One of the Chinese regulators confirmed the rumors about the name of the new flagship smartphone OnePlus 5, saying that the device will be called so and not otherwise. Yes, no 4 OnePlus will not, and after 3 straight 5, but this does not mean that China does not know about the existence of the number 4 — it’s all about superstition.
In China and Japan for unknown to the rest of the world the number 4 is considered unlucky and sounds similar to the word “death”, and, in the opinion of management of the OnePlus, its presence in the title definitely have a negative impact on the sales of the gadget. But in this case it is not the superstition of the management of the company, and the people of Asian countries — they don’t want to buy OnePlus 4, and as a result its sales are will be minimal, because in Europe and the US, this brand are not yet in great demand. Now, if Apple called its new phone the iPhone 666, would you have bought?
However, sober-minded people realize that the only numbers that affect their lives, those that make up their salary, buy a mobile phone with almost any name and look only at its performance, OnePlus and they have 5 very good. In the apparatus of the claimed 8 GB RAM, Qualcomm 835 with Adreno graphics 540, the screen is of 5.5 inches with Quad HD resolution and a very narrow framework, and at least 64 GB of internal memory. OnePlus 5 will show in the second half of 2017, it will cost not more than $500.
