The image, spotted by GizmoChina, shows the protective case with the OnePlus logo on the back and placed on the alleged OnePlus 5 smartphone. Only the rear panel of the smartphone is shown which shows the rear dual cameras placed on the top left corner of the smartphone. The LED flash sits on the right side of the camera lens. The volume controls are placed on the left side with the notification slider on the right. The Oppo R11 too carries a similar look with the dual rear cameras placement on the top left corner of the smartphone.
Although the authenticity of this image cannot be confirmed, the design language remains the same as seen in a previously leaked render and the official image shared by OnePlus. With this, OnePlus does invite criticism on sharing a similar design language originally borrowed from the iPhone 7 Plus. OnePlus is known to primarily focus on performance and less on design. The company was expected to debut a new design for the OnePlus 5 but the results seem rather disappointing. ALSO READ: OnePlus 5 official render shows Oppo R11-like design
