Windows 9 failed to materialize for reasons best known to Microsoft, but the OnePlus 4 will not see the light of day due to the fact that the number four is considered unlucky in China.

According to an OppoMart listing, the OnePlus 5 will be priced at $449 (roughly Rs. 28,800), and shipment of the product is listed to begin in June 2017. With the unveiling of the OnePlus 5, it looks like Chinese manufacturer is expected to take it to the very next level, assuming the specifications on the online retailer hold up. We saw two iterations come to market within 5 months of each other; the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus has always been rumoured to be working on their 2017 flagship, dubbed OnePlus 5. You also get support for Dash Charge 2.0 technology. No details on the launch date of OnePlus 5 are available as of now. The image shows cartoon workers putting together a phone, and it's accompanied by OnePlus' usual hashtag of Never Settle. The OnePlus 5 will also be the company's fifth phone they've produced, but they say this is a complete coincidence and wasn't intentional. This is also certain because the OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 already run on Android Nougat based Oxygen OS. However, a previous report claimed that OnePlus will retain the same design language and it would be interesting to see whether the company plans something big in the design department as well.

External features include 5.5-inch quad high-definition display sporting a 2560x1440 resolution. While the 835 is a given on the OnePlus 5, this is an octa-core processor.

An interesting point to note with the Oppomart listing is the optics that is expected to the come on the phone. On the front, the smartphone is said to feature an 8MP front-facing shooter. The source also says that dual camera is pretty much confirmed, but it won't be arranged as the renders have you believe.

Recently, a rumor came in suggesting that the OnePlus 5 will have a horizontal dual-lens camera setup as opposed to the vertical arrangement depicted on Oppomart.
