OnePlus 5 to come with 8GB RAM, launch in June
OnePlus, which is skipping the OnePlus 4 name post the release of its latest flagship OnePlus 3T, is expected to launch its next flagship OnePlus 5 with 8GB RAM in June.
Chinese handset-maker OnePlus' latest flagship -- the OnePlus 5 -- will come with 8GB RAM, leaked images show.
The company that has skipped the OnePlus 4 name and is moving to the 5 post the launch of OnePlus 3T is also expected to launch the OnePlus 5 in June. Interestingly, previous rumours suggested that the phone will pack 6GB of RAM but a leaked screenshot suggests that the upcoming flagship from OnePlus will instead feature a massive 8GB of RAM.
As per a leaked screenshot from Chinese microblogging website Weibo, the 128GB storage variant of the OnePlus 5 smartphone will pack 8GB of RAM and will run Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box based on HydrogenOS (the China version of OxygenOS), as pointed out in a report by AndroidPure.
It is possible for OnePlus to come out with two memory variants, 6GB and 8GB of RAM, coupled with 64GB and 128GB built-in storage respectively but as there has been no official confirmation, we will suggest you to take this new information with apt amount of scepticism.
As per earlier rumours, the OnePlus 5 is expected to come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 SoC. It is rumoured to feature a 5.5-inch quad-HD (1440x2560 pixels) display.
In terms of optics, previous rumours suggested a 23-megapixel rear camera but recent rumours have suggested that the rear dual-camera setup on the OnePlus 5 will feature a pair of 12-megapixel sensors (standard RGB + monochrome). A retail listing of the phone has also tipped it to come with 8-megapixel front camera, which will be surprising as OnePlus 3T offered a 16-megapixel camera.
