OnePlus 5 is one of the most-awaited Android phones to come before this year ends. It's supposed to take on Samsung's newest flagship, the Galaxy S8. However, aside from having almost the same specs, it needs to be a lot cheaper, so that fans should really buy it.
Vertical Dual-camera Rumors Are False
Today, a new leak from China reveals more information about the design and specs of the upcoming OnePlus 5. According to BGR, a Weibo account named as "Kumamoto Technology" is the source of this exposure. The user claims that previous OnePlus 5 rumors to have a vertical dual lens camera are false. Instead, the smartphone will have a horizontal dual-lens shooter on the rear, just like the camera on the iPhone 7 Plus.
OnePlus 5 Design And Specs Revealed
The leak says that the alleged fingerprint sensor of the OnePlus 5 will be placed on the front part, similar to its predecessor, the OnePlus 3T. If this is correct, the next flagship of OnePLus won't have an all-screen design like the LG G6 and Galaxy S8. Kumamoto Technology also said that OnePlus 5 will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although an 8GB or 256GB variant might not be out of the question.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 will be present on the OnePLus device, but there were some discussions regarding the amount of RAM on the device. PhoneArena reported that OnePlus 5 will have a 3,600 mAh battery and will experience a substantial 25 percent improvement in terms of charging hours compared to the OnePlus 3T. As of now, there is still no confirmation whether the smartphone will feature a 3.5mm audio jack.
OnePlus 5 will apparently feature a Full HD display and should launch by the end of June or early days of July. As with all the leaks and rumors, we advise all the fans to take any unofficial reports with a pinch of salt. Assuming that it will likely cost way less than Samsung's Galaxy S8, we are pretty sure that OnePlus will have another very successful year.
