OnePlus 5 Has Already Crossed Half Million Pre-Registrations

OnePlus 5 is just a day away from its official launch on June 20 and a few days more from its India launch on June 22, and the upcoming flagship killer by the company seems to have caught the eyes of numerous buyers even before its launch.

The OnePlus 5 has been available for pre-order on the Chinese online marketplace Jingdong (JD.com) since June 14 and has already garnered over 540,000 pre-registrations.

At the time of writing, 544,048 people have already pre-registered the OnePlus 5 in China.

OnePlus 5 is being released to compete with flagship devices such as Samsung Galaxy S8, Google Pixel and rumoured Pixel 2 and Apple’s current and upcoming iPhone.

Since the OnePlus 3 and 3T devices received rave reviews by both the consumers and critics, it doesn’t come as a surprise that OnePlus 5 has started making news even before entering the market.

But as much as people are waiting for the new flagship killer to launch, some are discontented due to its partially unveiled form factor, which to most eyes looks like a copy of Apple’s iPhone 7.

The device has been confirmed to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor which clocks at 2.45GHz and has been tipped to come in two variants of 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB.

Other than that, from the images available online it has been also confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will sport a dual-lens setup on the rear and fingerprint sensor on the front panel.

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.

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.

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.

It has been largely speculated that the upcoming OnePlus 5 device will come in the price range of Rs.32,999 (approx $510) to Rs.37,999 ($590).
