OnePlus Five Confirmed for Summer 2017
OnePlus will launch its feature-rich OnePlus Five smartphone this summer. In a report published by The Verge, the company has confirmed that the phone will be launched soon. Last year OnePlus launched its high-end OnePlus 3 smartphone. The feature-rich smartphone received positive reviews from technology experts.
OnePlus is based in China and number 4 is considered unlucky in China. For this year, OnePlus has skipped version 4 and after OnePlus 3, the company will launch OnePlus 5. However, OnePlus said that the company hasn’t named its phone OnePlus 5 due to superstition but because this will be fifth smartphone from the company in the series.
Media reports also suggest that OnePlus 5 would offer some interesting features and a few firsts in the segment. OnePlus 5 would offer dual camera on back as per confirmed report published by Indian publication house India Today. The front camera could be 16 megapixel while the specification for back cameras isn’t clear yet.
If the fast-growing Chinese smartphone marker continues with its success story from OnePlus 3 onwards, it can easily cement its position in high-end smartphone segment.
