OnePlus on Tuesday officially confirmed the announcement of its OnePlus 5 will take place on June 20 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The Chinese company published a landing page on its website with details for the event, which you can watch online.
The official tag for the upcoming flagship is “Focus on What Matters,” an obvious hint at the OnePlus 5’s rumored dual camera setup. The teaser suggests one of the cameras will feature a telephoto lens, allowing users to get closer to subject without sacrificing image quality.
OnePlus has already said it’s partnering with DxO to help develop the device’s camera, samples from which we’ve seen over the past few weeks.
In addition, OnePlus has confirmed the device will feature a Snapdragon 835, while previous rumors claimed we’ll also see 6GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch QHD display, and a 3,000mAh battery. The device is also expected to look a lot like the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, which isn’t a bad thing.
With the upgraded tech, however, many people fear the OnePlus 5 may be the company’s most expensive device yet. Last year, the OnePlus 3 started at $399, but the price climbed to $439 when the OnePlus 3T hit late last year with an upgraded processor. There’s a good chance the OnePlus 5 could be $450 or higher.
To celebrate the device’s announcement, OnePlus will also hold pop-up events in several cities across Europe and in New York. You can check out OnePlus’ website to see if there will be a pop-up event near you.
