OnePlus 5 Finally Gets Confirmed; CEO Pete Lau Teases Handset On Weibo

Not so long ago, disputable OnePlus 5 images started doing rounds showing off what would be the successor to the glorious OnePlus 3T. Overall, it looks to be the first official OnePlus 5 teaser. The user says previous OnePlus 5 rumors that said the phone will have a vertical dual lens camera are false. The leak says the images to be fake and OnePlus 5 would, in fact, come with horizontal dual camera setup on the top left corner. Before venturing further we would like to remind readers that this is unofficial information and readers should regard it as such.

Tech gossip hounds in South Korea claimed earlier this year that the OnePlus 5 (there won't be a OnePlus 4, as 4 is seen as unlucky in China), will come with a curved screen, massive 23 megapixel camera, 4000 mAh battery and as much as 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Kumamoto technology believes the internal storage will be 128 GB at least.

The OnePlus 5 is expected to get a 5.5-inch display with 2K resolution, Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB of RAM, 3,000 mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone, slim bezels with no physical home button and wireless charging support. However, the leak also reveals that the latest flagship device is expected to come with 25 percent improvement in the charging speed as compared to its predecessor. So it remains to be seen how the upcoming flagship smartphone from OnePlus shapes up as there are already a lot of speculations going on regarding the features as well as the release date of the smartphone. A separate Weibo leaker found by My Drivers says that the OnePlus 5 should launch by the end of June.

Amid rumors surrounding OnePlus' next flaghship smartphone, company CEO Pete Lau has finally confirmed that they are indeed working on OnePlus 5.
