Are these OnePlus 5 specs game changing, or did they drop the ball?

The OnePlus 5 is already getting a bit of flack for having a very iPhone-esque appearance, but will these specs make up for its unoriginal appearance?

According to Brazilian blog, Tecnoblog, the OnePlus 5 will feature the Snapdragon 835 SoC (system on a chip) processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of dual-band UFS 2.1 internal storage. It will also feature a powerful 3,300mAh battery cell.

It will also feature a 20MP and 16MP dual camera system with a f/2.6 and f/1.7 aperture respectively.

Like most modern phones, the OnePlus 5 features a fingerprint sensor, allegedly reading prints in just 0.2 of a second. There’s also a fast charging capability (called Dash Charge), which can bring the phone from 0 to 92% in just one hour.

The 5.5 inch screen has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, and features DCI-P3 colors, which should result in color tones being a bit more accurate than the iPhone 7.

As mentioned in previously, OnePlus has partnered with imagine benchmark gurus, DxOMark, to develop a camera that can take and post-process amazing photos.

Here is a demo of one of the photos after post-processing by the phone’s software.

All those features are being jammed into a phone that is expected to go on sale for just $479.
