OnePlus has stuck to the Display which is present on the previous OnePlus 3T with the new device sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display covered in Gorilla Glass 5 with a standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Those hoping for a Quad HD screen will have to wait yet another year, it seems.
While Instead of increasing the battery life the new OnePlus 5 (3300mah) has slightly decreased battery than the OnePlus 3T(3400mah) This is done to get the phone on Diet. The latest flagship is the thinnest phone from the company on the market measuring just 7.25 mm thin.
The new device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and backed by the Adreno 540 GPU, which should allow this device to handle anything you throw at it. In terms of memory, you have two options: a model with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage or a higher-end version with a massive 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
Perhaps the biggest change to the spec sheet this time around is the camera setup. The OnePlus 5 has a dual camera setup on the back, with one 16 MP sensor with a ƒ/1.7 aperture, and another 20 MP telephoto lens with a ƒ/2.6 aperture. OnePlus says this is the highest resolution dual-camera system on any smartphone. And because there are now two cameras on the back, that allows for the phone to capture those fancy bokeh (or portrait) shots.
OnePlus 5 has customized UI Oxygen running on top of Android and the software seems pretty much same from OnePlus 3T and the new device will be running on Nougat. The company has stood in terms of support updates and with OnePlus 5 we expect to receive updates until 2 years. OnePlus included a few new software features on the 5, including a Reading Mode that uses gray-scale mapping and the blue light filter to provide a reading experience similar to what you’d find on an e-reader. Other OxygenOS features include an Automatic Night Mode, expanded screenshots, gaming do not disturb mode and more.
