For the past few years, Chinese tech company OnePlus has built a reputation among phone geeks for selling great phones for not so much money
Last year's OnePlus 3 held its own
against the other "flagship" phones
of the year, for instance, yet only cost $400. The company released a slightly beefed-up successor, the OnePlus 3T
, later in the year; while it raised the price to $450, it still performed similarly to pricier high-end phones from Google, Samsung, and Apple.
That OnePlus planned to release a new phone later this year is no shock, but the company on Friday confirmed that its next device is coming later this summer. For what it's worth, it launched the OnePlus 3
More notably, OnePlus confirmed to The Verge
that the new device would be called the OnePlus 5, skipping the "OnePlus 4" designation entirely. Should you have any kind of concerns regarding where by along with how to work with เบอร์มงคล, you'll be able to contact us at the page. The Verge says the skip is due to the number 4 being considered unlucky in OnePlus' native China. (It's pronounced similarly to the Chinese word for "death.") If you exclude the mid-range OnePlus X
, the new device will also be the fifth phone in OnePlus' core series of phones.
The company also seems to be fans
of former NBA player Robert Horry, who wore the number 5. The more you know!
