If you’re not all too familiar with handsets like the OnePlus 3T, suffice it to say that it’s cheaper than most. Yet, as far as specifications are concerned it took on last year’s flagships and came out with high honors. However, if there’s one thing that can be said about the Chinese manufacturer behind this line of devices, it’s that it never rests on its laurels. No, it is always looking to compete, and as far as it can challenge the likes of Apple, Samsung, and LG.

What To Expect

So, as you can imagine, that beyond the OnePlus 5 price rumors, it will be another handset that takes on the industry leaders. However, about specs, nothing as of yet is confirmed, but rumors suggest the following.

It’s expected that a top of the line chipset, that can only be the Snapdragon 835 with a clock speed of 2.3Ghz will be included. Additionally, there’s a dual-camera which the company worked on with DxO, it will be horizontally aligned.

As far as the display is concerned, leaks coming via Amazon India, have provided details. These indicate that a 5.5-inch full-HD display will be featured on the device, which could be disappointing if true. Previous rumors have suggested a QHD display was likely, with a range of DCI-P3 colors, which provide superior color accuracy.

Lastly, it’s thought there will be two variations, one with 64GB of internal storage coupled with 6GB of RAM. And a larger 128GB variant with 8GB of RAM.
