OnePlus co-founder thinks that OP5’s design similarity with iPhone 7 Plus will be forgotten after launch

One of the hot topics around OnePlus 5 was its design similarity with Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus. Judging by its stunning resemblance revealed in an official teaser of OnePlus 5, it’s really hard not to notice that the next “flagship killer” really does look like iPhone 7 Plus.

Carl Pei, co-founder at OnePlus tweeted its own opinion on this matter. He wrote: “Does anyone still remember the commotion regarding the OnePlus 3 design before it came out? It stopped as soon as people got the device“.

As out colleagues from Phone Arena noted, that yeah, OnePlus 3 was compared with HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S6, yet after OnePlus 3 was released the design comparisons stopped and no one thought that OP 3 resembled any of two rival smartphones.

In the end, right now, all smartphones are just rectangular cuboids, so why not think they all are one and the same. But will see on June 20, if OnePlus 5 is just another iPhone 7 Plus clone.
