Tis the season of the Android flagship. With the Galaxy S8 set to fight off the LG G6 and HTC U Ultra for contention, the market for high-end, high-priced handsets is getting awfully crowded. And it looks like you can add one more to the mix, which might be the toughest competitor yet.
According to PCPop, the OnePlus 5 is shaping up to be a beast of a mid-range handset (yes, OnePlus is skipping the number four since it’s bad luck in China, kind of like how U.S. hotels sometimes go from the 12th floor to the 14th). OnePlus has always been on the cutting-edge with the chips its uses in its phones, with the 3T bringing a mid-cycle update to include the Snapdragon 821, so it’s not very surprising that it will reportedly use the 835 in its next phone. Additionally, the phone may come with a whopping 8GB of RAM, an increase over last year’s 6GB, and topping even the Asia-exclusive S8+.
