OnePlus teases colour options for its upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone

He goes on to explain that OnePlus is focusing on multiple performance and experience areas that start with the Snapdragon 835 and go up from there.

Lau also may have inadvertently confirmed the OnePlus 5 will have the same option for capacitive or on-screen navigational buttons.

OnePlus is widely making the headlines lately for obvious reasons: The Chinese company is expected to launch its 2017 flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 5 device anytime in the next two months. It's also not unusual for a gold color variant to show up and while some previous rumors had suggested that a red color variant will come in this time around, it will be an interesting turn of events as far as the fourth color variant is concerned.

OnePlus 5 is expected to make its first official appearance sometime later this Summer. Now, OnePlus founder Liu Zuotu has confirmed that the OnePlus 5 will come with a front fingerprint sensor. That's the top SoC third party Android makers can use at the moment, and the OnePlus flagships have always come with the best Qualcomm had to offer at any given time.

Recent leaks and rumors have suggested the OnePlus 5 will look very similar to the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus has revealed that the OnePlus 5 will include a Snapdragon 835 processor.

One of the worst nightmares for any Android smartphone user would be the elimination of the headphone jack. Of course he was referring to the popular "why did the chicken cross the road" joke, but it could mean anything.

The OnePlus 5 could finally be equipped with a jack ... The handset has been leaking over the internet for the past couple of weeks, all of which point towards a dual-camera arrangement on the rear and possibly, on the front as well.

OnePlus 5 is expected to be the best from nearly all aspects.
