This tagline has an uncanny resemblance with Apple’s promotional messages for the portrait mode in the iPhone 7 Plus.
OnePlus already announced that it will be partnering with DxO Labs to improvise the cameras of every phone they launch. Thus, this new tagline might be a hint towards the new superior dual camera setup which will probably the biggest advancement in the OnePlus 5. Previously, an Android Authority leak showed the renders of the dual camera setup.
We also know that the phone will boast the Snapdragon 835 chipset and will have the fingerprint scanner on the front. Fortunately, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau also confirmed that the new flagship will have a headphone jack. Phew!
OnePlus 5 will most probably come with a 5.5 inch Full HD display but it might cut down on the bezels to reduce the phone’s overall footprint, just like the current smartphone trend seems to be. This was also hinted a few days ago through the company’s official twitter handle.
