Apart from the launch date, there is also the first ever press render of OnePlus 5 that has surfaced online. The render has been posted by Android Police which gives a glimpse on the actual design of smartphone, contradicting some of the previous speculations regarding the design. As per the press shot the smartphone can been seen in black color, holding a horizontally aligned dual rear camera setup along with LED flash. On the front, we can see the smartphone sporting a 2.5D curved glass and a front camera sensor on the top.
OnePlus 5 was highly speculated to be holding a vertically aligned dual rear camera, which eventually doesn’t seem to be true. This falls in line with a recent leak where an alleged teaser image of OnePlus 5 cover indicated a similar horizontally aligned dual rear camera. The design of OnePlus 5 somewhat resembles to the iPhone 7 Plus where the dual rear camera setup is placed on the top right corner accompanied with a dual LED flash.
OnePlus has already confirmed that the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and has teamed up with DxO to provide the best smartphone camera ever. Talking about the rumours, there are reports which claim that OnePlus 5 will be able to shoot in Monochrome.
Also, the smartphone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch QHD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display along with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. However, the smartphone is highly speculated to launch in another variant with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage also. OnePlus 5 will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat which could be topped with Oxygen OS 3.0. There are also reports which claim that the smartphone will be packing a 3,300 mAh battery.
