As OnePlus 5’s release date approaches, more and more details are surfacing, with some of them coming from OnePlus itself. Lately, its capability has been confirmed to be on par with the Galaxy S8 or even superior to the reigning Android device.
OnePlus 5 Specs
The Chinese company announced on its official forums that OnePlus 5 will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, the same chip powering the Samsung Galaxy S8. Fans have known this for quite a while thanks to the previous rumors and leaks, but it is nice to hear it directly from the maker.
That leads to the question, “Will it perform on the same level as the Galaxy S8?” Having the same chip does not equate to having the same performance, so the OnePlus 5 still has to prove that it can utilize the processor effectively in order to ensure maximum efficiency.
