OnePlus 5 Could Be the Second-Cheapest Snapdragon 835-Powered Smartphone, According to Pricing Details Leak
OnePlus 5 has popped up on another online website but this time, we have obtained more information in regards to how much the price/performance flagship could cost the public. Previously, the phone’s hardware specifications landed up on GearBest and now on Geekbuying, with details revealing that the handset could be the second-cheapest Android smartphone that sports a Snapdragon 835.
OnePlus 5 Will Be More Expensive Than Xiaomi’s Mi6 – $449.99 Retail Price Listed on Online Website
As tech companies mature, they occasionally learn from their mistake and implement better features inside their handsets while demand a higher price tag should the consumer wish to upgrade their handset for the sake of experiencing better features. The OnePlus 5 is expected to cost the user $449.99, according to the pricing details listed on Geekbuying.
In comparison, OnePlus 3 retailed for $399, meaning that the upcoming mobile offering could feature additional upgrades that were not present in the company’s 2016 crown jewel.
This could include a metal and glass chassis, which will not only upgrade the overall aesthetics of the device, but also allow the company to incorporate support for wireless charging, all the while turning it into a fingerprint magnet. Though the company’s proprietary Dash Charge technology could be heavily improved to rapidly charge the smartphone in a small time window, having support for wireless charging is also a welcome feature in this day and age of mobile computing.
Other additions could also include an AMOLED panel paired with a QHD resolution and a battery capacity of 4,000mAh. Previous rumors have claimed that the OnePlus 5 will be relatively thin meaning that the handset might not feature a large battery capacity.
However, here’s a reminder that both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T feature the same level of thickness, but the latter sports a much larger 3,400mAh cell. If the company is able to accomplish this then we see no reason why it will be difficult to carry out this as well.
Would you upgrade to the latest and greatest OnePlus 5 if it comes with a sub-$500 price tag? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
