We all knew that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is going to name its next flagship phone as OnePlus 5 instead of OnePlus 4. Now it is also confirmed by the company. But the exact date of launch is not revealed by them, though we know it is going to happen in the coming months.

It looks like, the upcoming device is the most premium version when compared to other OnePlus phone series.
This is not the end. We receive rumors regarding the specs of this phone on daily basis. Now, OnePlus 5 has been spotted once again which revealed some more details about it. This time, the device is spotted in China's Radio Regulation Authority database. It gave away almost all information about the device.
