OnePlus 5 has already been in the news even though it’s predecessor i.e. OnePlus 3T is still probably the best phone for the price. The device has been again in the news for another interesting reason where a report from India Today has now confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will come with a dual-camera setup at the back. Although the exact purpose of the secondary camera is not confirmed yet, but the image shared by India Today reveals a vertical dual-camera setup at the back.
The report also adds that OnePlus might retain the design and focus more on the specifications. Recalling the previous rumours, it is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset along with an 8GB of RAM in the 128GB of variant while the one coming with 64GB of internal storage will pack 6GB of RAM. We can expect Android Nougat out-of-the-box and some reports claim that OnePlus might ditch the metal for ceramic to build their next flagship device. In terms of optics, the latest rumours contradicts the previous rumour of the device having a 23-megapixel rear camera along with a 16-megapixel shooter at the front. However, we warn you again as these rumoured specifications can change anytime before the device is actually out. OnePlus 5 is expected to land in Q2 2017, maybe couple of months down the line to be precise.
OnePlus have had a great run in India earlier with its OnePlus One and recently with the OnePlus 3T, so irrespective of the price the device is expected to do well in the Indian market. Also, we expect OnePlus to continue with its pricing strategy even though it will take more bucks to actually make OnePlus 5. Moreover, the dual camera setup at the back will now open more competition for OnePlus 5 in the name of iPhone 7 Plus, Mi 6 etc.
OnePlus won a lot of hearts with the OnePlus 3 and 3T, can it do with the OnePlus 5?
