We get you a list of what all we know for sure about the OnePlus 5.


1. Processor
OnePlus 5 wanted to be the first smartphone in India at least to offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC only to be beaten by Sony Xperia XZ Premium and the HTC U11. The OnePlus 5 will come loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC that's also a flagship processor by Qualcomm. The RAM configurations on offer with the OnePlus 5 will be 6GB and 8GB. Yes, 2017 will see an 8GB RAM smartphone sold in India. That's more RAM than many notebooks out there.

The phone is also expected to start at a price point fo Rs 32,999 making it the most expensive OnePlus device to retail in India. The 8GB RAM version could be sold as high as Rs 37,999.

3. Design
The company has gone ahead and shown the design on Twitter already. The image suggests that the OnePlus 5 will be slimmer and taller than the OnePlus 3T. The design might not be way different from the front and you'll be getting a fingerprint sensor at the front bottom of the phone just like the OnePlus 3T. Lastly, OnePlus 5 will also have a more curvy design than the OnePlus 3T.

4. Camera
OnePlus 5 will sport a dual-camera just like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, LG G6 and the Honor 8. The OnePlus 5's camera will also have one normal lens and one telephoto lens. The phone is also expected to sport portrait mode images just like the iPhone 7 Plus.
