OnePlus 5, everything you need to know

OnePlus have just announced and revealed their newest flagship device, the OnePlus 5, the device is set to release on the 27th of June and start with a price of £449 ($479.)

If you had watched the Livestream reveal live, you can purchase the phone with a code that was given to you, but for people who missed the livestream the phone will be fully released to the public on the 27th of June.

Now to start off with, I thought I’d get the worst news out of the way, this model is the most expensive phone that the company has put on sale. But, with the specs and the detail that has gone into manufacturing this phone, you can’t exactly complain about the price tag.

Some of it’s main features would be it’s premium design compared to older versions of the OnePlus and even some other flagship devices such as HTC or Samsung or even Iphones, it’s design is sleek and more comfortable.

It has a full anodized aluminium body to make it feel more premium to it’s touch.

For people who are wanting a phone with extravagant colours though, it’d be best to look elsewhere, with this phone being released in only Slate Grey, and Midnight Black, both with different RAM and Memory (midnight black has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage compared to the Slate Grey with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.)
