OnePlus Five Confirmed for Summer 2017

Now, new details regarding specifications for the flagship smartphone, OnePlus 5 have emerged. As expected, the company is not naming its 2017 flagship OnePlus 4 as the number four is considered to be unlucky in China. Well, now speaking to The Verge, OnePlus did confirm the name of the phone to be the OnePlus 5.

OnePlus' reasoning behind skipping the number 4 in favor of 5 for their next smartphone is a bit complicated.

OnePlus will launch its feature-rich OnePlus Five smartphone this summer.

It's also probably safe to say the phone will run a very stock-like Android 7 Nougat augmented with OnePlus's own customizable features.

OnePlus 5 is the successor to the powerful OnePlus 3T. The first thing you'll notice on their website is the price which shows that the OnePlus 5 could cost $200 more than we previously thought.

The upcoming flagship smartphone of OnePlus is reportedly going to boast a horizontal dual camera set-up. The listing also revealed the back of the phone, showing a black variant with OnePlus' logo at the center.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the upcoming smartphone from the company, the OnePlus 5 is in works.

The device is speculated to come powered by the Snapdragon 835, and be made available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. It's believed the selfie camera will remain the same as the 3T with 16 megapixels of resolution. On the front side, there will be a 5.5-inch screen but OnePlus may be sticking to 1080p again, which makes sense for a display that size.

A year ago the company launched its OnePlus 3 with Qualcomm's then flagship processor Snapdragon 820, OnePlus 3T sports the slighly higher variant Snapdragon 821. To be honest, it is the fifth handset to arrive, if we consider the OnePlus X too, so the company isn't wrong to call it the OnePlus 5.
