OnePlus 5: everything we know so far


In this post, which will be updated regularly, we take a closer look at the latest rumors surrounding the upcoming OnePlus 5.

The OnePlus 3T was one of the best budget smartphones of 2016. The device offers high-end specs and is a lot more affordable when compared with rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, LG G5, and others. The Chinese manufacturer will again use the same strategy this year for its upcoming flagship, likely to be called the OnePlus 5. We once again expect to see a high-end smartphone that will go head to head with the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 but will retail for a lot less.

We have rounded up all the latest rumors regarding the OnePlus 5 in this post, so you can get a better idea of what the device will offer specs-wise, what it will look like, when will it be announced, and how much will it retail for. You’ll find all this information and more down below.

However, do keep in mind that these are just rumors for now, so take them with a grain of salt. OnePlus hasn’t confirmed (almost) any of them and probably won’t share many specific details about its flagship before the official reveal.

Five OnePlus 5 features we’d like to see

4 weeks ago

OnePlus 5: name

Back in June 2016, the OnePlus 3 was announced, followed by the slightly upgraded 3T in November. Therefore, it would make sense that the next flagship would be called the OnePlus 4. It looks like that won’t happen, as the company is expected to skip the number four and call the smartphone the OnePlus 5.

The reason for this is twofold. For starters, the number four is considered to be unlucky in China due to its association with death. But OnePlus also told The Verge that a lot of its staffers are fans of former NBA basketballer Robert Horry, whose jersey number was five. Regardless of the reasoning, OnePlus will just jump straight to number five for its fifth phone release, despite the fact it might confuse a lot of consumers who live in the West.

Note: OnePlus isn’t the only Chinese company that avoids the number four. Vivo, for example, also isn’t its biggest fan and normally skips it when naming devices too.

OnePlus 5: release date

The release date of the OnePlus 5 is kind of hard to pinpoint because the company hasn’t stuck to a traditional annual release schedule. The OnePlus 1 launched in April 2016, the OnePlus 2 in July 2015, and the OnePlus 3 in June, which was then followed by the 3T in November.

Although there’s no word on exactly when the device will be revealed, we do know that it is coming sometime this summer, as OnePlus has recently confirmed this to The Verge. Our best guess is that the flagship will be announced at the end of June or in July.

The good news is that you won’t have to wait for long to get your hands on the smartphone after its official reveal. The OnePlus 3, for example, went on sale in the US and Europe on the day of its announcement. Things were a little bit different for the 3T but not by much, as those in the US were able to order it exactly one week after its reveal, while European consumers had to wait for a few more days.

OnePlus 5: specs

The OnePlus 5 will be a flagship device, meaning that it will offer high-end specs and go head to head with the best smartphones on the market. Just like its predecessor, it is expected to feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with either Full HD or QHD resolution, which some reports claim might be curved on the sides. It will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset that is also found in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Xiaomi Mi 6.

According to a post published on the Chinese social network Weibo by Kumamoto Technology, the device will offer 6 GB or RAM and 128 GB of storage. However, we just might see another version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of space, which could be launched at a later date.

The post also mentions a fingerprint scanner located on the front and a larger 3,600 mAh battery. For comparison reasons, the battery found in the OnePlus 3T has a capacity of 3,400 mAh. It will obviously support the company’s Dash Charge technology, which will likely be even better this year. The flagship is expected to get fully charged a lot faster (by 25 percent) when compared to its predecessor.

Keeping up with the latest trends, the OnePlus 5 is also expected to feature a dual-camera setup on the back, just like the Huawei P10, LG G6, and a few other devices. Kumamoto Technology claims that the two cameras will be positioned horizontally, and not vertically as previously rumored.

An important question regarding the OnePlus 5 remains unanswered at this point, which is whether or not it will have a headphone jack. Our best guess is that OnePlus won’t decide to ditch it, as it is still very important for the majority of users. Carl Pei, who is one of the co-founders of the company, actually conducted a poll on Twitter on this topic a while back. As you can see below, most of the participants (88 percent) think that the headphone jack is still a valuable part of a smartphone.

