The new flagship of Chinese manufacturer OnePlus will succeed the OnePlus 3 and 3T, released respectively in June and November 2016. OnePlus would have consciously chosen to pass the number “4” because this figure would bring misfortune in China, its domestic market.
Its launch is expected next June, according to a technical sheet published on the resources, so the mobile terminal was not officially unveiled by the Chinese firm.
OnePlus would also invoke the number 5 flocked on the jersey of former American basketball player Robert Horry (when he was playing in the San Antonio Spurs) whose members of OnePlus would be fans.
The OnePlus 5 will be the next manufacturer’s flagship, which means it will compete with the best Android mobile devices on the market.
For this purpose, on the display side, it would be equipped with an AMOLED screen of 5.5 inches displaying a definition QHD (2560 by 1440 pixels).
The device will draw its power from the SoC (System on Chip) Snapdragon 835 that is already found on some Samsung Galaxy S8 and also equips the Xiaomi Mi 6.
Engraved in 10nm (nanometers), the chip houses the Adreno 540 graphics solution and a 8-core processor running at up to 2.45 GHz. The whole is supported by no less than 6 GB of LPDDR4, while the storage goes through 64 GB or 128 GB of internal flash memory, depending on the version.
For the photo panel, there is a dual back camera (with a 12 megapixel sensor) to match the Huawei P6, LG G6 or other iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a camera with 8 megapixel sensor on the front.
The two cameras are aligned vertically and not horizontally. The battery life revised with a battery of 3580 mAh (against 3400 mAh for OnePlus 3) backed by the technology of fast charging Dash Charge 2.0.
