06 May 2019 5

The OnePlus 6 is almost one-year-old that's why the rumors mill starts producing rumors regarding the OnePlus 7 at a rapid pace. This year OnePlus is gearing to announce three new phones under OnePlus 7 including standard OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 5G variant. The 5G variant isn't a surprise as many OEMs introduced dedicated 5G models this year but for the first time, we are hearing about a Pro variant from OnePlus.

OnePlus upcoming phones are always highly anticipated due to their stylish design, top-tier hardware, and great value for the money. Although the OnePlus phones are becoming expensive with each new iteration still the OnePlus branded phones are way cheaper than premium flagships from big three. Like always the OnePlus fans are eagerly waiting for the upcoming flagships.

The OnePlus 7 lineup will go official in next few days, today we compile all the rumors and leaks we know so far regarding the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. We are hopeful this roundup will help you to better understand what to expect from the upcoming OnePlus flagships killer. Without any further ado, let's start with the price and release details.

Price and Release

As reported earlier, the company recently confirmed the launch event of OnePlus 7 Pro on May 14th. Unlike the big OEMs, the company is holding four launch event. The biggest amongst all will be in New York at Pier 94 on 11 am.

The second event will kick off at 4 pm in London at Printworks. The third event will be for the Indian fans in Bangalore at 8.15pm. These three events will be on May 14th. For the home country, the company set the May 16th launch at 2 pm in Beijing. Fortunately, the company will Live telecast the launch event via official accounts.

Surprisingly the launch events only mention OnePlus 7 Pro, it could be because of being more premium than the standard OnePlus 7. Like its predecessor, the OnePlus 7 will be slightly expensive. Last year the OnePlus 6T base model costs $550. This year we can expect a little bump in the pricing.

Design

The most important question in everyone's mind is how the latest OnePlus 7 looks in terms of design. One thing is sure OnePlus 7 will have a new design language. Following the latest trend, the company opted a new design to enhance the screen-to-body ratio. The company won't be bringing the notch design instead it will follow the approach Vivo introduced with the Nex S.


Recently we had seen case renders shared by Sudhanshu Ambhore which gives a pretty good idea regarding what to expect from OnePlus 7 in terms of design. The front-facing side has a full front-facing display. The only prominent bezel is a the bottom. On the bottom edge, you will get bottom-firing speakers, USB-C port and SIM card slot. It doesn't have a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. The triple rear cameras are aligned vertically in the center.


Being the Pro model the OnePlus 7 Pro comes with few refinements. It comes with round corners from the edges. The OnePlus 7 Pro glass rear is gently curved so that the device can be grabbed easily. It is also rumored to have a larger display than the standard variant.


Display

The display is certainly one of the aspects which isn't much leaked ahead of the official unveiling. The OnePlus 7 is rumored to have a 6.5-inches AMOLED display panel whereas the OnePlus 7 Pro will have even larger 6.67-inches OLED panel. Both the phones will have an under-glass optical fingerprint scanner. So far OnePlus teases the OnePlus 7 Pro is super smooth because of its superb OLED display.

Ahead of the official unveiling DisplayMate tested the OnePlus 7 Pro and rated with the highest A+ grade which indicates the OnePlus 7 Pro display panel is pretty good. Recently the Galaxy S10 also awarded with the same ratings which mean we can expect the OnePlus 7 Pro will have a good display panel as the Samsung's latest flagship. It is also rumored to be the first OnePlus phone with Quad HD+ screen resolution.

Hardware

It is not a surprise to see OnePlus opting the latest best components under the hood. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will be running on the Qualcomm's latest best Octa-core Snapdragon 855 chipsets. It's the first Qualcomm chipset built on the 7nm process which is currently powering almost all Android flagships in the market. The OnePlus 7 recently appeared at the Geekbench listing with Snapdragon 855 SoC.

Back at the Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit, the OnePlus Pete Lau officially confirmed the next flagships will have the Snapdragon 855 SoC. The Pro variant is rumored to be available in two configurations. The base model will have 8GB RAM with 128GB storage whereas the top-tier variant will have 12GB RAM with 256GB storage.

The OnePlus 7 is rumored to have 4,000mAh battery cell. Despite having a glass rear the OnePlus 7 lineup won't support wireless charging. Back at the MWC 2019, the company CEO stated cable charging is superior to the wireless charging and the company isn't interested in implementing the wireless charging. Undoubtedly OnePlus fast charging is one of the fastest in the market.

Camera

OnePlus is amongst those OEMs which adopted the number of cameras early but still the devices cameras setup isn't as good as the competitors. With the OnePlus 7 lineup, the company stepped up the design game by adopting triple cameras on the rear side.

The guys at Wired has early access to the pre-production unit of OnePlus 7 Pro. They claim the extra sensor is an optical zoom sensor with up to 3x zoom. Having an extra sensor will certainly improve the OnePlus 7 lineup cameras capabilities as opposed to the predecessors. The Wired claims the HDR feature is much improved.

The OnePlus 7 cameras shutter lag is less than 0.3 seconds. Other goodies include Auto HDR and support for digital zoom up to 10x. As per the so far leaks, the OnePlus 7 Pro primary snapper is a 48MP module. The secondary sensor is a 16MP sensor whereas the optical zoom lens is an 8MP sensor. The details regarding the selfie snapper are still in the dark.


As per an e-commerce listing, the OnePlus 7 comes with slightly different cameras setup. The primary sensor is a 48MP module. The secondary sensor is 20MP. The telephoto sensor on the rear is a 5MP sensor. The selfie snapper remains 16MP like the predecessor. If the listing is accurate it would be surprising to see the standard OnePlus 7 has better secondary snapper than the Pro model at least on the basis of a megapixel. Recently OnePlus recently official camera samples of OnePlus 7 Pro which highlights the camera 3x optical zoom prowess.


As all the leaks and rumors are not from the official sources that's why we will recommend our readers to take this info with a pinch of salt. Fortunately, the OnePlus 7 lineup official launch is less than two weeks away. We can expect more details in the coming days, Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.

The 3x optical zoom feature is making me curious to go deep into the comparison between this and the Reno 10x Zoom. To a point, they look to take on each other.