When it comes to software, the OnePlus 5 will run the latest and greatest Android Nougat with the OxygenOS skin on top. It doesn’t change the look and feel of Android too much but does add a bunch of customization options as well as “Shelf”, which offers quick access to recent contacts, and frequently used apps, among other things.

OnePlus 5: design

Unfortunately, we don’t have a ton of info to share with you when it comes to the design of the OnePlus 5. We have only come across one alleged image of the device so far, which was posted online by India Today. It only shows the back of the smartphone, revealing the dual-camera setup, a metal body, and a slightly curved back.

However, we have our doubts about the authenticity of the photo. Some things just don’t add up, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

Just like its predecessors, the OnePlus 5 is expected to have a very simple design that doesn’t stand out from the crowd too much. Some rumors claim that it will feature a metal body and look quite similar to the OnePlus 3T, while others say that the company will opt for a glass design this year.

Those of you hoping that the device will have a bezel-less design like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 will probably be disappointed. As already mentioned in the specs section above, the flagship will have a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, which does require a certain amount of space below the screen. The manufacturing costs of that kind of display may well be out of OnePlus’ profit margins too.

There’s a good chance that the OnePlus won’t be much different when compared to its predecessor based on the fact that the design of the 3T was quite well received among consumers. However, we do expect to see at least some changes along with a new color option or two. Nothing has been confirmed yet, so we’ll have to wait for the official reveal to see whether or not this is true.

OnePlus 5: price

One of the main reasons OnePlus devices are so popular among consumers is because they offer great bang for your buck. However, it is worth pointing out that the company has been increasing prices with each new model. The OnePlus 1 started at $ 299, its successor retailed for $ 329, while the OnePlus 3 was available for $ 399. The current flagship, the 3T, is the most expensive OnePlus device to date with a starting price of $ 439.

So it’s quite possible that the OnePlus 5 will be more expensive than its predecessor, although it’s hard to say how much exactly. Our best guess is that it won’t retail for more than $ 500 and even that would depend on things like whether or not it features a dual camera. There’s still a chance that it will carry the same price tag as the 3T, which is something I’m sure consumers would welcome with open arms, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.


These are all the rumors regarding the OnePlus 5 we have come across so far. We’ll update this page as soon as we hear more.

Meanwhile, do let us know what you think about the upcoming smartphone. Would you consider buying it even if it will be more expensive than its predecessor? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.

OnePlus 3T can now be purchased directly from OnePlus in India


For the last two years, OnePlus has been selling its devices exclusively on Amazon in India. That has now changed, as you’re also able to buy the OnePlus 3T on the company’s own online store. The price of the device remains the same, meaning you’ll have to dish out Rs. 29,999 for the 64GB model, while the 128GB version will set you back Rs. 34,999.

However, to kick off the launch of its online store in India, OnePlus is offering a free protective case to customers who order the 3T.

OnePlus 3 and 3T Google Play Store bug fixed with OxygenOS 4.0.2 update


OnePlus continues to update OxygenOS for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, after launching the big 4.0 version that introduced Android Nougat to those devices a few weeks ago. Today, the company is rolling out OxygenOS 4.0.2, which fixes a small, but important, issue on both phones.

According to the changelog, the 4.0.2 update fixes a download bug with the Google Play Store. Obviously, if some OnePlus 3 and 3T owners were not able to download apps correctly, this could be a bit of a problem. Hopefully this OxygenOS update will deal with this issue. The changelog also notes some more stability improvements with this release.

OnePlus also says that some people might still be experiencing some Wi-Fi connectivity problems with this update. If you happen to be one of those folks, you can send a private message to the company to report on this issue via its forums.

As with previous updates for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, this latest version of OxygenOS is being rolled out to a small section of those phones, before it is released to a wider number of the devices in the near future. You can go into the phone’s settings to select “About phone”, and then “Software updates”, to see if your OnePlus 3 or 3T can snag OxygenOS 4.0.2.

