Yesterday OnePlus announced an online event on June 20 to unveil its flagship OnePlus 5 smartphone. As expected the company has scheduled a separate launch event in India on June 22nd. It is also giving away 5 OnePlus 5 phones for those setting up SMS alert (from today to June 20th) to watch the OnePlus 5 launch live.
Few hours back we saw the first press render of the OnePlus 5 showing the smartphone in black color with dual rear cameras, LED flash and a secondary microphone. It has a 2.5D curved glass screen and a large front camera sensor.
OnePlus already confirmed that the smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform. OnePlus has teamed up with DxO, a photography benchmark to enhance the camera on the OnePlus 5. According to earlier rumors, the smartphone is said to feature fingerprint sensor on the front, similar to the OnePlus 3 and 3T, up to 8GB of RAM and Android 7.1 Nougat. The CEO also teased recently that it will be the thinnest flagship.
