OnePlus 5 rumoured to feature a 5.5-inch 2K display with Snapdragon 835 SoC

Will OnePlus finally give in and launch its next smartphone with a 2K display?


The OnePlus 3 and the 3T have been one of the best selling smartphones from OnePlus. Even though they were launched last year, they still offer the best value for money. Now however, we are getting closer to a new OnePlus smartphone and early speculations have started to emerge for the upcoming OnePlus 5.

Why 5 and not 4? Well, it is said that 4 is not a very lucky number in China mostly because its pronunciation is similar to the word death or decease.

Coming back to business, a Chinese outlet called PC Pop said that the upcoming OnePlus smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch 2K resolution display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, a 3,000 mAh battery, and 23 MP rear-facing camera. It will also come with a revamped design. The new design will include minimal front bezels which could potentially mean that the fingerprint scanner could be moved to the back like many other Android smartphones.

There is a possibility that OnePlus will not change the front capacitive Android navigation buttons, along with the ability to enable on-screen buttons. Considering we saw 6 GB of RAM on the OnePlus 3 and 3T, we could be seeing similar or even 8 GB RAM on the upcoming model.

We had earlier heard a rumour that the OnePlus 5 would get a dual-edged curved display with a glass body.

There is no confirmation or even a hint if the company is actually working on launching a new smartphone anytime soon, so don't keep your hopes high. But we will report more leaks and rumours (if any) pop up in the future.
