OnePlus 5 to launch with a 4000mAh battery and three color options? (UPDATE)

Prior to today, we have heard a couple of rumors pertaining to the battery that will power the OnePlus 5. One rumor says that a 4000mAh cell will be inside the handset, while another rumor states that the phone will be energized by a 3300mAh cell. Most likely, we won't know the capacity of the battery used on the OnePlus 5 until the phone is unveiled officially on June 20th. Meanwhile, an alleged specs sheet for the OnePlus 5 shows that there will be two different variants of the device.

UPDATE: Promotional material disseminated by SlashLeaks would seem to indicate that the battery will weigh in at 3300mAh. Check out the image in the slideshow,

One model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage is rumored to be priced at Rs.32,999, or the equivalent of $511.89 USD. A second model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage could be priced at Rs.37,999, the equivalent of $590 USD. The phone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 835 chipset featuring an octa-core 2.3GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. Color options for the OnePlus 5 are said to include Slate Gray, Soft Gold and Deep Black (128GB model only).

The dual-camera setup could offer one 16MP and one 20MP snapper with one of the sensors shooting in monochrome for improved sharpness and clarity. Android 7.1.1 could be pre-installed. Be sure to check in on Tuesday for more information following the unveiling of the next flagship killer.

Highly unlikely, since the the OnePlus 5 is going to be thinner than OnePlus 3T. 3300 mAh seems more likely.

China is the modern USA where "BIGGER IS BETTER"... Just look at Xiaomi Mi Max 2 with a 6.5" Display and monstrous 5,300mAh battery (I can only imagine the trauma if it go 'kaput' during a call)... Even bigger than the previous versions 4,800mAh... My whole point is that Chinese consumers are absolutely fascinated by massive batteries and that's the second BIGGEST selling point for Xiaomi Smartphones, the first being SoCs... So, I certainly won't be surprised if it turns out to be true and legit. Xiaomi's best selling Mi Note 4 (Snapdragon 625 variant) has a 4,100mAh battery and it's pretty darn thin, if you ask me...

Pop quiz time...! What do we get when you cancel the first two alphabets from "iPhone Plus"...? We get "One Plus"...! I used to wonder why that company has such a bloody weird name, and now I've 'decoded' it, for your eyes only...! It's the 'iPhone Plus' without the 'IP' which makes sense cause this phone probably lack any 'IP' certification of dust and water resistance... I may be old, but not obsolete... Oh well... G'Day!

GreenMan, you didn't finish decoding the name, you have to tell the full truth. If we remove the "IP" we are left with "hone Plus". We also have to remove the "H". Where else have I seen a lone "H"? Preparation H. One we remove the "H" we are left with a phone that while likely not IP certified, also doesn't include Hemorrhoids. I think that most people can agree that Apple can be a real pain in the..... well you get it.

Of course it is not 4000mAh, why would someone want a phone with good battery life?...

Want good battery life? Get one of those 'survival' feature phones which comes with a 10,000+mAh battery and possess a stand-by time of almost 3 months, and about a whole month of music playback (great if zombies are peeking from your windows with their rotten, watery tongues wriggling about) and can also work as a powerful flashlight or powerbank.

Sadly this has become a necessity just to keep any Android phone running for a day if used as intended with all the bells and whistles turned on. Maybe Google should actually do something about wakelocks instead of shoving in more useless s**t in their code.
