This New OnePlus 5 Leak Is All You Need
Hours from now, the world will finally know what the brouhaha about the OnePlus 5 is all about. Of course, things will not go quietly as a bombardment of leaks has begun. One leak, in particular, may just be everything fans and tech pundits need to appease their excitement as they count down the hours.
Slashleaks, notorious for posting leaked images of various devices, has struck again with a couple of photos of the supposed OnePlus 5. BGR reported that the first image, courtesy of a tweet by Harsh Pittroda, consists of four OnePlus 5 cases and a box of what is likely that of the smartphone itself. The box, which resembles previous OnePlus packaging, features an image of what looks like the OnePlus 5.
The second image shows the back portion of the OnePlus 5 handset itself. There's not much difference from previously leaked images as it still looks a lot like Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. OnePlus has gotten some bad rep for supposedly copying the iPhone 7 Plus particularly from the backside. Now, the similarity between the two involves more than just their looks. It was recently reported that the OnePlus 5 can take DSLR-like images as evidenced by a photo posted by OnePlus co-founder Peter Lau. The effect achieved on the photo in question is similar to one taken by an iPhone 7 plus using its Portrait Mode.
Furthermore, the OnePlus 5 will have a 16-megapixel main camera and a 20-megapixel telephoto lens according to "GSMArena". If true, this means the OnePlus 5 will not come with the previously rumored monochrome sensor or even a wide-angle shooter. While the phone's dual camera set-up is impressive as it is, it gives more credence to the rumor that the OnePlus 5 is just a replica of the iPhone 7 Plus.
As mentioned, there are a number of last-minute leaks sprouting here and there. Android Police managed to gather some of the more important ones which include one by notorious leakster Evan Blass.
Blass posted an image of the OnePlus 5 in its full glory. There are slight differences from previous leaks such as the size of the power button and a change in angle for the camera. However, its similarity with the iPhone 7 Plus is still obvious.
Another leak coming all the way from China courtesy of the website "MyDrivers," shows a set of photos of the front and back of the OnePlus 5 along with a case and a box with the tagline "Dual Camera. Clearer Photos."
A spec sheet was also leaked by True Tech which shows some details that have been rumored before. The OnePlus 5, according to the leak, will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor with 2.3GHz clock speed. It will have 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage, and a non-removable 4,000mAh LiPo battery. The OnePlus 5 will come in Slate Grey and Soft Gold while the 128GB model will also be available in Deep Black. The 6GB RAM/64GB ROM variant will cost around $500 while the higher end 8GB/128GB model will be worth around $600.
