Though, it is also true that OnePlus' USP has been to make phones with great specs and sell them at a much more affordable price as compared to the flagships. It's so extremely similar that it'd be hard for people not intimately familiar with either to confuse one for the other - save the logos. With the One Plus 5, the pressure finally seems to be getting to One Plus, with the unprecedented media blitz, and reports of benchmark test manipulation etc. A pop-up essentially doubles up as an experience zone where a company showcases products to fans and potential customers.
Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus launched its OnePlus 5 smartphone at a global launch event on June 20, 2017.
The long-awaited OnePlus 5 is here. And. It. Is.
The thin design of the OnePlus 5 means that the 3300 mAh battery is smaller than the 3400 mAh on the previous OnePlus handset (the OnePlus 3T).
Although the starting price of the OnePlus 5 is slightly higher - Rs 3,000 to be precise - it is not too steep.it costs just Rs 3,000 more than the OnePlus 3T, the last year's Android flagship that continues to be one of the best phones in the market.
The OnePlus 5 didn't just happen overnight.
Pricing. There are two versions of the OnePlus 5: A Slate Gray model with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for $479, and a Midnight Black model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage for $550.
OnePlus 5 features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,920x1080.

To begin with, Amazon is now offering the 32GB variant of the Apple iPhone 7 for Rs 42,999. It is powered by a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and will run on Android 7.1.1. For this iteration, OnePlus seems to have taken a lot of cues from Apple's iPhone 7 Plus: right from the design of the phone to the placement of the dual cameras and even the positioning of the noise cancelling microphone.
OnePlus 5 has a 16 MP front camera like 3T. The smartphone which has been keeping the rumour mills whirling for months has already gone on sale in the USA and European markets. Both have a compass and magnetometer, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and gyroscope. The OnePlus 5 can be operated with capacitive hardware buttons as well as on screen navigation icons.
OnePlus 5 connectivity options include 4G LTE/VoLTE (with VoLTE), dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C (v2.0).
