Yesterday we saw Oppomart leak some of the supposed specs for the new OnePlus 3T ahead of today’s announcement, but it seems someone jumped the gun over at OnePlus. The company temporarily pushed the site live but has since pulled the landing page. Instead, OnePlus has replaced the OnePlus 3T landing page with a clever little airplane game that requires you to collect blue blocks and speed around the globe.

OnePlus team talks updates, what’s new with 3T, and more in Reddit AMA






OnePlus started out as a scrappy underdog, at least in appearance, but has certainly succeeded in making a name for itself, especially with the quite well received OnePlus 3 and 3T. To help answer any questions that fans may have had about the new handset, and how things are going at OnePlus in general, the company recently took part in a Reddit AMA.




OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, Aaron from the ROM team, Jonathon from Customer Services, Steven from Logistics, and Caio from the EU team took part in the AMA. Here are some cherry picked best bits:
Q: Will the OnePlus 3 and 3T be updated to Android 7.0 or 7.1?

A: “We are initially shipping with 7.0, 7.1 was released midway through development and integrating it would have delayed the update.”
Q: Update cycle for OP3 and OP3T?

A: “Both devices will be on the same update schedule following Nougat.”
Q: How is the merger of Oxygen OS and Hydrogen OS shaping up?

A:we are able to move at much faster pace than before while maintaining two different products with the same team.”
Q: Why launch the OnePlus 3T 6 months after the initial launch of the 3?

A:We had the capability to improve the product, wanted to try it out, so we did.”
Q: Can I charge the 3T with the 5V/3A charger for my current Nexus 5X without any risk of damage?

A:You’re free to use 3rd party chargers, but the dash charging will only kick in with the official cable and adapter.”
Q: Does the 3T’s front camera come with PDAF or not?

A: “The front camera on the OP3T is fixed focus.”
Q: Why not improve the 3T’s rear camera?

A: We didn’t have any improvements ready to go.
Q: Why not make it to be able to put 1 sim card and an sd card insted of the second sim card?

A:What’s the pain point that SD card solves? We now have a 128GB UFS2.0 version that performs so much better than any external storage could.”
Q: What are your thoughts on disgruntled devs and their statement that they won’t support the 3T with kernels or roms?

A: “Dev support is something we’re serious about, and it’s an area where we really put our money where our mouth is. Honestly, we just love the custom ROM scene. It’s why we are one of the few that allow for rooting/installing custom ROMs without voiding warranty. It’s also why we always release kernel sources and devices trees super early, as mentioned in the OP.
As for devs who are upset about the 3T – we hear you, we understand where you are coming from, and it’s something we were prepared for. We have something planned (that we can’t announce just yet) to address this. Just hang on a bit. We got you.”
Q: Why did you not put 3400 mah in the OP3? Apparently it fits.

A: We were testing the reliability of a higher density cell. The tests weren’t ready in time for OP3. Quality is very important, especially when it comes to battery. It’s better to be on the safe side.
Q: Why not support Daydream?

A: Daydream was announced after the product design of the OnePlus 3, so we did not design is with Daydream compatibility in mind.
Q: Do you guys see yourself releasing multiple product lines in the near future?

A: Maybe when we’re 10x our current size. Still a lot of work to do better before product line expansion.
Q: What do you guys feel like you’ve learned from the OnePlus X and 2?

A: To think more, and reflect more. To better know ourselves and our situation, and do the right thing. In other words, to find our own true north, and not to have noise such as the market or competition lead us.

We’re seeing a bunch of new phones at MWC, but phone news is happening in other places too. A couple of new rumors out of Korea shed some light on the OnePlus 5. If you’re wondering about the OnePlus 4, you’re not crazy, they did indeed skip 4. It could be because the number 4 is bad luck in China or that they consider the OnePlus 3T to be the fourth model.
The report suggests the OnePlus 5 will take a few cues from the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It could have a dual curved display. The phone could also have a 16MP front camera and 23MP rear shooter, 6GB (or even of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a ceramic body. The processor still up in the air. OnePlus would have to wait for the Snapdragon 835 or go with the 821.
Are you looking forward to the OnePlus 5?

New OnePlus ‘Never Settle’ Teaser Hints At Dark & Hot





A new teaser from ever-present leaker, Evan Blass, provides the catch line from OnePlus – Never Settle – in a new picture, which Blass assures, is not simply an existing wallpaper for current devices. Blass, accompanies the image with the statement “You know what this means, don’t you?” which might be hinting that OnePlus is close to announcing their new model, which could be the OnePlus 4 or the OnePlus 5. Current rumors point to the latter as it is understood that 4 is an unlucky number. Of course, this might not be a new model arriving and instead could simply be for a new color of the existing OnePlus 3T.
With the OnePlus 3T packing 6GB of RAM, rumors have the new OnePlus 4(5) upping the ante to 8GB and expanding the storage to 256GB. OnePlus seems to take great pride in their RAM size, so seeing 8GB on a next-generation model would not be too much of a stretch. There are reports that the new OnePlus smartphone may have a ceramic body, which not only adds an aesthetic quality, but also an added element of danger, due to the increased possibility of it slipping from your hand. Other rumors have the new OnePlus smartphone coming with a 23-megapixel camera, replacing the 16-megapixels currently on offer with the OnePlus 3T. The current model is already using the Snapdragon 821 – and therefore the suggestion is that the next smartphone will come equipped with the newer Snapdragon 835. Although, OnePlus could go with an entirely new chipset. It is hopeful that OnePlus will stick with the AMOLED display, especially if they stay with a Full HD resolution.

