Smartphone maker OnePlus is releasing its rumored flagship successor, the OnePlus 5, this summer. The company posted to Weibo recently with the tagline, “Hello 5,” all but confirming that the smartphone will be called the OnePlus 5. The previous version was the OnePlus 3, but OnePlus has avoided calling their phone the OnePlus 4 likely because the number is considered unlucky in Chinese culture as it is pronounced similarly to the character meaning “death.”

The image also includes the words “Hey Summer! Give me five!” as an indication of a summer release date. There have been no confirmed statements about a specific day or month, but it’s likely that the phone will be out by the end of July.

News about the OnePlus 5’s purported specs remains sparse, so rumors are all we have to go on at this time. At the moment, most believe that the OnePlus 5 will feature a 5.5-inch QHD display and the Snapdragon 835 chipset. In addition, it will likely have dual-cameras at the rear and a larger 3600 mAh battery.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
