OnePlus CEO hints that OnePlus 7 might not come in colorful avatars

10 April 2019 4

Huawei with its P20 Pro smartphone started a new trend. A trend of smartphones with vibrant colors and gorgeous gradient design. Now you’d hardly see a new device, no matter the price range, with just a boring black or a white color option.

OnePlus, on the other hand, has stuck to a couple of color options Black and silk white at max. While other brands have chosen vibrant colour themes for their phones as it is in demand from the youth who are using the phones, however, OnePlus’ CEO Pete Lau feels that these fancy colored glass variants do not sell much.

As per him, this sort of design only looks good and attracts people during press conferences, but the end users do not buy them. While most of us may think otherwise, Mr. Lau did not back his claim with any data. In fact, his statement has come at such a time when the company is set to launch a new smartphone OnePlus 7.

This also hints that the upcoming OnePlus 7 may only come in solid color options like the previous generation devices. As per the recent reports, OnePlus may, for the first time, launch multiple variants of OnePlus 7. These variants include the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G version. Though it was earlier officially announced that OnePlus would start a totally different lineup for 5G variant.

As per the specifications, the OnePlus 7 is said to come with a bezel-less full HD+ display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with 8GB of RAM. It is speculated to come with a pop-up selfie camera like the one present on Vivo V15 Pro and Oxygen OS based on Android 9 Pie.

The phone is said to house a triple rear camera setup with 48-megapixel primary, a 16-megapixel, and a third 8-megapixel sensor. It is not known that the 48-megapixel sensor is a Sony IMX sensor or a Samsung sensor. It is speculated that the 5G variant may only have 5G connectivity as a differentiator.

What the CEO thinks could be right, but having colorful avatars is definitely a good idea. After all, so many brands are having such phones in their profile.

Yup. When companies focus so much on the looks, the design, color is also one part of all the physical setup of a phone. If a particular color variant isn't available, I'd surely wait until I get the one of my choice.
