OnePlus 5 specs allegedly leak out: Dual rear camera and 3,600 mAh battery with faster charging expected

Chinese manufacturer OnePlus has produced some beastly smartphones over the last few years, so it's not surprising to see the amount of hype generated by the company's upcoming flagship - the OnePlus 5. Where there's hype there are also many rumors and leaks, and the latest serving of speculations comes from Weibo.
allegedly reveals some of the most important specs of the device. Some of the information coincides with previous rumors - we are very likely to see a vertically arranged dual rear camera setup on the OnePlus 5, and the poster claims that the recently leaked photo samples which were apparently taken with the handset can be used as proof for it.A recent post from Kumamoto Technology
By now, everyone agrees that Snapdragon 835 will be present on the flagship, but there were some disputes regarding the amount of RAM on the device. Some of the earlier rumors suggested that the OnePlus 5 will come with a whopping 8GB of RAM, but this post indicates that the phone will ship with 6GB of the stuff which is still quite impressive by contemporary standards. The fingerprint scanner is likely to stay at the front, while the internal storage department is expected to be at 128GB. Still, Kumamoto Technology doesn't exclude the possibility of an 8GB variant with 256GB storage to pop up in the future.
Moving on to the new stuff - a 3,600 mAh battery will supposedly keep the hamster wheel spinning, while the phone will experience a substantial 25% improvement in terms of charging time (compared to the OnePlus 3T). If you're holding your breath for some information about the headphone jack, we're sorry to disappoint, but the post mentions that there is currently no confirmation whether the phone will feature a 3.5mm audio jack.
As with all such rumors, we advise that you take any unofficial information with a pinch of salt. However, all of these posts suggest that we're going to see another super powerful OnePlus for 2017. Considering that the handset will likely cost way less than the Galaxy S8 or the upcoming iPhone, we're pretty sure that the Chinese manufacturer will have another very successful year.

Is there a good reason for the dual vertical cameras for Oneplus? Or is it a gimmick like what HTC did with the M8?

There is never a reason for dual cameras. But given how reviewers are liking the G6 camera more than the S8(although it's not even close in terms of quality), I guess they have to go that route. Oneplus is a company that relies a lot on word of mouth publicity. They need to tick all the boxes to get good reviews. Does dual cameras matter to normal people? Hell no. But apparently everyone who doesn't have dual cameras are getting slammed on reviews, which is a shame. Edit: oh did you mean why vertical instead of horizontal? That's mostly dependent on the phone's internal design and how the motherboard is configured. It doesn't make a difference if they are close enough.

Lg G6 camera is on par with S8.In some situations S8 has an edge over Lg G6 n in some situations Lg G6 has an edge over S8.Also dual camera is not a gimmick.Its certainly adds something to the camera optics.Dual camera's provide more versatility to the user.I really like wide camera lens on G6.Its very handy in some scenerios as u can capture more in one frame.Lg G6 has an advantage over S8 bcaz of its wide angle second camera.Dual camera is nice thing to have as its adds something useful to camera optics.

Lg G6's main camera is very good in my opinion.Various reviews also shows that in various blind camera cimparisons too.I think camera is always a strong point of Lg.But LG suffered badly from bootloop issues in past.Also Lg G6 is cheaper than S8.I am not taking away anything from S8.S8 is really good phone.If you taking price into consideration than Lg G6 is more value for money.Also wide angle camera is something S8 is not having right now.If rumors to be believed-upcoming note 8 is going to have dual cameras.Also Lg G6 is more durable than S8.On launch day in my area-Lg G6 is available 250$ less than S8.Isnt is great!!!!

Sorry, but G6 is more of a S7 competitor than S8 given the specs. I don't expect a 1/3" sensor, 32GB storage and SD821 in a 2017 flagship. The S7 has more value for money than the G6. The Oneplus 3 has more value for money than the G6. Does it make them better phones? No.

I sent my G6 back because of the main camera. I could eek out some good shots using the manual mode but in auto it was inconsistent especially the white balance. The rest of phone was excellent especially the design and that screen.

There's actually a plain simple reason to use two cameras: cost. It would cost more to produce a better (larger) sensor with low profile. However having two sensors doesn't translate into twice the image quality, currently it's more about using additional software to help with noise and bokeh or coupling different optics.

While it doesnt help improve raw camera quality so far (which are basically thesame across the board at this point), its usefulness is for adding features which helps to give the phone a versatile and unique user experience e.g Optical zoom, bokeh effect, AR, monochrome and so on.

Raw camera quality is not the same at all. In most conditions it is but in low light, every phone except the pixel and the s7/s8 falters hard. I like to take images in manual mode raw, so the processing doesn't matter to me. All I care about is the lens, ISP and the sensor quality. No phone even comes close to the sensor of the s7/s8. And if you want a good auto camera, nothing comes close to pixel. Yes, the reviewers claim that G6 is good. What i see is terribly small sensor which has to keep ISO high and shutter speed low to barely get light. Also there's very heavy sharpening, videos are crazy oversaturated and noise suppression doesn't look nice. Dual camera phones usually use a cheap primary sensor to compensate for the price of 2 modules. I care about just the primary camera, not the front facer, not the zoom and not the wide angle. Of course it may matter to you, and I've got no problems with that.

1- Dual camera phones technology still in the beginning of development it will get better and better and a solution that have endless possibilities 2- No phone even comes close to the sensor of the s7/s8 really ??!! s7 and s8 comes with 1/2.5 sensor, google pixel in the other hand comes with 1/2.3 if cares about just numbers but sensor is not everything yes galaxies one of the best but not the best stop kidding yourself.

I never forget s**t. Yes, the S7 and s8 have small sensors, but they still collect more light than any competitor. The phones with bigger sensors are either Sony with small sensors or pixel with no OIS. So the S7 and s8 are still unbeaten, even though they don't have what I want. I have just come to terms with the reality that no company is going to make the phone I want.

Tyrion in low light my G5 take better picture than S7 , S8 and even G6. The G6 is a disapointement on thats end. The wide angle camera is much better than the one on the G5 but the main camera is a joke in low light.

Because "everyone" is doing dual camera. Same thing happens...more megapixels in the camera, EVERYONE does it. Everyone goes for slimmer phones, EVERYONE does it. Less bezels, EVERYONE does it. Useless crap if you ask me. Dual cameras...LOL, for PINHOLE cameras? How about making the SENSOR larger, to capture MORE light? Larger sensors, less space between sensor connections, less chance of the signal to noise ratio (crosstalk), less chance of overprocessing the image to get rid of the sparkles in lower light. But, to have a bigger sensor on the back, "might detract" from the "stylish" aspect of the phone, and, we all know the hipsters would never go for that ;)

I don't care for audio-jack or the latest SOC, nor that dual camera. I do want the OP5 to be waterproof and the bigger battery is always welcome.

The problem is... not everyone is like you. It just One Plus` best decision.

3600 mAh!!!! That's awesome. I was on the fence of getting an S8+, but now i'll wait if this turns out true. Money is no object for me. But I'd rather have amazeballs battery life than good enough.

Galaxy S8+ has 88h of endurance rating on GSMarena, which many people trust very much. Therefore it's still not a bad choice per se.

Why don't u wait for the note 8(even if i know most people never use the s-pen) but still it will be better than the gs8 and it will have a better camera (dual camera)..
posted on May 04, 2017, 4:22 AM 0
Note 8 will likely have a bigger screen and a smaller battery than the s8+, since the S pen takes space inside the body. So not really interested. Also it will not have a better camera. It will just be a dual camera, which is a gimmick IMO.

And you get the phone at decent price after 6 months from release.