OnePlus is a relatively small Chinese company, but is one that is dedicated to building high-quality smartphones at a reasonable price. An ethos which has meant that the company has gathered a dedicated group of followers and in turn, a subset of customers who prefer to stay with the OnePlus brand when upgrading their smartphones. Which is not surprising really as OnePlus devices do offer a lot in terms of specifications for the price. While this latest teaser is still a mystery, with hot, molten, and black, seemingly in play, it looks like exciting things may be on its way for the next OnePlus smartphone.

Before Midnight Black OnePlus is doing everything right lately




Daniel Bader is the Managing Editor of Android Central. As he's writing this, a mountain of old Android phones is about to fall on his head, but his Great Dane will protect him. He drinks way too much coffee and sleeps too little. He wonders if there's a correlation.



The amazing story of OnePlus figuring out how to make great products people want.
A strange thing has happened between mid-2016 and today: OnePlus stopped screwing up.
The company that was notorious for poorly-considered marketing campaigns and forcing customers to wait months in virtual lines for new phones has improbably and wholeheartedly corrected course over the past nine months, turning into, at least from the outside, a well-run and confident machine. After releasing the OnePlus 3 in June of 2016 — a phone that our Andrew Martonik called "a downright great smartphone" — the company has begun manufacturing its phones in India to meet growing demand, expanded its profitable and surprisingly good accessories line, and ironed out its logistics enough to ship phones to order for the first time in its existence.
Then, in November, OnePlus surprised everyone by releasing an upgraded version of its then-three month-old flagship phone, and was among the first third-party manufacturers to release Android 7.1.1 only months after just hitting its target for a Nougat update.
A year ago...

OnePlus is hardly recognizable, in a good way.
A year ago, a list this breathless and expansive would have seemed impossible to anyone looking at how the company was being run. A mass exodus (or a planned consolidation, depending on who you speak to) of its software development team made apparent that the company was, at times, chasing its own tail, trying to decide how to best manage its explosive growth on a shoestring budget. But the company bore the criticism relatively well, admitting fault when necessary while doubling down on the core, early-adopter audience that gave it life back when it debuted in 2014.
Today, the company regularly releases software updates for both of its 3-series phones, and as I sit here with a newly-released Midnight Black OnePlus 3T running Android 7.1.1 Oxygen OS Open Beta 4, if you must know), I am simply floored at its uniformity, at how utterly cohesive and mature the thing feels, and how OnePlus managed to figure out how best to sell its products — that is, by doing simple and good better than any other smartphone manufacturer.
With release of the limited edition Midnight Black OnePlus 3T, it's clear the company's marketing machine is in rhythm with its product and logistics divisions, eking out as much goodwill and return business during the natural year-long product cycle before the whole thing begins again.
Midnight Black


Yes, it's merely an updated color of an existing phone, itself a minor refresh of an existing phone, but the Midnight Black OnePlus 3T is a really stunning piece of hardware. Moreover, after using it for a few days, it's hard to imagine OnePlus ever falling considerably behind the competition again in terms of industrial design or build quality, nor — despite my own public concerns — reverting to a poor state of Android software quality.
Indeed, the worst criticism one can level against OnePlus's software is that it too quickly abandons its aging product lineup — the OnePlus 2, released in 2015, isn't getting Nougat anytime soon — but the same can be said of Samsung, LG and many companies.

Using the OnePlus 3T is a joy; it just works. Performance is superb, and the latest beta (which will eventually roll out to all users) addresses the touch latency problems that were evident on early Nougat builds. And there are some subtle things that I really like: the haptic engine is tuned just perfectly to my taste, even at its default setting. Tapping away on the keyboard evinces the exact right feedback response. The front fingerprint sensor, which doubles as a home button if you want it to, is incredibly fast, as is launching the camera, which I have done dozens of times to use the excellent rear sensor.
Using the OnePlus 3T is a joy; it just works.
Of course, the 5.5-inch 1080p panel isn't the most accurate or brightest out there, and it's framed by large top and bottom bezels that, after using the LG G6 and Galaxy S8, make the phone seem oversized and awkward in one hand. I have no doubt OnePlus plans to address this — as do most manufacturers with any aspirations of greatness — with the 3T's successor, but the design will look increasingly dated as the year rolls on. Still, this is a good phone, mainly for the fundamentals. And for that black.
I've heard the term "murdered out" to describe the exact shade of black that has become increasingly common on phones like the Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7, and, now, the OnePlus 3T, and I think that's fair. This thing isn't pitch dark — it shimmers in the light — but it carries the smooth, aggressive confidence of a much more expensive product.
Come a long way


Being just a regular OnePlus 3T in a new shade is one thing; the other part of the equation is the beta build I'm running, which should be rolling out more widely in the coming weeks.
I feel like I could hand the OnePlus 3T to anyone and not worry about the learning curve.
Open Beta 4 is still based on Android 7.1.1, but adds some major improvements to the launcher, which is quickly becoming my favorite manufacturer skin around. It now has a Pixel Launcher-like app drawer, which you swipe up from the bottom which, combined with the widely-loved 'swipe-down-for-notifications' gesture, brings it as close to perfect as I would want. It also supports icon packs, and comes with two excellent ones pre-loaded — I highly recommend Dives if you aren't using a OnePlus 3/3T — that just keep everything looking fresh and clean.

