OnePlus 5 Specs Surface On Weibo, 6GB Of RAM In Tow

May 4, 2017 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

The OnePlus 3T is still a hot topic in tech circles, while the OnePlus 5 rumors and leaks are constantly coming in, like the rumors that just surfaced. The OnePlus 5 specs have popped up on Weibo (Chinese social network), along with some additional info about the device. Now, it has not been confirmed that the device will be named the OnePlus 5 just yet, as the OnePlus 4 would be a logical next step, but the number 4 is considered to be unlucky in China, so pretty much everyone expects OnePlus to skip that naming and go with the OnePlus 5 instead.

Having said that, the source says that the OnePlus 5 will sport a 3,600mAh battery. Now, the OnePlus 5’s battery will, allegedly, charge 25% faster than OnePlus 3T’s battery, which is a considerable improvement, though the OnePlus 5’s battery was charging extremely fast as it is. In addition to that, the source claims that the device will sport a dual camera setup on the back, as a number of previous rumors / leaks suggested. He also adds that the phone will ship with a horizontal dual camera placement, like the Xiaomi Mi 6, which means that the image that leaked recently is fake. The device’s fingerprint scanner will be placed on the front, and its placement will be similar to the one used in the OnePlus 3T, which probably means it will be located below the display.

In addition to all that, the source also says that the engineering unit of the OnePlus 5 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and not 8GB of RAM like some rumors suggested, though there’s a possibility that OnePlus might introduce a variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage. The source also mentioned a 3.5mm headphone jack, but he could not confirm whether the device will ship with one or not. Now, in addition to all that, it’s safe to assume that the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, and that Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the device with the company’s OxygenOS on top of it. The OnePlus 5 will probably land next month, so stay tuned.
