Now that the HTC’s U11 flagship phone is official, the internet will surely be filled up with the upcoming OnePlus 5. Last week, we saw massive leaks about the phone suggesting specs and design of the phone. And yes, the hot topic across the internet is the smartphone’s design.
Speculations are over the moon that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will feature a dual camera setup at the back. Some concept renders suggested two vertically placed cameras at the back, while some of them have shown horizontal setup. While there’s no official confirmation from the company just yet, here’s a prototype image of the phone.
Do make a note that it’s not the OnePlus 5 by any means, but the design language would be similar to the final version of the phone. Smartphone brands build various prototype units of an upcoming design and later on decides which one should be the final version. One such image of the OnePlus 5 has leaked by Android Authority.
Sans the dual camera setup at the back, one would easily claim that the device as OnePlus 3T. It has got the same chamfered edges along with same antenna band design. The image, however, says that the phone will have a vertically placed dual camera setup. This will take us back to the first image of the phone that surfaced online, which was allegedly claimed to be a fake one.
That said, the frontal part of the phone is not shown in the image, and it may feature a bezel-less screen with 1080p resolution. There might be dual camera setup on the front as well. The rumour also says the possible launch of the phone will happen in June itself and not beyond that. Also, the phone will cost $649 in the US (approx. Rs. 42,000) due to the premium materials used to construct the handset.
The OnePlus 5 is said to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 835 SoC, two 16MP cameras at the back, Android 7.1.1 based Oxygen OS, and a 3600mAh battery will fuel the phone. Some of these specs are based on the AnTuTu leak, while some of them are based on earlier leaks.
As said earlier, the image posted above seems to be a real one, but it’s a prototype image of the OnePlus 5, which means that the design will be different in the final product.
