It has been barely a few days since the newly launched HTC U11 dethroned Google Pixel series as the best camera phone by acclaimed camera reviewer DxOMark Mobile. But, the HTC phone's dream debut seems to be short lived as there is a strong possibility that the soon-to-be-launched OnePlus 5 will unseat its top position soon.
Chinese company has officially announced a partnership with DxOMark Mobile to make OnePlus 5's camera the best in the industry.
"We're happy to announce that we have teamed up with DxO to enhance your photography experience with our upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 5," the company said in a statement.
The company said they have put a lot of resources to equip the phones with the best camera hardware. With that in mind, OnePlus in association with DxOMark Mobile, intends to bring out the best photography experience in OnePlus 5.
OnePlus 5 will boast state-of-the-art camera equipment that will give top-rated camera-phones—HTC U11, Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 series, a run for their money.
OnePlus 3 successor's name officially confirmed
For those unaware, this is the first time the company has confirmed the name of the OnePlus 3 successor, putting all confusion whether it will be christened the OnePlus 4 or the OnePlus 5, finally to rest.
Why OnePlus 5 and not OnePlus 4?
As OnePlus fans would know that the company has its roots in China, and Chinese consider number 4 unlucky.
So, the company decided to skip OnePlus 4 and named the OnePlus 3 series successor as OnePlus 5.
Many fans would be hoping that skipping chronological order for OnePlus 5 does not bring bad luck, as it did for Samsung's ill-fated Galaxy Note7.
OnePlus 5: what we know so far
