OnePlus 5 Spotted On Chinese Regulation Site, Company Skips OnePlus 4

After receiving an impressive response for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, OnePlus has started gearing up for its next flagship. Yes, OnePlus 5 has been spotted on China’s Radio Regulation Authority and has been confirmed that it will be the next flagship of the company. Prior to this, OnePlus was spotted by AndroidPure, which carried the number A5000, hinting towards the next smartphone of the company.

As the number 4 is considered unlucky in the Chinese society, the company is skipping tagging the phone as OnePlus 4. Further, this can be stated from the previously launched models that carried the numbers like A3000 and A3010 before their launches. According to various media sources, OnePlus will reveal the next flagship in the second half of 2017. OnePlus 5 is expected to feature a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The smartphone will also carry a 5.5-inch 2K display with 1080 X 2048 pixels screen resolution.
