You just cannot deny the Samsung Galaxy is till date the best smartphone available till now. Considering the brands, Samsung is the top brand of all the smartphone brands available in the market. But it seems there is a rival of Galaxy S8 and S8+. Yes, you heard that right, and the rival is OnePlus 5.
Initially, we thought that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ would not have any competition for at least the next one year. It looks like we were wrong about it! One Plus is one of the best China based startups which managed to offer brilliant smartphones in the recent years.
Well, speaking of the startups, most of the companies are tagged as “second brand” mobile devices. These brands fail to make a position on their own in the smartphone industry. Yes, it is not an easy job for a startup company to compete with a multi-billionaire company like Samsung.
Now that being said, OnePlus is now the only company that succeeded to compete with Samsung. The primary strategy of OnePlus was to offer premium flagship phones at affordable price. This is how it created its way into the US market. It offers the latest and best technologies at a cost which is much less than Samsung and Apple.
OnePlus 5 offers same specs like Galaxy S8 at lesser price
OnePlus is all set to deliver its next flagship device called the OnePlus 5. Earlier this week, we got to know about the specs of the phone. Now, once again a concept video is released which offers a clear idea about the specs and features of OnePlus 5. One of the best features of this phone is, it reduced the bezels without removing the home button like Samsung.
Apart from this, OnePlus 5 will also come with a front-facing fingerprint sensor. OnePlus 5 will get a 5.5-inch QHD display with a Snapdragon 85 processor. The phone will get 6GB RAM and 13MP dual-lens camera. It will come with the latest version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat and a 3000 mAh battery.
Looking at the specifications, we can say it is a clear rival of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The Galaxy S8 comes at a price of $824, but we are not sure about the price of OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 3T comes at the cost of just $439. Even if the OnePlus 5 is $200 more, still it is cheaper than Galaxy S8 with same specs and features. According to the Verge, this new flagship phone will launch this summer. The naming about this OnePlus flagship phone came from the jersey number of NBA player Robert Horry. OnePlus employees are a huge fan of the NBA Player Robert Horry.
