With the release just round the corners, the latest OnePlus specs leaks is the most detailed till yet. OnePlus has earned great reputation by creating smartphones with amazing specifications which sell for a fraction of the cost of other major flagships. The upcoming OnePlus 7 should continue that trend, but what will it look like? What are its specs? How much will it cost? When will we see it? We are here to answer your queries and trying to give a slight dimension to a blurry picture as the things unfold and disclose.
Take a look of what we know for now
OnePlus 7: Name and release date
Every year since 2016, OnePlus has launched a numbered phone followed by a “T” variant closer to the end of the year.
While the numbered phones are seen as true sequels, the T variants usually include minor repetitions and modifications to the follow ups. Since the last OnePlus phone was the OnePlus 6T, the next phone is expected to be the OnePlus 7. The company has affirmed that it’ll be showing off the “OnePlus 7 series,” specifically mentioning the OnePlus 7 Pro name too. This means there’ll be at least two phones on offer: a standard model and a Pro variant.
More on, OnePlus has officially announed a launch event on May 14 in New York, London and Bangalore while Chinese launch event will be on May16.
OnePlus 7: Specs and features
Like always, OnePlus7 is expected to be a energy house of a smartphone. That likely means the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 6GB of RAM, a powerful battery, a big display, and an improved in-display fingerprint sensor.
It’s believed that the standard model will offer double rear cameras, while the Pro device could offer a triple rear camera trio.
However, there will be no wireless charging feature in the phone.Talking with CNET, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said wireless charging isn’t as efficient or demanded enough by customers as fast wired charging.
Frankly speaking, OnePlus’ Fast Charge standard takes the OnePlus 6T from 0 to 60 percent in 35 minutes. It will take some time until wireless charging reaches those speeds.
Then again, we’re seeing an increasing number of flagships with wireless charging capabilities. Even Apple jumped on the wireless charging bandwagon, starting with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X in 2017.
It is also reported that the company intends to introduce a series of 5G phone apart from the OnePlus 7. More specifically, co-founder and CEO Pete Lau said that the OnePlus 7 Pro will offer 5G connectivity.
A leak from April 17 posts that the OnePlus 7 Pro features a Quad HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. To keep the curiosity alive is Lau telling that the Pro model’s screen would set a new benchmark for smartphone displays. The phone also reportedly features a triple rear camera system with wide-angle and telephoto lenses, a 4,000mAh battery with support for OnePlus’ 30-watt Warp Charge standard, USB 3.1, and a dual speaker setup.
Also, OnePlus founder Pete Lau pushed out a teaser on Twitter with the tagline “Fast & Smooth.” The tagline could refer to the display’s higher refresh rate and OnePlus’ software optimizations.
Leaks at different phases have created a disagreement on how the OnePlus 7 will look like. According to some, it will have a manual slider mechanism at the top that would house the camera and sensors.
Well nothing is explicit in the leaks about the slider functioning.-just like the latest trend it seems to accomodate a punch hole camera similar to latest Galaxy S10 phones and Honor View 20.
The latest uncovering hints that the standard one will have a waterdrop notch while OnePlus 7 Pro will have a pop up selfie camera. This means a bezel free display instead of a slider mechanism. Pricebaba / @OnLeaks
This so-called OnePlus 7 Pro was also identified in Olixar’s case renders, which show off a OnePlus phone with a pop-up selfie camera. It also exhibits triple rear camera and signature alert slider on the right.
It is anticipated that it has a rear glass panel, the same material used in OnePlus6 and 6T. Even though glass is much nicer to look at than aluminum, the former’s not nearly as resistant to drops as the latter is.
However, OnePlus is inclined to borrow designs from sibling company Oppo. We expect it to design its own individual outlook with outstanding colors that are not inspired from Oppo-no offense to Oppo who has created amazing designs giving tough time to the competitors.
OnePlus 7: Price
OnePlus is known for devices with flagship specs at much lower price points, so we can expect that philosophy to continue with the OnePlus 7. But the cost has increased with every new OnePlus smartphone as shown below
- OnePlus One — $299
- OnePlus 2 — $329
- OnePlus 3 — $399
- OnePlus 3T — $439
- OnePlus 5 — $479
- OnePlus 5T — $499
- OnePlus 6 — $529
- OnePlus 6T — $549
Thus one can expect the OnePlus 7 to cost at least $569, maybe even more. We can definitely expect the rumored Pro model to offer an even higher price tag. Following are the supposedly European pricing details. However, it’s suggested that this variant could launch for 699 euros.
- OnePlus 7 Pro 8GB+256GB — 749 euros
- OnePlus 7 Pro 12GB+256GB — 819 euros
What’s amazing is that OnePlus has made its place slowly and steadily among the best smartphone companies. With each price increase, it seems that the company has firmly planted its feet on the ground.
These are all the rumors about the OnePlus 7 that we’ve come across so far. We’ll update this page as we hear more.Will you take the risk as a new customer of the phone or will you opt for a different company? Share your views and also your expectations from the new phone.
