OnePlus 5 renders confirm dual-camera setup, but no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

The highly-anticipated OnePlus 5 is the talk of the town these days. With probably less than two months left until the official reveal, OnePlus 5 is already the hottest smartphone that hasn't even been announced yet.
While reports and speculations talk about better camera and processor than the predecessor, we now have more accurate information about the unannounced OnePlus 5, based on some renders that have just emerged online.
The images that were secured by India Today Tech have been sourced from persons who have knowledge about the smartphone and have seen it in action. Obviously, we're talking about prototype units, but since we're so close to the official unveil, we believe OnePlus won't be able to change too much design-wise.
First off, the renders reveal the fact that OnePlus chose to include a dual-lens camera on the back side. The absence of a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera suggests the Chinese company will adopt a more innovative solution.
Perhaps OnePlus 5 will have the fingerprint sensor hidden under the display. Speaking of which, the “flagship killer” is likely to use a 5.5-inch display with unknown resolution, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The amount of RAM will probably be set to 6GB, and we're expecting OnePlus to allow customers to choose between 64GB and 128GB storage variants.
Design-wise, as anyone can see from these renders, OnePlus 5 doesn't really bring anything new to the table. The most noticeable change is the lack of antenna lines that appear on the OnePlus 3T's back side.
However, as we mentioned earlier, the design of the OnePlus 5 is not yet final, which means the Chinese company might make small changes before the June reveal.

Not impressed at all... It's like a Nissan GTR, impressive performance that'll rival a Ferrari but... Squeezed in a package that resembles a Prius... Aye... Meh...! And a word of advise for all OnePlus owners and 'loyalists'; don't bring that thing with you on a date... It will have a severe negative impact on the other... They'll think you're a bloody geek or some Al' Cheapo...!!! Always bring you "A" Game to the game, fellas...! Galaxy "A" comes to mind...! G'Day!

Lmfao... like if you brought a Galaxy you'd look more appealing, priceless! That's hilarious... and likely false.

Actually, according to a recent study; you're supposed to bring an iPhone...! Samsung smartphones come a distant second...! And I, for one, would rather have a smartphone that comes first in productivity and second in its 'appeal'...! G'Day!

If you think that the GT-R resembles a Prius, then you may have to get your eyes checked.

I don't think showing our smartphone to the date is considered as a necessary step. I think a date in which the two participants have to pick up their phone for something other than an important call is a bad date already. I am not ashamed to show my OP3 to anyone. I'd rather be considered a cheapo than have a bloated slow phone with poor battery(Galaxy) or an OS from the stone age(iPhone). But in the case I use(simple matte black case), unless she is a phone nerd, she won't be able to know which phone I have.

If you think a Nissan GTR resembles a Prius, you're older than I thought. Ok, it's not a Ferrari, but I think it looks awesome and badass. And it wouldn't have a negative impact on my dates nor would they think I'm cheap since I don't date dumb chicks. It does help the women in my country aren't as shallow as in some other countries.

I bought my One Plus because I like it. It is simple and powerful. It's exactly what I what looking for. It round house kicks everything else in terms of performance except for the S8 and even gives it a run due to the ram.

You kidding me? It's a matte black 3T with the legs Photoshop'ed again on top of the camera lens. This is a click bait

The fact that there's no fingerprint scanner on the back does not suggest that it will be built into the screen. It suggests that it will be below the screen, like dozens of other handsets INCLUDING the OnePlus 3T. Don't just parrot what you read on other sites when covering a story. India Today got it wrong. And now you have too.
