On a closer look, the renders appear identical to the recently leaked OPPO F5, which is expected to release on October 26 in Manila. The smartphone is speculated to feature a tall, bezel-less 18:9 display and carry forward the selfie-centric capabilities from the OPPO F3 with a pair of 16-megapixel dual-camera on the front.
As OnePlus is yet to officially confirm the existence of the OnePlus 5 successor or a new OnePlus 6 model, it is advisable to take the information with a grain of salt. As for the OnePlus 5; the flagship smartphone is priced at Rs 32,999 and sells exclusively on Amazon. The USP of the smartphone is the 20-megapixel + 16-megapixel dual-camera setup at the back, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 under the hood, 6GB of RAM, and Android Nougat out-of-the-box.
