It seems that the OnePlus is quite busy these days, as according to reports, the company is preparing to officially announce its OnePlus 5. We remind you that some previous reports were suggesting that this event will be held on June 15, 2017, but it seems that the company had to delay the event for some reason.
We have to mention Carl Pei and Pete Lau, the leaders of OnePlus, have not confirmed anything about this event yet, so it is not sure yet if the device will truly be unveiled in two weeks.
However, we have to mention that Lau has confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will be the manufacturer’s thinnest flagship, but it seems that it will it will not come cheap. We remind you that the OnePlus 3T is 7.4mm thick, but the company’s thinnest phone until now was the OnePlus X, which is only 6.9mm thick.
However, let’s just assume that the company will release an OnePlus 5 device that will be 7.3mm thick (not 6.8mm). We remind you that some reports have suggested that the device will come with a 3300 mAh battery, which will surely be a challenge to fit it in such a thin device. Let’s not forget that some previous reports were suggesting that the device will actually have a 3000 mAh cell, which is most likely to happen, since the company wants to release a thinner handset.
When it comes to the chipset, the OnePlus 5 will feature a Snapdragon 835 model, but it seems that Lau has mentioned before that it wants to reduce touch latency. According to the rumors that are all over Weibo, the sales of the OnePlus 5 will actually start within a week after the unveiling.
What are your thoughts about the upcoming OnePlus 5? Will you purchase the device once it hits the stores?
