In a little over four hours, the enfant terrible of the smartphone industry will take the wraps off its newest toy.
Coming off a good run with the OnePlus 3/3T, OnePlus hopes to show the world that it’s ready to sit at the adults’ table. There’s a lot at stakes. Unlike most other smartphone companies, OnePlus relies on just one model at a time. If the OnePlus 5 turns out to be a flop, it will be a very long year on the sideline.
From what we’ve seen so far, success is in no way guaranteed. For one, this will be the most expensive OnePlus phone yet, severely blunting OnePlus’ biggest edge. And then there’s the iPhone-like design that has caused such a fracas already.
