OnePlus 5 seems to be confirmed following the teaser posted by CEO

04 May 2017, 10:42 | Shelley Chandler

Before the impending debut of the OnePlus 5 we have started seeing a healthy influx of some leaks, rumors and images of the device.

The OnePlus 5 is the next Android phone you should be excited about if you haven't bought into the Galaxy S8 frenzy. Still, we do expect the OnePlus 5 to offer noticeably better battery life than the OnePlus 3T, thanks to the more efficient hardware inside and perhaps better software optimization as well.

The source also says that while rumors of a dual-lens camera are accurate, the lenses will be horizontally aligned rather than vertically aligned, which would mean previously leaked images of the phone - including the one above - are inaccurate. However, Kumamoto Technology claims that the OnePlus 5 won't have an all-screen design or an edge-to-edge display because the fingerprint sensor will still be located up front.

While most industry insiders agree the OnePlus 5 will come packing a Snapdragon 835, a consensus is yet to be established while RAM capacity is concerned.

Coming to the memory aspect, the device is expected to come with 6GB RAM instead of 8GB, as per both the sources.

According to BGR, Lau teased the upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone on Weibo. OnePlus' Dash charging has become a benchmark for the fast charging tech and the post mentions that it will be further improved by 25 percent over the last iteration. We're already seeing that some phone makers are already ditching the headphone jack in favor of USB-C or wireless solutions like Bluetooth, and OnePlus could jump on board to do the same.

OnePlus recently posted a teaser photo confirming the existence of the successor to the OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau also shared the same image on his own Weibo page as well. This year the OnePlus 5 is expected in May.
