OnePlus 3T vs Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017): A Showdown

13 May 2017

Interestingly, similar to what we saw on OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus is likely to go with a front-facing fingerprint scanner at the front.

Previously, it was reported by India Today that the smartphone will be called OnePlus 5 instead of OnePlus 4.

Trading glass for ceramic in the OnePlus 5 would not only offer increased durability but the material will also allow signals to pass through on the sensors. The screenshot shows the OnePlus 5 scored 1963 in single-core and 6687 score in multi-core on the test.

That's pretty much toe-to-toe with the Galaxy S8 got when it comes to single-core performance, 1978.

Software-wise, OnePlus 5 is expected to join Xiaomi Mi 6 in shipping with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, but the Galaxy S8 only manages the original v7.0. It also confirmed that OnePlus is working to officially make the first-ever public appearance of its newest device this summer. Should it stick close to OnePlus's taste for high-end flagship hardware, chances are the OnePlus 5 might just get Qualcomm's next-generation Snapdragon 835 processor.

The Conservatives finished as the largest party on six councils, and were joint largest alongside the SNP in Stirling. And now the Tories have older people in their sights too - as they gear up to end the pensions triple lock.

A physical button, dubbed in the sketches as a notification slider, was also included in the leaked OnePlus 5 designs.

However, there's also some chatter that the OnePlus 5 will include a dual-camera set-up on the rear, akin to the iPhone 7 Plus, Huawei P10 and LG G6.

This is not the OnePlus 4 since the number four is bad luck in the company's home country of China. However, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei posted a few photos to Instagram teasing a phone with horizontal dual cameras. OnePlus jumped onto the 6GB RAM bandwagon with last year's model and this year, it could keep the same module or up it to 8GB, at least according to some rumors.

However, these might not necessarily all be available at launch.

Expect to hear more soon ahead of the official OnePlus 5 launch. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more information on the upcoming OnePlus flagship. However, reports believe the OnePlus 5 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and possible be water-resistant. Keeping the lights on is a 3580mAh battery that will recharge 30% faster with Dash Charge than the juicer on the OnePlus 3T.
