There’s a superstition in Asian countries about number 4 – it’s said to bring bad luck. That’s why Chinese smartphone manufacturers skip all fours in their line-ups. Meizu did that, having released M5 after M3. And now, OnePlus follows the same footsteps – the company is planning to launch their new OnePlus 5 in 2017.
According to some sources, this smartphone is going to be one of the most powerful in the world. It’s expected to be released in the second quarter of 2017. The main feature will be its ceramic body. That’s actually a new trend on the mobile device market. Ceramics contributes to better Internet signal, which is pretty important with the development of 4G and 5G. Earlier, the company had already launched a limited series OnePlus X with ceramic bodies.
Judging by the information, available on the Internet, OnePlus 5 will have some impressive characteristics. It will be fitted with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM. That’s not much, so we have to wait for more data.
By the way, OnePlus 3 has been the most powerful smartphone for a long time after its release. Although iPhone brought this “title” back to Apple, OnePlus 5 may be a serious contender and definitely a powerful device.
