OnePlus CEO says OnePlus 5 will be
The OnePlus 5 is officially launching sometime this summer, and we already know that it's going to be a very powerful smartphone - thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. We also know that the upcoming handset features a rear camera made in collaboration with DxO, has a fingerprint scanner on the front, and (most likely) won't ditch the standard 3.5mm headset jack.

Now, thanks to OnePlus CEO and co-founder Pete Lau, we have yet another detail about the OnePlus 5. In a post made on Weibo (China's largest micro-blogging platform), Pete Lau suggests that the OnePlus 5 will be very thin. 

According to the translation of said post, Pete Lau "believes" that the OnePlus 5 "is the thinnest flagship phone." It's not clear if he talks about all flagship phones on the market, or just about OnePlus flagships. However, we can certainly assume that the OnePlus 5 will be thinner than the 7.35 mm OnePlus 3T (pictured above), thus becoming the company's skinniest high-end smartphone to date. The 6.9mm-thin OnePlus X doesn't count, since it wasn't a flagship model.

Pete Lau also seemingly says that OnePlus didn't have to make compromises related to the user experience in order to build a thinner device. Oh, and he's already using the new phone - but that's hardly a surprise.

Of course, until we know the phone's dimensions, we can't really compare it to the OnePlus 3T (or to any other flagship out there). We'll just have to wait and see exactly how thin the OnePlus 5 is once it's officially announced.
