OnePlus 5 to be unveiled this month

Clear the day in your diary – the date of the launch of OnePlus's new smartphone is in.

The OnePlus 5 is set to be unveiled on June 20th, which we now know because the firm has created a new webpage counting down to this date.

Nothing builds up tension and excitement like a ticking clock, so we're eagerly hoping the result justifies the amount of build-up.

Rumours about what features might be included in the OnePlus 5 have been doing the rounds for a while now.

Sources of varying levels of authority expect the device to boast a dual camera and a 3,600 mAh battery, along with about 6GB of RAM.

Much of the speculation also suggests that the handset will feature a Snapdragon 835 processor and a dual camera.

OnePlus also teased customers on Twitter recently by asking what colour they would like their next phone to be and presenting a few options.

Does this suggest that a range of colours could be available? It seems likely.

Pete Lau, the chief exec of OnePlus, has confirmed the unveiling date for the new handset on Twitter, which seems pretty official to us.

So it seems we'll just have to wait until June 20th to see how many of the rumours are accurate.

One rumour that does stand out is the possibility of it costing in the region of £350. That's quite a bit cheaper than the iPhone 7, which you can't pick up for less than £599.

Of course, this figure hasn't been confirmed, but nevertheless, it does seem fairly safe to predict that this handset will be significantly less expensive than Apple's most recent offering.

OnePlus has also released a video stressing its belief in “delivering the best user experience”, which it said is “about more than just building the best product”.

Therefore, it certainly looks like the company is looking to offer the full package to customers and park itself squarely on its competitors' lawns.
