First coming to OnePlus 5 India availability, Amazon India has announced that customers will be able to purchase the smartphone in India exclusively through the website via a sale that would start at 4:30pm IST, on the same day as the phone’s India launch. Those who are interested can also apply for notifications regarding the release from the website’s dedicated OnePlus 5 page. While the teaser page for the phone only mentions that OnePlus 5 features Snapdragon 835 processor, which has already been confirmed by the company, some more information has been revealed from the source code of the page.
“OnePlus 5 powered by 2.35GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM will release on 22 June 2017 as an exclusive at Amazon.in,” was spotted written in the source code of the teaser page by well-known tipster Evan Blass.

Notably, the flagship smartphone has been previously tipped to feature 8GB of RAM in leaks as well.
Moving on to the camera sample, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau shared a picture clicked by the OnePlus 5 in low-light conditions on Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo.

Recently, the alleged renders of OnePlus 5 were leaked and suggested that the phone will come with a design similar to that of iPhone 7 Plus. The recent leaks have indicated that the phone will feature a horizontal dual camera setup at the back.
Finally moving on to the teaser video, shared by the company on Tuesday, the company has shared the positive feedback received by its OnePlus 3T smartphone but mentioned that with upcoming flagship, it is “aiming for 5.” The numeral indicates both the 5 star rating aspiration as well is the reference for the OnePlus 5.
