The OnePlus 5 has leaked in a number of photos showing dual cameras and a metal unibody, and the company has itself confirmed the presence of the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 within the handset and the company’s mobile photography partnership with DxOMark. Now, though, we finally have a confirmation from the manufacturer of the OnePlus 5 launch event.
OnePlus has now confirmed that it will launch the OnePlus 5 in a special event at 12 noon EDT (9:30PM IST) on June 20th. The event will be live streamed globally. OnePlus has also confirmed on the same page that the company will bring the launch event to New York’s Meatpacking District at 7pm the same day, with special guests MKBHD (Marquees Brownlee) and OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei (Twitter handle @getpeid). Further, OnePlus India will hold a separate launch event on June 22 at 2 PM IST in Mumbai.

The OnePlus 5 launch date, set for June 20th, is just a few days behind the rumored release date of June 15th.
The OnePlus 5 is said to have, in addition to the dual rear cameras and Snapdragon 835 SoC, a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, UFS 2.1 flash storage, arrive in four gradient colors, and come with Android Nougat out of the box.
Questions still remain as to the price of this upcoming beast, though, with some isolated rumors stating the device could be priced as high as $600 USD. No word on this yet, but we’ll give more details as they become available.
