OnePlus next ‘flagship killer’ OnePlus 5 is already under much talks over the past few months and now a leaked render has surfaced online revealing the design of the phone. The purported image of the new flagship OnePlus 5 has been posted by India today that unveils the device featuring a vertical dual rear camera setup.
The report further says that the new handset might retain the design similar to its predecessor OnePlus 3T. The phone will have aluminium brushed metal frame and round edges like the OnePlus 3T. However, the fine antenna lines that run around the edges in the predecessor is missing on the alleged OnePlus 5. As seen on the purported image, the power button is located on the with the volume rockers on the left side, just like the previous models. The render only reveals the back side of the alleged OnePlus 5 and gives no clue on which sort of charging port the device will use, whether it will have the 3.5mm audio jack (as most flagship are ditching the audio port).
Rumour mill previously churned out leaks citing that the next flagship will sport dual-curved edge display. The OnePlus 5 is tipped to feature a 5.5-inch 2K (1080×2048 pixels) display and RAM will be beefed up to 8GB. The phone is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor paired with Adreno 540 GPU. The phone might run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. Rumours also suggest that OnePlus might ditch metal and opt for a ceramic build for the next flagship. As for the camera, the new leaked render refutes the earlier leak reports that suggest the phone sport a 23-megapixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation), and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. With all said and done, this are just rumours which should be taken with a pinch of salt as OnePlus has not shared any official word yet.
