OnePlus 5 have to be a top-notch flagship in order to built on the legacy and brand reputation created by OnePlus 3 and 3T last year and based on the rumours we are hitting up every day, OnePlus seems to be on the right track. After rumours about a dual-camera setup at the back, the benchmark scores of the upcoming flagship from OnePlus has been leaked online. The Snapdragon 835 running OnePlus 5 scored 1963 points in the single-core test and 6687 points in the multi-core test.
Interestingly the multi-core test result beats the Samsung Galaxy S8+ (both SD 835 and Exynos variant) while the single – core test results saw the OnePlus 5 beat Samsung Galaxy S8+ Snapdragon 835 whereas the Exynos variant edged above with 1978 points. Meanwhile, Sony XZ Premium which also runs on Snapdragon 835 scored 1943 and 5842 in single-core and multi-core test respectively.The benchmark scores were first revealed by GSMArena and although they look authentic, we are not sure about the software on which the device was running. A lot of times, the scores of the final software might differentiate from the one tested pre-final draft.
For the specifications, OnePlus 5 is likely to come with a 5.5-inch although we are not sure about the resolution yet but some reports claim that the company might go for a Quad HD display this time. Apart from this, the device will pack Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 platform coupled with 8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage.
It will come with a bigger 3600 mAh battery (Evan Blass leaked a 4000 mAh non-removable battery) and Android Nougat will be on board straight out of the box. For the camera, some rumours claim that OnePlus 5 might sport a 23-megapixel which is contrary to previous rumours who claimed that the device will sport a dual camera setup. Interestingly, similar to what we saw on OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus is likely to go with a front-facing fingerprint scanner at the front. OnePlus is also expected to introduce the new Dash Charge 2.0.
Regarding the availability, a summer launch doesn’t necessarily mean next month (June). The official launch might happen sometime later than that say July or even August and we expect OnePlus to bring the OnePlus 5 soon after it is launched globally.
