But still tech enthusiasts are eager to get first hands on it. So, what do we know about it?As quoted by Microsoft CEO Nadella, “We are working on ultimate mobile device”.. Yes, they have to work hard on that as we know, Microsoft has had very limited success with mobile, struggling to acquire any meaningful amount of market share. With giants like Apple and Google currently dominating the industry, Microsoft is under immense pressure to crack mobile market successfully.

The expected cost is around $699 to $999. Microsoft has teamed up with Qualcomm to bring the full Windows 10 desktop experience to smartphones and other mobile devices, thanks to Snapdragon chips.
Rumours are, there will be three variants of this phone. Consumer edition, business edition and Enthusiasts edition. If given a thought then consumer edition seems to be m uch more economical. The Business edition looks as if it may compete with Blackberries. And Enthusiasts edition may be the high end amongst the three, competing against Samsung galaxy or maybe Iphones. There won’t be any difference in screen size but there will be three variations in terms of memory with 3GB/32GB, 6GB/128GB and 8GB/500GB.

People are wondering, why are we not talking about OnePlus 4. And yes you are right, after three comes four. But we will come to that later. Now OnePlus recently released OnePlus 3T, which is the upgraded version of OnePlus 3. But now OnePlus may unveil OnePlus 5 not 4.

Reasons are:-

It is a Chinese company and in China number 4 is usually related to bad omen.

And the major reason is that, OnePlus is owned by BBK Electronics in China. Which also owns oppo and Vivo. And Vivo released their flagship device Vivo V5 after releasing Vivo v3, totally skipping the 4the generation mode.
