OnePlus 5 retail box designs teased officially, May launch on June 15
Oneplus has just teased eight different retail box designs for the upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone through their official Weibo handle in China. The company is yet to announce an official launch date, though rumours suggest that the flagship device may be unveiled on June 15. The retail boxes design show numeral “5” written in the big font with White and Red colours. Three of the boxes are almost fully in red colour, while the rest are more white. At the moment, we are not sure if all these eight designs will be used by the company when it is launched officially or just one of these.
An alleged teaser of OnePlus 5 has also leaked on Weibo, which suggest a June 15 unveiling, But in our opinion, the alleged teaser is a fake one and is photoshopped using another teaser for a different smartphone.

Alleged OnePlus 5 Case Render Leak, suggest Vertical Dual Rear Cameras
Today we have another OnePlus 5 leak which comes in the form of an alleged OnePlus 5 case render. The leaked case renders again add to the confusion on whether the dual camera setup at the back comes with a horizontal alignment or vertical one. The case render suggests a vertical Dual camera setup, though we have seen numerous leaks which suggest a horizontal dual camera setup. The leaked case renders may be based on the rumors itself and may be far from the actual design.
