After being officially unveiled a couple of days ago, the OnePlus 5 was launched in India in a mega launch event in Mumbai today. The OnePlus 5 sports a dual-camera setup, top-of-the-line specs, and an all-new design.
OnePlus has always opted for the top-of-the-line internals for its flagship devices, and the OnePlus 5 is no different. This one is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 mobile platform backed by the Adreno 540 GPU. There are two memory variants available – one with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage and a higher-end version with a massive 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
Of course, the highlight of the smartphone this time around is its camera setup. The OnePlus 5 sports a dual camera setup on the back, with one 16 MP sensor with an ƒ/1.7 aperture and another 20 MP telephoto lens with an ƒ/2.6 aperture.
The OnePlus 5 is runs OxygenOS based Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. As is the case with other OxygenOS-powered phones, you can expect plenty of customization options here, coupled with a minimalist software approach overall.
