Potential Release Date for OnePlus 5 Gets Leaked, OnePlus Teases Camera Sample
The OnePlus 5 is creating a lot of buzz on the rumour mill. Until now, many leaks have uncovered the expected specification that we will get to see on the upcoming flagship. And now, the latest leak has revealed the potential launch date for the device.
OnePlus had already announced that it will be unveiling the phone this summer, but the company did not specify the exact date. A leaked image posted by GizmoChina contains a screenshot of an internal email by OnePlus, which displays June 15 as the launch date for the smartphone. Evidently, the leaked internal email was sent by OnePlus, regarding marketing arrangements. Presumably, the leak itself could be one of the publicity stunts to create more buzz in the market.
In another news, we have seen a series of leaked images for the OnePlus 5, posted on Chinese social media website - Weibo. This time around, the fresh set of images leaked on the website show the front panel of the handset as well. The previous images only showcased the rear panel of the phone, but the new images give us a fair view of the front design.
The images show vertical dual lens camera on the OnePlus 5; this design is different from the previously leaked images. However, in contrast to the newly leaked images, many leaks reveal that there will be horizontal dual camera setup on the phone, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Based on the rumours, the fingerprint sensor would be placed under the home button on the OnePlus 5. Also, the latest leaked images show the home button on the front panel, which means that fingerprint sensor could be embedded into it. Unlike the other recent flagships, OnePlus seems to be sticking with the Home button.
