[TechLeaks] OnePlus 5 Launch this Summer

OnePlus has recently posted a teaser for its upcoming flagship smartphone. The company shared an image on the Chinese social network Weibo confirming : the release date and the name of the device.

The tagline reads “Hello 5” and confirms that the smartphone will be called the OnePlus 5 and to note that it won't be called as the OnePlus 4. The company has decided to skip the number four, since it is considered to be unlucky in China due to the fact that it is associated with death.

Along with the image, OnePlus also wrote “Hey Summer! Give me five!”, which is enough for us to believe that the flagship will be revealed during the summer months. There’s currently no word on exactly when that might happen, but we do expect the OnePlus 5 will see the light of day at the end of June or somewhere in July.

As of now, OnePlus hasn’t confirmed any other details regarding the device. We have come across a few rumors claiming that the OnePlus 5 will feature a 5.5-inch display with Full HD or QHD resolution, and will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 8 GB as RAM. It’s also expected to sport a dual-camera which might be spectacular and a bigger 3,600 mAh battery, which should get fully charged a lot faster (by 25 percent thanks to Quickcharging).
