OnePlus is all set to announce its latest set of smartphones globally on May 14. Unlike the previous iteration, OnePlus will announce multiple variants of the flagship smartphone this time. As per the previous reports, there will be a OnePlus 7 base variant, a OnePlus 7 Pro and a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G variant. Now the company has not only confirmed the presence of Pro version but has also announced that it is accepting pre-bookings for the OnePlus 7 Pro ahead of its launch.
As per the company, customers looking to pre-book OnePlus 7 Pro, starting today users can log in to their Amazon account and purchase an e-gift card worth Rs. 1000, which can be redeemed at the time of purchase of the phone. As a pre-booking incentive, the company is offering a onetime accidental screen replacement insurance worth Rs. 15,000. The validity of this insurance is 6 months from the date of the purchase, though the customer is expected to pay Rs. 750 towards processing fee in case they want to claim the insurance benefit.
Alternatively, the starting 8th May, OnePlus 7 Pro can be pre-booked at the nearest OnePlus Store, Croma and Reliance stores and pre-book the phone by paying Rs. 2000, which is redeemable during the device purchase. One-time accidental screen replacement offer will be applicable here too. Incidentally, the offline pre-bookings start the same day when Google’s budget Pixel series will be unveiled in India.
To recall the, OnePlus 7 may not have a huge difference in terms of the design over the current flagship OnePlus 6T and may come with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) display, Snapdragon 855 chipset, two configuration options: 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB storage. There will be a 48-megapixel (f/1.7 aperture) and 5-megapixel depth sensor dual rear camera setup. It may house a 4150 mAh battery pack with 30W warp charge support.
The OnePlus 7 Pro, on the other hand, maybe a completely new design. It is said to come with a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ (3120 x 1440 pixels) display with 90Hz refresh rate, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and three configuration variants: 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage. Few leaks have hinted towards the presence of a 10GB variant as well.
It may be powered by a comparatively smaller 4000 mAh battery pack with the same 30W warp charge support. It may come with a triple rear camera setup (48+ 8+16-megapixel sensors) and a pop-up camera module housing a 16-megapixel selfie snapper. The 5G variant is said to come with the same configuration as the OnePlus 7 Pro but with additional 5G connectivity.
It is speculated that the OnePlus 7 series could be the costliest till now. While the OnePlus 7 may not have a huge price difference than the price of OnePlus 6T, the OnePlus 7 Pro may be priced starting Rs. 50,000 in India i.e. approximately USD 700 or CNY 5000. The 5G variant would surely be priced higher.
