Do note, that the previous price leak was for the higher 8GB RAM variant of the OnePlus 5, and today s leak suggests the starting price, which going by the rumor of there being a 6GB RAM variant, will possibly be the price for the lower model.
OnePlus 5 image render
The same blog that shares the price leak, also shares a leaked image render of the OnePlus 5. The purported image of the OnePlus 5 looks quite similar to the leaked image we’ve seen previously. Though the render shows uncanny resemblance to the iPhone 7 Jet Black variant, going by the picture of the OnePlus 5 that the company CEO Pete Lau last week, the tipped design does look quite plausible. It has the some horizontally placed camera at the back, and similar antenna bands above it as we saw in the teased image.

Further, the render shows a fingerprint sensor that’s very similar to the one in the Apple iPhone 7. The same round home button, as opposed to the elliptical ones seen on all the previous OnePlus smartphones. The render also imagines the volume rocker placed on the left edge of the smartphone and the notification slider placed right above it.
