OnePlus – the company that’s known for manufacturing “flagship killers” – has come a long way. From its first flagship killer OnePlus One to the latest high-end feature-packed affordable flagship killer OnePlus 3T, the company is leaving no stone unturned to bring out the best smartphone. We already know that the next iteration of smartphone from OnePlus won’t be named OnePlus 4. As for OnePlus 5, the latest reports confirm that OnePlus 5 will be coming with the dual camera and Snapdragon 835 processor.
OnePlus Officially Hints Dual Camera on OnePlus 5
According to reports from China, it is now more or less confirmed that OnePlus 5 will feature a dual camera setup. Today, OnePlus’s official account on Weibo has hinted the dual camera on OnePlus 5. Though there was no mention of OnePlus 5, the post says “Brain hole open, give you # OnePlus 3T # plus a camera, you will choose to add where? The following are the same as the”. Well, we understand “brain hole open” makes no sense, but that’s the best Google Translator could come up with for the Chinese phrase. The Chinese users are speculating it as a strong hint for the dual camera setup on the upcoming killer flagship smartphone OnePlus 5.
In addition to dual camera setup, OnePlus 5 will come with Snapdragon 835 processor. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor is designed to provide next-generation entertainment and cloud connectivity for advanced consumers and enterprise devices, including VR/AR head-mounted displays, IP camera, tablets, mobile PCs, and smartphones.
We had already reported that OnePlus 5 is likely to come with vertical dual camera setup and a front facing oval shaped fingerprint sensor. OnePlus 5’s dual camera setup, which is also expected in the upcoming iPhone 8, is likely to come with additional capabilities for VR and 3D recording. It looks like nothing much will change when it comes to the fingerprint sensor, except for the shape. Given that the dual camera setup will offer additional capabilities for VR and 3D recording, it makes sense that OnePlus 5 will feature the Snapdragon 835 processor that is specifically designed to provide next-gen entertainment and cloud connectivity for VR/AR technologies.
