Earlier today, we reported that the upcoming OnePlus flagship smartphone may carry a model number of A5000 as it has been spotted on the website of the Chinese State Radio Regulation Committee (SRRC). Now, some leaked images of the alleged OnePlus 5 case have appeared to reveal that the flagship phone may come with dual rear cameras.
Sources from China have claimed that the OnePlus 5 will indeed arrive with a dual rear camera setup and what we see here are the first images of its protective case. However, we advise our readers to take this rumor with a pinch of salt because the alleged OnePlus 5 case appears quite generic and there is no information available yet on the design of the OnePlus 5 smartphone.
Leading Chinese smartphone brands like Huawei, Vivo, and LeEco are now selling phones with dual rear cameras. Xiaomi too is expected to introduce dual rear camera on Xiaomi Mi 6. Having a twin rear camera feature would certainly allow the OnePlus to rival these brands in the camera department.
The rumor mill has revealed that OnePlus may skip OnePlus 4 moniker for its upcoming flagship as the number 4 is a bad omen in the home country. Hence, the next flagship phone may launch as OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones have respective model numbers of A3000 and A3010. Since the A5000 model number has now been spotted, it seems that there won’t be any OnePlus 4 as the company may launch its next flagship as OnePlus 5.
The rumor mill has revealed that the OnePlus 5 would be coming with a 5.5-inch screen with reduced bezels. It could be the first OnePlus smartphone to come with support for quad HD resolution. The Snapdragon 835 is expected to give power to the OnePlus 5 along with a mammoth 8 GB RAM. It will be running on Android Nougat OS customized with OxygenOS UI from OnePlus
The OnePlus 3T is priced at $439 for 64 GB model and $479 for 128 GB model. Speculations surrounding OnePlus 5 hint that it may be priced under $500. The smartphone is pegged to debut in June or July this year.
