On top of the rumour train: OnePlus 5, 8GB RAM & dual cameras

After churning out flagship killers and top of the line phones, rumors are that the OnePlus 5 is on its way with a beefier SoC and a whopping 8 GB of RAM. That’s not all. The OnePlus 5 is rumored to sport a dual camera setup, something many phone manufacturers are incorporating in their devices nowadays.

The OnePlus 5 is rumored to sport Snapdragon 835, the latest in the line of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors. This means that it will have the Adreno 540 GPU, meaning smooth-as-butter graphics performance. OnePlus has followed a design strategy that has worked for them since the OnePlus One, the original flagship killer. And they have built on it to churn out really good devices.

Following the same design principle, the OnePlus 5 will likely have a 5.5 inch quad HD (2560 x 1440). Yes, you read that right, a quad HD display, making it the first OnePlus phone to feature a resolution that high. The dual camera setup is something major brands are trying to perfect with only a few succeeding in it. How OnePlus handles it, only time will tell.

Its predecessor, the OnePlus 3T remains of the best phones available in the market, courtesy of the high specs it offered at not such a premium price. It was one of the first phones to come with 6GB of RAM, beating the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6, flagships for the respective behemoths.

But why OnePlus 5 and not OnePlus 4? Well, in China, it is believed that the number four brings bad luck, and hence the exclusion of the number four by many manufacturers like Meizu.
