After a string of leaks and rumours, OnePlus has finally unveiled its much-awaited OnePlus 5 smartphone. The new flagship phone comes in two variants - Slate Gray (64GB) and Midnight Black (128GB). The phone is priced at $479 onwards.
The phone will be launched in India at an event in Mumbai on June 22. The company will announce the price for the Indian market on Thursday.
The OnePlus 5 is claimed to feature the highest resolution dual camera on the planet. It includes a 16 megapixel dual camera with dual LED flash at the back, and a 16 megapixel front camera.
According to the company, its “dual-camera technology lets you focus on your subject, progressively blurring the background for a gentle, yet powerful effect.” Also, focusing on the OnePlus 5 is 40 per cent faster than the OnePlus 3T.
At 7.25 mm, the OnePlus 5 is the thinnest OnePlus flagship, yet its battery has been improved by 20 per cent over the last-generation OnePlus 3T.
Running OxygenOS, which is built on Android Nougat, the OnePlus 5 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset.
Other features of the phone include a 5.5-inch full HD display, 3300 mAh battery with the company’s proprietary Dash Charging, Adreno 540 GPU, dual nano-SIM slot and a bottom-facing speaker.
