OnePlus has finally unveiled the OnePlus 5 ‘Callection’ edition with a customized back panel as well as hardware buttons and a few more things on the inside. Last week, the company teased the launch of a special edition OnePlus 5 device in collaboration with French artist Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
The OnePlus 5 device was launched earlier this year amidst much fanfare and has been a hit among OnePlus followers. The special edition OnePlus 5 will go on sale on October 2 in Europe for a price of €559.
The limited edition OnePlus 5 gets a ‘manifesto’ etched on the back panel that reads ‘this is not a mobile phone, it is a creative machine for artists, fashion expert, ideas catcher. This tool is kool you can use it also as a telephone’.
In addition to that, the OnePlus 5 hardware buttons are now also colored. The notification slider is now yellow, volume rockers are pink/red, and the power button is now blue.
The device also comes pre-loaded with special wallpapers designed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. The artist has also designed special edition t-shirt, tote bag, baseball cap, holster, and case bag that will be available soon.
OnePlus 5 Specs and Features
Display and Design
The OnePlus 5 undoubtedly borrows a lot from Apple iPhone 7’s form factor. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1080p) AMOLED display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the home button located on the front panel of the device, flanked by capacitive touch buttons for going back or checking out the recent apps.
The processor not only consumes less battery but also renders graphics quicker.
The device comes in two variants. One of the variants sports 6GB of RAM accompanied by 64GB (UFS 2.1) of internal storage while the higher one sports 8GB of RAM accompanied by 128GB of internal storage. None of them come with an expandable storage slot.
OnePlus has hopped onto the camera innovation bandwagon by introducing the dual-lens camera setup.
The primary camera setup on the rear gets dual 16-megapixel (wide) and 20-megapixel (telephoto) lenses with a dual-LED flash and the front sports a 16-megapixel camera.
The device runs on Android Nougat out of the box and is expected to soon get an Android Oreo update. The OnePlus 5 will be available in Midnight Black and Slate Gray colors.
Corroborating with earlier reports, OnePlus 5 will be smoother than ever as the company has not only focused on providing the best hardware specs to its new flagship killer but has worked on its software to perform well in sync with the hardware.
