OnePlus 5 gets listed on­line

The DQWeek (Chennai) - - TELECOM - DQW NEWS BU­REAU New Delhi

OnePlus' up­com­ing flag­ship (or flag­ship killer) smart­phone, likely to be called OnePlus 5, has been a sub­ject of nu­mer­ous leaks and ru­mours in the past few weeks. So far, the com­pany hasn't re­vealed any de­tails about the smart­phone. How­ever, a new list­ing on Oppo Mart web­site has not just spilled the beans about the yet-to-be-an­nounced hand­set's al­leged spec­i­fi­ca­tions, price and even ship­ping date.

Ac­cord­ing to the list­ing, OnePlus 5 will cost $449, or about Rs 28,800. But this is highly un­likely, as the OnePlus 3T (64GB) al­ready costs Rs 29,999 in In­dia. Since the new smart­phone will un­doubt­edly be more pow­er­ful, it's likely to cost more as well. The list­ing fur­ther men­tions that the ex­pected ship­ping time­frame of the OnePlus 5 is in the 'be­gin­ning of June' this year.

As for the al­leged spec­i­fi­ca­tions, OnePlus 5 is ex­pected to fea­ture a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440 pix­els) res­o­lu­tion dis­play and have a Qual­comm Snap­dragon 835 pro­ces­sor, paired with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 stor­age. It's also been men­tioned that the smart­phone will sport a dual-cam­era setup at the back with two 12MP mod­ules, in ad­di­tion to an 8MP front-fac­ing snap­per Some other fea­tures ex­pected in­clude a fin­ger­print sen­sor mounted on the front, Dash Charge 2.0 tech­nol­ogy, 4G LTE and dual-SIM card sup­port, as well as a 3,850mAh bat­tery.

In re­lated news, a web­site called re­cently shared four im­ages, which are claimed to have been shot us­ing the OnePlus 5's cam­era. The EXIF data from the im­ages shows that they have been clicked us­ing a de­vice bear­ing model num­ber A5000, which falls in line with the de­vice num­bers of pre­vi­ous OnePlus mod­els. For ref­er­ence, OnePlus 3came with model num­ber A3000 num­ber. Also, the lo­ca­tion de­tails men­tioned in the data sug­gest that the im­ages were taken in Shen­zhen, China, which is where the head­quar­ters of OnePlus are.

OnePlus is yet to con­firm any­thing about the up­com­ing smart­phone. But if the afore­men­tioned claims are true, the OnePlus 5 might in­deed live up to its 'flag­ship killer' tag.
