OnePlus 5 confirmed for launch this summer

May 06, 2017, 02:15

The company told The Verge it's skipping the "OnePlus 4" because the number four is considered unlucky (tetraphobia). Now the OnePlus 5 has been found listed on Oppomart (reseller of Chinese smartphones).

Alleged specifications for the OnePlus 5 have leaked online seemingly confirming and rebutting some of the previous rumors about the upcoming device. It will be powered by the latest processor, a 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 quad-core processor and will be paired with 6GB of RAM.

On the imaging front, the OnePlus 5 will include a 12MP dual-camera setup at the back and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. More details about the OnePlus 5 should appear by the time it official launches sometime in the beginning of June.

With June just a few weeks away, rumors of OnePlus 5 are flying around from all angles as the company gets ready to replace the highly successful OnePlus 3 that was released in June 2016. But, the difference will be the upcoming smartphone will come with fast charging ability, which will charge OnePlus 5 nearly 25 per cent faster than the OnePlus 3T.

There's no doubt been plenty of speculation surrounding OnePlus' next smartphone. This render has apparently come directly from a OnePlus 5. OnePlus is known for selling high-performing phones at considerable lower prices than rivals like Apple, Samsung and Google. What might take you by surprise, however, is the name: OnePlus 5.

"Never settle" is the mantra of OnePlus - the company that has completely shaken up the smartphone industry. The OnePlus 5 will run on Android N-based Oxygen OS, and will support Dash Charge 2.0 for fast charging. The device is said to sport a 7mm thick body and a dual-edge 5.5-inch screen with QHD pixel resolution.
