May 8: The Chinese phonemaker has confirmed that its next flagship smartphone OnePlus 5 with dual-camera setup and high-end specifications will be launched this summer.

According to The Verge, "the phone is called OnePlus 5 and not OnePlus 4 because the number four is considered unlucky in China".

The name OnePlus 5 has been inspired by former NBA player Robert Horry.

OnePlus's Shenzhen office sports two Horry's paintings and his "number five" jersey inspired the smartphone's name.

On Friday, the OnePlus 5 was spotted listed on an online retail site where some specifications, price and a June availability were outed. According to the listing the OnePlus 5 price will be $449 (roughly Rs. 28,800) in the US, but it was unclear whether this was for the 64GB variant or the 128GB variant.

Its earlier devices OnePlus 3 and 3T have become a huge success in India.

OnePlus 3T, that costs Rs 34,999, comes with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM and sports 16MP rear and front cameras.

It houses 3,400mAh battery -- an increase of 13 per cent as compared to its predecessor.
