OnePlus 5's Design Confirmed In First Official Render

After several weeks of teasers, OnePlus has seemingly confirmed the design of its upcoming flagship by sharing the first official render of the OnePlus 5. In a tweet sent just minutes ago, the company's official Twitter account once again reminded consumers of the June 20 launch event that's set to be streamed globally and reveal all technical details of the successor to the popular OnePlus 3T. The image itself shows the OnePlus 5 with a black matte finish and details the specifics of its primary camera setup that the company already accidentally confirmed to be of the dual-lens variety. As evidenced by the promotional render that can be seen above, the main camera system of the OnePlus 5 will consist of two horizontally arranged lenses situated in the top-left corner of its rear panel and accompanied by a dual LED, dual tone flash. The back plate of the handset also shows no sign of a fingerprint reader, indicating that the scanner will instead be embedded into the physical Home button on the phone's bottom bezel.

The render also provides a glimpse of what's either a power button, volume up key, or the top side of a volume rocker located on the right edge of the device's case, with some previous leaks providing conflicting information regarding the placement of the OnePlus 5's physical buttons. Finally, the latest promo is accompanied by a message that reads "Dual Camera. Clearer Photos." This particular tagline was already uncovered on a number of occasions and will reportedly also be used on the official retail packaging of the upcoming Android flagship. Apart from being the first OnePlus-branded device with a dual-lens camera system, the OnePlus 5 is also likely to ship with software developed by imaging company DxO Labs, as the BBK Electronics-owned phone maker previously confirmed that the Boulogne-Billancourt, France-based firm participated in the development of the device.

Other key specs of the OnePlus 5 include Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, 8GB of RAM, and a 5.5-inch Full HD display panel. The Shenzhen, Guangdong-based consumer electronics manufacturer is expected to continue teasing its latest flagship in the coming days, so more details on the thereof will likely follow soon.
