The next flagship killer from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus 5 has been confirmed by the company with a launch event on June 20.
The upcoming OnePlus flagship will be launched on June 22 in India in a live event in Mumbai.
The successor to one of the most popular flagship Android devices from last year, OnePlus 3T, which has received confirmation that it will receive an Android O update upon the OS’ release.
Alongside the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has also announced ten pop-up events at different locations in Europe and USA between June 20 and 21.
Last month, the company had confirmed that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chipset.
The OnePlus 3 and 3T impressed users, and have set up a high benchmark to beat for the upcoming OnePlus 5, which the company suggests has received performance tweaks.
While the company had put great emphasis on tweaks surrounding the overall performance and design of the device, the main area that they have tried to improve is the touch latency.
“Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience. We’re driven to perfect even the smallest aspects of our products and when you get your hands on the OnePlus 5, we hope you’ll notice the difference” Pete Lau, Founder and CEO, OnePlus, said.
There has been no official confirmation on the other features, except speculations among the media and consumers about what the next beast of a device from OnePlus will sport.
There have been rumours surrounding RAM present on the device with some speculating it to be the same 6GB unit while other report speculating that it will come with a 8GB unit.
Other than that a major speculation has been of a dual-lens camera as the company has also revealed some images taken from the device on their official Twitter handle.
OnePlus also announced that they’ll be discontinuing the OnePlus 3 and 3T as soon as the current stocks end and won’t be manufacturing any more units.
