OnePlus 5 officially teased by CEO Pete Lau
If you are a OnePlus lover and waiting for the OnePlus 5 then we have some good news for you. After the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi 6, everyone is eagerly waiting for the launch of the successor to the OnePlus 3T. According to previous reports, it is expected the OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 5 instead of the OnePlus 4.

Up until now, there have been no confirmations from the company on any upcoming smartphone launch, but CEO Pete Lau has put to rest all the speculations and has confirmed that the company is working on something 'big' aka OnePlus 5.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau dropped a teaser of the latest device on his Weibo account. Although his post doesn’t clearly name the device as OnePlus 5, but that was an obvious speculation to be made. According to the post, executives and team at OnePlus are working round the clock on a new device. The post was shared on May 1 which coincidentally also is the World Labour Day.

The handset is said to sport a sleek design with thinner bezels and could feature a mammoth 8GB RAM. The OnePlus 5 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and house a 4000mAh battery along with company’s trademark Dash Charge support.

Much like the last year’s One Plus 3T, the OnePlus 5 is expected to be available in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB, both expandable up to 256 GB. It will run on Android Nougat 7.0 based Oxygen OS custom UI.

As for the camera, the OnePlus 5 is tipped to sport a 23-megapixel rear camera with features like optical image stabilization, zoom, and flash. At the front, the OnePlus 5 is expected to sport a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

Why no OnePlus 4?

If you are wondering how from OnePlus 3T to OnePlus 5, then just to update you "four" moniker as it is considered unlucky in China.

Which explains why OnePlus didn’t launch OnePlus 4 which might have been at the receiving end of the popular belief. This also helps the speculation why the next flagship, expected to launch in first half of this year, is dubbed as OnePlus 5.
