The teaser image suggests a new color variant for the OnePlus 5. As far as the color options are concerned, we had recently seen a listing on TENAA which suggested that the OnePlus 5 will come in the standard Soft Gold color same as the OnePlus 3/T. Now, the company has teased for a new color option so we should expect to see the new color option most likely being the Soft Gold color. Talking about the new color option, we should only expect to see a new coat of paint for the device and the internals of the device are likely to remain the same.
Talking about the OnePlus 5, the device comes with a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. The device comes with either 6GB RAM or 8GB RAM variants. The main feature on the device is a dual camera setup on the rear which is a 16MP+20MP snapper whereas the front houses a 16MP selfie camera. The device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat based on OxygenOS 4.5 and has a battery capacity of 3,300mAh. The OnePlus 5 supports the company’s proprietary Dash Charge fast charging technology which charges the device from 0% to 60% in just 30 minutes.
