OnePlus
The next flagship killer from OnePlus is coming this summer , the Shenzhen-based company has indeed skipped the number ' four' in its naming, choosing instead to call it the OnePlus 5. The company confirmed the launch period to The Verge and company CEO Pete Lau wrote in a Weibo post that the phone will come with a ' big surprise', hinting at the dual camera stack the OnePlus 5 is rumoured to come with.

Over the past few months, multiple leaks and rumours have revealed a tentative spec sheet of the phone. It is expected the phone will sport the latest flagship Snapdragon 835 processor. All its previous phones have launched with the latest and the fastest Snapdragon processor and it is unlikely OnePlus will compromise on this front.

Additionally, some rumours claim the phone will stick to the 6GB RAM offering as with the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3, but yet other rumours claim it will come with 8GB of RAM. On the storage front, the phone could launch with 64GB and 128GB offerings although there is buzz that a high-end 8GB RAM/256GB storage variant in the works.

The company confirmed the launch period to The Verge and company CEO Pete Lau wrote in a Weibo post that the phone will come with a ‘big surprise’, hinting at the dual camera stack the OnePlus 5 is rumoured to come with.

The most interesting aspect of the phone is of course the rumoured dual camera setup. Conflicting reports have pegged the setup either as vertical or horizontal. India Today claimed the phone will sport a vertical setup but a new Weibo source, Kumanato Technology claims the phone will have a horizontal setup instead, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus. The rumour mill claims the resolution will be a whopping 23 megapixels, but that is not confirmed.

Despite rumours of a 2K display on the OnePlus 5, it is likely that the phone will continue with the 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display.

The company is also tipped to infuse the phone with the latest version of its proprietary Dash Charge technology, which allows the phone to charge quickly. A bigger 3,500mAh battery is rumoured to be in the OnePlus 5, a minor bump from the 3,400mAh in the OnePlus 3T.

L eaked spec sheet apart, a lot of questions remain unanswered. Will OnePlus finetune its all-metal unibody design? What about the 3.5mm headphone jack? Will it be the first OnePlus phone to sport water resistance?
