OnePlus 5 is finally in the works, as confirmed by CEO Pete Lau earlier this week. Now OnePlus has revealed that the OP 5 will be unveiled this summer, according to a new report.
The OnePlus 5 was confirmed to arrive this summer by a report in The Verge. It was assumed earlier that the latest flagship will be not be called OnePlus 4 as the number 4 is considered unlucky in China. However the company has confirmed to The Verge that the naming was influenced by the number five jersey of former NBA player Robert Horry, who is liked by OnePlus employees.
Also, on Friday, the OnePlus 5 was spotted listed on an online retail site where specifications and price were shown, possibly a June unveil and availability was outed, but unclear whether it was for the 64GB variant or the 128GB variant.
The listing on OppoMart however is not officially confirmed by OnePlus and hence should be taken with a pinch of salt. Reason being the smartphone listed shows a vertical rear dual-camera setup, which was earlier challenged by a Weibo leak claiming the smartphone will feature a horizontal rear camera setup.
Based on rumors so far, the latest OnePlus flagship will feature Snapdragon 835 chipset, 5.5-inch quad-HD display, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The camera specs are still on the loose with various reports stating various specs. There also have been reports of the OP 5 featuring a dual-edged curved display, navigation keys, and slimmer bezels.
