OnePlus 3 and 3T wont get updates after Android O
OnePlus 5 soft gold edition comes on sale
OnePlus weather app now available in Play Store
The OnePlus 5 has had most of its features leaked out already, most of it by the company's CEO, and the latest leak talks about the storage tech used inside.
OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu, recently posted on Chinese social networking site Weibo about how UFS (Universal Flash Storage) is becoming the norm in flagship devices. Translated into English, Lau's message reads, “Now the flagship machine UFS have become a selling point, too much fun.”
Up until now, each OnePlus device came with eMMC storage which is not as fast as the newer UFS tech. UFS 2.1 storage allows the phone to both read and write at the same time making memory reading and writing speeds much faster.
His message did not confirm if the UFS 2.1 tech would be used in the new phone, but everything else hinted at on social media by the OnePlus team seems to have been confirmed by leaks from other sources. So we wouldn't be surprised if we see the OnePlus 5 launching with UFS 2.1 tech. However, this might also add to the price.
We will know for certain by June 20th, when OnePlus plans to announce its new phone. Other leaks have suggested it will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 8GB of RAM and even a dual-camera setup on the rear.
