New OnePlus 5 leak shows us dual camera module on back, reaffirms hardware rumors


As you probably well know, the OnePlus 5 is just around the corner. Leaks are coming out, teases are being dropped left and right, and everybody is expecting a device that will take our breath away with a mix of quality hardware and aggressive pricing.

While leaks keep suggesting that the handset will have a dual camera module on its back – and probably even on its front – we still don't have anything concrete to go on. Yet, another render has popped up, which allegedly shows us what the OnePlus 5 will look like from behind. And yup, a dual camera module is clearly visible.

The leak comes from a Weibo post – a Chinese social media that looks like a mix between Twitter and Facebook. It reaffirms rumors about the phone being powered  by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, an overkill 8 GB of RAM, and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. The post has the following picture attached:


As far as how legitimate it is – OnePlus isn’t shy about putting tons of RAM into their devices – the OnePlus 3 came with a whopping 6 GB of RAM, which is still not being matched by major manufacturers around the globe. As for the big battery – OnePlus is known for taking customer wishes into account, so making a slightly thicker device just so that it could house a bigger juice box wouldn’t be out of character.

Now, how would the dual camera module be used? We can only speculate at this point, but it’s most probably either a system like the one found on the Huawei P10 (two similar sensors with one shooting in black and white and used to collect depth information) or the iPhone 7 Plus (where one of the cameras has a telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom and the Portrait Mode).

So, the sketches was old and useless. The camera setup and back of the phone are different than the sketches. Also looks a lot like Huawei Mate 9. At least in camera setup. Nothing similar with OnePlus X. For me - no ceramic back - no deal. Everyone can choose fr him shelf. Cheers.

What is your petty self smoking? OnePlus can only dream that the OnePlus 5 will make a dent in Galaxy S8's popularity.

Only issue is that it'll probably be like its predecessors and not have support for Verizon or Sprint here in the US.

Pretty decent looking vertical dual-camera setup. Doesn't need to look hideous like some last-minute implementation, Ive could learn a lot from this...

This is not a leak, it's a mockup on Weibo in order to attract attention.
