Everyone in the mobile industry is already looking forward to OnePlus’ newest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5. Especially since the device is slated for a release this summer, there are already a number of rumors and teasers being shared online. To give everyone a peace of mind, OnePlus has revealed that the much anticipated smartphone will finally be unveiled on Tuesday, June 20th at 9 AM PDT.
As announced earlier, the smartphone will be revealed through an online keynote. After this announcement, the OnePlus 5 will then be available on the official website of the smartphone manufacturer. And to further promote the announcement of the latest flagship device, OnePlus will be hosting pop up events in various parts of the world. This is something they have traditionally done in the past when they launched their previous devices.
Now that OnePlus has made the announcement date official, it debunks earlier speculation that the smartphone will be launched on June 15th. There was also a leaked image believed to be the official event poster supplementing rumors that the launch will take place on the 15th. The image carried the words “Hello 5” along with the DxO logo that insinuated OnePlus partnered with the photography brand for the camera equipped on the OnePlus 5. Prior to this event poster, there was another event poster that was seen on Weibo carrying the OnePlus logo and the June 15th rumored launch date.
The smartphone manufacturer, however, confirmed with CNET that the earlier speculation is a mere rumor. Instead, the new June 20th schedule is the “day of the official reveal” throughout the world. Other than the official launch date, OnePlus has not yet given any other information about the OnePlus 5. So it is safe to say that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, dual cameras and that the Unicorn color option are only rumors. Some even went so far as creating renders as to how the new smartphone would look like when OnePlus officially launches it. Android Authority has even published a prototype leak hinting that the smartphone will be the latest to sport dual cameras.
There is no further official information about the OnePlus 5 unveiled as of this writing. But since the 20th is just a couple of weeks away, it will not be too long until we get a look at what OnePlus has in store in this year’s flagship smartphone release. So for now, you better hang on to your seats.
