It looks like the OnePlus 5 is on its way sooner than we expect as details surrounding the upcoming smartphone started to leak out. In a recent report, there will be a black model, and the OnePlus 5 will feature a dual-camera at the rear. No fingerprint scanner is to be seen here, which means it must be placed at the front. Here are five top reasons why OnePlus 5 could be a true flagship killer.
The OnePlus 3T features the Snapdragon 821, but it's likely that the next OnePlus, the OnePlus 5, will come with the Snapdragon 835. This is the new processor unveiled by Qualcomm at CES 2017 and is thought to be the chip of choice for the 2017 flagship Galaxy S8.
Smoother And Faster Smartphone Experience
The Snapdragon 835 supports up to 8GB of RAM, and going by the fact OnePlus was one of the first to install 6GB of RAM. Most likely the upcoming flagship killer may be one of the first smartphones to pack an 8GB RAM.
Longer Battery Life
The Snapdragon 835 is the first Qualcomm processor to be made with a 10nm process, which will bring various improvements including performance and efficiency, Interestingly, a better battery life is expected of the OnePlus 5 as reports claim that it will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery with Dash Charge.
We've seen reports that OnePlus 5 will come with a dual camera set up and 21- to a 23Mp rear camera. The dual camera feature is a growing industry trend that we've already seen and particularly important because it will help OnePlus 5 match or beat phones like the iPhone 7 Plus, and now the Xiaomi Mi 6. However, there are no specific details of the image sensors inside the OnePlus 5 or what kind of lenses it will use, but rumors suggest that the front camera will be the same 16-megapixel shooter found in OnePlus 3T. The dual camera will also help OnePlus 5 users capture better low-light photos.
As Premium As The Other Major Smartphones But With A Lesser Price
OnePlus has historically offered its smartphones at competitive prices. Even though OnePlus 3T had a higher price tag than OnePlus 3, still, it was competitively priced compared to other flagship Android smartphones. The OnePlus 5 is expected to cost between $400 and $500 which will depend on storage options. The 128GB model's price would be close to $500.
