The OnePlus 5’s spec sheet surfaced yesterday on Weibo (Chinese social network), along with some additional info about the device, and now the phone surfaced on both OppoMart and GearBest. Now, if you take a look at those listings, you’ll notice that both sites are using a recently leaked render of the device as a placeholder, and chances are that those images are fake, at least according to the latest info. If yesterday’s rumor is to be believed, the OnePlus 5 will sport a dual camera setup, but with a horizontal orientation, not a vertical one.
In any case, OppoMart says that the device will sport a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, along with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB / 128GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage. Two 12-megapixel shooters will be placed on the back of the device, while an 8-megapixel snapper will come included on the front side of the OnePlus 5. OppoMart also says that a fingerprint scanner will be included in the package, and that Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the phone with the company’s OxygenOS skin. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel this smartphone, and OnePlus’ Dash Charge 2.0 will also be a part of the package. That being said, OppoMart also says that the phone will cost $449, though that’s probably a placeholder price as well. In addition to everything we’ve mentioned, the source also claims that the OnePlus 5 will start shipping at the beginning of next month.
GearBest, on the other hand, agrees on most of the specs OppoMart shared, though GearBest claims that the device will ship with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while it also mentions a 23-megapixel rear-facing camera (second rear-facing sensor was not mentioned), and a 16-megapixel front-facing snapper. So, as you can see, there are some differences between these two listings, and it’s also worth mentioning that GearBest did not mention the device’s price. Now, some of you might wonder why the OnePlus 5 naming instead of the OnePlus 4. Well, the number 4 is actually considered to be unlucky in China, so it is possible, and quite probable, that the company might skip the OnePlus 4 naming, but who knows. In any case, the company is expected to introduce their new flagship next month, so stay tuned, as chances are we’ll get to see a ton more rumors and leaks in the near future.
