Not so long ago, disputable OnePlus 5 images started doing rounds showing off what would be the successor to the glorious OnePlus 3T.
Even though the upcoming OnePlus 5 flagship killer is expected to keep a huge chunk of the design that made the OnePlus 3 and 3T such popular phones in 2016 and up to now, the leaked images appeared to be kind of edited from a 3T. While the images did not give us the exact specs of the alleged OnePlus 5 handset, they revealed a dual-lens camera on the back alongside a suggestion that the fingerprint scanner will stick to the front panel.
Apparently, the image suggested that the OnePlus 5 will ship with a dual-lens camera, something that has appeared in rumor mills for quite some time now. In addition, the images suggested that the camera setup will be vertical, similar to the Huawei Mate 9, however, a new development has just come in claiming otherwise.
According to the new report, OnePlus 5 will indeed have a dual-lens camera on the back, however, the setup will be horizontal, something similar to what Xiaomi Mi 6 or Huawei P10 and P10 Plus have already done. In addition to the camera details, the new report also claims that OnePlus will release a high-end variant of the phone with a massive 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.
Like believed before this report, the fingerprint scanner and home button will keep their place on the bottom bezel. Previous rumors had suggested that the battery capacity of the incoming OnePlus 5 will be smaller than the 3T, standing at just 3000mAh. However, the new report claims otherwise – that the battery will be bigger at 3600mAh, which makes some sense. In addition, the Dash Charge technology used for fast charging will be 25% faster than the 3T, which is a welcome considering the increased battery capacity.
Other than these, the OnePlus 5 is expected to keep the same 5.5-inch display screen, but don’t be surprised if the resolution stays at 1080p for the base model of 6GB/128GB and probably QHD for the 8GB/256GB variant. The Snapdragon 835 SoC will also be used to power the phone and software-wise, you can expect the latest Android Nougat to run the show.
