OnePlus 5 will give tough competition to Samsung Galaxy S8
As reported earlier, OnePlus is expected to jump from the OnePlus 3T name to OnePlus 5 for the 2017 flagship, skipping the "four" moniker as it is considered unlucky in China.

While an earlier leak gave us a glimpse at what we can expect from the smartphone, a new report sheds further light on it - and hints at a handset ready to take on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.

The OnePlus 5 is supposedly going to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip inside, along with as much as 8GB of RAM. That might sound shocking at first, but the OnePlus 3 did ship with 6GB of RAM last year, so making the jump to the next threshold seems only logical.

The handset should also feature a 5.5-inch display with 2K resolution, 3,000 mAh battery, and a 23-megapixel dual lens rear camera with optical image stabilization and optical zoom. The report goes on to say the phone will be just 7mm thick.

The OnePlus 5 will supposedly have an all-screen design with small bezels. Just like the Galaxy S8, the OnePlus 5 will not have a physical home button, and the fingerprint sensor will be relocated to the back of the phone. But OnePlus should place it in a more central position than Samsung.

Previous reports indicate that the OnePlus 5 will sport a dual-edge screen and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. The Chinese company is also widely expected to bump the storage on the next flagship to 256GB. Another detail says that the OnePlus 5 may come with a ceramic body mimicking the Xiaomi Mi MIX.

The OnePlus 5 is expected to arrive in the second half of 2017, and pricing details are unknown at the moment - though the company would look to continue its trend of offering top-end specs at mid-range prices.

It’s unclear exactly when the OnePlus 5 will launch or how much will cost. But given OnePlus’ history, we’d expect a summer release for the handset and an affordable price tag as well.
