According to Tech Radar, in China, number four is a universal sign of bad luck that may force the company to name the phone as OnePlus 5. However, a different theory suggests that the OnePlus 3T has already taken the fourth gen spot, which means the company’s next smartphone will have the “5” moniker.
OnePlus 5 is said to be a premium device. Premium is a word which is generally tagged with global tech giants like Samsung and Apple. However, OnePlus is also giving a run for its money with its new upcoming flagship smartphone.
The next generation OnePlus 5 will take inspiration from the already popular OnePlus 3T. In its aim to go head to head with today’s big brands like the Apple iPhone, OnePlus 5 will reportedly have high-end and killer specs.