OnePlus 3 exchange offer in India can get you a discount of up to 100%


oneplus 3 gold aa (12 of 22)
Taking a leaf out of the multitude of exchange offers available for Indian smartphone buyers across sales on Amazon India, Flipkart, and other e-commerce platforms, Chinese upstart OnePlus has also jumped on the exchange bandwagon. The company has announced an upgrade program which will allow you to turn in your old smartphone for the newly-launched OnePlus 3 and get a discount of as much as 100%.

With the OnePlus 3, the Chinese smartphone maker has certainly come a long way since the launch of their first smartphone, the OnePlus One, back in 2014. Its powerful features like the massive 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB ROM, and the quick charging ‘Dash Charge’ technology ensure that the OnePlus 3 still gets to give other more expensive flagships a run for their money.

oneplus 3 gold aa (14 of 22)

It’s now also much easier to get your hands on the OnePlus 3 because you no longer need an invite, unlike in the case of its predecessors. After being recently launched in India, the OnePlus 3 became available for purchase exclusively on Amazon India where it currently sells for Rs 27,999 (~$ 420).

If paying a midrange price for a flagship device still doesn’t appeal to you, OnePlus is now sweetening the deal by offering an exchange program so that you can swap your old smartphone and upgrade to the new OnePlus 3. Starting today, you can return any old smartphone and get a discount of up to 100% of the value of OnePlus 3. The exact amount of the cashback will depend upon the condition of your old smartphone, which will be evaluated and approved by the company’s program partner, Cashify.

oneplus 3 review aa-5

If you want to upgrade to the OnePlus 3 using the exchange offer, you’ll first need to visit Cashify’s webpage to check the replacement value of your old smartphone. Next, you’ll have to purchase the OnePlus 3 from Amazon India and take down the order ID. Finally, you can accept the T&C on Amazon India, after which you’ll be redirected to the Cashify page where you’ll have to input key details of your old smartphone, check your pin code serviceability, and confirm the buyback price and pickup time for your device.

A Cashify representative will then visit you at your submitted address, and pay for your old smartphone after examining the condition of the device. The upgrade offer is available in selected Indian cities of Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Pune, Faridabad, Bangalore, Ghaziabad, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Lucknow, and Ahmedabad.

The exchange offer could be a sign that OnePlus is feeling the heat from other Chinese manufacturers in the Indian market, with budget-conscious Indian consumers warming up to smartphones from OEMs like Xiaomi, Lenovo, OPPO, Vivo, Huawei, Gionee, and LeEco. Even as Chinese smartphone companies slug it out in the Indian market by throwing in more offers and discounts, Indian consumers are obviously happy to get a bigger bang for their buck.

OnePlus teases “beauty in the making”


oneplus-beauty

OnePlus is not one to stay quiet about its upcoming smartphones and teasers for something “beautiful” have begun showing up today. The image, which was shared both through Facebook and Twitter, simply shows what seems like either creased paper or some kind of powdery material. Regardless of what the photo displays, though, OnePlus claims it represents “beauty in the making”, and goes as far as using the hashtag #PowerfullyBeautiful.

Needless to say there is not much we are getting out of this ad, but we have previously heard of a second 2015 OnePlus handset coming. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei mentioned this mysterious gadget wouldn’t be like previous handsets the Chinese startup has built. Instead of focusing on high-end specs and power, this rumored device is to have a high emphasis on design, a statement which happens to go right in line with today’s teaser.

“I think its going to be a phone catering to a different type of audience. Perhaps for those who appreciate design over specs.” -Carl Pei, Co-Founder at OnePlus

OnePlus CEO Carl Pei

The rumors!

Rumors say OnePlus is working on a “Mini” smartphone. The smaller device is rumored to feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter and a 3000-3100 mAh battery.

But all of that is irrelevant to those who OnePlus is targeting with this handset. As already mentioned, what matters is the aesthetics – so what is it that will make the OnePlus Mini (or whatever device they announce) stand out? We know nothing but rumors so far, but if the OnePlus Mini happens to be real and the rumors prove to be true, it will all be about customization.

While the phone is said to be built of plastic, the true lure is that the company might also sell accessories that change the colors and styles of the phone. Something like what others have been doing with removable back covers, we suppose.

