OnePlus 5 reportedly will be the name of the upcoming OnePlus flagship smartphone, as earlier reports indicated. It has also been confirmed by a brand new leak, unveiling more details of the latest device.

A listing about the OnePlus smartphone, which model number is A5000, has been found by Roland Quandt of WinFuture. The said listing was seen at the Chinese Ministry of Industry or the MITT. However, it is still not yet confirmed if it is really about the OnePlus 5 but it was believed that this would be the Chinese tech giant's premium flagship that more probably be the company's 2017 highlight.

As previous OnePlus flagship phone received the model number A3000 for the OnePlus 3 and A2000 for the OnePlus 2, it is quite suggestive that A5000 will be the company's upcoming flagship and be named as OnePlus 5. Many would ask why it is OnePlus 5 while there is no OnePlus 4 yet. It is for the reason that Chinese consider the number 4 as bad luck, according to 9to5google.

This is the same reason why Vivo had V3, skipped 4 and went directly to V3 in their V phone series. Since Vivo and OnePlus are just under the roof of the same company, it is also expected that the latter will follow this and more likely it will happen to base from the leaks exposing the OnePlus 5. When OnePlus 3T will be taken into consideration, which is OnePlus 3 direct successor, technically speaking, OnePlus 5 is really the fifth flagship and this naming is not merely for luck purposes only.

Talking about the specifications and features of the upcoming flagship of OnePlus, an intimidating set is said to come with it, according to some leaks and reports. Included in the formidable list of spec and features, OnePlus 5 is said to have a 5.5-inch display along with a 2K resolution and will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with an 8GB RAM, reported PC Advisor.

Its camera feature will include a 23MP dual lens camera with an amazing optical image stabilizer and an optical zoom, says Android Headlines. Sustaining to enjoy this features is its 3,000mAh battery. Behind these elaborate details of OnePlus 5, the confirmation of the device itself is not yet official much more its release date.
