Remember all those OnePlus 5 leaks that suggested a vertical horizontal camera setup? Now you can safely brush them aside as OnePlus has revealed that its upcoming flagship will feature a horizontal camera setup. In a new teaser for the OnePlus 5 launch, the company has finally shown the design of the smartphone, and it is identical to the leaked renders that surfaced earlier this week. As rumoured, the OnePlus 5 will have dual cameras on the back.
In a tweet posted on Thursday, OnePlus gave a close glimpse of OnePlus 5 for the first time and just like we said on the basis of leaked images, the teaser also suggests that the design elements on the smartphone closely resemble the ones on iPhone 7 Plus. After the leaked renders surfaced the Internet, there were many comparisons being drawn between the upcoming phone and Apple flagship, which might also be why the company chose to show the phone from a slightly different perspective in the teaser.
However, the antenna lines and the horizontal dual camera setup have already caused people on Twitter to accuse OnePlus of directly lifting iPhone 7 Plus design for the OnePlus. Irrespective of the design, OnePlus smartphones are known for their powerful hardware and this is why the upcoming flagship will likely be judged by consumers more on the basis of price point and performance. The teaser also mentions “dual cameras. clearer photos,” pointing to the USP of the smartphone.
As per the officially available information, we know that the OnePlus 5 will be launched globally on June 20 and in India on June 22. Notably, the phone will be made available for purchase exclusively through Amazon India on June 22 itself.
The company has confirmed that the smartphone will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, bear a front-facing fingerprint sensor, and feature a camera developed in partnership with DxO. The company also teased a camera sample showing excellent low light performance.
The source code on Amazon India teaser page has suggested that the phone will come with 8GB RAM and a separate leak has suggested that the phone might cost around EUR 550 (roughly Rs.) in Finland.
