As a quick recap for those who missed the announcement, the OnePlus 5 is the latest smartphone from the company, and no, they did not skip the OnePlus 4, but rather they chose to name it the OnePlus 5 as “4” in Chinese is usually seen as a bad omen. It packs some pretty high-end specs and looks like it can compete with the best phones out there in the market today.

This includes a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB of RAM (there is an 8GB variant too), a dual camera setup on the back, a 3,300mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor, and will come with the latest OxygenOS build which is based around Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

While the handset does appear to be packing some high-end hardware, there has been a bit of controversy as the company was found to be “cheating” the benchmark results, although the company’s execs have since weighed in on the issue and claimed that they were merely trying to show the full potential of the phone. The handset is priced at $479 for the 6GB RAM/64GB storage configuration, and $539 for the 8GB RAM/128GB storage configuration.
