On the front, it is said to boast two cameras on the left side with the speaker in the middle and a proximity sensor on the right side. On the top, it is shown to have clean frame with no buttons and SIM tray, as such. At the bottom, it features single grille speaker on the side and 3.5mm audio jack on the right with Type-C USB port in the middle.
On the left side of the frame, it features an alert slider on top and the volume rockers below it.
Leaked images doesn't show the lower-half of the device's display panel, but it is expected to have finger print sensor at the bottom, which also doubles up as the home button like we see in current flagship model OnePlus 3T.
On the rear, OnePlus 5 is shown to boast vertically placed dual-camera module on top with multi-LED flash support and laser autofocus sensor.
Interesting thing to note is that the OnePlus 5 will have dual colour combo like the Google Pixel phone series. Key difference is that the former has ceramic-based cover on the top, whereas the latter has glass. And, the lower-half is made of metal.
Going by the images, it looks like OnePlus has done some deep research to come up with a new design language for the OnePlus 3T successor.
