OnePlus 5 May Soon Be Launched In A Swanky Red Variant
Oneplus has just posted a new image on their social media suggest a brand new colour for their 2017 flagship the Oneplus 5. The OnePlus 5 was launched in June and was embroiled in controversy because of botched benchmark scores and a higher price than expected from OnePlus devices, which left a lot of people questioning OnePlus’ decisions.
The OnePlus 5 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Chipset it has 6GB or 8GB of RAM along with 64GB or 128GB onboard storage. The highlight of the OnePlus 5 was the dual 16MP+20MP camera setup which has features like portrait mode, and background defocus, the design and features of the camera were also said to be copied from the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
OnePlus didn’t make any changes on the display on the OnePlus 5 keeping the same 5.5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 px resolution. OnePlus has also kept the Optic AMOLED display seen on the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3t along with the fingerprint sensor sitting below the screen.
The OnePlus 5, is presently, available in two colour variants; the Slate Gray and Midnight Black. The Midnight Black colour variant is only available in the 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage variant, and is priced at Rs 37,999. OnePlus has experimented with colors in the past, way back with the OnePlus One the company launched replacement panels, which would change the back of the OnePlus One to a bamboo finish. Last year, with the OnePlus 3T the company launched a Limited Colette edition black phone which was lated sold globally as the limited edition Midnight Black. The Midnight Black colour is the same as the one on the OnePlus 5 top variant.
Prior to launch the leaks had suggested that OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 5 in a RED, much like the iPhone 7 RED colour, and later images for a blue OnePlus 5 surfaced. These may finally be revealed, or one of them at least. As the posted image shows a black canvas on the OnePlus 5 and the text “5ometing New. Coming Soon” is written in bright Red indicating a red colour variant. We honestly, wouldn’t mind a blue colour version either.
Despite the controversies, the OnePlus 5 has received good reviews for its snappy performance and is one of the popular flagships of 2017. A new colour variant, possibly blue or red should re-ignite the dwindling conversation for the Oneplus 5. Stay tuned for updates, and an iGyaan Hands-On, when and if a RED colour launches.