Here's the thing: I feel like I can hand this phone to someone who has never used Android before and feel confident in his or her ability to just pick it up and get to know the operating system. OnePlus has its fair share of gimmicks hidden in the settings — why would you want to draw an 'O' to activate the camera when double-pressing the power button does the same thing much more intuitively — but they're few and far between, and don't distract from the first-on experience.
A year later


I didn't expect OnePlus to get to this point so quickly; I thought it had a couple more years of growing pains yet. But I'm incredibly encouraged by what I'm seeing, both from an end user and company culture perspective.
It appears to have found some much-needed equilibrium to balance out the frenetic momentum that kept it afloat until now. The fact that the Midnight Black OnePlus 3T is just $479, undercutting many other high-end Android phones by more than $200, further sweetens the pot. As Alex Dobie pointed out in this smart piece, it seems that OnePlus plans to depress its handset prices indefinitely, even if it takes a loss on the hardware, to further other aspects of the business.
[These peripherals, like bags and headphones], say a lot about the growth of OnePlus as a brand, and hints at how it might make the bulk of its profit further down the line. The company has admitted that it makes very little profit on sales of phones like the OnePlus One, 2 and 3. That's no surprise when you're shipping devices with cutting-edge specs around the $400 mark.
But look at the accessories and gear sections of OnePlus's store. It's packed with much higher-margin items like branded power banks, earbuds and chargers, not to mention bags and clothing. By ensuring every customer feels like they belong to the OnePlus family, they're more likely to fork out for more expensive accessories either at the point of purchase, or further down the line. (The 3T also has a OnePlus Community app preloaded, which plays into that strategy.)
The phones, the community, the exclusivity, fosters a user base that makes people want to invest further in the brand. That OnePlus is a much more coherent, self-assured company with a working logistics arm that ships phones on time to match its ambitious sales goals is a bonus, and one that puts it in good stead for 2017 and beyond.

Is this really the OnePlus 5?












The OnePlus 3T was one of the best smartphones of 2016. We’re looking forward to seeing what its successor, the rumored OnePlus 5, will bring to the table this year. Although we’re still a few months away from its launch, a first render of the device has allegedly been leaked by India Today.






The render only shows the back of the device, revealing just a dual camera setup. Just like the OP3T, the rendered device appears to feature a metal body and a slightly curved back that should make the device feel more comfortable in the hand. The design is very simple and doesn’t stand out from the crowd, which is something we’re used to seeing from OnePlus. Other than that, the render doesn’t really reveal anything else.

So far so good, but there are some details that make us doubt the authenticity of the render. Putting the render next to literally the first image that shows up in Google Search when you search for “OnePlus 3 black” reveals that the OnePlus 3 and the alleged OnePlus 5 are almost identical in shape.

(In the image below we punched up the contrast/lighting settings of the leaked pic to bring up the details.)



Sure, this similarity could be because OnePlus would keep the same general design for the OnePlus 5. But it’s more likely that someone simply took an OP3 image and doctored it to look like something new.



The most suspicious part of the leak seems to be the camera. Looking at it closely, it seems like someone used the clone tool in Photoshop to duplicate the OnePlus 3’s camera lens, with a few adjustments to make it look different.



Then there’s the fact that OnePlus tends to make significant design changes from one generation of its flagship to the other. It would be surprising to see such a highly iterative design for the OnePlus 5, especially given that OnePlus has already released a second edition – or an “S edition” if you will – of the OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T.

We might be overly paranoid here, and we will be the first to admit if that’s the case with this render. But until we see more evidence to support it, we’ll file it in the “highly suspicious” folder.

Let us know what you think!

OnePlus 5 specs spilled in new leak







The OnePlus 5 is the next Android phone you should be excited about if you haven’t bought into the Galaxy S8 frenzy. It’s supposed to match the Galaxy S8’s specs, and even offer a few improvements. But it’s also meant to be a lot cheaper, which is what makes these OnePlus phones so exciting.
A new leak from China reveals more details about the OnePlus 5’s design and specs, but you might not like everything this leak reveals.


A Weibo account called Kumamoto Technology is the source of this new leak. The user says previous OnePlus 5 rumors that said the phone will have a vertical dual lens camera are false. The phone will have a dual-lens shooter on the back, but it’ll be horizontal like the one on the iPhone 7 Plus.
Furthermore, the report says the fingerprint sensor will be placed on the front, similar to the OnePlus 3T. If accurate, this means the OnePlus 5 won’t have an all-screen design like the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. The source also said the phone will ship with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although an 8GB/256GB version might not be out of the question.
When it comes to battery size, the OnePlus 5 should feature a 3,600 mAh battery, complete with fast charging. The handset may or may not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, the report says.
A different Weibo leaker found by My Drivers says the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip, the same chip found in the Galaxy S8. The handset will apparently feature a Full HD display, and should launch by the end of June.

