A new report from Korea claims that the next OnePlus smartphone is going to be called the OnePlus 5 and it brings us some purported specs of this handset. You might be wondering what happened to the OnePlus 4, it’s possible that the handset might never come out, given that OnePlus decided to launch a slightly updated version of the OnePlus 3 last year and call it the OnePlus 3T. However, there might be another reason for that.
The number “4” is often associated with bad luck in China which is probably another reason why the company might decide to leap directly to the OnePlus 5 moniker.
According to the report, the OnePlus 5 is going to look similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge and that it’s going to have a ceramic body much like that of the Xiaomi Mi Mix. It may be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
It’s also rumored to feature a 23 megapixel rear and a 16 megapixel front camera, a 4,000mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port. The device will most certainly be powered by a tweaked version of Android 7.0 Nougat since it’s not expected to come out until the third quarter of this year.
None of this has been officially confirmed by OnePlus so take it all with a grain of salt until there’s more information about its next flagship smartphone.
