Rumored: OnePlus 5 to come with 8GB RAM, launch This Summer!

OnePlus has had a pretty good year, what with the success of its OnePlus 3 and 3T phones and some massive overhauls internally that, against all odds, led to improvements to its Oxygen OS software, with more frequent updates.

Now we’re seeing the first signs that a sequel is in the company’s future and that OnePlus is skipping the “4” name altogether and readying flagship successor, the OnePlus 5. Here’s everything we know so far.

Chinese handset-maker OnePlus’ latest flagship — the OnePlus 5 — will come with 8GB RAM.

The company that has skipped the OnePlus 4 name and is moving to the 5 post the launch of OnePlus 3T is also expected to launch the OnePlus 5 in June. Interestingly, previous rumours suggested that the phone will pack 6GB of RAM but a leaked screenshot suggests that the upcoming flagship from OnePlus will instead feature a massive 8GB of RAM.

As per a leaked screenshot from Chinese microblogging website Weibo, the 128GB storage variant of the OnePlus 5 smartphone will pack 8GB of RAM and will run Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box based on HydrogenOS (the China version of OxygenOS), as pointed out in a report by AndroidPure.

What will it cost?

Judging from the minor price bump between the OnePlus 3 and 3T, coupled with rising component costs throughout the world, the OnePlus 5 may cost somewhere between $449 and $469, which puts it creepingly close, but still far below, the flagships that it’s competing against. At $399, the OnePlus 3 was a serious contender for “amazingly cheap”; at $439, the OnePlus 3T is just “inexpensive”. A OnePlus 5 at $469 would be close to “Should I spend the extra money on another phone?” Still approachable, and maybe even affordable, but losing its pricing edge.

We’ll have lots more on the OnePlus 5 when it’s unveiled in “early summer,” which is getting here sooner than later! In the meantime, check out our OnePlus 3T coverage and let us know what you want in OnePlus’s new flagship! Hope This Helps!
