Posted April 13, 2017

Just like the OnePlus 3 was one of the first handsets to sport 6GB of RAM, the newest speculation has the OnePlus 5 employing 8GB of Random Access Memory.

OnePlus has always been known for their top-end features and fairly affordable, flagship-nature smartphones.

The competition between OnePlus 5 and Huawei Honor 8 comes with an impact to the users of the noted device. Recently surfaced reports are claiming that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is promising to release the OnePlus 5 flagship smartphone without the touch latency issue.

When Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus was in India earlier this year, he told us that he wanted "OnePlus to be for smartphones what the Yeezy Boost is for sneaker". This had lead to a conundrum regarding the fingerprint scanner since there probably won't be a physical home key to house it. The device is expected to be rocking whopping 8GB of RAM.

A new article from Tech Times highlighted some of the more interesting revelations included in the report, such as the one related to how much RAM the latest smartphone from OnePlus may be able to offer.
