However, the company has not revealed anything else. Here is a list of things that you should know about the upcoming OnePlus 5. OnePlus is skipping OnePlus 4 and launching the 5th edition directly, apparently because in China number four is considered unlucky.

However, OnePlus has confirmed in a report that the reason behind naming the OnePlus 5 is former NBA player Robert Horry, who has been liked by a score of OnePlus staff. They also have the NBA player’s paintings hanging in their Shenzhen offices, so his number five jersey also inspired the smartphone’s name.
