Global mobile technology company OnePlus on 22 June 2017 launched its most awaited flagship 'OnePlus 5' in India priced at Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage version and Rs. 37,999 for 88GB RAM and 128GB storage version.

Available on sale via Amazon India, OnePlus 5 van also be purchased from OnePlus' own website as well as Amazon starting from June 27.

Featuring highest resolution dual-camera system, OnePlus 5 supports the new Dash Charge feature, which gives users a day's power in half an hour.

Enabled with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 platform, the device is coupled with up to 8 GB of RAM that provides a smooth user experience at a lower power consumption rate.

The OnePlus 5 also supports 34 GSM network bands, giving users seamless connectivity around the world.

"We have an obsessive attention to serve our customers by delivering the best user experience possible," said founder and CEO OnePlus Pete Lau.

Adding to this he said that the company has applied this approach to all aspects of the OnePlus 5.

"We are thrilled to offer our customers exclusive access to the world's highest resolution dual camera smartphone OnePlus 5. Amazon.in has successfully brought the flagship OnePlus smartphone devices to Indian customers, and are now thrilled to offer the latest OnePlus 5. This will be available for purchase starting Rs. 32,999 exclusively on Amazon.in," said VP Category Management Amazon India, Manish Tiwary.

Available at 7.25 mm, the OnePlus 5 flagship is available in Midnight Black and Slate Gray colors. The aluminum unibody features a continuous hard line around the edge of the phone.

The minimalistic design is further reinforced by a new crescent-shaped antenna that blends seamlessly into the top and bottom edges of the phone. Rounded corners and edges makes the OnePlus 5 feel more comfortable in the hand.

Keeping its strength in its dual camera, the OnePlus 5 features the highest resolution dual-camera system on a smartphone today.

It supports a tailor-made 16 MP sensor, which is supported by a 20 MP sensor with a telephoto lens to accurately determine the distance between the sensor and objects in the environment.

A large f/1.7 aperture allows for faster snaps and helps compensate for stuttering to improve image stabilization.

It allows users to use the Portrait Mode, wherein two sensors work together to create a focal separation between faces and backgrounds, while a custom software algorithm makes your subject clear and well-lit.

This results in a professional depth-of-field (bokeh) effect that keeps faces sharp in front of a blurred backdrop. Smart Capture combines optical zoom with multi-frame technology to let you zoom in with greater clarity, while Fast AF uses the dual-camera system to more accurately calculate depth to speed up auto-focus by up to 40 percent.

The all-new Pro Mode gives smartphone users powerful DSLR features such as ISO, white balance, shutter-speed, focus and exposure modification, as well as an on-screen histogram and RAW image file support for complete control of post-shot editing.

First introduced with the OnePlus 3, Dash Charge is the fastest charging solution on the global market. A quick half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 5 enough power for the day. By carrying more current and shifting the power management from the handset to the adapter to keep the phone cooler during charging, Dash Charge can continue to fast charge the OnePlus 5 even when using GPS or playing graphically intensive games. The 3,300 mAh battery also lasts up to 20 percent longer than the OnePlus 3T.

The new device will also feature custom operating system, OxygenOS. It is designed to refine stock Android's core functionalities with features and optimizations that add value to the user experience.

New updates to the OnePlus 5 include Reading Mode, which utilizes an ambient sensor and gray-scale mapping to make reading as comfortable as reading an actual book. Gaming Do Not Disturb Mode allows users to play their favorite games without being disrupted by notifications or accidental hardware button presses. With App Priority, the OnePlus 5 loads your most-used apps more quickly to further improve performance.
