OnePlus Five rumored to have dual-edge display, 256GB storage option and 23MP rear camera

OnePlus Five rumored to have dual-edge display, 256GB storage option and 23MP rear camera
Word out of Korea this morning suggests that the next OnePlus handset will be named the OnePlus 5 and will feature a dual-curved edge screen. Now, you might be asking yourself if you slept through the OnePlus 4. But as other rumors have mentioned, OnePlus is expected to leap straight from the OnePlus 3T to OnePlus 5. One possible reason is that the number "4" is considered to be bad luck in China with a "death" reference.

The rumored OnePlus Five will reportedly capture the look of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Speaking of Samsung, because the manufacturer is receiving every last Snapdragon 835 chip coming off the line, OnePlus has to make the same choice that others have before them. Either delay the project until the new chip becomes available to all, or use the Snapdragon 821 chipset to power the phone. Considering that the OnePlus 3T already employs the Snapdragon 821 SoC, we wouldn't be surprised to hear that the next model won't see the light of day until much later this year.

The OnePlus 5 is rumored to feature a ceramic body, similar to the Mi MIX. A 23MP rear camera will adorn the phone, with a 16MP selfie snapper in front. A 4000 mAh battery will keep the lights on, and the device will come with a Type-C USB port. Toss in  6GB to 8GB of RAM (the current model already sports 6GB of the stuff) a new 256GB storage option, and this could be the next OnePlus handset.

With lack of any verification, we would take this story with the proverbial grain of salt. The latest speculation does match up with a previously leaked OnePlus 5 rumor that we passed along to you back in December.

Are we surprised?? The amount of stuff you can do with Touchwiz, dual curved display its the whole package. No wonder Huawei trying to copy how samsung devices look with the same style home button and dual curved display, now One Plus is following Samsung.

They don't matter. Bad updates that takes forever and customer support. I had the first one and OMG i returned it because of those 2 reasons alone, so don't tell me i don't know what I'm talking about because i do people.

I'm still confused on the relevance of this comment because you said you had the 1st one. The OnePlus One? If so, how relevant is your comment about the state of the customer support and software updates, when the company has released the OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3, and OnePlus 3T since then. It's been years since the original OnePlus One. I personally had the OnePlus 3 and never had any problems at all. I got updates too pretty quickly. Then again, I don't think there were too many major updates when I had it.

Vivo also skipped V4 because 1+ and vivo,oppo belongs to same group But OEM like Xiaomi, lenovo used '4' in their lineup

I'm more looking forward to the Xiaomi Mi 6 than the OnePlus 5, but both are welcome alternatives to the skew of overpriced mainstream flagships we have this year.

and it also coming with dual edge display, bigger prices than ever and unlike O+, Xiaomi is not offering international warranty and service support to their customers. so, for me it's not option anymore (after mi3, redmi 1s, Mi4i, and Redmi Pro, i have learned my lession...and that is: do not throw your money away, you are not that rich to buy cheap things. and that goes to xiaomis flagships...150$ worth redmi phone will allways be nice choise, but to give more for Xiaomi device it is madness)

Lg should price their mobile just like one plus with razr thin margin, then only they can capture the market from Samsung and other oem.

they are not trying to grab market share, they are running for profit. just see Sony, loosing market, but first time after a while they are not in red anymore....and it's with all that overpriced, nothing to talk about devices...

They skipped the 4 because the Oneplus 3T can be considered the Oneplus 4 Not because of China bad luck!

Sony did the same thing, but then came out with the Z4 tablet only.

They've used 4 before. They've just 13 before too. 4GB of Ram and 13MP cameras on multiple phones. Idiots, that's what they are. Look samsung skipped the Note 6 and screw themselves on the Note 7. DONT SKIP NUMBERS!

LG said they would never do curved displays :D Like I said its a matter of time. Samsung did it, followed by the Xiaomi, Huawei now One Plus and even Iphone later this year if the rumours are correct.
