The OnePlus 4 will likely be skipped according to the model number of an unknown OnePlus device. Meanwhile, leaked photos of the case seemingly suggest dual rear cameras for the upcoming OnePlus flagship.

OnePlus may be skipping the unlucky number 4 for its eventual OnePlus 3 successor.

The information comes from a model number leak through the Chinese Radio Regulation Authority website where it lists an unannounced OnePlus smartphone as model A5000. In comparison, the original OnePlus 3 uses the model number A3000. The source provides no other information about the smartphone aside from compatible radio frequencies and LTE.

Outside of the official documents, leaks have also appeared showing the supposed outer case of the OnePlus 5. From there, sources have drawn conclusions on what features the next OnePlus smartphone may bring including the possibility of dual rear cameras. Note that the images have not been verified and should be taken with a grain of salt.

The mainline OnePlus smartphones have traditionally shipped with high-end specifications for mainstream prices. Its next entry has been rumored to feature a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 5.5-inch QHD display, and 6 to 8 GB of RAM. It remains to be seen if the Chinese manufacturer will incorporate super-narrow bezels or 2:1 displays like the LG G6 or utilize a more traditional approach to save on costs.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
