OnePlus 5 Will Be Unveiled On June 20 And It May Look Like An iPhone
The closer it is to the OnePlus 5 launch, the more exciting the rumors and leaks are. And speaking of launch dates, it looks like OnePlus has already signified when the highly anticipated flagship smartphone will be officially introduced.
According to Android Police, the Chinese tech company will unveil the full details of the OnePlus 5 on June 20. This means fans and tech pundits need to wait around two more weeks before all the rumors that have been going around will finally be confirmed or proven erroneous.
Aside from the launch date, a new render of the OnePlus 5 is also making the rounds and chances are high that it is the actual handset which will be unveiled on June 20. If the supposed render of the OnePlus 5 shows a good-looking yet familiar handset, it's because it looks almost exactly like the iPhone 7 Plus. As 9to5Mac pointed out, OnePlus strayed from its usual design. Unfortunately, they came up with an iPhone clone of some sort. A side-by-side comparison of the two devices shows that the OnePlus 5, inadvertently or not, copied the design of the iPhone 7 Plus. Both phones have a dual camera arranged horizontally on the upper left corner while the company logo sits on the center of the back. The microphone and flash are also situated beside the dual camera set-up in both phones.
If not for the logos, one would have a hard time distinguishing one from the other. However, the OnePlus 5 did place the home and volume buttons differently. The OnePlus 5 has its home button on the left side and the volume buttons on the right. The iPhone 7 Plus has the power button on the right and the volume on the left side.
Apple is known for protecting what is theirs. The tech giant has been going after supposed copycats for a long time now. In fact, it has been in a bitter battle with Samsung, which it has accused of patent infringement, for quite a number of years now.
