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

14

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).
