OnePlus 5 vs OnePlus 3T - The Time Is Now

OnePlus 5 launch event happens on 20 June. The handset is expected to be skinnier than Apple's current flagship, though, with OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirming that it'll arrive as the "thinnest flagship phone". Probably not. But do brace yourself, for it looks like the much-hated invites will be back for the OnePlus 5, at least in India. Apart from the horizontal rear dual cameras, OnePlus 5 will also come with a LED flash, which will be placed right next to the dual rear cameras.

The render has the tagline: "Dual Camera". It is now confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will feature a dual-camera and an iPhone 7 Plus-like design. We know a few things and there are a few speculations that need to end, so here it is. For starters, the OnePlus 5 will actually be an Amazon exclusive (in India) and will launch on the 22nd of June. As evident from the above picture, much like a today's iPhone, dual cameras are aligned horizontally on this year's OnePlus flagship. So it used an invitation system that required buyers of the OnePlus One to have an invitation before being allowed to purchase the phone.

Ahead of its official release dated on June 20th, OnePlus is slowly releasing details regarding the OnePlus 5. Other sources claim it could cost around $510 in India. However, since there is no official word regarding invites for the new handset, it could well be a move that may apply to certain markets, according to GSM Arena.

It is also worth mentioning that, the appearance on Geekbench and GFXBench means that OnePlus 5 has already been tested running the above-mentioned specs and that it could be the final one for the device.

The latest teaser comes from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, who has posted a video recorded at a music venue during a DJ performance.

The listing further shows that OnePlus 5 will have 128GB internal storage.