Conclusion

Don’t you worry, guys. The hype train has just taken off and you can be sure more teasers will be coming soon. This is OnePlus, after all! What do you guys think about the idea of a good-looking phone that has lesser specs, though? Is that something you would be interested in? By the way – judging by the rumored specs, the phone might not be a weakling either!

OnePlus 2 – New Features Focus


The OnePlus One, while being a high-end smartphone, didn’t come with a whole lot of bells and whistles, which wasn’t really an issue, given how budget-friendly the device was. The affordability factor continues with its successor, the OnePlus 2, but the latest flagship offering from OnePlus does manage to pack a few extras in both hardware and software. Here is a look at some of the new features of the OnePlus 2!

Alert slider

oneplus 2 launch aa (12 of 93)

Starting with the alert slider, this is one of the main additions to the OnePlus 2 seen on the left side of the device. It is a three stage slider that allows you to toggle among the different notification settings in Android 5.1 Lollipop, and have the slider set to allow all notifications, priority notifications, or no notifications, with the last one essentially used to silence the phone. Moving between the three stages is now actually become very simple, and with the ridged design on the button, it is very easy to locate, for example when the phone is in your pocket.

Fingerprint sensor

The other very obvious addition to the OnePlus 2 that is seen on the front of the phone is the fingerprint sensor below the display. This area also doubles as the home button, but it has to mentioned that this isn’t a tactile home button with an integrated scanner as seen on Samsung flagships, but rather a capacitive area that has been marked out to house the actual reader itself. This is also of the touch type variety, which is certainly the better implementation compared to the swipe variant, and setting it up is simple, requiring multiple touches until the scanner gets all the information. You can also save up to 5 fingerprints at a time.

oneplus 2 unboxing initial setup aa (29 of 32)

You can wake and unlock the device using the fingerprint scanner, but the slight issue that comes up is when using it as a home button is that it isn’t as sensitive as you might want it to be. When using it as a fingerprint reader, you do have to cover the entire area with your finger and put a little bit of pressure, which makes sense, but that is also required when using it as a home button. This is not really an issue but rather something that will take some getting used, and you of course, do have the option to opt for on-screen navigation keys as well.

Dual-SIM capabilities

oneplus 2 vs oneplus one aa (17 of 27)

This next feature may not be a big deal in the west, but is a welcome inclusion for users in emerging markets, and that is dual-SIM capabilities. In the US, dual SIMs isn’t a particularly necessary feature given the current network carrier landscape and the fact that it is quite expensive to have just one connection, but it can prove to be useful for some. With a dual SIM phone, you can use the data from card and take calls on another, and really cater the experience to the way you want it to be, and it can also be useful for the frequent traveler, who can avoid having to switch out SIM cards every time.

oneplus 2 unboxing initial setup aa (23 of 32)

That said, I did find that switching between the two SIM cards can be quite cumbersome. Having to change which data you want to use from which card can sometimes make the phone slow down, it does take a while for the cards to register, before you can switch between the two. Whether this is a software issue, or if this is just how it’s going to work on the OnePlus 2 remains to be seen, but there are other dual-SIM devices out there that do work better.

USB Type-C

oneplus 2 unboxing initial setup aa (11 of 32)

The USB cable it comes in a very similar construction to what we got with the OnePlus, with its flat, tangle-free design and red and white color scheme. The best part about this chord is that it is reversible on either end, so no matter what orientation you plug it into the phone or the USB port, it’ll work, which is fantastic, and takes the guess work out of finding the right way.

oneplus 2 unboxing initial setup aa (17 of 32)

The port is of the USB 2.0 variety though, so you won’t be able to take advantage of fast data transfer speeds, along with the fact that the OnePlus 2 doesn’t offer any fast-charging capabilities. USB Type-C charging does seem to be a little above average, with the device charging fully in 90 minutes when the phone is off, and in up to 2 hours when on and with minimal usage. While not too bad, this isn’t nearly close to the less than hour standard set by some devices with quick charging out there. Other than the cable included in the box, they can also be picked up separately for around $ 5.

