Confirmed: OnePlus 5 Officially Launching On June 20

The OnePlus 5 will be officially unveiled on June 20, the Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer confirmed on Tuesday. In a statement provided to Android Headlines, OnePlus revealed that the online launch event will be held at 12 PM EDT, adding that users can register their interest in the handset by visiting the source link beneath this writing and sharing their email address with the company so that they can be reminded of the release later this month. The official confirmation from the Shenzhen, Guangdong-based firm dispels previous rumors that the OnePlus 5 is set to be unveiled on June 15, though it doesn't disclose any more details about the upcoming handset.

While OnePlus is a relatively young company, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quickly made a name for itself due to its aggressive product strategy aimed at providing high value for money, making its devices a popular choice among Android users. Many industry watchers are thus touting the OnePlus 5 as one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year as the device is expected to offer high-end specs at a price that should be significantly lower to the majority of its flagship competitors. OnePlus recently started a new marketing campaign aimed at building up anticipation for the release of the OnePlus 5 and the company revealed a number of details on the handset in the process. Among other things, the Chinese OEM confirmed that the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip (SoC) and feature software developed by French imaging company DxO Labs, in addition to being slimmer and more compact than its predecessor, the 2016 OnePlus 3T.

The OnePlus 5 is thought to ship in two variants, with the base model allegedly boasting 6GB of RAM and 64GB of flash memory, while the more premium one should feature 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. OnePlus essentially confirmed that the device will sport a Full HD display panel that's expected to be of the 5.5-inch variety, just like the one present on the OnePlus 3T. More details on the upcoming Android flagship will likely follow soon as OnePlus is bound to continue teasing the device in the run-up to its official unveiling.
