OnePlus 5 is now reportedly available for pre-order via Chinese retailer OppoMart, even before the flagship phone’s official unveiling set to happen on June 20. OppoMart’s pre-order listing comes right after the device’s flash sale registrations on China’s JD.com.
Along with the pre-order listing, OppoMart has also shared an official render of the upcoming OnePlus 5. Besides, the listings also shows the specs of the device. That said, sources suggest that there are a few discrepancies when it comes to specs. According to OppoMart’s listing, the OnePlus 5 is supposed to come with a 5.5-inch QHD display, which happens to be incorrect, as the company has hinted that its next flagship might stick to a Full HD display.
Elsewhere, the listing suggests that the OnePlus 5 gets a Snapdragon 835 quad-core processor, which again is incorrect, as the Snapdragon 835 features 8 cores. Also, OppoMart says the device will have two variants – one featuring 6GB of RAM and the other will have 8GB of RAM.
As far as shipping goes, OppoMart says it’ll start by the beginning of July. Not to mention, the listing reveals that the OnePlus 5 will be available for $549. The Android flagship is expected to be made available in Red, Black, Gold, along with a Gradient Unicorn color options. Reports suggest that there might be a OnePlus 5 ceramic variant.
OnePlus 5: Release Date and Features
We’re just a few days away before the OnePlus 5’s official unveiling on June 20. The company has already teased a few pictures of the handset, giving us a good idea as to what we can expect. The image highlight’s the phone’s rear dual camera setup. The company has joined hands with DxO Mark to raise the stakes in the camera department. The company aims to compete with flagships from Samsung and Apple. One of the rear cams is believed to be capable of shooting images of a max 16-megapixel resolution. The company had earlier revealed shots taken with the phone’s rear cam and those looked impressive enough.
Besides, the OnePlus 5 is said to feature a bezel-free display, something that allows manufacturers to make smaller bezels than ever before, the Galaxy S8 is a prime example. OnePlus 5 would likely sport a sleek and slim form factor with some serious specs under its hood. The upcoming handset will come with a class leading 8 GB RAM in its highest-specced version bundled with the latest the Snapdragon 835 processor.
A slightly lower-end version with 6 GB RAM is also believed to be in the offing. Rest of the specs include a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p AMOLED display. OnePlus 5 is also expected to feature the classic 3.5mm headphone jack, along with a Type-C port as well.
In other related news, the OnePlus 5 has reportedly surpassed over 500,000 registrations in China ahead of its global unveiling on Tuesday, June 20.
