The upcoming OnePlus 5 may not come with a QHD display or a 23-megapixel rear camera as has been rumored recently. According to a recent post on Reddit, the upcoming smartphone may well ship with a standard 5.5-inch 1080p screen that has been a staple of all flagship OnePlus handsets since the OnePlus One. The handset will also apparently sport 8GB of RAM and carry a 3,580mAh battery. The device will also apparently have curved edges on both sides, although, recently-leaked images seem to suggest otherwise. The Redditor also says that instead of the rumored 23-megapixel primary camera, the device will actually sport a dual-camera module on the rear.
While there's no way to verify the legitimacy of most of these claims, there might actually be some amount of truth to that last piece of info, given how a recent listing on AnTuTu seems to suggest that the device will, indeed, ship with dual 16-megapixel cameras on the back. It's worth noting here that although OnePlus isn’t really expected to officially either confirm or deny these rumors any time soon, the device is actually expected to launch in about a couple of weeks’ time, so it shouldn’t really be long before the official spec-sheet becomes public. Even though these claims contradict directly with some of the earlier rumors, the post does seem to confirm that the upcoming device will, indeed, ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC as expected.
It will be interesting to see if the upcoming OnePlus 5 will indeed have a dual-camera module on the back like recent flagships from Huawei and LG, or if earlier rumors about the 23-megapixel rear shooter will hold up in the end. Meanwhile, the AnTuTu listing also suggests that the upcoming OnePlus flagship will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, which is certainly good news. The AnTuTu benchmark, however, seems to suggest that the OnePlus 5 will ship with 6GB of RAM and have 64GB of internal storage, although the aforementioned Redditor seems confident that OnePlus will actually sell a 8GB RAM model, even though the company has been testing a 6GB variant thus far.
