The wait is nearly over. After a steady stream of rumors and teaser posts, OnePlus will officially unveil its upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 5, on Tuesday, June 20.

The company will reveal the phone via an online keynote, which will kick off at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT, and will be accessible on OnePlus' site. Afterward, OnePlus will hold pop-up events in different countries to promote the phone, similar to past launches.

This throws a wrench in a previous rumor, that speculated the phone will launch on June 15. OnePlus, however, confirmed with CNET that this is "just a rumor," and that the twentieth "is the day of the official reveal globally."

Aside from the launch date, not much else is known about the OnePlus 5. Other rumors posited that it will have a Snapdragon 835 chipset, dual cameras and a crazy Unicorn color option

OnePlus began as a small phone maker based in China. It garnered a solid following after offering premium phones at mid-range prices. Its last marquee phone, the OnePlus 3T , earned CNET's Editors' Choice Award. It featured high-powered hardware while costing notably less than rival flagships at the time of launch.
