OnePlus confirms the name of its next flagship phone, says it will launch it this summer

OnePlus has a certain reason for not naming its next phone OnePlus 4 (as this should normally succeed the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T). In China, the company's home country, 4 is considered an unlucky number that can mean death. Of course, some may view this as a silly superstition (including this very author, who was born on the 4th of March and has been alive for quite some time now), but, hey, it's OnePlus' decision, so we'll just have to respect it.
OnePlus hasn't confirmed anything else about its next-gen flagship. Rumors have it that the smartphone will feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, a whopping 8 GB of RAM (at least on some variants), up to 128 GB of storage space, and a 23 MP dual rear camera. It remains to be seen how much of this is true. Earlier today, we spotted a OnePlus 5 concept, but there's no way of telling if this is what the device will actually look like.
Are you excited about the upcoming launch of the OnePlus 5?
sources: The Verge, OnePlus (Twitter)
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 16 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2457 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 3300 mAh
Calling it "4" doesn't go too well with that company's name. The same would happen if they were called TwoPlus.

What would've happened if the brand's name was ZeroMultipliedBy? Then all it's phones would have been 0. Basically it means, they won't exist!!!!!

I have heard it is EXTREMELY unlucky to pass over the number 4 if you have an established pattern of successive numbering. It can mean a SLOW & PAINFUL death as well as death to your family.
