OnePlus 5 is said to be hitting the smartphone market anytime soon as rumors are rife that the Chinese tech manufacturer has decided to skip OnePlus 4 and launch a revolutionary device, which has all the potential to dominate the tight smartphone industry. According to the latest reports, the company has decided to skip the fourth iteration of the popular smartphone series since the number 4 is said to bring bad luck in the year 2017.

Android Pit reported that OnePlus has made it clear that its decision to release OnePlus 5 instead of OnePlus 4 is not because of technical issues in the development of the fourth iteration. Rather, it has everything to do with the company's "cultural peculiarity."

According to reports, the upcoming OnePlus 5 will carry impressive specs and features including a powerful processor paired with a whopping 6 GB of RAM. If rumors prove to be true, the device will run on a Snapdragon 386 processor from Qualcomm, which could be the fastest chipset in the market today.

OnePlus 5 is also expected to sport a 5.5-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolutions. The device is expected to challenge the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung's forthcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8.

The device has already been announced on Dec. 1, 2016, and fans could no longer wait to know more about it. Although the company has yet to provide the official details of the development and release date of OnePlus 5, rumors and speculations all over the Internet have already revealed its possible specs and features.

Meanwhile, other possible specs of the device include the Adreno 540 GPU and a 126 GB internal storage capacity. The device is also expected to carry an advanced battery system. Stay tuned for more news and updates with regard to the production and launch date of the upcoming OnePlus 5.
