OnePlus 5 name officially confirmed, will have a camera made in partnership with DxO

The OnePlus 5 will be the official name of the company's next flagship, and it will put the focus on a brilliant camera that will be made in partnership with DxO, another company that focuses on photography testing. The news comes from OnePlus staff member diegohnz and was posted on the official OnePlus Forums.

While we have previously seen OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei tease the OnePlus 5 name, it is the first time that we are aware of that the name 'OnePlus 5' is officially confirmed. The OnePlus 5 comes after the OnePlus 3T, and if you are wondering where is the OnePlus 4, the answer is simple: OnePlus is a company based in China and the number 4 in China is associated with bad luck.

OnePlus 5 will be capable of capturing some of the clearest photos around


The OnePlus 5 will also put the focus on a brand new camera. Early rumors project that the OnePlus 5 will come with a dual-camera set-up, but further details are scant. Chances are that this will be an iPhone-like setup with a regular, wide-angle camera, and a more zoomed-in, telephoto-like secondary cam.

"We’re happy to announce that we have teamed up with DxO to enhance your photography experience with our upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 5. DxO is perhaps most well-known for creating the defining photography benchmark, the DxOMark. They’ve got years of imaging experience and expertise, both for professional cameras and for smartphones," OnePlus said.

Looking back at the OnePlus 3T, we had a phone with a 16-megapixel primary camera, and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter that were some of the best around. We're looking forward to learning more about the OnePlus 5 and with so much smoke, there sure must be a fire of announcements coming up soon.

If it does , then it'll officially become the second best phone of the year until the iPhone 8 arrives.

you make me laugh. The iPhone certainly won't be the best, maybe a bit better than the galaxy s8 but it will fall short against the note 8. Note 8 and oneplus 5 will crush that overpriced piece of junk

I implied that it would be the third best when the iPhone arrives. The best is the Galaxy S8 at the moment. and this could be second is what i meant.

Lol it's not touching the GS8. The GS8 is the Note 7 exploding apology swan song to the world to save their reputation and it shows, Incredible device.

No one is going that all out in awhile.

I'm skeptical but if this phone ends up with a really good camera, I may have to get it.

Same, it's the only thing that lacks to make it the perfect phone

Would be hilarious to see it get ranked high on DxO yet fall behind in a blind camera comparison like the Pixel...

I wonder if this rumor of the price being higher than usual is true, if it is anywhere near $600 or more then is i still a flagship killer or can they justify it with meaningful changes.

If the Camera can compete with the Samsung S8 & LG G6 then this may be my next mobile.

They should begin with testing OP3t.
Second, why team up with camera TESTING company? They are no experts in MAKING cameras.

As if 8GB RAM wasn't enough to wow us..........

6gb of ram is more than enough

8 GB didn't wow me at all. 6 GB is already overkill, let alone 8. That much memory is completely useless

Don't be so sure about that. Remember, OnePlus officially supports rooting and even custom ROMs. Not so far fetched to see Windows 10 on ARM run great on such future proof hardware...

If you would run a Windows version of sorts on such a device, then okay 6 or 8 would be more advisable. Especially in desktop mode a la Samsung Dex. But running Android on it and using it as a smartphone, overkill.

What DxO will do is help in tweaking the brightness, sharpness, dynamic range, low light, and contrast and give the phone a high score on DxOMark hehehe

One more phone to have higher score than iphone... So far we have :

- S6, S6E+, S7, S8, N5
- Pixel
- Htc10, U11
- Z Force
- P10
- Z5, X, X Perf, X Compact, XZ

Almost sure : Pixel 2, N8, XZs, XZ Premium, XA1 Ultra, XA1, Mate 10, V30, Z2 Force
