We are not sure about it so don't blame us if it isn't so! However, from the latest barrage of leaks, photos and renders, it seems like OnePlus has done something that Chinese smartphone makers are often accused of doing; they have copied Apple and dropped the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack... Check out some of the photos yourself and let us know if you think these are fakes or if it is indeed the sad truth. They do look mighty realistic though, unfortunately...



Nevertheless, the OnePlus 5's dual camera (which is all but confirmed at this point) does look pretty sick and there are after all quite a few perks like Lossless audio and virtual surround sound associated with delivering audio via the USB Type-C port. Also, just like all other manufacturers, I am pretty sure OnePlus will at least be bundling in the adapter, if not the USB Type-C headphones. I will never understand why you would skimp out on a headphone jack if you have the room, but that seems to be the norm nowadays. On a positive note, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ still does retain their headphone jacks, so you will always have the best Android flagship smartphone of 2017 (yet) to fall back on if the OnePlus 5 fails its fans.

OnePlus is a sub-brand that's owned by Oppo, but the parent company does not exactly interfere in many of its operations. As a result, the online only OEM has made a name for its self in the recent years for delivering "flagship killer" smartphones that have astounding price-to-performance ratio. Although they are not as "cheap" anymore as they once were (unless you consider $439 to be cheap of course), the OnePlus 3T was still launched at almost half the price of the Galaxy S7 Edge, with arguably better hardware in some areas!




It looks like the OnePlus 5 is all set to continue its dominance over Android smartphones just like the OnePlus 3T did last year, when it comes to fast performance and high benchmark scores. Check out the benchmarks score above to see what we are talking about. Not to anyone's surprise, the iPhone 7 Plus continues to remain the undisputed king of single-core performance on Geekbench, but the upcoming OnePlus 5 has actually beaten the Galaxy S8+ quite convincingly in terms of multi-core performance! The S8+ did manage to hold the second position just after the iPhone 7 Plus though, beating the OnePlus 5 with just 15 points.

The speculations regarding the next OnePlus smartphone's numbering was right on point, as made evident by the Chinese OEM itself today. The rumors were confident that the next OnePlus would be named OnePlus 5, intentionally skipping the number 4 for superstitious reasons. The superstition behind the belief in work is (allegedly) the fact that the Chinese associate the umber 4 with death. We are not sure about the story, but whatever the reasons are, they were right! OnePlus has just released a teaser image on Weibo which you can check out above. It shows the 1+ Logo and a text that simply reads, "HELLO 5." The image was accompanied by some added text which read, "Hey Summer! Give me five."


In case you haven't figured it out already, the "HELLO 5" is a confirmation that the next smartphone from the company's stable will indeed be called OnePlus 5. The text on the other hand, clearly teases a summer release. If we were to make an intelligent guess, we would say that the phone will be released at least in China by the end of July (latest), if not sooner. The dual camera module at the back, the SD 835 chip and the 3,600mAh Dash Charging battery sounds amazing, but we do hope the resolution is bumped up to 1440p this time around.
