OnePlus 5 is the fastest-selling device in the company’s history

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei says that the OnePlus 5 is the fastest-selling device in the Chinese company’s history.
 
In a tweet last night following the phone’s official announcement, Pei jubilantly said: “The first numbers are in, the OnePlus 5 is our fastest selling device ever!”
 
The OnePlus 5, which has a dual-camera setup, up to 128GB of storage and speedy Dash Charging, doesn’t go on sale until June 27th, so the Pei’s figures are based on pre-order numbers only.
 
The phone has been available to pre-order globally for a few days, but OnePlus has also held several pop-up events to give early birds a chance to snap it up before everyone else.
 
OnePlus hasn’t released any official pre-sale figures yet, but its early success sees the OnePlus 5 beating all of the company’s previous five smartphones, including the OnePlus 3T that launched in November 2016.
