Design video explains almost every OnePlus 5 detail

Design video explains almost every OnePlus 5 detail

With one day to go until one of the most exciting smartphones of the summer becomes official, there’s not much that we don’t know about it. And thanks to a new video that looks at OnePlus’s reasoning for designing the OnePlus 5, we now know why the handset looks like the iPhone 7 Plus but not the iPhone 8. We also know that it’s going to be more expensive than last year’s OnePlus flagships.

Talking to The Verge about making the OnePlus 5, various execs explained that the company’s main goal this year is to make a great camera, one that can rival the camera experience on iPhone or top Samsung devices.

OnePlus apparently thought about equipping last year’s OnePlus 3 with a dual camera, but the endeavor was too expensive. Or it was too expensive to inform the public why such a camera works. In the video below, you’ll see OnePlus CEO Pete Lau thanking Apple for doing that last year.

You’re also going to see a bunch of OnePlus 5 prototypes that don’t look like the iPhone 7 Plus, yet the one that does, was ultimately chosen. “It’s a little difficult to make two cameras, two holes in the back not look ugly,” OnePlus Simon Liu says in the video.

Speaking of expensive decisions, Lau also told The Verge that it’s interested in edge-to-edge screen designs. “But we don't currently have the resources or access to those displays,” he said. That’s why the phone will not look like the Galaxy S8 or the iPhone 8.

Finally, the video also reveals that the OnePlus 5 will be more expensive than its predecessors. How much will it cost? We’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

Here’s the last OnePlus 5 leak you’re going to need

Here’s the last OnePlus 5 leak you’re going to need

The OnePlus 5 is officially being unveiled tomorrow, which means that eager leakers only have a day left to get their top-secret pics out into the wild.

Several people with access to the final product appear to have jumped the gun and posted images of the final product, including shots of the device, the box, and case after case. Basically, there's nothing left for OnePlus to surprise us with.

The first image was posted toSlashLeaksearlier this morning, and shows a couple of official cases next to the box of the phone. We've seen so many pictures of the front of the device that there's no surprise here, and the box looks exactly like the kind of packaging that we've come to expect from OnePlus.

The second picture shows the back of the phone out of the box, and again lines up with all the other extensive leaks (and official images) that we've seen so far. There's the same dual camera setup, the same black plastic back, and the button and logo layout that we're expecting to be officially unveiled this week.

In all likelihood, these leaks are coming from industry people that have a pre-release device for testing or review. It's common practice for select individuals and organizations to get a device early, but under a non-disclosure agreement that prevents leaks like this. However, give enough people access, and the inevitable happens.

At this stage, the only thing really left to leak is the official pricing and release strategy. Historically, OnePlus has tried to supply a flagship-quality phone at a slightly lower price than iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy devices.

This year, it seems like DJI might be aiming for a higher price and higher-quality device. It looks like the OnePlus 5 will have particularly top-end specs, like a Snapdragon 835 processor, more than 4GB of RAM, dual-camera setup and a good screen.

It's not impossible that the price will come in somewhere around $450, which would be a hefty discount on the $750 the Galaxy S8 runs, or even the $1,000 that Apple could charge for the iPhone 8. At this point, we're nearly done speculating, and it's just a waiting game for the next 20 hours.

An Apple supplier may have just leaked iPhone 8 launch timing

An Apple supplier may have just leaked iPhone 8 launch timing

New iPhones launch in September, and that's a trend that's been around since as far back as the iPhone 5. With the insane rumor whirlwind surrounding the highly anticipated iPhone 8, there's been plenty of hand wringing and whispers to suggest that the new flagship won't be ready to carry on the tradition. Now, a report on a possible Apple supplier seems to suggest that the iPhone 8 will indeed arrive a bit later than usual.

The info comes from a company, Finisar, that is thought to be supplying Apple with high-tech lasers built into the iPhone 8, which are used for a variety of things including AR depth mapping and possibly image recognition. The report claims that "one company" will be purchasing tens of millions of units of the specialized lasers later this year, and that company is thought to be Apple.

If that theory holds true, then Finisar's production schedule could be a pretty solid indicator of the iPhone 8's release window. Loup Ventures, which connected all these dots in the first place, now expects Apple to debut the iPhone 8 at an event in September, but not actually ship until a month later in October. That guess lines up nicely with other reports that place the iPhone 8's launch in October.

The relatively minor delay over the established norm is being chalked up to potential manufacturing setbacks, and considering how many reports we've already seen this year that hint at supply constraints and other issues, it wouldn't be shocking to see the new smartphone arrive a month later than its predecessors.
