China-based smartphone company #Oneplus, who is currently preparing the stage to launch its #OnePlus 5, has already teased the tech world about the camera prowess the handset is hinted to have. By revealing its partnership with camera testing benchmark DxOMark, the company has gained an upper hand over its rivals. The alleged dual rear camera setup on the OnePlus 3T’s successor has created quite a buzz and fans are unable to contain their excitement.

Dual camera setup for the handset?

In an exclusive report, tech publication Android Authority claims that one of its sources has stated that the official tagline of OnePlus 5 would be “Dual Camera.

Clearer Photos.” The tagline will apparently be etched on the side of the smartphone’s retail packaging and confirms earlier rumors of the device sporting a dual camera setup.

The report cites another source who claims that the official tagline of the OnePlus 5 is “Focus on what matters” along with the “Dual Camera. Clearer Photos” tagline and the permanent “Never Settle” tag.

OnePlus teases fans

Earlier this week, the OEM took to Twitter to share two side-by-side images and also asked people to recognize the picture clicked by the OnePlus 5. The quality and color difference in both the images highlighted the low light camera performance, a chink in the armor of most modern-day smartphone cameras.

If one goes by the rumored tagline “Dual Camera. Clearer Photos,” one can assume that both the cameras will be sporting a monochrome and an RGB sensor rather than a telephoto or wide angle lens.

In the past, Huawei and currently the newly-launched Essential Phone are applying the same rule for its dual camera setup.

OnePlus 5 to be powered by a 3,300 mAh battery?

Friday, June 2, saw a second leak take place pertaining to the handset. A strange-looking poster was shared on Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo, which revealed that the OnePlus 5 would be powered by a 3,300 mAh battery. While the authenticity of the poster is circumspect, the news is in line with the recent comments made by the company’s CEO Pete Lau. Lau shared that the device will be the company’s thinnest smartphone to date.

Apart from the camera and battery capacity, most rumors state that the next-gen smartphone’s display will be similar to the OnePlus 3T ( 5.5-inches). A still photo teaser posted by the company on June 1, suggested that the upcoming handset may sport smaller dimensions compared to the predecessor.

This assumption offers support to claims that the front of the next-gen handset will have a minimum or no bezels compared to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The only hardware detail that the company has confirmed is the processor. Last week, the Chinese OEM confirmed that the impending OnePlus 5 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835. #OnePlus Rumors
