New OnePlus 5 render leaks online, key specs reconfirmed


A new purported render showing the upcoming OnePlus 5 flagship smartphone has been leaked on the web, courtesy of a poster on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. Similar to a previously leaked render published by India Today, the new render suggests the OnePlus 5 will feature a vertical dual-camera layout at the back.

The new render seems to suggest the LED flash will be placed between the two sensors and not right below the two sensors as the previous render had shown. The prominent antenna lines on the other hand, appear to be almost identical to the OnePlus 3T.  We don’t see a fingerprint scanner at the back, which possibly means it will be embedded inside the physical home button on the front.

Along with the render, the Weibo poster also reconfirmed some key specs of the upcoming flagship. As previous leaks have suggested, the smartphone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. The chipset is tipped to be coupled with a whopping 8GB of RAM, which could make the OnePlus 5 one of the first smartphones on the market to be equipped with more than 6GB of RAM. The leak also points to a massive 4,000mAh capacity battery.

Since nothing has been confirmed yet and the leak comes from a source with an unverified track record, we suggest taking the above info with a grain of salt.
