OnePlus 5 will have 8GB of RAM according to new leak


This comes directly from master-leakster Evan Blass, who posted earlier on his Twitter account a part of the source code he found on the OnePlus 5 Amazon India landing page.

As you can see the part of the source code says:

“OnePlus 5 powered by 2.35GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM will release on 22 June 2017 as an exclusive at Amazon.in.”

So far there are just a handful of phones equipped with 8GB of RAM, like the Asus Zenfone AR, the newly announced ZTE Nubia Z17 and UMIDIGI’s Z1 Pro model that’s expected to hit stores in the coming weeks.

So we could expect the OnePlus 5 to be available in two variants with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, if what we just read is true. What’s interesting however is that after this discovery by Evan Blass, Amazon removed that part from the source code.

The OnePlus 5 is scheduled to be unveiled officially on June 20, so we’ll just have to wait a few more days to find out ourselves.

    So the reason for the huge bump in the price, is that they will start to sell it via Amazon…bad move…

      They’re talking about Amazon India, where OnePlus have been selling phones since quite a while.

    Only niche users want or need 8 GB of RAM, while the vast majority will never have any use for more than 4 GB, certainly not me anyway. I am actually completely happy with 3 GB of RAM. This is a reason not to buy. I hate paying for features I don’t want or need. The main reason many people might buy a phone with 8 GB of RAM is that we are all hooked on more/bigger is better – which is why the latest model of a particular car is generally bigger than the vehicle it replaced from last year.

    8GB will open new doors for emulation. Great news.

    The only thing we need now is big internal storage (128GB+) to store all the apps and games that’s getting bigger and bigger over time.
