Today, we witnessed the birth of a new OnePlus smartphone with a noticeable difference. At an event scheduled minutes ago, OnePlus officially pull the wraps off its next-generation long rumored device, OnePlus 5, with elegant design, faster chipset, high-end cameras, and a more-than-sufficient RAM and storage capacity.

The OnePlus 5 is here to take over from OnePlus 3T which itself was a sub-model of OnePlus 3 that was launched "exactly" a year and a week ago. The company has jumped from number 3 to 5, bypassing the number 4 as it is considered as an unlucky number in Chinese tradition, this is quite a surprise considering the fact the phone is not meant for China only but for global markets.

The most interesting aspect of OnePlus new device is the octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset it packs inside, which is Qualcomm's most powerful processor as of now. The company also followed the latest trend in mobile photography by opting for dual rear cameras—horizontally-placed with the first boasting a 16MP sensor with a brilliant f/1.7 aperture, while the second has a 20MP sensor with f/2.6 aperture for capturing depth of field and portrait mode.

The OnePlus 5 comes in two different flavors, the standard version which is the cheapest has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the premium version is loaded with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Both version however doesn't supports external storage.

Lets talk about the build. OnePlus has done a wonderful job in making its sixth smartphone as thin as possible without negatively affecting the size of battery it can carry. The 5 is 7.25mm thick and weighs just 153 grams. Its slim anodized aluminium body does not stopped it from packing a 3,300mAh battery which should be sufficient enough to last for a day before it requires charging. With Dash Charge fast charging feature users can quickly filled the battery up to the brim within few hours.

The OnePlus 5 runs Oxygen OS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat; has a fingerprint sensor beneath the home button, and supports dual SIM with dual standby.
