Details are slowly being revealed for the upcoming OnePlus 5, and the latest is the confirmation of the phone packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
The announcement was made on Qualcomm’s Twitter, as the firm let the world know that the new OnePlus flagship will have its most powerful chip under the hood.
#OnePlus5 is coming soon and we couldn't be more excited that it's powered by #Snapdragon 835. ✋ https://t.co/Q4srf6LrqC pic.twitter.com/DP41b2jtcq24 May 2017
OnePlus CEO Peter Lau has also written a blog post on the performance of the OnePlus 5, saying the chip "sets the foundation for smooth, powerful, and efficient performance. With graphically-demanding apps, for example, you'll notice how fast they load and how well they run."
We also know the phone will be called the OnePlus 5, not the OnePlus 4, and it'll launch sometime this summer, with June looking the most likely for now.
In the past the OnePlus pull has been flagship specs at an affordable price point, but rumors claim the Chinese firm may increase the price point for its upcoming smartphone.
It's still likely to come in cheaper than its established flagship rivals, but it might not be quite the same value for money as in previous years.
