One Plus, the company redefining flagship smartphone segment at half the price what big players offer, has launched long teased One Plus 5 in the Indian market just a couple of days after the global announcement. The Chinese smartphone maker has collected big success and sales figure only talks a bit about it.
Touted as ‘Flagship Killer,’ One Plus has been giving tough competition to other makers and coercing buyers to give a second thought for spending big bucks. One Plus 5 is yet another attempt to provide those seeking performance like Samsung Galaxy S8, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and HTC U11. So, Is One Plus 5 a worthy rival? Let’s find out.
One Plus 5 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 64 bit eight-core processor clocked at 2.35 GHz, Adreno 540GPU, 6 or 8 Gigabytes of RAM and 64-128 Gigabytes of onboard storage. One Plus may have thought the storage as sufficient for many as they didn’t include any expandable storage option. At the front, the device boasts a 5.5-inch 1080p Optic AMOLED display protected with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. A single peak at the device is enough to describe its iPhone 7 look alike design both at the back and front and if you exclude Oneplus logo from the rear, hardly anyone would mistake it for not being an apple product. Earlier smartphones by the company were crafted perfectly, we don’t see any reason for making it an iPhone ditto.
But then Oneplus never said it would not be an Apple lookalike. The company has also been teasing its slim ergonomics built saying it would be the slimmest Oneplus device ever and yes the promise has been delivered with the phone measuring only 7.25mm in thickness, not the slimmest out there, however, most definitely the thinnest Oneplus so far. Rumors and leaks predicted the smartphone to flaunt a dual camera setup on par with Samsung or iPhone 7 and the words came out to be true with the 5 sporting a dual camera setup, the first one being a 16 Mega Pixel sensor having EIS while the secondary sensor is 20 Mega Pixel with dual LED flash. The camera department made the Oneplus 5 the first phone to feature this big duo camera. On the other hand, front panel comes equipped with a 16 MP f/2.0 shooter.
Other specs include a multi-functional home key which is also a fingerprint scanner, USB type C, Bluetooth 5.0, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, bottom firing speakers and its in-house dash charging. The prices for both the 6GB-64GB and 8GB-128GB variants are INR 32,999 and 37,999 respectively. The smartphone will go on open sale from June 27 only on Amazon India.
