OnePlus 5 Spotted Running Android 8.0 Oreo on Geekbench, Update Appears Imminent

Sometime this month, some select consumers, saw their OnePlus 5 handsets receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The company, however, revealed that it was still working on the builds for OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5, which was why it had to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo on its OnePlus 5 device.


Going by the listing, the OnePlus 5 handset is seen running Google’s latest Android 8.0 Oreo and this has raised a lot of eyebrows.

If the report is to be believed, then the company might have just begun the update on its latest flagship device, but within a closed-group beta.

To recall, the dual-SIM device with support for Nano SIM-cards rolled out with OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.

It packs a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Optic AMOLED display that comes with a support functionality for sRGB and DCI-P3 color standards, and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.

Powered by Qualcomm’s reputable Snapdragon 835 processor, the flagship device is offered in two options including 6GB RAM/64GB memory and 8GB RAM/128GB storage space.

In the camera department, the OnePlus 5 bears a dual camera configuration that consists of a 16-megapixel primary camera (Sony IMX398 sensor, 1.12-micron pixels) tagged with an f/1.7 aperture, paired with a secondary 20-megapixel telephoto camera (Sony IMX350 sensor, 1-micron pixels) coupled with an f/2.6 aperture.

As per connectivity options, the phone brings 4G LTE (with VoLTE) connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C (v2.0).

It also comes with onboard sensors like an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, and a proximity sensor. It measures 154.2×74.1×7.25mm and weighs 153 grams.
