From the rear, the OnePlus 5 bears a striking similarity to the iPhone 7 Plus. And as if that was not already enough, the design of the handset is the exact same as Oppo’s upcoming R11. Essentially, BKK, the parent company of Oppo and OnePlus, is ensuring that both these handsets use the same design so as to save on manufacturing cost.
As for the dual camera setup, the teaser image from OnePlus says that the dual camera setup on the 5 will allow it to capture clearer photos. This likely hints at the secondary sensor being a monochrome one which would allow it absorb more light. This implementation should be similar to what Huawei does on its P9 and P10 handsets. As for the primary sensor, rumors point to the handset coming with a 16MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture.