OnePlus’ Teaser Re-Confirms Summer Launch For OnePlus 5









OnePlus had confirmed a couple of days ago that their new flagship, the OnePlus 5, is coming this summer, and this China-based company has just released a new teaser for the device. If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see a OnePlus 5 teaser that OnePlus shared via its official Weibo (Chinese social network) profile. This teaser actually came with a “Hey Summer! Give me five!” caption attached to it.
Now, this teaser is obviously re-confirming that the phone is coming this summer, and in addition to that, it also confirms that we’re looking at the OnePlus 5 here, and not the OnePlus 4. As many of you know by now, OnePlus introduced two flagship smartphones last year, the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 3 arrived in June 2016, while the OnePlus 3T landed later in the year, and the two devices were actually quite similar. The OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T sported the exact same design, down to measurements, but the OnePlus 3T packed in a more powerful SoC, larger front-facing camera sensors, larger battery and a sapphire glass protection on its rear-facing camera lens. Having said that, it seems like OnePlus is looking to skip the OnePlus 4 naming, mainly because the number ‘4’ is considered to be highly unlikely in China, which is why many Chinese OEMs never release anything that contains that number in the title.

Now, based on various rumors and leaks, the OnePlus 5 will probably sport a dual camera setup, and if rumors are to be believed, we’re looking at two 12-megapixel shooters on the back of the device. An 8-megapixel or a 16-megapixel camera will be included on the front side of this smartphone, and Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the device with OnePlus’ OxygenOS placed on top of it. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC will fuel this smartphone, and a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display will probably be included as well. The OnePlus 5 will pack in 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 64GB / 128GB of native storage. The alleged OnePlus 5 sketches actually surfaced on Weibo earlier today, so you can check those out as well if you’re interested

Leak: HydrogenOS-Powered OnePlus 5 Sports 8GB Of RAM





The OnePlus 5 will launch this summer, OnePlus confirmed recently, and the phone’s partial specs just surfaced it seems. If you take a look at the provided image down below, you’ll get to see a screenshot which was allegedly taken using the OnePlus 5, and this screenshot actually reveals some of the phone’s specifications. Now, before we start, do keep in mind that the phone that this screenshot was taken with is running HydrogenOS, which is OnePlus’ very own Android skin which the company ships on top of Android in China, while OxygenOS is their international skin.
That being said, this screenshot seemingly reveals that the OnePlus 5 will ship with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which is something that earlier rumors suggested as well. In addition to that, the device will come with Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box, if the provided info is to be believed. That’s more or less all the info that this screenshot reveals, but we did see a ton of rumors when it comes to this phone, so we kind of know what else to expect. Having said that, it’s possible that OnePlus intends to release the OnePlus 5 in two RAM variants, 6GB and 8GB RAM models are a possibility, though truth be told, it’s also possible that the company plans to release a 6GB RAM variant only. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor will almost certainly fuel the OnePlus 5, and the device will sport two camera sensors on the back it seems, chances are we’re looking at two 12-megapixel snappers here.

In addition to two 12-megapixel shooters on the back, this phone is expected to sport an 8-megapixel or a 16-megapixel camera up front, and a 3,000mAh+ battery will be included on the inside, chances are it will be closer to 3,500mAh. The device will most likely ship with a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display, and a front-facing fingerprint scanner will probably be included in this package as well. We’re still not sure when exactly will the OnePlus 5 land, but you can expect it to drop in June or July. OnePlus said ‘this summer’, but having OnePlus 3’s release date in mind (it launched in June), chances are that its successor will also land in June, or July at the latest.

OnePlus 5 Sketches Leak, Vertical Dual Camera Setup In Tow





OnePlus had confirmed that the OnePlus 5 is coming this summer, and the phone’s alleged sketches have just surfaced. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see two sketch images which are, allegedly, showing off the upcoming OnePlus 5 flagship. These sketches actually look similar to a recently leaked render of the device, though there are some differences there, so we’re not exactly looking at two identical designs.
As you can see, in these images, the OnePlus 5 sports two camera sensors on the back. We’re looking at a vertical dual camera setup here, and a dual-LED flash is placed below those two camera shooters. Those two camera sensors and the LED flash are protruding on the back a bit, it seems, and the upper portion of the phone’s back is made out of ceramic. The device shown off here is made out of metal, and the alert slider is back, and it’s once again placed on the left, along with the phone’s volume up and volume down keys. The power button is located on the right-hand side of this smartphone, though we don’t get to see it in these images, as the right side of the phone has not been shown here. The device also sports a dual camera setup on the front, and the 3.5mm headphone jack is also a part of this package, and it is placed on the bottom of the device, though it’s one the left side this time around, while it was placed on the right side of the phone’s bottom on the OnePlus 3(T). A Type-C USB port is also visible in the second image down below, and the speaker grill is placed right next to it. You’ll also notice that the device offers really thin side-bezels, and its display seems to be flat.

That being said, the OnePlus 5 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD display, along with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of native storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel the phone, and two 12-megapixel snappers will probably be included on the back of the OnePlus 5. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the phone, and on top of it, you’ll get OnePlus’ OxygenOS UI.

