OnePlus has also refreshed its Android-based operating system ‘Oxygen OS’ that now features Google Pixel-like app drawer, which can be accessed from any window now, without going back to the home screen of the device. The company has also added to the OS a reading mode that adjusts the screen temperature setting automatically. The reading mode can also be activated manually from the notification area or settings.
The OnePlus 5 is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery that supports dash charge technology introduced first with OnePlus 3 last year. The device sports a 5.5-inch full-HD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The fingerprint sensor is placed under the ceramic-coated home button and, the company claims, it could unlock the phone in 0.2 seconds. On the connectivity side, the smartphone supports 34 global network bands and, therefore, could be used across the globe. There is Bluetooth v5.0 on board and Near Field Communication (NFC) chip as well.
The OnePlus 5 is priced at $479 (base model at Rs 30,970 by today's conversion rate) in the United States and euros 499 (Rs 35,876) in Europe. The smartphone would launch in India on June 22.
