OnePlus has always been playing it safe and launching its flagships later in the year, when they’ve already analyzed what the competition has been up to. If the past is any indication, they’ll keep doing that in 2017 and the OnePlus 4 is quite a long way till debut. For now we have to be content with renders like the ones below.
The creation of DBS Designing, this smartphone comes with Lineage OS and brings 8 GB of RAM. This model offers a top of the line Snapdragon 835 processor, as well as 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. There’s also a 5000 mAh battery in the mix, a 16 megapixel front camera and an 18 megapixel dual back camera. Upfront we also find a 5.5 inch Quad HD+ screen, the likes of which we’ll also see on the LG G6 probably.
The body is waterproof this time and the designers envisioned an iris scanner included here too. Dash Charge is still supported. The design is rather standard, if you ask me, in keeping with the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus One models, if you look at the back side. The facade adheres to the S8 and LG G6 design trends, with a very narrow set of bezels.
The Home button is atypical and a bit too close to the edge for comfort. Maybe get rid of it entirely next time? This also looks like a device much bigger than 5.5 inches in diagonal. I’m betting on a metal body, that’s also pretty slim here.
