OnePlus 5 will feature Snapdragon 835 – CEO Pete Lau confirms it

- Adrian Ungureanu

In June we should see the release of the beast, the unveiling of the ”Flagship Killer”, the OnePlus 5. Well, it seems I got a little carried away. Still, OnePlus 5 is an interesting topic these days and the Chinese company knows how to keep us connected.

The company teased the smartphone before, but not specs were revealed until now. Going on OnePlus’ official forum, Pete Lau reminded us the OnePlus 5 is getting ready and share some information with us about the next “flagship killer”.

With the OnePlus 5, our commitment to this philosophy continues. We’re proud to announce the OnePlus 5 will feature the Snapdragon™ 835 processor, which sets the foundation for smooth, powerful, and efficient performance. With graphically-demanding apps, for example, you’ll notice how fast they load and how well they run.

But choosing the right components is only the first step. You also have to optimize performance to create the best user experience. When we began developing the OnePlus 5, we envisioned a smartphone with flawlessly smooth performance. To illustrate how we made it happen, we’d like to share a bit about our process.

One of the main areas we wanted to improve was touch latency. Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. There wasn’t a lot of precedent for them to work with – no benchmarks, no industry case studies to learn from. So we used a special high-speed camera to track screen movements and measure input speeds. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience“, note Pete Lau on the forum.

Is not that surprising really. It would’ve been a shock if OnePlus 5 wouldn’t have been equipped with the best chipset on the market.
