Shenzhen-based smartphone maker OnePlus will unveil their upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone any day now with reports on the internet indicating that OnePlus has skipped on the number 4 which according to the Chinese tradition is considered unlucky. Their existing OnePlus 3T smartphone is the existing flagship device from the company that is currently sold at a price of $450.
The company has indeed confirmed the OnePlus 5 smartphone with reports from Cnet indicating that the new smartphone might be released in the summer. The company's Weibo account activity has indeed hyped every OnePlus fan in which a sketch of the smartphone being worked out with the company's hashtag #NeverSettle was put up on the account.
Several rumors on the internet have already pointed out that the new smartphone may feature dual-cameras on the back. Device sketches of the OnePlus 5 smartphone have already confirmed a USB Type-C port at the bottom with speaker grills at the sides. All the device renders from various sources have only one thing in common i.e the dual-camera setup.
It seems the smartphone industry is adapting a new trend with many manufacturers deciding to implement the same feature in order to attract more buyers who love taking images on their smartphones. OnePlus, however, has declined to respond to the questions about the OnePlus 5 smartphone. Details from Phone Arena indicate that the upcoming smartphone from the Chinese maker will feature 8GB of RAM which, for a smartphone, is really uncalled for.
Alongside the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the OnePlus 5 will also have a battery capacity of 4000mAh indicating that OnePlus isn't really bothered on incorporating very high capacity hardware on their smartphones. The brand has quickly transitioned from a startup to a major Android smartphone maker in the span of four years now. The company also recently launched a dedicated retail store in Bengaluru, India this year in a move that is also followed by its competitor Xiaomi.
