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.
