The leaked images reveal that the smartphone will boast a dual-camera setup and there will be no headphone jack.
OnePlus 5 is reported to launch this summer and with this leaks about the upcoming device is reaching a new high. Now, new live images of the OnePlus 5 has leaked online, which gives a glimpse of the upcoming smartphone.
One of the two leaked
images show dual-camera setup at the back and the dual LED flash sits right in the middle of the two lenses. The smartphone might boast a metal unibody look with no antenna bands visible at the back panel. At the right, one can find volume rockers, while at the left there will be power on/off button.
The second image shows the bottom of the device, which sports a USB Type-C port flanked between two speaker grilles. Interestingly, there is no headphone jack, which could mean that OnePlus could ditch it in favour of USB Type-C headphones. If this is true, then OnePlus will join Apple, HTC and bunch of other manufacturers which now opting for a USB Type-C port for headphones.
However, these images look completely different from the ones which were leaked earlier. The previously leaked image shows antenna bands running across the top and bottom of the device, while there was a single flashlight placed just beneath the dual-camera setup. So, we suggest you take this report with a grain of salt and wait for some more concrete information about the OnePlus 5.
Meanwhile, OnePlus has partnered
with DxO, the company behind DxOMark benchmark, to enhance the photography experience of the OnePlus 5. Although, the company did not reveal the details about the partnership, but it will surely help the company to improve overall camera performance of the upcoming flagship smartphones.
Recollecting some previous leaks, OnePlus 5 will run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU. The smartphone is reported to boast a Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which contradicts previous rumours predicting a Quad HD display for the upcoming flagship device. The screen size will be of 5.5-inch. The device will be backed by a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
It is also reported that it will come with a bigger 3600 mAh battery (Evan Blass leaked a 4000 mAh non-removable battery). Interestingly, similar to what we saw on OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus is likely to go with a front-facing fingerprint scanner at the front. OnePlus is also expected to introduce the new Dash Charge 2.0.
