Although the initial power players in the smartphone game were definitely Samsung and Apple, things are starting to change now while Asian companies take the center stage with their amazing smartphone launches that are also a bit more accessible as far as price goes than their luxury counterparts, the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S line. Chinese companies in particular have been pushing out quality products that are also more affordable, and we’re talking about companies such as Huawei and OnePlus.
About the OnePlus 5
The latter is actually preparing a huge launch as we speak, the launch of the OnePlus 5, which promises to rival the iPhone 8. The previous model in the OnePlus flagship line is the OnePlus 3 with its 3T variation, but as the number four is considered highly unlucky in Chinese culture, the company decided to skip on it for their phones and thus named the new device OnePlus 5. This little anecdote pleased many, but it’s not what makes the phone so great.
The OnePlus 5 comes with some pretty big specs. Needless to say, many rumors have formed around this launch, and many speculated about when the phone might hit the market. Well, now we know for sure.
Official Release Date
The company’s website has installed an official countdown to the launch date, which is now set as June 20, 2017 at 17:00 UK time. On top of that, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, tweeted this very same information on his official Twitter account, so we know for sure that it’s all set in stone. While we don’t know what the future holds not even as far as price goes, we will soon find out. The phone won’t be available in stores right away, so if you want to buy it you most likely will have to wait until July.
