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.
