Remember a few months ago we reported that OnePlus’ next flagship would not be called the OnePlus 4 but the 5? That news has come true, and now, though the company hasn’t mentioned yet the specific date of its new smartphone’s release, it has been confirmed by The Verge that their next flagship named OnePlus 5 is going to be released this summer.
Why OnePlus 5 but not 4?
As the last version of the phone was named OnePlus 3t, therefore, following the trend it would be OnePlus 4, but that’s not going to happen. There are two reasons behind the phone being dubbed as OnePlus 5 instead of calling it OnePlus 4. The first reason is, in Chinese communities people always consider the number 4 as an unlucky number. And secondly, many of OnePlus employees consider a former NBA player, Robert Horry, as their favorite player of all time who used to wear a number 5 jersey during the game, therefore, the company chose the number 5 for their next flagship.
Officially, the specifications of the phone are not yet clear but rumors indicate that OnePlus 5 will be coming with a 5.5” display which has a QHD resolution, a Snapdragon 835 chipset along with a 6GB or 8GB of RAM. However, as the company has already confirmed the next flagship release, therefore, we believe that very soon OnePlus will also disclose the phone’s specifications as well.
So, in this situation, staying patient will be the best way to see that what kind of charisma OnePlus 5 brings with it to amaze tech lovers.
