The OnePlus 5 stars in yet another leak, and this time around, it "confirms" a dual-camera setup, which was hinted via leaked sketches before.
From the look of things, the company is betting on smartphone photography to gain a prominent spot in the heated market — that is, aside from top-of-the-line components, such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.
OnePlus 5 Packaging Leaks
Right off the bat, Android Authority got ahold of a photo that features a OnePlus 5 retail packaging (shown above), and it reads, "Dual Camera. Clearer Photos."
That is apparently the official tagline that OnePlus is going with for the OnePlus 5, according to the source of the leak. However, it's also been said to be thrown in among "Focus on what matters" and the company's iconic "Never Settle."
OnePlus 5 Camera Expected To 'Enhance Your Photography Experience'
Everyone keeping tabs on the upcoming flagship killer already knows it's going to have an awesome snapper. That's because the smartphone maker announced that it's working with DxO to "enhance your photography experience."
After that, OnePlus recently showed off the OnePlus 5's camera, posting sample images and giving consumers a clear look at what's in store. Particularly, it exhibited the device's capability in taking shots in low-light conditions, which is typically difficult for smartphones.
To put two and two together, if the dual-camera setup turns out to be true, then we might be in for a one heck of a handset that can take the smartphone photography to all new heights, which is more or less evidenced by the sample shots.
For the record, the HTC U11 now sits at the top of the DxOMark list, beating the likes of the HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7, and Google Pixel, which used to be the leader of the benchmark ratings.
OnePlus 5 Rumors, Details Roundup
As a refresher, here's what we know so far about the OnePlus 5:
OnePlus 5 will be the slimmest flagship yet: OnePlus CEO Pete Lau announced that the OnePlus 5 will be the thinnest among the brood, but he didn't exactly make it clear whether it's the slimmest OnePlus flagship or simply slimmer than the Galaxy S8, iPhone 7, and others.
Snapdragon 835 will power the OnePlus 5: OnePlus has already confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will house a Snapdragon 835 to "set the foundation for smooth, powerful, and efficient performance."
Rumors say the OnePlus 5 will boast high-end specs: Aside from the Snapdragon 835, the OnePlus 5 is said to have at least 6 GB of RAM under the hood, a 5.5-inch display, and a 3,600 mAh battery to keep the lights on — other rumors point to a 4,000 mAh cell, however.
OnePlus 5 will be affordable: Leaked documents said that the OnePlus 5 will have a starting price of $450, which is a whole deal cheaper compared with other flagships. That means it looks like the smartphone maker is sticking to what it's known for: powerful devices at relatively low prices.
OnePlus 5 will roll out in June: The OnePlus 5's release date is set on June 15, a leaked invitation to an event says. That aligns with the company's plans to launch the flagship killer sometime this summer.
On that note, it's still recommended to take these leaks and rumors with a grain of salt until OnePlus discloses the official specs or launches the handset, though.