The OnePlus 5 launches this summer, and this might be our first blurry look at it







We were already suspecting that the OnePlus 5 will be launched at some point this summer, but a new report finally confirms it. The Chinese smartphone maker will indeed have a new OnePlus handset in stores in the coming months, and the name of the device is OnePlus 5. On top of that, the first blurry image showing the alleged new OnePlus handset has also leaked.

















OnePlus has confirmed to The Verge that the OnePlus 5 is going to be the next flagship handset in its lineup.
The phone is called OnePlus 5 because the company wanted to avoid the number four, which is unlucky in the country. The company did not say when it’ll announce the handset but did tell The Verge that the phone will arrive this summer.
A blurry image showing the reflection of a smartphone that has a horizontal dual lens camera on the back was teased by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. The image seems to be an ephemeral Stories message that Pei may have posted on Instagram.


Several OnePlus 5 reports claimed that the phone will have a dual lens camera on the back. Some of them said the camera will have a vertical orientation, although more recent ones said the camera will be horizontal.
There’s nothing to prove the handset in the image above is the OnePlus 5. But then again, why would Pei post such a mysterious image if not to drive up OnePlus 5 speculation?

The OnePlus 5 might be even faster than the Galaxy S8







We already know that OnePlus will launch a new affordable flagship smartphone this summer, and we already know the phone will be called OnePlus 5 — the company confirmed all that already. A variety of other leaks have also revealed the purported specs of the phone, and a blurry image coming from a OnePlus exec offered us the first glimpse of what could be the phone’s dual lens camera. Unsurprisingly, the leaks continue with a first benchmark leak for the handset, which seems to indicate the OnePlus 5 will be slightly faster than the Galaxy S8.

Obtained by GSM Arena from a trustworthy source, the following image shows Geekbench scores for the OnePlus 5. We’re looking at 1963 and 6687 for single- and multi-core tests.
That’s in line with what the Galaxy S8 got when it comes to single-core performance (197, but a lost better than the multi-core score (6375) for Samsung’s new phone.
Image Source: GSM Arena
How is that possible given that the OnePlus 5 is expected to feature the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform that powers the Galaxy S8? Well, the OnePlus 5 might feature more RAM, and it’ll run a different version of Android 7.1 Nougat.
The Galaxy S8 already delivers a remarkable performance in real life tests setting a new standard for 2017 Android smartphones, and we can only expect the OnePlus 5 and every phone that will pack the same Qualcomm processor to match it. At the same time, recent performance comparisons with the iPhone 7 showed that the Galaxy S8 may be the fastest Android phone in town, but it still can’t touch the iPhone. The OnePlus isn’t likely to outpace the iPhone 7 in the same tests either.

OnePlus is teaming up with DxO to make the OnePlus 5’s camera better




OnePlus has announced that it’s partnering with DxO to improve the cameras in the upcoming OnePlus 5.
DxO is perhaps best known for the DxOMark benchmarking test that remains one of the most commonly cited metrics for camera performance on a smartphone (even though it’s important to remember that benchmarks never tell the full story), along with developing several pieces of professional photography software. But the company also has hardware experience in the DxO One, a well-regarded camera that slots directly into the Lightning port on an iPhone to offer improved pictures than the built-in camera.
OnePlus and DxO aren’t offering any details as to the nature of the collaboration, or even whether DxO is contributing to the hardware or software components of the OnePlus 5’s camera .A cynical-minded person could look at the partnership as OnePlus looking to ensure it scores highly on the DxOMark test — which OnePlus’s announcement does specifically call it out by name — but we don’t know that for sure.
We’ll presumably find out more soon though, given that the OnePlus 5 is expected to launch sometime this summer.

OnePlus 5 Shown In Yet Another Leaked Real-Life Image





Yet another real-life image that’s said to be depicting the OnePlus 5 has surfaced online this weekend on China’s social media platform Weibo. The photograph shows a device that’s seemingly identical to the one with a silver matte finish that was leaked earlier this week, giving more credence to recent reports about the upcoming OnePlus-made Android flagship. The handset depicted in the image boasts the standard OnePlus branding below a vertical dual camera setup with a standard LED flash located between the two lenses. The supposed OnePlus 5 also boasts a relatively clean rear plate with no visible antenna lines and rounded case corners – design features that were already suggested by several previous leaks.
The Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer recently announced that it’s been collaborating with imaging company DxO Labs to boost photo and video-taking capabilities of the OnePlus 5, though the camera shown in the leaked photo of the device that can be seen above likely wasn’t physically modified by the Boulogne-Billancourt, France-based firm. Instead, DxO Labs presumably helped OnePlus enhance the camera software of its upcoming high-end Android phone seeing how the French company specializes in imaging software. Finally, while the angle of the newly uncovered photo isn’t ideal, it still shows enough to indicate that the OnePlus 5 will boast a power button and a volume rocker on the left side of its case.

According to previous reports, the successor to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be powered by the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm’s first 10nm system-on-chip (SoC). Apart from the 64-bit, octa-core piece of silicon, the device is said to feature between 6GB and 8GB of RAM, as well as 64GB of internal storage space. It’s currently unclear whether the Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) will opt to release two variants of the device with different amounts of RAM, but regardless, the OnePlus 5 is expected to ship with a microSD card slot. According to industry insiders, the smartphone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, enhanced with the company’s OxygenOS user interface. Given how the OEM already confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will be officially announced in June, more details on the upcoming Android flagship should be available shortly.

