Many rumours were doing the round about the much-anticipated OnePlus 5 and the confirmation that device would feature the Qualcomm 835 SoC is a welcome change.

Also, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has also confirmed that OnePlus 5 will come with Snapdragon 835.

He said in a blog post on the company’s official forum: “One of the main areas we wanted to improve was touch latency. Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. There wasn’t a lot of precedent for them to work with – no benchmarks, no industry case studies to learn from. So we used a special high-speed camera to track screen movements and measure input speeds. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience.”
