When a large number of Indian eyes were glued on television watching India vs Pakistan ICC Champion Trophy final match yesterday, OnePlus chose the medium to tease the launch of the much-awaited OnePlus 5 smartphone in the country.
Just ahead of the launch, OnePlus has also launched a video listing out all the services that potential OnePlus 5 buyers can look forward to. Still, we are looking forward to the formal event happening on 12 p.m. EDT in the U.S. There might be more features that OnePlus is yet to reveal that can prove its moniker as the flagship killer.
As per a Weibo forum post, the OnePlus 5 will be sold in 2 variants.
OnePlus has been busy past few weeks creating a global hype about the launch of the OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 5 plans to take it up a notch and will introduce some massive changes.
The live streaming can also be watched online in the OnePlus official website as well. I look forward to that - the specs make this phone very interesting, throw on a factory-made official custom ROM (OxygenOS) and you could have a great user experience.
OnePlus 5 will be officially unveiled tomorrow and will land in India on Thursday.
The leak further alleges that the OnePlus 5 will go up for sale at 4:30 pm on June 22 via Amazon India. It is the same processor to be used in all 2017 flagship devices. BGR reported that the first image, courtesy of a tweet by Harsh Pittroda, consists of four OnePlus 5 cases and a box of what is likely that of the smartphone itself.
The OnePlus 5 will ship with the latest version of the company's OxygenOS Android skin.
Just like the previous OnePlus devices, the OnePlus 5 will also not be featuring water and dust resistance capabilities. OnePlus has always stuck to the mid-range category and is praised for offering flagship performance at an affordable price. Around a week ago, the source code of a landing page of OnePlus 5 revealed that the smartphone would be available in 8 GB RAM variant in India. Amazon will be the official retailer and the e-commerce giant has already started promotional events for the mega-launch.
What are the OnePlus 5 features and specifications? It will sport a 5.5-inch optic AMOLED full HD display that will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The 8GB of RAM 128GB storage model might be listed at Rs. 37,999.
