Hello, fellow mobile fanatics. If you’re a hunter, a lurker, someone who scours the internet for information related to the recent tech industry, then my friend, you have come to the right place. For those who are not so obsessed, stick around and you will get access to some useful information.
You can boast about it in front of your friends, or even find some useful materials for your blogs back at home. Without further ado, let us address the rumors that have been plaguing the internet for quite some time. OnePlus 5? Is it a myth or reality? Well, let’s find out.
The rumors that have been circulating the web suggests that the once not so famous OnePlus is in line to release yet another flagship, which guarantees to leaves the competition in the dust. If you’re living in India then you must me aware of Reliance Jio (unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months). The telecom service just toppled the total system of Indian telecom services. At a time when 4G in India was a big deal and only offered by one or two operators, Jio entered the market and took it by storm. Free 4G services seem too good to be true, but that is what has been happening for the last couple of months.
Our beloved OnePlus aims to do something similar. Though it is not for the generic people, nonetheless, it is sure to topple the flagship range of smartphones. OnePlus 3T was a huge success. But the company aims to take it even a step further. The OnePlus 5 rumored to launch somewhere along the middle of 2017. The device is a beat, to say the least, and aims to compete the upcoming Galaxy S8 lineup by Samsung. The exact release date is however not known, but it is said that it will come out during the end of May.
The main features include a whopping dual edge curved display, much alike the Samsung Galaxy S7. The device is also known to support a full metal body which also make phone very comfortable and handy. It is also a big rumor about OnePlus 5 that this phone will be water and dust resistant.
Display and Battery
Powered by a 4000 mAh battery and Android 7.0 (Nougat), the 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display is rumored to stay awake for almost two days. Also, the type C charger coupled with fast recharge technology will only take a few moments to revive the battery to its full potential.
Under the hood the OnePlus 5 packs a Snapdragon 835 64 bit processor, with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB onboard storage.
The company is also working to release another version which has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal storage, which of course can be expanded to 256 GB, via an SD card.
The hefty 16 Megapixel camera will be more than enough to quench the thirst for photography. And for those selfies, there is the 8 megapixel beast with retina flash.
When will the beast be available for sale?
Now that is a good question. As it stands, nobody knows when and where exactly the mobile will be released. All the above information are speculation mixed with some leaked information available online. Nonetheless, you people can relax knowing that there is some sort of development going on with the Oneplus 5. There is just no solid information that can support it. Based on previous release data, we can assume that the Oneplus 5 will jump the spotlight sometime during the H2 2017.
This event has been chosen because all the big shots will make their debut during this event. Samsung’s S8 and Galaxy Note 8, LG’s G6 and HTC’s HTC 11 will all be entering the market during this time, followed bt Apple’s iPhone 8. So in order to make a mark on the smartphone industry, OnePlus has to show up among its competition and outshine all of them, which they probably can.
Superstition? Really ?
You may not have known, but the Chinese believe that the number 4 holds a bad omen for them. This a very strong speculation that due to this reason, the upcoming star may skip OnePlus 4, and that this model is actually the rumored OnePlus 5. The owner of the company, BBK electronics, also produces another lien of smartphones known as Vivo. In the previous year, they released the Vivo V3 and V5, skipping the number 4 in between. So this speculation might have some ground to it after all.
But we do not have any concrete pieces of evidence to back it up. So, do not swerve from eh dreams of owning a OnePlus 4 someday. It may very well be released. The one thing that should matter is that no matter what the name, the next model is actually an upgrade from the previous installment. Rather than speculating on the name, we should be glad that we are getting, even more, a powerful device that is far better than the previous one.
The OnePlus was really the underdog of 2016. Out of nowhere, they saw a sudden spike in their sales and from that point on they managed to stay on track and met the expectation of the customers. They even managed to bring out a more modified OnePlus 3T. I get goosebumps while thinking of what they have stored for this year. The specs are more or less the same, if not more optimized and available in plenty.
It has superior horsepower when compared to lower level computers or laptops. Most entry level laptops come with only 4 GB RAM, and here we have a mobile device that has 6 GB of RAM! No one would have ever guessed that this day would finally come, but it finally has, though, in the form rumors, it seems a distinct possibility that the new of OnePlus 5 may very well come true in the near future. Embrace yourselves for a mobile met averse that will revolutionize the way the world works.
- A decent investment.
- Will contains all the next generation specifications.
- Stunning camera.
- There aren’t any downsides to this phone, at least not until it is officially launched.
