While OnePlus 5 official unveiling is drawing closer, leaks are pouring in abundance revealing the design and alleged specification of the flagship. This time a leaked live of a prototype has surfaced online.
The images of the OnePlus 5 prototype leaked on Chinese social media Weibo which was later obtained by PriceRaja, suggest that the new flagship will feature a vertical dual rear camera setup with dual LED flash. If we take a closer look at the freshly leaked live image, it appears to be different from the one posted by Android Authority earlier this week.
While the previous leaked live image revealed a prototype sporting dual camera setup with LED flash placed below, the latest leaked image shows off a virtual dual rear camera setup with dual-LED flash embedded in the middle. Besides, the antenna lines on the back are now missing. The new OnePlus 5 prototype image also shows the bottom of the device with dual speakers and USB Type-C port. However, the traditional 3.5mm audio jack is nowhere visible, which indicate that OnePlus could replace the audio jack with the USB Type-C port for headphones. This leaked prototype images do look realistic, but it should be taken with a pinch of salt until OnePlus brings its new flagship.
Earlier rumours have suggested that the OnePlus 5 could feature Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chispet. It is tipped to sport a 5.5-inch full HD (1080×1920 resolution) display and run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The device is said to pack 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and a 3600mAh battery.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer recently announced its partnership with DXO, a software company known for its DXOMark camera benchmarking test. OnePlus said that it has ‘teamed up’ with DXO to enhance the user’s ‘photography experience’ with their upcoming flagship, OnePlus 5. However, the question here arises is whether DXO will work on the hardware ‘components’ for the device camera or it will just put DXOMark to test the camera quality.