There’s a new OnePlus 5 leak, and it looks nothing like the others







There’s something very peculiar about the OnePlus 5 flagship that OnePlus will launch at some point in the coming weeks. While we know its specs and features, as most reports agree on those, we can’t say the same thing about its design. We’ve seen a bunch of renders and actual photos of OnePlus 5 prototypes already, but they’re not telling the same story. A fresh new leak that claims to show real world use of a OnePlus 5 devices shows a brand new OnePlus 5 design.

Don't Miss Leaked iPhone 8 mold suggests device will be slightly larger than the iPhone 7
Posted on SlashLeaks, which found it on Weibo, the image below shows us a purported OnePlus 5 handset. Image Source: SlashLeaks
The phone has a dual lens camera placed horizontally, and antenna lines that remind us of the iPhone. Yes, it could always be a fake, considering that we have no way to verify this information.
A few days ago, a leak from China also indicated the phone will have a horizontal dual camera, which seems to be in line with a OnePlus 5 teaser coming from one of the company’s co-founder. A few weeks ago, Carl Pei posted a blurry image of a handset sporting a dual camera which seemed to have a horizontal orientation.
But most leaks that hit the web since then showed OnePlus 5 designs featuring a vertical dual rear camera on the back.
OnePlus did confirm that the camera will be one of the OnePlus 5’s main features, but that’s pretty much all we know about it at this point.
Considering the increased OnePlus 5 chatter, we shouldn’t be surprised to see OnePlus unveil the phone in the near future.

Leaked tests show OnePlus 5 is much more powerful than Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel







OnePlus will soon unveil the OnePlus 5, a handset that should generally offer features on par with the Galaxy S8, as it’ll make use of some of the same high-end components found in Samsung’s flagship. But the OnePlus 5 might actually be a lot faster than the Galaxy S8. A new rumor seems to show that the incoming OnePlus handset might beat the Google Pixel as well, which is still one of the best Android smartphones money can buy.

Don't Miss Leaked iPhone 8 mold suggests device will be slightly larger than the iPhone 7
The Pixel is getting old when it comes to components, so it’s not surprising to hear that the OnePlus 5 will be faster than Google’s phone. After all, OnePlus will equip the phone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip. But a new leak indicates that the OnePlus 5 will seriously outperform the Galaxy S8, which also has a Snapdragon 835 processor. A leaked benchmark found its way to TechRadar, revealing that the OnePlus 5 opens apps faster than the Galaxy S8 and Pixel XL.
Image Source: TechRadar
Whether it’s graphics intensive games (Real Racing 3, Modern Combat 5) or regular apps that you might use every day (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Gmail, Google, Google Maps), the OnePlus 5 generally wins, according to the leaked chart that shows internal test results for the handset.
It’s unclear whether the OnePlus 5 used in this alleged internal test had 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Also, even if the OnePlus 5 appears to comfortably win such tests, we’ll still have to wait for the handset to come out so we see how it performs in tests crafted to mirror real-life usage.


The OnePlus 5 won’t be able to copy the Galaxy S8’s best feature







We heard for a while that the OnePlus 5 will not be as cool as the Galaxy S8, and OnePlus CEO Pete Lau apparently confirmed on Weibo that the next OnePlus flagship won’t be able to compete against Samsung’s best new phone feature.

There’s no question that the Galaxy S8’s Infinity display sets the phone apart from anything available from the competition. Sure, the LG G6 also has a great all-screen display, but it’s the Galaxy S8 seems to be the winner when it comes to display design so far.
The OnePlus 5 will have a fingerprint sensor on the front, Lau said, which means the OnePlus 5 can’t also feature an all-screen design. It’s unlikely that OnePlus will include the sensor under the OnePlus 5’s display, given what we’ve heard about the phone so far. A recent report claimed the OnePlus 5 will be more expensive than its predecessors. That might be one other reason to buy the Galaxy S8 instead.
Interestingly, Lau posted his comments on Weibo from a OnePlus 5 device, according to the following screenshot, saved by GizmoChina.
Image Source: GizmoChina
A different OnePlus exec, who recently posted a blurry image of the OnePlus, teased on Twitter that the headphone jack will be moved to the other side of the phone. That’s top placement for the 3.5mm jack instead of the bottom, as it was the case before, Carl Pei seemed to imply.




Finally, OnePlus also posted a teaser on its official account that concerns color options for the upcoming OnePlus 5, including a multicolored version:










OnePlus is yet to announce a launch event for the handset.

Let's talk performance for the OnePlus 5





  1. Pete CEO Staff Member


    Hey everyone,

    Our mission has always been to share the best technology with the world. This starts with building a great product that performs smoothly. We do this by putting together the best combination of components and making them work together seamlessly.

    With the OnePlus 5, our commitment to this philosophy continues. We're proud to announce the OnePlus 5 will feature the Snapdragon™ 835 processor, which sets the foundation for smooth, powerful, and efficient performance. With graphically-demanding apps, for example, you'll notice how fast they load and how well they run.

    But choosing the right components is only the first step. You also have to optimize performance to create the best user experience. When we began developing the OnePlus 5, we envisioned a smartphone with flawlessly smooth performance. To illustrate how we made it happen, we'd like to share a bit about our process.

