OnePlus 5 Price & Design Revealed Ahead Of Launch


Everyone already knows the OnePlus 5 is around the corner. The company is not holding it back to tease us about its upcoming phone. Instead of letting the rumor mill do its job, the Chinese maker is dropping some considerable hints.

In the teaser on its Twitter account, OnePlus has almost revealed the design of its upcoming flagship. Surprisingly (or maybe not), the OnePlus 5 bears resemblance to iPhone 7 in many aspects. Or one could say it looks like OPPO R11 as both the companies have same parent, BBK Corp. But the general public and critics will take it more as a clone of iPhone 7 Plus. The back of the phone, color, camera placement are just too much like Apple’s flagship.

The next part is brought to us by the rumor mill. It’s already official that OnePlus 5 will be using Snapdragon 835 processor. The TrueTech has given us few more details. It will come in two RAM/storage variants, 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB.

The rumor mill has also revealed the Indian pricing for OnePlus 5, one of key markets for the company. The 6GB variant will cost Rs.32,999 while 8GB one will cost Rs.37,999 which translates to ~US $512 and $590 respectively. Looking at the trend, the company is slowly moving towards the ‘flagship pricing’ every year.
