OnePlus 5 details have allegedly been confirmed now. Latest report claims that the tech giant has confirmed to the name and release date of the upcoming smartphone.

As previously reported, OnePlus has registered a new smartphone model at the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) with a model number A5000. This led to speculations that the upcoming smartphone will indeed skip the OnePlus 4 name and will use the OnePlus 5 as the model name.

Now, it seems that theories on the said name of the smartphone have been confirmed. Apparently, The Verge claims that OnePlus has confirmed to them that the name of the OnePlus 3 and 3T successor is OnePlus 5.

The publication also claims that OnePlus has detailed that the name of the upcoming OnePlus 3 successor was based on the jersey number of Robert Horry, former NBA player. The report mentioned that many employees of the tech giant declared themselves as fans of Robert Horry, who is wearing a jersey with the number 5. Hence, the next flagship was allegedly named OnePlus 5.

Moreover, the publication also claims that the smartphone creator has also confirmed the release of OnePlus 5. According to the report, the new flagship is arriving this summer.

Early last month, we have already reported that the release date of the highly anticipated OnePlus 5 has been leaked. MySmartPrice, a shopping assistant website, has posted the details of the new smartphone.

The posting on the MySmartPrice states a June 30, 2017 release date for the successor of OnePlus 3. It seems that the new report claiming a summer launch agrees with our previous report of June 30 release.

Meanwhile, what can you say about the alleged basis of the name of the highly anticipated OnePlus 5? Was it really about the jersey number?
