Sketches of OnePlus 5 display dual cameras in back and front

Sketches of OnePlus 5 display dual cameras in back and front
This morning we showed you a teaser from OnePlus that pretty much confirms that its next flagship killer will be given the moniker of OnePlus 5. Last Thursday, there was a bit of confusion when OnePlus posted the number 4 on social media which led some to conclude that the company was not giving in to superstition and would call its next model the OnePlus 4. However, a second look revealed that the image also showed two lightsabers which indicated that the post was done to celebrate Star Wars day (May the "Fourth" be with you). Today's teaser also indicated that we will see the phone released this summer.

We also took notice of a sketch found on weibo that is supposed to show the OnePlus 5. The sketch reveals that the OnePlus 5 will carry a front-facing dual camera, and a rear facing dual camera setup with dual flash, as well. The phone will sport a ceramic body, if this art work is legit, and a Type-C port is found at the bottom of the device. Also on the bottom is where the only visible antenna lines are found.

The latest rumored specs fpr the OnePlus 5 include a 5.5-inch AMOLED display carrying a 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 835 chipset featuring an octa-core 2.45GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 6GB or 8GB of RAM will be inside along with 64GB/128GB of native storage. Keeping the lights on is a 3580mAh battery that will recharge 30% faster with Dash Charge than the juicer on the OnePlus 3T. A fingerprint scanner will be embedded in the home button.

Whether this sketch is based on fact or fiction is unknown. Thus, we do suggest that you take this story with a grain of salt.

Why do these "concepts" look like designs from 5 years ago? I'm not settling for that

it feels like the OP3 just landed. Maybe because of the 3T. The cycle seems to be too short. Every year flagship cycles are getting ridiculous.

Come on now. Dual front front and back cameras? Phone makers are running out of ideas quick and just throw whatever pointless gimmicks on the wall to see what sticks. Don't be surprised when you start to see screens added to the back of phones.

Imo the real "flagship killer" is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (SD625 Version). Great performance, decent camera, superb battery life for just 150 USD!!!

And this would be the same "never settle" company that also claimed they would have stereo speakers, which turned out to be a lie, the display problem that they said wasn't a problem until they said it was a problem, and the same company, that, if you need to return the phone, and have to jump through hoops to get it back to the manufacturer, and HOPE you get it back! No thanks!

Wow...that top portion around the camera is just reeking of Pixel's design cue. Yeah, the drawing claims it's ceramic instead of glass...but only an idiot would truly think this wasn't somewhat inspired by the Pixel's half-glass back design.

Oh, if you want to see oneplus kill flagships don't wait for the oneplus 5. Just check out the 3t vs s8 some real world comparison. At this point they should pretty much replace "flagship killer" with "next gen flagship killer". XD

I mean honestly for the features and value, why would anyone "Need" to purchase a flagship. One of the few features that the OnePlus line didn't have was Hi-Fi audio, but now they just opened access for the AptX and AptX HD codecs to allow higher quality and Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth wireless. There's not many features they are missing that would make you miss out on buying a flagship. So personally, I think the OnePlus line is a flagship killer. I didn't miss my HTC 10 when I bought the OnePlus 3. The OnePlus 3 had great battery life for me, great camera, super fast charging, great design, etc.

It is a flagship killer, without the actual blood ofcourse. ;) I have the oneplus 3T, & Galaxy S7, and my wife has the S7 Edge. The S7 just got the nougat 7.0.1 update, and it's still has memory issue, if you open more than 6 or 7 apps, and try to go back to the first ones, it will start all over, and it still lags from time to time. I bought the oneplus 3T 2 months ago, and man it has 7.1.1, 16 megapixel front camera and 16 megapixel back camera, the battery lasts me 2 days, it never uses the full 6 GB of ram, and the apps are always in the way manner, never restarting. And did i mention it's blazing fast??

Why do you need 6 or 7 apps opened at the same time? Is there any benefit other than saying hey look at my phone. I've seen lag on desktop pc and laptops when there's a bunch of crap opened at the same time.

On a usual day at the offices, I have opened the dialer/phone, Chrome, Gmail, Nine (exchange), WhatsApp, Hangouts, Poweramp and Skype for business. While I don't use them at the same time all the time, I do use them regularly during the day. So it's very nice they stay open in the background for me to switch quickly to them.

Really? Gmail/Hangouts/Keep/Chrome/Slack/Spotify would be an easy 6 apps that need to stay in for a bunch of people, substitute keep/hangouts for whatever other messanger and notes you want.

I'll take Samsung flagship support over OP2 support. The OP2 has been left to die.

Doesn't seem like they are going bezel-less or curved edges...I'm a little disappointed tbh...
