OnePlus 5- Design and display:
The company has dropped a teaser showing the top-half of the OnePlus 5's rear panel. Going by the image, we can't say the design language is a rip-off of Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. The slim body profile and the dual-camera module on the top are uncanny, but thankfully there is an improvement. There is no ugly protrusion of the camera hardware like we see in the Apple's 2016 phablet model.
On the front, it is said to have 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display having around 401 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density and would be made of super AMOLED, which is said to be more energy efficient than the power-guzzling LCD panels.
OnePlus 5- Processor, RAM and storage:
OnePlus has officially confirmed OnePlus 5 will come with Qualcomm's most powerful processor yet, Snapdragon 835 octa-core, which is said to be 27 percent faster and consumes 40 percent less energy than its predecessor Snapdragon 821. The former is based on 10nm class architecture, while the latter is 14nm.
The powerful Snapdragon 835 CPU has four 2.45GHz Kryo 280 cores and four 1.9GHz Kryo 280 cores, while the Snapdragon comes with two 2.35GHz Kryo cores and two 1.6GHz Kryo cores.
