OnePlus 5 Will Sport Fingerprint Sensor at the Front, Reveals CEO

Following a spate of rumors and leaks that have shown the OnePlus 5 handset from different angles, a new report just surfaced online, claiming that the handset would offer a fingerprint sensor confirming earlier leaks that suggested the same.

According to the report, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau affirmed the presence of a fingerprint sensor on the upcoming flagship smartphone.

The fingerprint feature is said to sit at the front of the device unlike some other Android device like Samsung Galaxy S8, where it is placed on the back.

What’s more, the company also reportedly teased the color options expected to roll out with the OnePlus 5 handset. Among the conventional color choices, the company added a seemingly odd choice that was referred to as ‘Unicorn’ by OnePlus.

The device is rumored to sport a 5.5-inch quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display and come with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB.

The handset is also said to bear dual rear camera with a pair of 12-megapixel sensors (standard RGB + monochrome).

The latest retail listing also said the front camera at 8-megapixel, which is quite surprising considering that the OnePlus 3T brought a 16-megapixel camera.

In a separate news, OnePlus 5 will come with a dual-edge curved display, hardware navigation keys, and slimmer bezels than its predecessor.

As of now, we can’t say for sure whether or not, these specifications are what we will see when the handset comes out, so we recommend that you take this information with a pinch of salt.
