    Surprised there isn't a thread about this already. Not sure how reasonable this rumor is, here are the bullet points.

    - Will skip ahead to being called the Oneplus 5 since 4 is unlucky in China
    - 5.5" QHD screen
    - Super small bezels, will still have capacitive buttons but the fingerprint scanner is moved to the back
    - Snapdragon 835
    - 3000 MaH battery
    - 23MP camera

    TBH, this is making me think of getting the 3T, with my current HTC 10 I've grown accustomed to the front facing fingerprint scanner, and this has a smaller battery.

    If the camera can match the top leaders (Samsung and Google), then I could be very interested in this, too.

    Hope it isn't missing waterproofing and wireless charging.

    Can't wait for the first leaks..

    Rumors sounds great except battery capacity and display size.
    Should be at least 3500mAh and a bigger (5,7" 16:9) display in the same body size.

    It's funny reading comments about OP5 possibly battery life on Android websites and Reddit, but hardly any one complained about 3000 mAh in the Samsung Galaxy S8. And, it has a 5.8" screen.

    A 5,8" display with 2.06:1 ratio is 85, 38cm²
    a 5,5" display with 16:9 ratio is 83,39cm²

    I've seen a lot of people complaining about the S8 battery size. On MR and other forums throughout the interwebs.

    They have improved and refined year on year, all the while keeping the price reasonable - love it.

    As others have said, the camera will be key.

    Did i miss the OnePlus 4 entirely?

    For me camera is the thing OPO needs to improve on more than anything else.

    Same here...head over the AC forums...they have whole threads about the battery size of the S8 and S8+

    No you didn't, but OnePlus is rumored to skip 4 as it's an unlucky number in China and they're a Chinese company.

    Apparently the pronunciation of the number is too close to that of death in many Chinese dialects, so I can see why they'd skip that :)

    I wonder if they do introduce wireless charging if they have a way of doing their dash charging.

    Wow that could be a very nice small design if they make it bezeless and have a 5.5" screen, and cheap too. Dare I say the new Nexus?

    That phone interests me alot too. If they can step up the camera a little i would definitely get one.
    That all black 3t is soo nice looking too.

    Rumors saying it will be unveiled in June, and it makes sense, would be a year after the OP3

    A OP5T possibility (8gb RAM) suggests waiting because you can get more bang for your buck that way since OP never tries to price at the $700-$800 premium. IP57 or better rating would be appreciated as well.

    Yeah, for me, camera quality and waterproofing are a must. Wireless charging would be a bonus, but can live with a large battery with even faster Dash charging just fine, too.

    I really enjoyed my time with the 3T before I gave it to my father.

    Memories...

    Ah, June is not terribly far away, but I don't know how well I can resist an unlocked S8...

    These work on TMobile, right? Now I'm interested in this phone. But only if it has a rotary dial. That's a must for me.

    If it's waterproof and the camera is improved, I'm quite likely to upgrade my 3T. Then again, I might wait a bit longer to see if Nokia comes up with a higher end device.

    Yeah well I'm not in the US but in Nokia's (and current brand licensor HMD Global's) home country, so I think there's a fair chance we'll get whatever they release :) There are some rumors about more premium devices, so if they come up with one and keep their update promise, that'll be an interesting device.

    Aren't the Nokia phones going through FCC approval precisely for US release? I thought I read that somewhere...