    One of the main areas we wanted to improve was touch latency. Our engineers tested why scrolling occasionally differed between phones. There wasn't a lot of precedent for them to work with – no benchmarks, no industry case studies to learn from. So we used a special high-speed camera to track screen movements and measure input speeds. As a result, apps respond quickly to your touch for a seamless user experience.

    We also wanted to improve the overall feeling of smoothness. To achieve this, our engineers added a feature to OxygenOS to better manage the way your apps perform. The apps you use most are ready to go when you turn on the OnePlus 5. Apps you rarely use are deprioritized and kept from affecting performance.

    These are just some examples, of course. But they illustrate how obsessively we pay attention to the details when optimizing the performance of OnePlus products. We're driven to perfect even the smallest aspects of our products. And when you get your hands on the OnePlus 5, we hope you'll notice the difference.

    Never Settle.

You can vote for the final OnePlus 5 box design if you have a Weibo account







It’s no longer a secret that OnePlus plans to officially announce its next handset, the OnePlus 5, in the very near future. However, the company continues to build up to that reveal with some more teasers. The latest one is allowing for some audience participation, if you happen to have a Weibo account.



The company is currently running a poll on China’s popular social media service that lets users vote for one of eight possible retail box designs for the OnePlus 5. As you can see from the eight candidates, OnePlus seems to really likes the colors of white and red for its phone boxes.






Each of these designs are actually quite striking in their own way, and we wouldn’t complain if the final choice came from one of these selections. However, beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, so you may feel differently. If you have a Weibo account, you can vote for your favorite box design at the link below.

Vote on Weibo






We should learn which design will be picked as the final retail box for the OnePlus 5 around the time of its launch, which is expected to happen sometime later this June. In the meantime, we want to hear from you on this matter. Which box is your favorite?

Exclusive: OnePlus 5 retail packaging leaked, confirms dual camera







OnePlus has already teased the camera prowess on the upcoming OnePlus 5 by revealing its partnership with DxO, makers of camera testing benchmark DxOMark. While DxOMark numbers mean a lot to some people, the true test comes when that phone gets in the hands of hundreds of thousands of fans. When that happens, folks will be seeing this message emblazoned on the side of the OnePlus 5 retail packaging: Dual Camera. Clearer Photos.













Our leaker has now put any doubt over the presence of a dual camera on the final OnePlus 5 to rest, by revealing what we’re told is the “official tagline” of the OnePlus 5. (We should note that we have heard from another source that “Focus on what matters” is also part of the OnePlus 5 messaging, along with the perennial “Never Settle”). As you may have seen yesterday, Weibo users are able to vote on the design for the front of the OnePlus 5 box.

We can only assume OnePlus has been pulling overtime on the camera software and image signal processing to back up the emphasis being placed on the OnePlus 5 camera. The side-by-side image teased recently from the OnePlus 5 highlights its lowlight camera performance, a traditional weak spot for mobile cameras.

If we are to draw a connection between dual cameras and clearer photos, it might not be too much of a stretch to presume the dual cameras are an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor for capturing additional detail, rather than a wide angle or zoom lens. We’ve seen a similar approach taken by Huawei in the past and more recently by the Essential Phone.






Most rumors put the OnePlus 5 display at 5.5 inches, the same as the OnePlus 3T. A recent teaser from the company hints that the OnePlus 5 will have a smaller footprint than the 3T, further reinforcing claims the front the of the device will have much smaller bezels than in the past. Some rumors claim there will be a dual curved display and I wouldn’t be surprised if OnePlus has tried to be the first to get an under glass finger scanner in place.

A Snapdragon 835 has already been confirmed, various RAM and storage configurations have been suggested but not confirmed, our source has already hinted that we might be up for a significant price hike, and OnePlus’ own design sketches show an interest in bringing ceramic back.

If OnePlus learned anything from the backlash it earned by omitting NFC in the OnePlus 2, a headphone port should be a lock, although Pete Lau recently stated he believes the OnePlus 5 will be the thinnest flagship phone, even thinner than others that (apparently) had to omit the 3.5mm port…





With most rumors pegging the OnePlus 5 launch in late June or early July, we don’t have long to wait. And with OnePlus being OnePlus, we’ll probably see more and more official specs confirmed and more teasers to keep us guessing as the date draws nearer.

OnePlus 5 teaser suggests horizontal dual camera setup




We’ve seen plenty of rumors, teasers, and leaks about the long-awaited OnePlus 5. The company most recently teased that the new device will be smaller than the OnePlus 3T.
The latest bit comes from Weibo where an image allegedly reveals the dual camera setup that would be arranged horizontally in the upper left corner.
The image also shows the antenna bands would be placed in two corners on the back of the display - upper left and lower right. This would come as a change from the two straight lines we saw on the OnePlus 3T’s back.
Other rumors suggest the OnePlus 5 might have 6 or 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage and a ceramic body like the Xiaomi Mi Mix. According to another leak, we will know more about the phone on June 15 when the official launch is scheduled.

