Finally OnePlus Confirms that the OnePlus 5 Will be Powered by Snapdragon 835 Chipset

The entire world is looking for next OnePlus flagship phone which is the OnePlus 5 to release at the earliest, but one has to wait until this summer to get hands on it. And leaks about the phone are keeping you at bay, especially about the rear camera placement. 


The phone is said to come with a dual camera at the rear. Instead of giving its word on the camera setup, OnePlus has officially confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will come with Snapdragon 835 chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM. The RAM is based on various leaks. But OnePlus has confirmed that Snapdragon 835 thing though. 

Other details of the phone is still under the wraps. Qualcomm also said that the OnePlus 5 is coming soon. The device might be unveiled in mid-June. OnePlus is also tweaking the Oxygen OS to deliver superior performance with the OnePlus 5.  


"With the OnePlus 5, our commitment to this philosophy continues. We're proud to announce the OnePlus 5 will feature the Snapdragon™ 835 processor, which sets the foundation for smooth, powerful, and efficient performance. With graphically-demanding apps, for example, you'll notice how fast they load and how well they run," OnePlus said in its forums page.

OnePlus Converts 45,000 Telephone Boxes in the UK to Dash Charge Stations as a Part of Advertising


Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is always known for its unique marketing strategies. Time by time, the company has impressed the audience with its marketing, and now, the vendor has come up with a unique marketing strategy in the UK.

Although, it may be a marketing from OnePlus, but the new campaign will be helpful for the OnePlus smartphone owners in the country. Here's what the new campaign all about- OnePlus has added its Dash Charge technology to power the OnePlus smartphone users to the telephone boxes in the UK. 

There are over 45,000 telephone boxes in the UK, and OnePlus is converting each of it to a charging spot. Further, a user can adopt a telephone box for just 1 Euro. OnePlus says that the telephone boxes are connected to the National Grid, so there's no problem of power cut whatsoever. 

With this new campaign, OnePlus is providing a free source of ultrafast charging for users across the UK. Another great initiative from OnePlus, nevertheless.

It's confusing and irritating. That's all we can say about the leaks about OnePlus 5. We have already seen multiple leaked images of the OnePlus 5 and all of them looks completely different from each other. However, it seems that OnePlus has officially confirmed the final leaked design of their upcoming flagship.

In this facebook post (which was clearly not meant to have gone out yet), OnePlus Denmark officially shares the previously leaked OnePlus 5's prototype link.

Recently, we got an official news from OnePlus about the OnePlus 5. A staff member of OnePlus in OnePlus forums has said that the OnePlus 5's camera will be built in collaboration with the camera authority-DxO. OnePlus is all set to launch the device this summer.

It's not that we haven't seen real-life images of the upcoming OnePlus 5, but a new leak has surfaced that probably gives you the another view of the flagship's rear.

We previously covered a leak by AndroidAuthority where the dual camera setup and antenna lines was clearly shown however this new leak has a very different story to tell. The below image shows that there are no antenna lines and the flash is now located between the dual camera lens.

There has been a lot of confusion about the camera setup on OnePlus 5. The confusion was all about the camera design of the phone, but not the implementation. OnePlus 5 may get two camera sensors at the back, which may be the same setup as the iPhone 7 Plus. One sensor will capture standard shots, while the other sensor will capture zoomed shots.

Two Concept Renders of the OnePlus 5 Suggesting Horizontally Placed Rear Camera Surfaced Online

Two Concept Renders of the OnePlus 5 Suggesting Horizontally Placed Rear Camera Surfaced Online
Amidst the Motorola smartphone leaks, the internet is completely dominated by the upcoming flagship killer, the OnePlus 5. Earlier today, it was spotted on the AnTuTu benchmarking site revealing key specs of the phone. And now, two new renders of the phone are posted online which allegedly shows the horizontally placed dual camera setup. 

While one render looks like a real photoshopped image, the other render shows the device's design from a Meizu smartphone. As you can see the first picture, both the camera sensors are placed in a single module, same as the iPhone 7 Plus followed by a LED flash. What made this image weird is the antenna bands running over the top. 

Speaking about the second render, the device looks like a Meizu MX6 in black colour and OnePlus logo. Nevertheless, it looks gorgeous though. The second image also looks like a photoshopped image because of the slight displacement of the LED flashlight. 

That said, the specs of the phone are all but confirmed, but the design of the phone is yet to be leaked. The phone is officially confirmed to launch this summer.

While the company has officially confirmed the name of the phone, the device has been run through the AnTuTu benchmark test. As a result, AnTuTu was able to post and confirm the specs for the handset.


From the listing we can tell you that, the OnePlus 5 will bear a model number A5000, which was rumoured earlier as well. 
The device will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset with Adreno 540 GPU. Under the hood you will find 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage. A 16MP + 16MP Dual camera setup on the rear and Android 7.0 will be pre-installed. 


OnePlus recently explained that they are not releasing the device with moniker OnePlus 4 because it is touted as death in its home land China. Several other major smartphone brands have skipped their phones with '4' number, not Xiaomi.

OnePlus One explodes while charging

OnePlus One explodes while charging
After the Note 7 fiasco, Samsung took a huge step with its batteries that might prevent fires and explosions. It's time for all manufacturers to follow Samsung and implement battery protection to their upcoming Smartphones. 


Recently a OnePlus One user reported that his device exploded while charging, causing property damage and giving him a second degree burn on his left arm. It's good to see that a OnePlus representative immediately reached out to the original poster via the forum, and the OP replied that he has submitted a support ticket.

The user has uploaded several images and a video showing severe burn marks on his several body parts. You can check the Images and Video from the below forum (Source) link (CAUTION: Images might be disturbing).

Well, my OnePlus One exploded while charging this morning. Almost set my house on fire. The explosion set pillow and blanket on fire as well as carpet....... I got second degree burn on my left arm and lucky no injury on my face..... I'm still in shock... u see the news but it's a totally different experience in real life. Support ticket submitted. I was told by online CS that a specialist will contact me soon. What should I do? Does this happen before? - Says the OnePlus forum user "slr722gts"
