New OnePlus 5 image shows vertical dual-camera setup with no antenna lines

UPDATE: Sorry, guys. The image here appears to be fake. Below is a version of it with the shadows enhanced to reveal that the camera area has been manipulated.
This past week, a OnePlus staff member posted a very interesting message on the company's online forum. The message, from OnePlus staff member diegohnz, stated that optical firm DxO was working with OnePlus to enhance the camera on the OnePlus 5. The combination of this message and the release of certain teasers showing the number "5" make us feel pretty comfortable calling this model the OnePlus 5.
The current OnePlus model is the OnePlus 3T. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the reasoning behind OnePlus' apparent decision to skip the number four, it has to do with a Chinese superstition. In the country, saying the number four sounds too similar to the Chinese words for death and disease. We've been on top of the naming issue ever since rumors about the phone started spreading last December.
We have seen various photos all allegedly revealing what the OnePlus 5 will look like. Some show a horizontal dual-camera setup on back, while others reveal a vertically positioned dual-camera module with the flash in between the two lenses. The latest image, which we came across today, has the latter design. It also looks cleaner than usual due to the lack of antenna lines, and a fingerprint scanner that will apparently be found embedded in the front-facing home button.
The latest rumored specs include a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. As you might expect, the top-of-the line Snapdragon 835 chipset is said to be driving the device. This would contain an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. We could see one variation of the phone with 6GB of RAM alongside 64GB of native storage, and another with 8GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage. When it comes to the cameras, the magic number is 16. We could see both snappers on back weigh in at 16MP, with a 16MP front-facing camera for taking selfies and handling video chats.
A June unveiling and release seems likely. Check in often for the latest on the OnePlus 5.
UPDATE: Here's an enhanced version of the image above. It appears that someone simply took a photo of a regular OnePlus 3 and cloned the camera.
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 16 MP front

- Battery 3300 mAh

Not even close to being as bad at the new pixel's design. Back design rating OP5=6/10 New Pixel=2/10 lol.

So the op5 just keep changing looks everyday. This should make the launch very exciting tbh. Keep everyone guessing, sort of like what the ip8 is doing this year too. Anyway, this should look better in marketing materials though. Especially the matte black version imo. Btw, i'm happy they are the only remaining few still doing metal backs. Dont care about inductive charging tbh as i've never really seeing its usefulness. I love durability.

It looks like the back is curved and I hope it is. Holding a phone with a flat back is uncomfortable to me.

If this is not fake, then those side & corner curves make me hopeful that OnePlus 5 might follow S8 like design.

Looks like a Nokia, whether that is a positive or not is up to you.

This is the new flagship killer with a price tag as high as big brands flagships (for example in my country S8 costs 660€) and that looks? Ok if they sell good then OP make a good game with you. If is was at half the price definitely it will be a good choice but now with 650 it isn't.

I don't know where you saw the $650 demanded for the One Plus 5. I saw in a later report the One Plus 5 listed at $450 in Oppomart online store.

It's hard to tell just from one picture, but the phone looks smaller than the OnePlus 3 in that picture. It probably isn't any smaller than previous models, but maybe the curved back is causing issues with scale.
