Leaked image reveals OnePlus's upcoming smartphone, could be 5G variant
Here's everything to know about OnePlus's 5G smartphone.
Here's what the image reveals about OnePlus's 5G phone
The image is possibly from an internal company meeting, given OnePlus CEO Pete Lau is seen attending the presentation.
In the slide, we clearly see the rear side of the flagship in red while a silver variant is seen in the hands of Lau.
The back panel of the phone reveals a circular camera module, confirming a depart from OnePlus 6T's vertically-stacked dual-camera setup.
Tipster suggests the phone is still in "prototype/designing stage"
EXCLUSIVE! Here's your first look at an upcoming OnePlus Device I don't know much about. This image shows the device in prototype/designing stage and it is not final but this is probably how the device may end up looking. That's Pete (CEO of OP) in the img and the device itself. pic.twitter.com/Yau9EsgSDy— Ishan Agarwal (@IshanAgarwal24) December 19, 2018

The image also leads to some uncertainties
While the image reveals a redesigned camera module, we cannot confirm if OnePlus has increased the number of sensors from two on the OnePlus 6T.
Moreover, it is hard to confirm if the camera is flush with the rear glass or not.
Lastly, we also see a portion of the screen but it is unclear if OnePlus has adopted the in-trend "punch hole" design.
Meanwhile, here's everything we know about OnePlus's first 5G smartphone
Earlier, OnePlus had announced that its upcoming 5G-ready smartphone would be an entirely new series and not the OnePlus 7.
The company has already partnered with EE network to launch the first 5G-ready flagship in Europe by early 2019.
Moreover, the upcoming smartphone will ship with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset - something Lau confirmed recently.
