OnePlus 5 announcement liveblog

OnePlus 5 announcement liveblog
Today is a big day for one of the most controversial rising stars on the mobile market, as OnePlus is gearing up to introduce its newest smartphone, the OnePlus 5. The company made an impressive showing with the 3 and 3T, proving it can be rather nimble and flexible in keeping its line current and fresh, with quick minor editions such as the Snapdragon 821 chipset that got added in the 3T, as well as the trendy Midnight Black version that got introduced earlier this year.

But now it's time for something brand new, something that can truly rival the best flagships of the year (we're talking stuff like the Galaxy S8 or G6). That new thing is the OnePlus 5 – the manufacturer has already confirmed it's indeed coming, and today we'll be able to enjoy OnePlus' reveal event live. If you'd like to watch the OnePlus 5 announcement livestream, you can obviously do that, but if you rather fancy a liveblog with frequent text and image updates, this is the place to be.

EVENT START TIME:  10 AM PT | 12 PM CT | 1 PM ET | 6 PM CET | 4 PM GMT

Instead of all these time-zones, just publish "GMT" please. At least then we don't have to google to know our local time.

i cant wait to see the specs and features of the phone! I hope 8GB is enough RAM to create an android with no lag experience. Im getting tired of my S7e lagging all the time

The OnePlus 3 and 3T are pretty much lag free... Samsung phones tend to be slow as all hell. I know this considering I have an OP3 and my brother an S7 with the Exynos 8890 which is a much better chip than the s820 and my phone is much faster than his. Also microstutters are in way less quantity than the S7. The OP5 will definitely be the fastest android phone that exists

@crzykiller I highly doubt your claim as long as pixel is there.

3T was toe to toe with pixel. Now this has sd835 advantage until pixel 2 so he has a point.

It's not so much about the hardware as it is about the software.

If your s7e lags, it is because of samsung UI and not due to lack of RAM.

My S6 is now starting to Lag terribly Samsung allegedly releasing Nougat but not come to uk yet. So this OnePlus 5 will be my next mobile if the camera can Actually compete with the S8 & Lg G6.

Yes it does look iPhone 7 plus ish but the back is slimier to the oneplus 3t but with the camera moved so its an evolution not a copy like most are saying.

A flagship with a front finger print scanner is what I have been waiting for, & Hopefully Bluetooth 5.0 aswell.

I'm between this and a LG G6. Both are probably about the same price now.

Is the home an actual clicky button on the oneplus 3t? I tried a htc 10 but didn't like the fake button that was just capacitive/fp reader.

OnePlus x with sd660 4gb ram and OnePlus 5 camera set up for 3$50-400 since the 5 will be around $500. Enough power for most people.

They kept the 3.5mm jack, Smart move. Only stupid OEMs remove the headphones jack. :)
