While the 6GB RAM variant with 64GB memory is priced at Rs 32,999, the 8GB RAM variant with 128GB memory is available for Rs 37,999. The smartphone does have a larger battery than the OnePlus 5 with a 3400mAh capacity complete with Dash Charge support.

The new product went on sale on Thursday.

Corroborating with earlier reports, OnePlus 5 will be smoother than ever as the company has not only focussed on providing the best hardware specs to its new flagship killer but has worked on its software to work well in sync with the hardware.

OnePlus' next-generation smartphone has earned positive to mixed reviews from the critics. There's no denying that OnePlus looked at the iPhone for inspiration when it comes to the OnePlus 5's design, but also for smaller things like the user interface for the camera app. The company announced that it will continue selling the OnePlus 3T in India until the end of the year. I must admit that OnePlus 5 is by far the most premium mobile device from the house of OnePlus.

For the professional photographer, the OnePlus 5 gives you access to all the settings you would find on a pro DSLR, including ISO, white balance, and exposure (as well as saving in the RAW file format). Svelte, gorgeous, and comfortable to use, that's how we can sum up the design.

The filing to the FCC in the United States (via PhoneArena) makes clear the phone is going under the model number TA-1012, rather than the initially-filed TA-1004 model. "Just kidding, of course, the OnePlus 5 has a headphone jack". Price is the biggest advantage OnePlus devices have over their main competitors.

On photography front, the device offers dual 16 MP and dual-LED flash rear camera and 16 MP front camera. The wide-angle lens is a 16MP Sony IMX 398 with an aperture of f/1.7 and has Electrical Image Stabilisation (EIS). Both phones offer a 16-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies and video calling. However, software optimization could affect the processor performance. It's not that much cheaper than the iPhone 7 either, to which it bears an uncanny resemblance. The portrait mode is quite effective and delivers great results. You can also buy 6GB RAM variant paired with 64GB internal storage. The news device has better specs, enriched design and illustrious dual camera setup.

- The OnePlus has a 5.5-inch screen with AMOLED panels and 1080P resolution.

None of the variants come with an expandable storage slot. As expected, there's no microSD card support.

The OnePlus 5 runs on OxygenOS which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The company has improved over the user experience by adding some notable features.

Are you cannot wait to buy a new OnePlus 5?

Lastly, the battery of the OnePlus 5 is decreased to 3300mAh, compared to the 3400mAh seen on the OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus 5 connectivity options include 4G LTE/VoLTE (with VoLTE), dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C (v2.0).

OnePlus 5 is undoubtedly a significant upgrade over the previous OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T handsets. The fingerprint sensor has been duly included in addition to a new hardware button called the Alert Slide which lets to quickly silence your smartphone. However, unlike the OnePlus 5, it appears to be more square shaped.
