The OnePlus 5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and sport a dual camera on the back. The biggest advantage for the device will be its price. It will be priced significantly lower than its competitors, namely, the Galaxy S8, LG G6 and the Pixel devices.
The device is expected to come with 8 GB RAM and a 3,600 mAh battery. OnePlus had recently announced that it is discontinuing the OnePlus 3 and 3T globally. However, the devices are still being sold in India and OnePlus had confirmed that it will not discontinue them in India.
