The OnePlus 5 features a dual-camera system which works similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom. You have the main 16MP f/1.7 shooter that takes normal shots and a secondary 20MP f/2.6 camera with a telephoto lens.
Just one day after the OnePlus 5 was launched internationally, you can already place your pre-orders for this brand new flagship device here in Malaysia. It will cost you a pretty penny, though.
OK, so you might have heard that a certain Chinese smartphone company called OnePlus just unveiled their brand new flagship smartphone called the OnePlus 5. It’s got a monster spec sheet including geek-gasm inducing words like “Snapdragon 835”, “128GB of UFS2.1 storage” and “8GB of LPDDR4X RAM” which looks great in a brochure.
Unfortunately, by now, you might also have heard that this very company has been accused of cheating on synthetic benchmark tests by rigging their device to “maximise performance” during certain benchmarks. This obviously caused an uproar because this isn’t the first time OnePlus had been caught red handed.
But my question is: How much does this matter to you the end consumer?
The OnePlus 5 is finally official and it continues to offer top end specs at a lower price point. If you settle on not having the latest, you can now own last year’s OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T with a significant discount.
For those in the know, OnePlus is definitely the company you turn to when you want a high-end flagship smartphone minus the high-end flagship smartphone price tag. Because of this marriage of performance, near-stock Android experience and good value OnePlus has amassed somewhat of a cult following for smartphone fans like you and I. And we all look forward to days like these, days where OnePlus reveals their next big flagship smartphone.
This year, it’s called the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus has set out to give us the one thing we really wanted in one of their flagship smartphones: A stunning camera experience. The best part? It also comes with a whole lot more awesomeness.
OnePlus can make a mean flagship smartphone. It’s shown time and time again with its flagship OnePlus One, 2, plus the latest 3 and 3T. They’ve attracted somewhat of a cult following in the consumer space and have thrived in it.
But one of the things OnePlus fans have always felt their devices lack, myself included, is the a truly great camera. Well, with the upcoming OnePlus 5, it looks like they’re listening to us and are pouring a not insignificant amount of resources into making sure they nail this one aspect.
Two days ago, we came across images of the OnePlus 5 that suggested that the phone will look nearly identical to an iPhone 7 Plus. Today, we get confirmation of that and another seemingly legit bit of information: The OnePlus 5’s price.
The OnePlus 5 is going to be launching really soon and as usual, leaks have been springing up all over the internet. Today, though, we have what looks like a clear look at some official press renders for the upcoming flagship smartphone.
And yes, your eyes don’t deceive you, we’re all thinking it too. It looks exactly like an iPhone 7 Plus.
The OnePlus 5 is probably the next most anticipated flagship smartphone which should be launching pretty soon. Apart from running top rated hardware, the next flagship killer is said to be coming with dual cameras at the rear.
OnePlus, the smartphone brand that offers killer specs at competitive pricing is now going for a thinner approach. In his social posting on Weibo, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau has teased that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will be the thinnest flagship smartphone.
