With smartphone manufacturers lining up their premium flagship releases for the year, the Chinese OEM OnePlus is said to be working on its next-generation flagship as well.
The new flagship to be called as OnePlus 5 is expected to take the stage later this year for its official unwrapping. As leaks never seem to detach its string around a flagship unit, we already know a few details on the supposed OnePlus 5 specification table. A new leak however depicts a different outline showing a wallpaper of the flagship with the company’s tagline ‘Never Settle’ imprinted in bold letters.
The fresh leak comes from none other than the popular tipster Evan Blass who has put a 1920×1080 resolution wallpaper that has black molten lava with orange and red shades in the outline. If we go by the image it could mean that the upcoming flagship might come with a full-HD display like other OnePlus devices. Further, the ‘dark’ design on the wallpaper could hint a black colour variant that OnePlus might bring on its new flagship.

In another leak, Android Police’s David Ruddock quoting OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei put out a tweet that reads, “@getpeid I hear OnePlus could have a dark announcement some time soon. That it might even be as Black as Midnight?” Commenting on Ruddock’s post, Pei replied with a GIF of wolves howling on a full moon night.

As OnePlus has not shared any official word on its new flagship smartphone, the new leak leads to a list of speculations. It could either mean that the OnePlus devices will get a new ‘Black’ colour variant or the alleged OnePlus 5 might be launched with a ‘Midnight Black’ variant.
Besides this, rumours earlier claimed that the alleged OnePlus 5 will come with high-end specifications. Reports suggest that the device will come with a dual edge curved display. The phone is expected to feature a 16-megapixel front-facing selfie camera and a 23-megapixel rear camera. The smartphone is also said to run on Google latest OS Android 7.0 Nougat.
