It Looks Like OnePlus 5 Is Copying iPhone's Symbolic Feature
Earlier this week, a photo of the upcoming OnePlus 5 leaked and it shows the prototype of Chinese flagship smartphone. According to the image, the device might have a feature that is symbolic to every Apple's iPhone. And because of that, the smartphone will be a lot more expensive compared to what is expected.
OnePlus 5 Will Look Like This
OnePlus might be testing different prototypes in the wild, considering these slips are genuine. Meaning, there’s no telling of what the final OnePlus 5 will seem to look like. However, according to BGR, the dual-lens rear camera of the smartphone appears in all these recent leaked images, so at least one thing for sure is that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will have that kind of camera.
The latest image posted to Weibo, a Chinese social media, shows a smartphone that is somewhat similar to the supposed prototype rumored before. If ever there are some obvious differences, still, the majority of the designs are the same. The handset model doesn’t have any antenna lines on the top part of the phone or even on the bottom. The rear camera setup is also changed, with the flash located between the lenses rather than below them.
OnePlus 5 Is Copying iPhone's Symbolic Feature
The most unusual feature of OnePlus 5 comes from the bottom part side of the device, which lacks a headphone jack. This is a really big deal to all critics and smartphone enthusiasts since it shows a feature just like the Apple iPhone 7, as well as the recent Motorola flagship phones. And now, according to the leaked image, OnePlus might be the next flagship phone to adopt this design change.
With this new feature, OnePlus 5 will just rely on the USB Type-C port for headphones. Aside from that, OnePlus will design their next mobile using a premium metal, just like the OnePlus 3 and 3t, as reported by Business Insider. OnePlus 5 is assumed to launch this summer, which is likely a June to July timeline.
