OnePlus is close to officially launching its next flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5, the name of which was recently confirmed but then, there were no other details given by the company. Now, Android Authority has put up an image purported to the back of the device. This image clearly shows the dual-lens camera combination that was rumored to be included in the upcoming smartphone.
The design on the back looks quite similar to the one on the previous flagship, the OnePlus 3, but it seems curvier and rounder at the edges and the big difference is the two camera lenses on the back. It does seem to look like the image that IndiaToday had posted in the recent past but there are notable differences and the picture shared by Android Authority seems like one of the company prototypes, so we now have a closer look to the real device.
While there is no picture of the front of the phone yet, we expect it to look quite similar to the previous devices and the bezels should surely get narrower, otherwise, it is not going to be even close to the other flagships like the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. And with the fingerprint scanner, we won’t be seeing a new placement as it should retain the home button section.
Some of the specs that were known through the benchmark results were the 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM and while one of the sensors on the back of the device was a 16MP one, we are yet to know what the actual combination might be.
Another rumor that many might not like is about the price hike with the entry of OnePlus 5. It is expected to cost $650 and if that is true, it would be in league with the HTC U11 that was announced with the same price, but knowing OnePlus, we hope the price keeps many of us interested.
