OnePlus 5 Possible Release Date & Specs: Coming To Markets In Q2 With Snapdragon 835 SoC, Ceramic Body & QHD Display!

OnePlus has been one of the biggest surprises of the smartphone market. It started out in the mobile arena in 2014 by launching the OnePlus One- an exclusive device in itself with an invite-only status. Now it has become one of the highest selling smartphone brands. In 2017, OnePlus is going to compete with the likes of LG, Huawei and Samsung by introducing the OnePlus 4 (or rather, the OnePlus 5) - and it is supposedly going to be one of the best efforts of the company.

Why could the next phone be a OnePlus 5 instead of OnePlus 4? According to Chinese culture and values, number 4 is not a number associated with good luck. OnePlus, being a Chinese smartphone company, may follow traditional values and skip OnePlus 4 completely. However, one doesn't have to worry about not getting your hands on the latest model! A similar strategy was used by its sister company, Vivo when it released V5 after V3.

The release date of OnePlus 5 / OnePlus 4 has not been confirmed by the manufacturer yet. It may be released sometime in the second quarter of 2017. The recent speculations point to a release date sometime between May and July 2017. This timeline is quite sensible because other flagship smartphones would have released by then. Phones like Galaxy S8 and LG G6 would already be in the market and OnePlus 5 would have specific phones and markets to target.

The specifications of OnePlus 5 / OnePlus 4 are expected to be top notch. The first phone by this brand, OnePlus One was deemed to be a "flagship killer" as it offered awesome specs but came with a reasonable price tag. OnePlus 5 / OnePlus 4 will have the same specs as Galaxy S8 and LG G6 but with a much lower price range. It is expected to carry Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 with 8GB of RAM. The body will come with a new frame and will have a "Dash Charging" feature.

The OnePlus 5 / OnePlus 4 may feature 4000mAh battery. We expect OnePlus 5 to feature Android Nougat. It is rumored that OnePlus 5 may change the body of the upcoming handset. OnePlus 5 may possibly have a ceramic body instead of an aluminum one. Keep browsing MobileNApps for more news and updates about OnePlus 5 release date and specs.
