As the company has replaced the letter "S" with numeral "5" in its caption, as it has done in previous teasers about OnePlus 5, it is a clear indication that the upcoming smartphone comes in a much compact form factor than earlier phones in the series.

Yesterday, we got to know that the OnePlus 5 will be fueled by a 3300mAh battery instead of the rumored 3600mAh battery. Although, there is something in this marketing: the management of the company artificially increases the demand for both machines, after a few days they will cease to be a top and will fall sharply in price.

An alleged leaked poster has implied that the OnePlus 5 might launch on June 15.

The latest tease from OnePlus, however, was on Twitter.

The OnePlus flagship's launch date is not known but it is believed to be not too long from now.

In terms of the specifications some leaks suggest that the OnePlus 5 will have a patterned back, a vertical dual camera setup, a metal rim and a home button in the front. It is plausible that the OnePlus 5 would be smaller than the OnePlus 3T in its overall dimensions, despite featuring a 5.5-inch screen.

OnePlus 5 is expected to sport bigger battery than the previously announced OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. Interestingly, similar to what we saw on OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus is likely to go with a front-facing fingerprint scanner at the front. Two separate leaks pointing at the possible camera type and battery capacity recently appeared online. Reports claim OnePlus 5 will have 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, though there could be an 8GB RAM variant of the smartphone as well. Thus, it's clear that the camera was a major focus for the phone and was probably a hint that it will have a dual-lens camera.

Another significant OnePlus 5 leak, details what could be the flagship killer's camera setup.

The leaked retail packaging for the OnePlus 5 confirms that the device will feature dual cameras instead of just one.

OnePlus has made a name for itself by launching high-end flagships packed with powerful specs, yet at an affordable price point compared with other comparable smartphones. Reason being the dual camera set up and latest processor but that does not mean that the phone could cost Rs 60,000 or above like the iPhone.
