The Chinese company OnePlus has released the new OnePlus 5 smartphone, with both 6GB and 8 GB variants being available in China. The design and specifications of the new OnePlus 5 phone will be kept the same worldwide, while different softwares will be used for China and the rest of the world.
Features of the new OnePlus 5
The material used for the phone’s manufacturing is anodized aluminum and it is quite similar in appearance with the OnePlus 3 Smartphone. The handset has a front-facing fingerprint scanner and a dual camera setup. The company’s Logo is located on the back of the phone and it has a 5.5-inch HD Optic AMOLED display. The memory is quite satisfactory, with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage space. The processor is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core. As for the camera, it comes with a dual rear camera setup made up of a 16MP main camera with a f/1.7 aperture and a 20MP telephoto camera with a f/2.6 aperture. And on the front, there is a 16MP snapper for selfies. Besides that, the device is backed by a slightly smaller 3000 mAh battery when compared to 3400 mAh battery on its predecessor 3T.
