Dash Charge offers a shift in power management within your device and re-routes it from the handset to the adapter to keep your phone cooler, as it charges. The 3,300 mAh battery also lasts up to 20 percent longer than the company’s previous product, the OnePlus 3T.

Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform, the technical performance is vastly improved. OnePlus 5 draws up to 40% less power and can run numerous apps in the background without slowing down your phone.

The new smartphone also claims to feature the highest resolution dual-camera system available on the market, with a tailor-made 16MP sensor supported by a 20MP sensor. The telephoto lens can accurately determine the distance between the object and the sensor, the camera aperture of f/1.7 provides faster snaps and improves the overall image stabilization.

Initially, the OnePlus 5 was offered in a drop sale to customers who were given a special code during the product keynote event, as well as in one-day pop-up stores in New York and various locations in Europe including London, Paris and Amsterdam.
