OnePlus fans got busy speculating this week about a series of leaked photographs that have surfaced online. The four photos allegedly came from the rumored OnePlus 5 handset. EXIF data shows that the leaked photo was taken using a camera with the model number A5000, which are easily in line with previous OnePlus model numbers.
Another interesting information is that based on the latitude and longitude in the stored EXIF data, it appears that the photos were taken in Shenzen, China, where OnePlus is based. Could this mean that a new budget smartphone product could be unveiled very soon? Fans hope so as the smartphone brand is hailed as one of the best android phone device in 2017.
Previous OnePlus 5 rumors have stated the presence of a dual camera setup on the back of the upcoming Snapdragon 835 flagship. Interestingly, the recently leaked photo samples point to that very feature from the blurring in the second photo. According to Phone Arena, one photography expert has analyzed data of the pictures and predicted that the next OnePlus handset could feature dual 16MP cameras.
The photo expert added that one of the snappers will be capturing wide angle photos in order to gather more depth information. The upcoming flagship is expected to be equipped with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. According to the WCCFTech, under the hood will be a Snapdragon 835 chipset carrying an octa-core CPU, with the Adreno 540 GPU. OxygenOS is also expected to be found running on top of Android 7.1.1, with an 8GB of RAM, and an expected 64GB/128GB native storage.
The OnePlus 5 is also predicted to have a 4000mAh battery in charge of keeping the lights on. A great camera software with this smartphone brand could be an awesome upgrade for the widely-known budget phone. However, keep in mind that EXIF data can be faked, and the real camera features of the handset that are soon to be unveiled remain to be seen.
