The Chinese smartphone company OnePlus has officially confirmed that their next flagship device will be the OnePlus 5 NOT OnePlus 4. The company has shared the information exclusively with “The Verge”.
According to the online tech magazine “The Verge”, OnePlus skipped the number 4 because Chinese consider it as unlucky number due to its pronunciation which is similar to “death” and “decease”.
Many employees like the former NBA player Robert Horry who wore a number five jersey. OnePlus has shared one photo on twitter with the paintings of Robert Horry in the background. This can be another reason behind going with the number 5 instead of 4.
OnePlus is well known for giving a hard time to the top smartphone brands (eg. Samsung, LG, Google, Oppo, Xiaomi etc) with their high-performance smartphones and everyone have the same expectations from the OnePlus 5 also.
