highly awaited OnePlus 5 made a surprise appearance via a TV ad. However, the said ad was only shown in India during the match against Indian and Pakistan for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
Cricket is arguably the most popular sport in India as well as in Pakistan which makes the TV ad a strategic move by OnePlus. The game in question is the third most watched game in the sport's history and its estimated 324 million viewers got a good view of the OnePlus 5 thanks to the teaser ad. And just to be sure, OnePlus hired Indian superstar Amitabh Bachchan to star in the OnePlus 5 commercial. For those unfamiliar with Bachchan, the iconic Indian actor appeared in "The Great Gasby" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. As XDA-Developers pointed out, the render of the OnePlus 5 shown in the TV ad confirms previously leaked photos of the handset.
At this stage, everything seems to be pointing at a successful OnePlus 5 launch. In fact, more than 300,000 registrations for the OnePlus 5 were placed on JD.com in a span of two days. That number only accounts for those made through the said Chinese retailer's web site. This does not take into account those who will purchase the OnePlus 5 by other means including through the official OnePlus website.
The OnePlus 5 will be one of the most impressive smartphones to come this year and that's a huge statement considering the Samsung Galaxy S8 is already available while the highly anticipated iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8 are on the horizon. The OnePlus 5 will be powered by Snapdragon 835 processor and will come with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. It will also have a dual camera setup with one rumored to be exclusively a monochrome sensor.
According to GSMArena, the OnePlus 5 will officially be unveiled on June 20. The event will be live streamed and can be seen around the world. On June 21, another event will take place in China. A day after that, another OnePlus 5 event will be held in India where the TV ad was interestingly shown.

The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
