OnePlus 5 With 8GB Of RAM Appears On Retailers Website

OnePlus 2 Smartphone Product Shoot

OnePlus 2 Smartphone Product Shoot

The OnePlus 5 is in the making, and from all that has leaked online of the upcoming handset, Samsung should have enough reasons to be anxious for its current flagship, the Galaxy S8.

The OnePlus 5 will not have a almost bezel-less display like Galaxy S8's Infinity screen. In other news pertaining to the OnePlus 5, the phone was listed on the AnTuTu benchmark website which revealed the same list of specs that have generally been bandied about lately. That coupled to an 8 GB memory should automatically translate to butter smooth operations. Perhaps OnePlus is considering multiple versions of the OnePlus 5? With this important part still out of the picture, it can't easily be said that it will, indeed, attempt to blow the Galaxy S8 away and its powerful Adreno 540 for VR gaming.

Without getting entangled into the tech mess, a higher score simply translates to better performance.

These benchmarks don't tell us anything we don't already know, but instead serve to confirm (and sometimes challenge) specification lists that have previously leaked out.

The OnePlus 5's announcement is right around the corner, and several new renders of the device have just surfaced. The listing reveals that it will boast a Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which contradicts previous rumours predicting a Quad HD display for the upcoming flagship device. Additionally, the handset is expected to be preinstalled with an Android Nougat operating system (7.1.1) alongside OnePlus' Oxygen OS. Rumor also has it that the Chinese start-up is also working on a radical re-design of the handset that will ensure the display makes up the most of the handset's front.

Regarding the availability, a summer launch doesn't necessarily mean next month (June).
