The latest flagship of smartphone maker OnePlus is confirmed to be coming this summer. The OnePlus 5, which is the successor to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, is said to feature high-end specs and dual-rear cameras.
According to a report from The Verge, the company confirmed to them the news about the release of its latest flagship device. The company is also said to be skipping the name OnePlus 4 and moving on to the OnePlus 5 because the number 4 is considered unlucky in China.
The OnePlus 5 will be the fifth smartphone device that the company will be making, but it doesn't have anything to do with the name. The report said that former NBA player Robert Horry, who has the jersey number 5, is one of the main reasons for the device's name. It is said that a number of OnePlus employees are a big fan of Horry and there are actually two paintings of him hanging in the company's Shenzhen office.
