The OnePlus 3 and the 3T turned out to be a major hit last year. The question today is can the OnePlus retain its last year’s achievement. Will its next release be as premium and powerful as other 2017 flagships? Well, the answer to these questions were uncertain till the India Today shared a design render of the OnePlus 5, yesterday. But this render leak raises another question on itself and that’s how legit is the render? and, Is this really how OnePlus 5 will look like? Here I’ll try to find an answer to that question.

OnePlus 5 Design Render (Leaked)

Before addressing those questions, let’s talk about the leaked design render first. What is easily noticeable in the design render is the dual cameras on the back. That’s kind of expected. Since many flagship phones and even high tier mid-range phones are coming with dual cameras on the back for the better performance. But not all dual cameras are engineered the same so, what kind of dual camera combination the next OnePlus phone will have is still under the dark. Below the dual cameras is the LED flash and below the flash sits the 1+ trademark. The buttons and their placement seem to be identical to the OnePlus 3/3T. If you were not sure the phone will still retain the 3.5mm Headphone jack placed at the bottom. Thankfully, the phone won’t come with a camera bump and that’s a good thing.

More on the render, the metal body phone seems to have thrown away the antenna band on top but that on the bottom is still noticeable. It is so faint that you have to watch it with a Hawk-eye.

As of now, it’s kind of 50-50. The image has been rolling around the internet but the source is only one. That makes me a little skeptic. But the design render hits the nail right on the head with those dual cameras which were kind of expected. And, the buttons placement seem legit too. But to confirm how the OnePlus 5 will look like, we have to wait for its official launch that’s expected to be just 2-3 months away.
