The OnePlus 5 has been making rounds in the rumor mill for quite some time now, and though the device’s release date remains a mystery, the specs and features of the device have begun leaking in a steady stream. Interestingly, a slate of new rumors and statements from OnePlus itself has brought some new light on the upcoming flagship killer. Needless to say, things are starting to get pretty interesting.
Rumors about the OnePlus 5 have suggested that the device would be a significant upgrade over the upstart smartphone manufacturer’s current flagship, the critically acclaimed OnePlus 3T. Due to the company’s reputation, speculations were high that the OnePlus 5 would be so well-designed and well-equipped, it would most likely blow the current smartphone champions out of the water. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, however, teased that the upcoming flagship killer would not be able to match Samsung’s Galaxy S8’s most iconic feature.
