OnePlus 5 performance details are out; confirms Snapdragon 835

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, shared the post on the OnePlus Forums while confirming that the upcoming smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.


OnePlus posted a blog post late last night talking about the performance on OnePlus 5. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, shared the post on the OnePlus Forums while confirming that the upcoming smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. The CEO went on to explain that the smartphone maker is working hard to optimize the performance of the processor in the upcoming smartphone for a better experience.

OnePlus did not provide details about what hardware will come inside the OnePlus 5 but it did explain that it is focusing on improving touch latency. The engineers at OnePlus have tested scrolling on different phones. Due to the lack of benchmarks and industry case studies engineers had to employ high-speed cameras to track screen movements and measure input speeds. The company claimed that it has increased the touch responsiveness of the smartphone for a more ‘seamless user experience.’

The second thing that OnePlus explained in the blog post is improved app management in OxygenOS. OnePlus 5 will be ready with the apps that you frequently use and it will deprioritize the apps that you rarely use, keeping the apps from affecting overall performance. The company wanted to give us a hint about everything that is doing to improve the upcoming smartphone. This comes right after the company announced its partnership with DxO to improve the camera in OnePlus 5.

OnePlus is taking a different approach from the one it took while marketing the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3 (and 3T). The company overhyped the ‘flagship killer’ tag during the marketing of OnePlus 2 and completely skipped on it during the launch of OnePlus 3 (and 3T). For the OnePlus 5, the Chinese smartphone maker is taking an approach of gradually building the hype using feedback from forums and social media channels about the problems that marred the OnePlus 3.
