In about a couple of weeks, OnePlus will finally launch its new flagship phone offering. Instead of the usual one model, there will be two: the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. The Chinese OEM will unveil the duo on May 14, Tuesday, 11AM (EDT) in a special launch event in Pier 94, New York. We’re certain loyal OnePlus fans who live by the ‘Never Settle’ motto are excited to know how the OnePlus 7 series will be better than the previous flagships and other phones currently out in the market.
As soon as OnePlus announced the OnePlus 6T, talks about the OnePlus 7 series immediately started. It was first mentioned back in November that OnePlus 7 wouldn’t implement 5G tech yet but a 5G phone would be ready. The next-gen OnePlus flagship was confirmed to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with 5G support.
So there will be a OnePlus 7 5G model and it may cost more but not that expensive. The 5G model idea is then made stronger when OPPO became Wireless Power Consortium’s newest member. You see, OnePlus is an offshoot of OPPO.
A OnePlus 7 image leaked and a new render appeared showing off a notch. More OnePlus 7 live images appeared on Twitter but now with no notch or camera-hole. It may not have wireless charging yet but it may feature a pop-up selfie camera with 16MP lens.
The upcoming OnePlus 7 phone is said to be really fast and smooth. The ‘Go Beyond Speed’ reference tells it. The phone will boast three rear cameras with 48MP lens included. The OnePlus 7 Pro will also arrive with 5G and a special display.
OnePlus 7 Pro European prices were also leaked. The OnePlus 7 Pro 8GB RAM + 256GB storage will cost €749 ($759). The 12GB RAM + 256GB variant will be €819 ($829).
OnePlus 7 Key Specs: 6.5-inch AMOLED screen, 2.84GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, fast screen unlock, Adreno 640 GPU, 16MP pop-up selfie shooter, 48MP + 20MP + 5MP triple rear cameras, 8GB or 12GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery with 44W super fast Dash charging. The phone runs on Android 9.0 Pie topped by Oxygen OS 9. Color options will include Almond, Mirror Grey, and Nebula Blue.
