Every Oneplus smartphone from the OnePlus One has been a hit, and that’s in no small measure due to the fact that they are designed with the average smartphone user in mind. The OnePlus 3 in particular was very successful in the markets, and the company is planning to capitalize on that success with a new smartphone in the series, the Oneplus 5.
In recent times, leaks of the specifications and price of the OnePlus 5 have filtered out, and now, a listing of the smartphone on an Indian retail site reveals that the smartphone would go on sale at the middle of the year. We describe the specifications of the OnePlus 5 that are available right now below:
OnePlus 5 Rumoured Specifications
The OnePlus 5 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display with a Quad HD (2560 * 1440) pixel resolution. We haven’t seen any leaked photos showing the front design of the smartphone, but we have one that shows that the smartphone sports a dual camera setup at the rear.
Talking of cameras, the OnePlus 5 will sport an 8MP camera at the front and 12MP dual rear cameras at the back, one with RGB property and the other monochrome. It will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 835 processor with a 2.4GHz speed, and an Adreno 540 GPU.
In terms of storage, the OnePlus 5 will come in three variants, the first with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal storage, the second also with 6GB of RAM but with 128GB of internal storage, and the third, which is the flagship variant, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The 5 will pack a 3600mAh battery with Dash Charge 2.0 fast charging technology which charges the battery to 100% in just 30 minutes. The smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded in its physical home button which is present below the display at the front. It runs on Oxygen OS which is based on Android Nougat.

OnePlus 5 Price and Release Date
The OnePlus 5 has been spotted on Oppomart and is expected to cost $449 in the U.S., a little bit more expensive than the OnePlus 3T. I wonder how there will be a OnePlus 5 without a OnePlus 4, but perhaps that’s because of the existence of the OnePlus 3T.
