OnePlus 5 Official Announced: The OnePlus 5 is the new flagship of the Chinese manufacturer, which is known for delivering smartphones with the latest hardware for a relatively low price. Even with this new model makes OnePlus that promise. The device can measure himself with the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone, and seven other leaders, while the price is much lower.
OnePlus is there quick, because the fifth six months hardly appears after the introduction of the OnePlus 3T. That device was, therefore, more an intermediate step. The 3T had the same design as the OnePlus 3, slightly improved hardware. The OnePlus 5 official does have a new design and the specifications are better.
For example, the single 16-megapixel camera from the previous model has been replaced by two lenses on the back. One 16-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 1.7, and an additional 20-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 2.6 that collects additional information. When taking pictures, the images from both cameras are merged, resulting in sharper images and a unique bokeh effect. That is similar to the portrait mode of iPhone 7 Plus.
The front is now a 16-megapixel camera, which is also equipped with HDR support. This ensures that your backlit also can shoot still bright selfies.
