We finally have information about the OnePlus 5’s arrival in the Philippines. Based on the word from Digital Walker, it looks like the “flagship killer” will still beat the competition thanks to its price to performance ratio.
Just for a quick rundown, the new OnePlus 5 is the first device from the company to have a dual-camera setup at the back. There’s a 16-megapixel shooter that’s covered by a wide-angle lens and a 20-megapixel telephoto sensor for optical zoom function.
But other than that, this is also the first OnePlus device to look almost exactly like the iPhone 7. The resemblance can be easily distinguished just from the first official teaser photo that they released.
But going back, the OnePlus 5 has pretty much all of the specs and features you’ll expect to a high-end smartphone. It might not have a 1440p panel, but the 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED 1080p panel is still pretty nonetheless.
It also has the latest and fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, backed with a generous 6GB or 8GB RAM options. You can also rig it with either a 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 2-LANE internal storage.
