In terms of OnePlus 5 display, the phone is expected to gear up a 5.5-inch Display, which is most probably similar to other OnePlus Smartphones. OnePlus Resolution will put a 1080p panel at the front of the OnePlus 5. A 5.5-inch Display with this size and resolution come out with an acceptable sharpness of 401ppi. Quad HD Display are very popular these days but it seems like OnePlus is not yet ready to part of this Race. Well, assumingingly the display will mostly of the AMOLED type, which assure excellent contrast and lowered power consumption in certain situations.


There is no second thought about it that the OnePlus definitely be powered by the Snapdragon 835 Silicon, which has recently given the best shot in making Galaxy S8 and S8+. The Snapdragon 835 is remarkably faster than Snapdragon 820 that made the rounds in the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The 2 top tier OnePlus devices are smart performers, not just because of the chipsets on deck but also the matter of fact that its very lightweight with stock-like OxygenOS on board. Previous OnePlus devices carry 6GB of RAM and according to that its logical to expect the same or even better. Some rumors Suggest that the OnePlus 5 will power 8GB of RAM. Apart from this Rumor we can surely say that OnePlus 5 will appear with at least 6GB amount of RAM.

The storage capacity of previously launched Phones OnePlus 3 and 3T had 64GB of ROM and had disabled the MicroSD slot from the design. Distinctive rumors about OnePlus 5 is around the corner that it will also end up with 64GB of storage in base version but will be joined by a 128-gig endeavor. Still there is no related information about microSD card yet. OnePlus phones are Dual Sim, it looks like a reasonable thing to repurpose one of the SIM slots to double as a microSD card slot.


As I already mentioned that Camera setup is supposed to be a highlighted feature of OnePlus 5. OnePlus is absolutely ready to challenge with its Dual Camera Bandwagon on its next Flagship. One of the rear Cameras is Projected to be a 23MP shooter and the secondary one to be 16MP snapper, just like the previous OnePlus 3T. It might throw a wide-angle or a telephoto snapper at the back or may use a monochrome secondary camera. If we talk as per the past experience on 3 and 3T version of Oneplus, the lightning-fast shutter speed impressed and accounted precious fans over it. The new killer flagship is most likely to end up being more sensitive to light and will capture greater detail in comparison to your normal regular RGB Camera. The pictures on the B&W Snapper will probably get combination with the color ones from the Regular RGB shooter next to it with the result being a sharper photo.

Expected Price of OnePlus 5

There is not exact information available for OnePlus 5 price but the expected cost is approximate to reach Rs. 30K-38K. There can be 2 assumptions over the price of OnePlus5, pricing around Rs. 32,999 and Rs. 37,999 for 64GB and 128GB respectively.  As we have already seen the specifications and performance of previously launched phone OnePlus 3T, without any doubt OnePlus 5 will surely be one step ahead. Users will probably be ready to pay this price as OnePlus brand has already made its place in the competitive field and has given a tough competition to well-known smartphones Like the iPhone 7, Google pixel, Samsung galaxy Edge, HTC 10 etc.
