OnePlus CEO Pete Lau is confirming that his company is indeed working on the next flagship smartphone, but not much has been revealed as is typical of the manufacturer.
Allen Ngo,

OnePlus is infamous for its advertising technique of trickling down as little information as possible over time through pictures and social media to build hype amongst consumers. The latest is an illustrated teaser image showing that the Chinese manufacturer is hard at work on the rumored OnePlus 5 smartphone. It was previously reported that the company will likely skip the name "OnePlus 4" and that the true OnePlus 3 successor would make its official debut sometime in June for a launch this Summer.

Exactly what the new mainline OnePlus 5 will carry remains largely unknown. Its use of the 10 nm Snapdragon 835, however, is almost certain. Other features such as 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM with up to 256 GB of internal storage depending on the SKU are possibilities. The manufacturer may decide to stick with the native FHD resolution instead of opting for QHD to save on costs. Existing rumors also point to dual rear cameras as such a feature is becoming increasingly common on mainstream and high-end smartphones.

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.
