After weeks of teasers and leaks, the OnePlus 5 today made its official debut.

The OnePlus 5 features a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display and a 16-megapixel camera above that display. Around on the back of the phone is one of the most notable features of the OnePlus 5, its dual rear camera setup. Inside the OP5’s dual rear camera setup is the main 16-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX398 sensor and f/1.7 aperture as well as a 20-megapixel telephoto lens with a Sony IMX350 sensor and f/2.6 aperture.

OnePlus is also packing several photo-centric software features into the OnePlus 5 to utilize the phone’s dual rear camera setup. These include faster autofocus, Smart Capture for reducing noise and improved HDR, a 2x zoom using the telephoto lens, and Portrait Mode for adding depth of field (aka bokeh) to your photos. There’s also a Pro Mode included with the OP5 that’ll give you control over ISO, white balance, shutter speed, a manual focus, a Histogram, and support for shooting in RAW.

Moving inside the OnePlus 5’s metal body, we find a Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 6/8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 64/128GB of storage, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.0. There’s a 3300mAh battery powering the OnePlus 5, and when it’s time to recharge, OnePlus says that its Dash Charge feature will give you “a day’s power in half an hour.” The OnePlus 5 charges over USB-C, and right next to that USB-C port is a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Rounding out the OnePlus 5’s feature set is a fingerprint reader below the display and OxygenOS based on Android Nougat. With its custom OxygenOS UI, OnePlus has included a Reader Mode that’ll adjust the color temperature of the OP5’s display and make long reading sessions easier on your eyes. Also included is a scrolling screenshots feature that’ll let you capture screenshots that includes more than just fits onto your display at once.

When it comes to network connectivity, the OnePlus 5 includes support for LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 34, 38, 39, 40, 41, and 66. Also included is UMTS bands 1, 2, 4, 5, and 8, CDMA EVDO BC0, and GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900. OnePlus says that the OP5 includes 3CA and 256 QAM for downloads as well as CA and 64 QAM for uploads.

I’ve reached out to OnePlus about the OnePlus 5’s support for T-Mobile network features and will update this post when I get a response.

The OnePlus 5 will cost $479 USD for the 6GB/64GB model in Slate Gray and $539 USD for the 8GB/128GB version in Midnight Black. The OP5 will launch on June 27th, but you can order one today by going to this webpage and entering the code “Clearer Photos”.

So now that it’s official, what do you think of the OnePlus 5? Are you thinking about making it your next daily driver?

    Wish it could have wifi calling support from T-MOBILE

    • Fernando N.

      Wouldn’t the Digits app works as a “pseudo” wifi calling app with your own number ?

      • Bryan Pizzuti

        Doesn’t the DIGITS app not like to be installed on the same phone as th SIM with the phone number it’s using?

    • gmo8492

      It would be a very dumb decision not to since the OnePlus 3 and 3T support wifi calling.

    Wish I could Jump On Demand! to it!

  • Bryan Pizzuti

    Ordered one, will let you know about WiFi calling and VoLTE

    I feel like as the Oneplus phones creep up in price that their shortcomings become more noticeable. I have the Oneplus One (still going strong after 2 1/2 years) and while not perfect it was a pretty good deal for $300. With the constant discounts that can be found on the S8 the OP5 is in the same price range, and doesn’t seem like quite the deal anymore. I don’t think it has waterproofing, the screen isn’t as good as the S8, and you are pretty much on an island when it comes to device support. I really wanted to like this phone, but feel like it comes up short of my expectations.

      I’m with ya brother. I watched the presentation and I think it’s all well and good that you care about your customer base but truth be told is. In order to get the total package of a phone you have to spend the big money for it.

      I think it’s a great alternative for those who just need a phone that works (Rip Nexus phones) but for most consumers…they want support and reliability. And you can’t always give that without Big Company resources.

        Cough Axon 7, cough. Better audio, better screen, cheaper….

    • HeatFan786

      All about compromises. Do you want a better screen, stronger camera software/hardware, and water resistance? Or would you rather have cleaner software, more RAM, less bloatware, dash charging, and to get Android O quicker?

      As a S8 owner, the honeymoon period is over because the regular S8’s battery life is outstandingly mediocre plus it also has some lag here and there.

      • itguy08

        I wouldn’t want the low res screen and proprietary fast charge.

        • HeatFan786

          Some people would because not everyone wants a QHD screen. iPhone 7+ owners have both a low res screen and a proprietary charger. Fast charging could be included in the iPhone 8.

  • Kevin

    haha we all feel the necessity to mention 3.5mm headphone jack as a phone feature.

  • AA-Ron

    My friends one plus three has a known bug. No carrier aggregation, so he gets horrible speeds wherever he goes. Where I get 20 mbos, he’s been getting 3 or 4. No support from one plus.

  • gg555

    Worth noting that there’s no band 71 support, which T-Mobile will be rolling out soon. So the phone will quickly become incompatible with the network in that respect.

    Also, that usb-c port is usb 2.0. Yep. I just don’t think there’s any excuse on a phone anymore for not having usb 3.0.

    I’ll wait on the V30 if I replace my V20.
