Pair of leaks reveal dual camera set-up and 3300mAh battery for the OnePlus 5

Pair of leaks reveal dual camera set-up and 3300mAh battery for the OnePlus 5
Yesterday, we told you that OnePlus is seeking the public's help when it comes to the design of the OnePlus 5 box. Considering that you need a weibo account to select from eight possible choices, the vast majority of voting will be done by consumers in China. Speaking of the box, today a photo surfaced that allegedly shows us one of the sides of the retail container for the handset. The leaked image reveals one of two tag lines that OnePlus will use to help market its latest flagship killer; the print reads "Dual Camera. Clearer Pictures." Those in the know say that there will be a second tag line that says "Focus on what matters."

If the photo of the box is legit, it seconds the rumors about the handset launching with a dual-camera setup on the back of the phone. And promoting the camera on back ties in with OnePlus' decision to work with benchmarking firm DxOMark to improve the camera on the device.

The second leak today comes from weibo where a strange looking poster reveals that the OnePlus 5 will sport a 3300mAh battery. While this would be a lower capacity cell than the 3400mAh battery that powers the OnePlus 3T, it would be in line with recent comments made by OnePlus CEO and co-founder Pete Lau. The executive says that the OnePlus 5 will be the thinnest flagship phone.

Take a look at both images surrounding today's two leaks by clicking on the slideshow below.

*battery. Now that i think about it 3,300mah isnt too shabby though. Then again, i just hope that they use metal instead of glass tbh. Dunno where the nonsense fad is coming from. Apple is rumored to be going back that route, samsung is now head-first into glass, htc is doing glass, lg is into glass, pixel is half-arsed into glass like WTF? If u must have the glass look then do it like the jet black iphone. I dont care about anthenna lines and i dont care about wireless charging as in its current rtate isn't a worthy trade-off.

Yeah, I assumed it would be a 3200mAh battery. If they can optimize well, this could outperform the 3T in battery life

Nexus 4 started the glass back trend, then Sony double downed on it.

How is it a downgrade?

Nevermind my comment, I see where you meant to say battery instead of camera. I am not sure if I necessarily believe the battery image as it looks like some weird chalkboard type image that just says OnePlus 5 3300 mAh battery. It may be true, but the leaks have been all over the place going from 3600 to 4000 to now 3300. Either way, while it may be a disappointment to some people, it's luckily not that much less than the previous generation and the 835 processor is supposed to be more efficient than the 821 was, so it may end up resulting in similar battery life results.

I didn't know you had already compared the photos taken with the OP 5, and compared them to the 3/3T. Tell us more about the future.

Battery is quite decent, wonder what the DxO score will be.

Sorry, 3,300 isn't enough. Don't like having to charge daily, if not more often. 4,000mAH in my past two phones, 2+ days, even on moderate~heavy use.

If the phone, the chipset has a manufacture process of 10nm, certainly has a more power efficience even knowing that is a Snapdragon octo-core Kryo processor. For that the battery is enough. The standard Galaxy S8 has battery of 3000Mh, certnaily the One Plus 5 can have this battery.

If the Galaxy S8 has a bigger screen with higher resolution and has the same chipset and has a 3000mAh battery why the One Plus 5 can't carry one of 3300mAh? The Sony XZ Premium has a ultra hd screen, and has 3230 battery, why the One Plus 5 can't have this capacity of battery?

' No compromises '. Then they compromise by putting in a small battery. To really set it ahead of the competition, the OP5 should have a 3,600mAh battery at MINIMUM, preferably a 4,000mAh. But 3,300mAh is just meh. Not bad, not great, just on.

Trying to cover up the "thinnest" remark like a three-legged cat on a hardwood floor.

They probably just realised their gaffe with that "thinnest remark" bs. So they're probably now trying to justify the statement.

I prefer thicker phone either bigger battery & come on its 2017 where is wireless charging.

They make durable phones, therefore it can't have wireless charging capability. Only glass back can do that, not metal.

3300mah battery is simply a no go! I guess I will stick with my S7 for 2017. No mobile of this year is an improvement, just CPU speedbumps.

Why the majority of the people here don't reply me? Do you have some kind of problem with me? You think that i'm crazy or mad or retard? Or very clever? If you want to know, one time i said that i had a iQ of 157 to some guy of here, i don't remember well if it was to darkjedi but months later i discovered that the psychologist which did the tests to me had lied for hide my real iQ. My real iQ is 198, it blew with the scale which is until 175. Believe or not.

Your site is an authentic crap only runs well with the browsers of iOS and Mac OS. If it is browsers of Windows Desktop or Android runs sometimes slow and sometimes the browsers of Windows and Android don't respond and don't open the pages of your site. And i use Windows 10 Enterprise and browsers like Opera and Chrome, as in Windows as in Android.

You in your site you don't guess that is strange the absence of replies to me? How many times i posted in your site and didn't have any answer from anybody of that people. The people here must think that are some superior beings because they are americans and some foreigners are junk and scum to them. Only british, german, french and some asian people is who are considered people.
