What is interesting to note is the fact the highly anticipated OnePlus 5 almost matches Samsung's flagship Galaxy S8's hardware. However, there is still one feature that will make the Galaxy S8 a sure shot winner in the competition that is its infinity screen. Some leaked pictures of the upcoming OnePlus 5 suggest that the smartphone might not get a bezel-less display. In fact, the picture shows the big top and bottom bezels on the handset as well as a dual rear camera setup placed toward the top-left corner of the phone.
In related news, GSMArena recently obtained a screenshot showing Geekbench scores for the OnePlus 5. As per the screenshot, the upcoming smartphone scored 1963 in single-core and 6687 in multi-core in the test. The OnePlus 5 is rumored to be offered with a price tag of around $449.99. Readers should take the information with a grain of salt as OnePlus is yet to confirm OnePlus 5's specs, price and release date.
