This year is really is shaping up to be a great year in the field of smartphones, or in technology in general. The past few weeks, all smartphones enthusiasts have seen the launch of eclectic mobile devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Xiaomi Mi 6. This is just the beginning because in the next two months, OnePlus, HTC and Nokia are expected to launch their new flagship phones.
One Plus 5
The name OnePlus 4, which is supposed to be the name of the next flagship phone, is being skipped due to the fact that the number 4 in Chinese beliefs is considered bad luck. Therefore, after the amazing OnePlus 3 series, fans will see the OnePlus 5. It is rumored to launch in the second half of the year, meaning that is probably in the month of June.
OnePlus 5 will come in three color variants - Black, Gold, and Grey. Previous rumors also claimed that the next OnePlus' flagship smartphone will have 8GB of RAM, a QuadHD display and will run Snapdragon 835 SoC. In addition to that, its Adreno is 540 GPU, with up to 256GB of internal storage and a battery of 3,000mAh.

Rumors on HTC U 11 suggest that users will be able to squeeze the side of the smartphone and pressure sensitive buttons will be provided with various functions. That unique button may perform several kinds of task such as launching a specific app or taking a snap. According to TechRadar, HTC's next flagship smartphone will be announced on May 16 and the firm will get the handset on pre-sale before the end of the month.
