Following OnePlus’ confirmation that the OnePlus 5 is coming this summer, the company’s CEO, Carl Pei, allegedly teased the upcoming smartphone. According to Suhant Mehta, a Twitter user, the company’s CEO shared an image of the phone’s back via his official Instagram account as part of an Instagram Story. Now, in order to prove this, Mr. Mehta shared two images of the OnePlus 5 that Carl Pei teased via an Instagram Story, though both images are extremely blurry and are not revealing all that much info.
As you can see, these two images do confirm that the phone will ship with a dual camera setup, a horizontal dual camera setup, despite what some leaks have been suggesting. Now, do keep in mind that this phone is hidden behind a case, a rather thick case it seems, so we don’t really get to see its design. The second image reveals that an LED flash will be placed next to the two camera sensors, presuming these images are legit, of course. That’s pretty much all the info that these two images have shared, as the device has a case on it, and the images are really not the best, so we don’t really get to see all that many details. Now, according to previous rumors, the OnePlus 5 will be made out of metal, though one leak suggested that the device will sport a metal + glass design.
The OnePlus 5, aside from its metal build, is expected to ship with a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display, 6GB or 8GB of RAM (depending on which rumor you opt to believe in), and 64GB / 128GB of native storage, quite probably non-expandable storage. Two 12-megapixel shooters will, reportedly, ship on the back of the OnePlus 5, and the device will sport a battery larger than 3,000mAh. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the OnePlus 5, and on top of it, you’ll get the company’s OxygenOS skin, of course. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 will be included here as well, and a 3.5mm headphone jack will be making a comeback. The device will be announced in the coming weeks, quite probably in June or July, so stay tuned.
