True to its tradition, OnePlus 5 has a metal black design like the older versions. However, it’s also available in midnight black and slate gray colors. The dimensions of the phone are as follows: it is 154mm tall, 7.25mm thick and weighs just 153g, which makes it the lightest among all Android flagship phones available in the market.

There’s not much change in the display. The OnePlus 5 flaunts a 5.5 inch AMOLED display supporting sRGB and DCI-P3 color standards, and is protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 but retains the same old resolution of 1920X1080 as before.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 installed inside the Oneplus 5 offers up to 8GB RAM in the 128GB variant and 6GB RAM in the 64GB variant. However, there is no slot for memory card, just like its predecessors. Thus, the space provided by the company is all you have to store data on the phone.
