Having already leaked in bits and pieces over the past several weeks, the design of boutique Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus‘ upcoming flagship is hardly a mystery anymore. Nonetheless, this is perhaps the best look at both the front and back of the OnePlus 5 among a sea of partial views and less-than-completely-clear shots.
Bearing more than a passing resemblance to Apple’s latest models, the OnePlus 5 also borrows the dual camera configuration from the iPhone 7 Plus — revealed by The Verge to have 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel Sony sensors with f/1.7 and f/2.6 apertures, respectively.
Thanks to a partial slip-up from Amazon India, we also know that this 5.5-inch device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset — and that at least one configuration sports a whopping 8GB of RAM (paired with 128GB of storage).
"OnePlus 5 powered by 2.35GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM will release on 22 June 2017 as an exclusive at Amazon.in."
