OnePlus broke into the competitive smartphone scene by primarily releasing pocket-friendly flagships. Recent leaks have revealed that the company will be coming up with the OnePlus 5 handset this year. Google has also confirmed at the MWC 2017 that the Pixel 2 is on the way.

There are talks that the OnePlus flagship will come with a 5.5-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display, like the one in Galaxy S7 Edge. A 1440p QHD resolution is a big possibility though the exact display details are not yet available. The Galaxy and OnePlus sets will run on Android 7.0 Nougat and pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. For the global markets, Samsung may release an Exynos 8995 SoC variant. The OnePlus handset may come with a 6GB or 8GB RAM, bigger than the other two.

Both the phones may use either AMOLED or Super-AMOLED displays. The Samsung flagship will also be released with an Exynos 8895 processor, and may boast 4-6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

The Google Pixel 2 will also likely get the Snapdragon 835 boost. The Galaxy handsets will come with 5.1-inch and 6.2-inch curved displays that will also boast QHD+ resolution. The Samsung smartphones are said to be dropping the physical Home button and shifting the fingerprint scanner to the rear. They will have a higher screen-to-body ration than their predecessors.
