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.
