Just last week, the OnePlus 5 was found listed on Oppomart (reseller of Chinese smartphones).

OnePlus has confirmed The Verge that its next flagship smartphone will be launched in the summer of 2017.

Along with that, the leakster is also of the opinion that OnePlus 5 will come out with the dual-lens rear camera. The naming inconsistency (the company skipped OnePlus 4) was rumored to be because of how unlucky number "4" is according to the Chinese Tradition. The report said that former National Basketball Association player Robert Horry, who has the jersey number 5, is one of the main reasons for the device's name.

That's right: the next OnePlus phone will not be called the OnePlus 4; instead it will be called the OnePlus 5, as predicted. However, OnePlus has carved out a reputation for delivering excellent phones at mid-range prices since its launch in 2013 with the OnePlus One, which started at $299.

OppoMart lists these specs and features, adding that the rear camera has a 12-megapixel sensor, with an 8-megapixel selfie camera to be found on the front side.

Finally, the phone will launch with 64GB and 128GB storage options, which are slowly becoming the new standard for Android flagships.

Now, it seems that theories on the said name of the smartphone have been confirmed.

As far as the specs are concerned, were expecting the same 5.5-inch sized display with a resolution bump at QHD.

That OnePlus planned to release a new phone later this year is no shock, but the company on Friday confirmed that its next device is coming later this summer. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel this smartphone, and OnePlus' Dash Charge 2.0 will also be a part of the package.

Separately, previous reports also claim that the OnePlus 5 will sport a dual-edge curved display, hardware navigation keys, and slimmer bezels than its predecessor.