Pete Lau Confirms OnePlus 5 Will Sport A 1080p Display





OnePlus’ CEO, Liu Zuohu aka Pete Lau, has just confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will sport a fullHD (1920 x 1080) display. The company’s CEO shared a screenshot of HydrogenOS which is running on top of OnePlus 5. For those of you who do not know this, HydrogenOS is also OnePlus’ operating system, and it comes pre-installed on top of Android on OnePlus’ smartphones that are sold in China. So, you can think of it as an equivalent to OxygenOS, limited to China.






That being said, this image was not compressed by Weibo (Chinese social network), accessing the full-size image is possible, and the image itself comes in a fullHD (1920 x 1080) resolution, which more or less confirms that the OnePlus 5 will ship with a fullHD display, just like its predecessor(s). You can take a look at the screenshot itself by checking out the gallery down below, the first image in the gallery is the screenshot of HydrogenOS’ home screen which runs on the OnePlus 5, and the second one shows off some EXIF info taken from that image, which confirms its resolution. This is not the first official confirmation that we’ve received from the company, however, OnePlus confirmed a while back that the OnePlus 5 will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, and that it will ship with a front-facing fingerprint scanner. The company also said that a 3.5mm headphone jack will be placed on the top of the device, well, one of their teasers did, and it’s also worth noting that the company partnered up with DxO in order to improve quality of the OnePlus 5’s main camera(s).

The OnePlus 5 will launch on June 15 or June 20, depending on which leak you’d like to believe. We’ve seen several leaks which claimed that the phone will be announced on June 15, but a new image surfaced earlier today, hinting at June 20 release date. The OnePlus 5 will probably sport a 5.5-inch fullHD AMOLED display, along with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and several different storage models will be available. OnePlus’ Dash Charge quick charging will be included in the package, and the phone will almost certainly sport a dual camera setup on the back. Android 7.1.1 Nougat will come pre-installed on the OnePlus 5, and on top of it, you’ll get the company’s OxygenOS skin, or HydrogenOS in a Chinese model of the device.

Insider: OnePlus 5’s Camera Comparable To That Of Galaxy S8





Camera capabilities of the OnePlus 5 are comparable to those of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, one industry insider said on Monday. The source made that claim on Chinese social media website Weibo that identified their post as originating from the OnePlus 5, giving more credence to recent reports that the Shenzhen, Guangdong-based original equipment manufacturer (OEM) opted to send early prototypes of its next Android flagship to ten reviewers in the Far Eastern country. With the device being only a few weeks away from its official launch, OnePlus is likely looking to use popular tech bloggers and other community influencers to promote its latest premium handset.
While the industry insider comparing the imaging prowess of the OnePlus 5 to that of the Galaxy S8-series devices may have gotten access to an early unit of the phone, they didn’t provide more details on the handset that’s heavily rumored to ship with a dual camera setup consisting of two horizontally arranged sensors and a dual LED, dual tone flash unit located in the top-left corner of its rear panel. Apart from being the first OnePlus-branded device with a dual camera setup, the OnePlus 5 may also differentiate from its competitors by featuring software developed by DxO Labs, a Boulogne-Billancourt, France-based imaging software firm. The Chinese company already confirmed that the French software firm participated in the development of the OnePlus 5, though it didn’t provide more information on the matter.

According to previous rumors and official teasers, the OnePlus 5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip (SoC) and boast a 5.5-inch QHD display panel protected by 2.5D glass. The Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer is expected to offer two variants of the device with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory and 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space, respectively. While neither is likely to feature a microSD card slot, both are expected to be significantly thinner than the 2016 OnePlus 3T, in addition to improving on its imaging performance and the overall user experience. Recent rumors indicated that the OnePlus 5 might be unveiled as early as June 15, so more details on the upcoming handset should follow shortly.

Leaked Image Suggests OnePlus 5 May Launch On June 20





A new OnePlus 5 teaser has just surfaced, and it’s hinting at June 20 release date for the device. We’ve seen several leaked images which suggested that the device will be announced on June 15, but this new teaser claims otherwise. This image comes from Weibo (Chinese social network), but it’s not official, so take it with a grain of salt, of course. This teaser does have OnePlus’ branding at the bottom, but we’ll have to wait for more info from the company in order to be sure.
OnePlus did confirm that the device will be announced this summer, while the company also said that it will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835, and that it will sport a front-facing fingerprint scanner. The company’s exec also suggested that we’ll see a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the device. Now, OnePlus did release a teaser image recently which suggested that the OnePlus 5 will be smaller than its predecessor, despite the fact the two devices are said to sport the same-sized display. Anyhow, the OnePlus 5 is also said to sport a dual camera setup on the back, even though OnePlus did not specifically confirm that. The phone will probably be made out of metal, and it will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, with the company’s OxygenOS skin on top of it.

Now, as per leaked info, the OnePlus 5 will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display, while it will also pack in 6GB or 8GB of RAM on the inside. You can expect to see several storage variants of this device out there, and DxO is helping OnePlus with OnePlus 5’s camera, so we’re expecting to see a truly compelling shooter on the device. As far as the phone’s pricing is concerned, rumors are reporting that it will be slightly more expensive than its predecessor. Having said that, the OnePlus 3T is priced at $439 at the moment, which was its price at launch as well, so the OnePlus 5 will probably cost somewhere between $450 and $500, but we’re only speculating. In any case, more OnePlus 5 info is expected to pop up soon, so stay tuned.
