OnePlus 5: Confirmed specs, rumoured features and everything else we know so far

Because of the “tetra phobia” (a painful fear of the number 4, prevalent mainly in East Asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea), the next “flagship killer” from the Chinese company OnePlus will be called OnePlus 5, not OnePlus 4. This name is already Was confirmed by a lot of leaks, as, indeed, the specifications of the device itself, which we will give below. But the images of OnePlus 5 has not yet been, until this day.

The source published images of the smartphone OnePlus 5, generated on the computer. As for their origin, it is said that they were created on the basis of information provided by “people who saw and probably worked with OnePlus 5.” As usual, the design can still be changed, so the final version of OnePlus 5 may look different.

Unfortunately, the image shows only the back side, so the full design will not work out. But certain conclusions on it can still be made.

Apparently, OnePlus 5 will try on the matte black design, which was so favorably received by fans after the release of the corresponding color version of OnePlus 3T. Another eye-catching detail is the dual main camera. But given the current fashion for dual cameras, this was well worth expecting.

One would assume that the new flagship OnePlus will inherit the metal frame from the models OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. However, the image does not show the antenna stripes at the top of the back panel, which is a little strange, there is only one noticeable strip from the bottom. However, it is possible that the author of these images just missed this moment and forgot to draw a similar strip on top.


OnePlus company has published another advertising image dedicated to the upcoming release of the new flagship smartphone OnePlus 5. And this new image is much more valuable in terms of the information contained in it than all previous teasers put together.

Images with four numbered stripes of different colors are accompanied by the question “What color should your next smartphone be? (“What 5hould be the color of your next phone be?”). In this case, it is necessary to pay attention to the manner of writing the second word of the sentence; The use of the number 5 instead of the English letter s in the word should – an obvious reference to the upcoming flagship OnePlus 5.

There are two possible options: either the company asks to help her determine the colors of the OnePlus 5 case, or she demonstrates to us all the color options in which the device will be available when she enters the market.

While it is not known which of them will be true, but taking into account that 1, 3 and 4 (black, red and golden) are the most popular colors in the smartphone market this year, the second option seems more plausible. As for the color number 2, there is a suggestion that this is a hint of a glass back panel and a lot of possibilities for coloring, but there is no exact data yet. However, over time, leaks should shed light on this aspect.

Meanwhile, the head of OnePlus confirmed that the fingerprint scanner from OnePlus 5 will be located in front.

The lack of a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel may indicate that it was transferred to the front panel and integrated into the Home button. Speaking of the still “uncharted” side of OnePlus 5, it is assumed that the device will receive the same 16-megapixel camera that was in the OnePlus 3T model. As for other features, the device is credited with a 5.5-inch screen QHD, SoC Snapdragon 835, at least 6 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of internal memory and a battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh.

It is expected that the OnePlus 5 will be thin enough – 7 mm.