Shelf

oneplus 2 launch aa (92 of 93)

At first glance, Shelf seemed to essentially be just two widgets, with one housing your most frequently used applications, and the other featuring a list of favorite contacts. It’s great to see that this isn’t the case though, with Shelf functioning as a page where you can add a number of different widgets, apart from the two that are already available, giving you an easy, single point of access for all your widgets. Other small changes that can be made is changing the cover at the top and the re-arranging of the order of the widgets. Basically, it isn’t just a place for the phone to put your favorite apps and contacts in a quickly accessible area, but also lets you put your most used widgets there, allowing you to keep your homescreens clutter free.

Dark mode

oneplus 2 aa (11 of 13)

Dark mode is a feature that is expected to be a part of the upcoming Android M release, but OnePlus has been able to put it into their latest 2.0 version of the Oxygen OS. The idea behind dark mode is to just take all of the light elements and make them dark, to make things easier to view in certain situations, such as when your in bed with the lights off and are looking at the phone. The white background and other elements can be very jarring at that time, and that is where dark mode makes a huge difference. Dark mode can also be contextualized in certain applications, automatically changing the in-app elements as well, but this isn’t a functionality that is available across all apps just yet.

So there you have it for this quick look at some of the new features available with the OnePlus 2! Stay tuned with Android Authority for other great coverage of the OnePlus 2, including a camera shootout, the full in-depth review, and a lot more.

OnePlus One will continue to receive Cyanogen OTA updates in India


oneplus one unboxing (24 of 29)

OnePlus has certainly had a difficult time selling its flagship One handset in India over the past few months. If you can recall back to October, Cyanogen made an exclusive agreement with Micromax, preventing any other company from selling Cyanogen-powered devices in India, including OnePlus. Cyanogen had a global licensing deal with OnePlus, but the Micromax deal took precedence over it. Then in December, the ban was lifted, and OnePlus was, once again, able to sell the One in India.

It looks like all legal troubles between these companies have finally subsided, because today, OnePlus announced that OnePlus One owners in India who are running Cyanogen OS will continue to receive OTA updates from here on out. The company explains:

…we are happy to confirm today that all legal proceedings have been resolved and the cases have been withdrawn through mutual consent. We hate donning suits and ties anyways. To make things sweeter, we would like to re-assure our customers and fans in India that our flagship phone, the “OnePlus One” will continue to receive OTA updates from Cyanogen in-line with our users in markets around the world.

OnePlus has also recently created its own Android-based ROM, OxygenOS. The OS replacement provides a stable, customizable experience for users looking for an alternative to Cyanogen.

OnePlus hired the key people behind Paranoid Android


oneplus oxygenos team

OnePlus kind of let us believe it would show us at least a preview of its new OxygenOS today, but instead we’ve got news on who is going to develop the new OS – some of the leading figures behind Paranoid Android.

Paranoid Android is the most popular custom ROM project outside CyanogenMod. Offering stability and some unique features on top of a stock-like experience, PA secured tens of thousands of followers. Now some of the lead developers and designers behind it will be working for OnePlus to make OxygenOS.

Among the PA team members mentioned by OnePlus in a blog post are Aaron Gascoine (co-founder of PA, technical lead), Arz Bathia (UI/UX lead), Carlo Savignano, Hieu Nguyen, Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo, and Yamil Ghazi. Besides these PA people, OnePlus purportedly has another 50 engineers dedicated to the project.

oneplus oxygenos logo

OnePlus also talked about the motivation behind the project (getting away from CyanogenMod is not mentioned, of course):

By doing so, we can offer better localization and faster updates. We can directly implement user feedback and make it easy for the OnePlus community to shape our ROM and create the OS that they want to use. Integration between hardware, software, and the cloud will become more seamless and unified for everyone using a OnePlus device. By creating our own software, we’re better able to work directly with our users to improve our OS. It’s something we’ve become quite fond of saying: when we work together, amazing things happen.

It’s not clear for now what will happen to the Paranoid Android project – will the PA team enrolled by OnePlus still contribute to the project? Also unclear is whether OnePlus plans to incorporate some of the features developed for PA into Oxygen OS.

We’re looking for more details –  meanwhile, tell us your opinion on this development.
