OnePlus 5 Takes Over OnePlus 4 Release; OnePlus 4 Cancellation Due To Technical Problems?

By Kate Bane

OnePlus 5 is rumored to replace the OnePlus 4. Fans are now confused which of the two will possibly be hitting the technology market soon.

Recently, news emerged that the OnePlus 4 will be hitting the technology market. However, it seemed like it will unlikely happen because OnePlus 5 will be taking the limelight.

According to the AndroidPit, the sudden shifting of plans is due to a "cultural peculiarity" not of "technical problems in the development". It was explained that the number four is a bad luck for the Chinese for the year 2017. In the Chinese language, the pronunciation of the number is closely related to the word "death".

For this reason, the OnePlus 5 seems to take over even without the OnePlus 4. The new smartphone unit is rumored to have a "ceramic housing". Since this is not new to OnePlus, it is possibly for the OnePlus 5 to have the similar housing to the OnePlus X. Furthermore, it is believed that the manufacturer will regress to the top hardware.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 386 processor will be used with 6 GB RAM. It will feature a 2,500 x 1,440 pixels WQHD display. Hence, the OnePlus 5 will be contending to the resolutions of other android smartphones such as Samsung, LG, and much more.

The Mobi Picker noted the specifications of the new OnePlus 5, which was announced on Dec. 1, 2016. It will have a bar design, which will be available in two colors: black and white. The screen is 5.5 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.

The OnePlus 5 has a built-in quad-core processor CPU with Adreno 540 GPU. The RAM memory is 6 GB with a 126 GB internal storage. It also allows the user to use microSD with up to 128 GB memory slot. This unit also has a nonremovable battery type.

Though there is no official announcement yet, OnePlus 5 is expected to be released anytime in 2017. Are you excited to see the sample unit?
