The message? That the next phone, rumored to be called the OnePlus 5 (4 is regarded as an unlucky number in China, one that corresponds to death), should come out sooner rather than later.

Specs rumoured for the OnePlus 5 include at 23MP plus a front-facing selfie snapper at 16MP, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM and a 3000mAh battery.

The official teaser also doesn't give away any specifications or features, but a recently leaked render of the phone, and what are thought to be official shots from the camera, confirm a dual rear camera setup. If accurate, this means the OnePlus 5 won't have an all-screen design like the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. The Weibo leaker says that it will be the latter but OnePlus could still release an 8GB RAM model in the future.

According to BGR, Lau teased the upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone on Weibo.

Turkey threatens further strikes on US-allied Syrian Kurds
On 28 April, US troops visited the border areas between Rojava and Turkey to inspect the Kurdish areas bombed by the Turkish Army. Syrian ally Russian Federation has called for an global investigation into the April 4 attack that killed almost 90 people.


As for storage, Kumamoto Technology says that it will have 128GB of storage.

Battery size of the OnePlus 5 is said to be 3,600 mAh and not 3,000 mAh as previously suggested. However, the leak also reveals that the latest flagship device is expected to come with 25 percent improvement in the charging speed as compared to its predecessor. The handset may or may not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, the report says.

None of these specs have been confirmed by OnePlus itself and should be taken with considerable amounts of skepticism.

OnePlus made a name for itself by offering high-end flagship killers at affordable prices and it now has a number of smartphones in its roster, with more on the way. The same day, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau posted a picture on his Weibo page, which suggested that the company is working on something big. The handset will apparently feature a Full HD display, and should launch by the end of June.
