OnePlus 3 was released back in June 2016 and June 2017 was suppose to be the month of release of OnePlus 4. But the rumors that suggested there will be no OnePlus 4, came out to be true and now it is confirmed that the Chinese manufacturer will skip OnePlus 4 and jump straight to OnePlus 5. According to the latest rumors, OnePlus 5 release date should be someday in June 2017, exact one year after the release of OnePlus 3 !
Why the Chinese manufacturer decided to skip OnePlus 4 model and release OnePlus 5 instead because in Chinese culture, the number 4 is considered to be associated with “Death”. It also brings bad luck for the people who are associated with digit 4! .
The Chinese domain name investors don’t buy any domain name for their online business that have digit 4 in it or sell them for a cheap price if they have any with digit 4 already.
OnePlus 5 release date
So, the rumors have become reality and we aren’t going to see OnePlus 4, instead we will have the company releasing OnePlus 5 instead with powerful specification, design and features. It will be much better than its predecessors OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T that was released in June & November 2016 respectively.
The company announced OnePlus 3 in June last year followed by 3T in November and it has been assumed that new OnePlus 5 will be unveiled in June again with features like dual lens camera, latest chip and more internal storage.

OnePlus 5 specification & features
OnePlus is just a few years old smartphone maker but it has impressed lot of people from around the world with its fantastic smartphone that they released till now. The company has announced four models so far but the phone Chinese manufacturer makes each time, it gives cut throat competition to maker such as Huawei, HTC, Samsung that have been around for years.
OnePlus 3 and 3T are a great hit as both the phones come with impressive specification such as Quad-core processor, 6 GB RAM, powerpacked battery and awesome design.
According to the rumors, OnePlus 5 will have even better specification than its predecessors. As far as the design is concern, OnePlus will have ceramic chassis instead of traditional aluminium that we’ve seen in OnePlus 3. However, according to Androidpit, it might have only back panel made of ceramic. The phone will be protected by Corning’s Gorilla glass 4.
Talking about the CPU, OnePlus 5 is going to have 3.4 Ghz octo-core processor supported by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 SoC. Along with rumored 8 GB RAM and highly upgraded GPU, OnePlus 5 going to work like charm while playing game or at the time of multitasking.

Current Samsung flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+ have octo-core processor coupled with Snapdragon 835 chip and only 4GB RAM but the Chinese smartphone maker is going to unveiled OnePlus 5 with whopping 8 GB RAM – double of Galaxy S8 and S8+
As far as the camera is concern, OnePlus 5 will have 23 megapixel back camera that will come along with features like flash light, optical image stablisation technology, optical zoom, auto focus etc. It might have massive 16 megapixel selfie camera for shooting better selfies.
This is the only smartphone with such a powerful front facing camera and I think, it may become major attraction of OnePlus 5 as nowdays, people click lots of selfies and like to share them with friends.
As far as the internal memory storage is concern, OnePlus 5 may come in two different versions, One with 64 GB internal storage and other one with 128 GB internal storage. However, with microSD card slot, you can expand storage capacity to 256 GB. There will be differences in RAM of these two versions, one with 64GB internal storage capacity comes with 6 GB RAM and other one with 8 GB RAM.
OnePlus will run android’s latest Naugat 7.0 version to give customer the best experience.
One of the major upgrade with OnePlus 5 is the battery. If rumors are to believe, OnePlus 5 will have massive 4,000 mAh power Li-ion non removable battery. It can go for hours and with Dash Charging feature, you can re-fill battery in a matter of few minutes. So OnePlus 5 is real savior if you are one of those people who use their smartphone heavily.
OnePlus 5 price
That’s one of the major reason why people love OnePlus smartphone. While being not much pricey as Samsung or Apple’s flagship smartphone, OnePlus offers its smartphone comparatively at a cheaper price. I am sure with all the specification that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T have, the rival’s phone would have been much costlier.
According to the rumored features and our analysis, we anticipate the price of OnePlus 5 should be in range of $450-$500 for 64 GB model. However, for 128 model, you might have to add $50 or so extra.
