OnePlus 5 Will Be Powered By The Best Qualcomm Chipset, CEO Confirms
OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau has already confirmed that OnePlus 5, the company's upcoming flagship, will have a front-facing fingerprint sensor. Aside from that, it was already verified that it will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. Meaning, OnePlus 5 is ready to take on Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
OnePlus 5 To Have Fingerprint Sensor
All the information about the upcoming OnePlus smartphone flagship may have also revealed some details on what it might look like, according to the International Business Insider. A OnePlus fan asked the CEO via Chinese social network. whether the next smartphone will feature a front-facing fingerprint sensor or not. Lau simply replied the word “yes” and that suggests, indeed, the upcoming smartphone’s design will have a front-facing fingerprint sensor.
In the past few years, fingerprint sensors have become ubiquitous when it comes to high-end smartphones. While some devices such as Apple iPhone 7 or HTC U11 feature front fingerprint scanners, there are some phones that have their sensors on the back. These brave risking companies are Samsung for its Galaxy S8, Google for its Pixel phone and LG for the G6 smartphone.
Past smartphones made by OnePlus are widely known to have its fingerprint scanners on the front part of the device. And many fans are expecting that it won't change with the OnePlus 5. Aside from that, since Lau recently confirmed that the upcoming device would keep its fingerprint scanner on the front, we can just rely on it. Therefore, OnePlus 5 will look like the OnePlus 3T and its other predecessors.
