OnePlus has shown images of its much-hyped OnePlus 5, which looks much like the iPhone 7 Plus. This is the first official look at the device,; we can see antenna lines and a horizontal bulge with dual cameras on the back. The OnePlus 5 model is black and appears to have rounded and flat bezels. The glimpse came thanks to a tweet from OnePlus teasing the dual cameras, so we can probably expect more details in the coming days and weeks leading up to the launch.

Unofficially, there are leaks, the latest of which suggests multiple OnePlus 5 models will be available, the main difference being the amount of RAM. Both 6GB and 8GB have appeared in online benchmark databases and the source code of an Amazon India teaser page. The official OnePlus 5 launch date for India is June 22, and further leaks indicate that the price will start at Rs. 32,999 for a 64GB model, with a 128GB model also launching for Rs. 37,999. If true, it would make the OnePlus 5 significantly more expensive than its predecessors at launch, diminishing its appeal somewhat.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
