A vertical dual camera setup on the OnePlus 5 seems to be the feature that’s creating the most buzz. OnePlus till now have stuck to the single lens design but the recent surge of dual cameras on smartphones may have prompted a rethink. There is no clarity on the exact pixel count of the camera yet or what features the dual camera will offer.

The Almighty & Powerful OnePlus

Judging by the leaked specs, it looks like OnePlus is ready to throw down the gauntlet this time against bigger players like the Galaxy S8 & LG G6. The phone could come with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and 6 GB RAM which is higher than the 4 GB RAM of the S8 & S8+.

Software-wise, OnePlus is rumoured to launch an updated version of Oxygen OS on the OnePlus 5 on top of Android Nougat. So expect the new OnePlus device to be a snappy beast.

A 4,000 mAh Battery Pack on the Plus 5

The last two iterations from OnePlus, the OnePlus 3 & 3T have been stellar performers in the battery department and the Plus 5 could follow suit with a 4,000 mAh battery on the Plus 5. Quick Charge 4.0 is something that the company are thinking of incorporating as well.


The OnePlus 5 is set to hit the market most probably in a month’s time. What will be more interesting to see is whether any of the rumoured specs land up on the official specs sheet of OnePlus 5. We’ll keep you updated on the launch and first look of the OnePlus 5 as soon as it’s officially released.
