The OnePlus 5 is Now Official

8 May, 2017 OnePlus

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.
