You are here as you are very excited to know about OnePlus 4, right? While everyone is waiting for OnePlus 5 and ready to enjoy it after launch, very few are confused and wants to know what happened to OnePlus 4 and why the company is rushing with OnePlus 5. The reality is that we will never be going to get OnePlus 4. Because the device is not postponed but avoided. Don�t get it wrong! The phone is not avoided but the name is avoided by the founder. Recently, I got to know that the number four is considered unlucky in China. Isn�t it interesting?
In Chinese tradition, certain numbers are believed to be auspicious based on how the numbers sound in their language. According to them, numbers 0, 6, 8, and 9 are believed to have auspicious meanings as their names sound similar to words that have positive meanings. In that list, number 4 is considered an unlucky number in China as it is nearly homophonous to the word “death” or “decease”. Many Chinese companies actively avoid launching products with number four in the name.
But we no need to worry. As I said already, the company didn�t skip any phone but they skipped just the name considering numerology. OnePlus 5 is their next phone. No matter how it�s called however, there are plenty of features packed in it and CEO has promised that it will be one of the thinnest ever smartphones. There is a huge expectation for the device and is going to be a next big thing from the company. So, let�s wait for the launch.
