OnePlus CEO hints that its new handset will contain UFS storage
A weibo post disseminated by OnePlus co-founder and CEO Liu Zuohu (better known as Pete Lau in the English speaking media) hints that the OnePlus 5 will feature UFS (Universal Flash Storage). In the post, the executive noted that UFS has become a selling point for high-end flagship smartphones. While he didn't come right out and state that the OnePlus 5 will feature UFS storage, it would seem like a strange point to make if the new model was going to stick with eMMC storage.

With many expecting a hike in price for the OnePlus 5, this would also make sense within the context of including UFS 2.1 on the phone. One of the advantages to using the newer form of storage is its ability to read and write at the same time, something not possible with eMMC. As a result, reading and writing speeds are also much faster.

The OnePlus 5 will be unveiled on June 20th. The phone will be released two-days later. We expect the OnePlus 5 to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, with a dual-camera setup on back. One of the snappers could be shooting in monochrome, which we've seen on a few of the camera samples that allegedly came from the handset. Using a monochrome sensor is supposed to improve the clarity and focus of a picture.
