Earlier in the day, OnePlus confirmed that it will be launching the next iteration of its flagship killer on June 20. The Chinese smartphone giant has, however, now also confirmed that OnePlus 5 will launch in India just two days later — on June 22 as an Amazon India exclusive. A launch event for the same is being organized in Mumbai.
Yes, it seems OnePlus cannot hold onto its horses and is extremely giddy to launch its upcoming flagship killer in competition to other flagship phones from well-known hardware giants like Samsung, LG, and HTC. In the morning, it made the landing page of the device (redacted it as soon as possible, but the cat was out of the bag).
Now, a registration page for the OnePlus 5 has gone live on Amazon India’s website and it confirms details of the Mumbai launch event. While the smartphone launch happens at 12:00 p.m IST, the device will go on sale the same day at 4:30 p.m IST. This page, however, reiterates that Amazon has bagged another impressive exclusive deal as compared to Flipkart — which has never been approached to exclusively host OnePlus devices.
I’m eagerly waiting for the launch of OnePlus 5 flagship killer and just cannot contain my excitement about how sleek and iPhone-esque the device looks in the leaked renders. The Twitterati has been dragging the Chinese giant for its alleged design choice all day, but the landing page has given us an interesting insight into the internal specifications of the device — all thanks to the one and only Evan Blass.
“OnePlus 5 powered by 2.35GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM will release on 22 June 2017 as an exclusive at Amazon.in.”

While we already knew the OnePlus 5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the source code of Amazon’s registration page has now revealed that it will be an octa-core chip clocked at 2.35GHz. The highlight of this leak will, however, have to be deeds on the RAM included in the device. We’ve been guessing that the smartphone may include 4GB or 6GB RAM — since it has become a norm already.
But, it has now been revealed that OnePlus will be accompanied with a massive 8GB of RAM, which is way too much for any hand-held device. The trend points towards breaking boundaries by cutting down on the screen-to-body ratio and integrating dual camera into the device, but such massive amounts of RAM seems useless until some heavy work is being performed by the device.
