A 23-megapixel shooter will be placed on the back of the device, and according to this info, the OnePlus 5 will not sport a dual camera setup on its back.
If all of that information turns out to be right, then we're looking at a very, very capable handset, on paper at least. SlashLeaks also posted photos of the OnePlus 5 with the same set-up, leading fans to be conflicted on which to believe. Geekbuying also lists the OnePlus 5 at an incredible price of $450, although that is said to be a limited sale price, with the full retail cost being $622. If the Geekbuying listing is anything to go by, the OnePlus 5 should be made more formidable with its purported 8 GB of random-access memory (RAM) and 64 GB of internal storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has several things going for it that the OnePlus 5 will not surpass, including the Infinity Display, Iris scanner, and the Bixby digital assistant.
While the information about the smartphone has not yet been confirmed by OnePlus, the OnePlus 5 looks like it is shaping up to be a legitimate competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S8. It will be interested to observe how the consumers react to the different launches - chiefly to the OnePlus 5 smartphone and the speculated Microsoft Surface Phone. As for the rumored battery size of 4000 mAh, it is also known that OnePlus always gives ample consideration to users' wishes, so it would be very much in the company's character and precedent to create a thicker device that houses a juicier or heavier battery, to please customers.
But when it comes to specs and price, it will be hard to beat the OnePlus 5, which might be able to entice more consumers because of its affordability. The design of the phone is more or less same as the OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 with minor changes here and there. Out of all these specs, the price is Samsung's real reason to worry. There is no doubt that more consumers will consider the OnePlus 5 over the Galaxy S8 if they think that they can get the same performance for half the price.
It is unclear when OnePlus will officially unveil the OnePlus 5, but signs are pointing that the announcement is coming soon.
