Latest rumored OnePlus 5 specs include 8GB of RAM
by Alan Friedman / Apr 10, 2017, 12:28 AM
The Snapdragon 835 chipset will power the new unit, which means that it will feature an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. The display will have reduced bezels in line with most of 2017's high-end handsets, and OnePlus is expected to finally make the jump to a 1440 x 2560 resolution screen. It would be the first OnePlus phone not to be equipped with a 1080 x 1920 (FHD) panel. The report says to expect a dual-camera setup on the next OnePlus handset, which could arrive in the second half of the year. The price will be a tad under $500.
After the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, the company's reputation is such that even hearing a rumor that includes 8GB of RAM doesn't seem so far fetched. Still, we would suggest taking this story with the proverbial grain of salt.

I said it 5yrs ago all phones should have minimum 8gb ram but they said it was overkill. One plus finally after 5yrs admits I was right.

TBH, almost everything in a flagship phone nowadays are overkill for what most people uses it for. 4 out of 5 people i know use their 700$ phones just for social media and messaging apps. The only reason we have better hardware every year is because technology keeps moving forward.

Why the hell these stupid people think that more the RAM is faster the phone will be...... Better focus on CPU and GPU power. I will not go into technicalities, but 8gb RAM is required when the actual app/game file size is above 30gb.....

8gb ram is future but I don't think SD835 is capable for that much amount of ram. Even SD835 is just little more powerful compared than sd821. 6gb ram is better for SD835. 8gb ram is overkill for SD835.

Might have something to do with why the OnePlus 3/3T bitch slap the Galaxy S7 in speed tests and multitasking. Also beats with Pixel phones as well. I wonder why...... Couldn't possibly have anything to do with memory.

2019 flagship killer. Overkill the competition.

Hah, no. 8GB of RAM won't fight battery degradation and the fact the 835 although being the joint fastest mobile chip right now, it won't be able to keep up with midrange chips in 2019 and certainly won't get update support past then.

Lol that kinda came to my mind too, but hopefully it won't be a similar situation.

Never was that interested in any Oneplus 1 phones. Except for the Oneplus X. That was just too sexy for price I bought that and sold it. Was just never sold on the size or the software. If I want stock I would go Pixel. If I wanted a skin I would go for something that's the polar opposite of stock. Maybe this time is the charm.

Hope they finally include NFC and sell this thing without invites from day 1. I also hope the reduced bezels means no home or capacitive buttons. Chances are the Pixel 2 will be another disappointment from Google which means it all rests on One Plus for the stock Android people.
