Amidst all the rumours about the next iteration of iPhone and Pixel devices, there is a show stealer emerging from behind — the fifth phone from OnePlus.
Rumour mills have been churning information related to the upcoming OnePlus device — dubbed the OnePlus 5.
The company has confirmed that their next flagship, which will succeed the OnePlus 3 and 3T, will hit the stands this summer.
According to a report by The Verge, OnePlus isn’t naming the next device OnePlus 5 due to the Chinese superstition of 4 being an unlucky number, rather because of Robert Horry’s number 5 jersey in the NBA.Also Read: iPhone 8 Rumour Roundup: 7 Things We Know So Far.

Nonetheless, it’s a great news for all of those who wish to go for the next OnePlus or OnePlus 3 owners who felt a bit cheated after the release of OnePlus 3T.
