OnePlus 7 is coming with a hidden front camera, full-screen display without notch and an affordable price. Will the Pro version also have 5G? Here are the features and the technical data sheet.
The release of OnePlus 7 is imminent: the new Chinese smartphone, whose slogan is Never Settle, is on its way and the features concerning screen and camera are almost completely known with many users waiting for the release of the new flagship killer, ready to position itself alongside the best Android smartphones of 2019.
In fact, OnePlus 7 will confirm some of the cornerstones of the line, strengths that have made the made in China company a success: a low starting price and features worthy of the best top of the range which, despite a very low cost, it allows not to give up quality and efficiency. Here are all the details.
OnePlus 7: Display
The first substantial novelty that makes OnePlus 7 decidedly different from previous models is having invested on a notch-free screen, similar to that implemented by the main competitors like Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy A80.
The absence of holes for the camera and bulky cleats will be guaranteed thanks to the retractable front camera, which can be activated by scrolling and containing all the necessary sensors (similar to what is applied by other smartphones like Xiaomi). The main camera will emerge outside the upper side of the body, making it really similar to the input of a small USB: a solution that will surely be discussed but that stands out from what we have seen so far in the mobile smartphone market (increasingly interested in eliminate any type of obstacle regarding the displays).
The differences between OnePlus 7 Pro, the real spearhead of the new series, and OnePlus 7 (which will aesthetically recall what was seen on the already excellent OnePlus 6T) are still not entirely clear: there are still no confirmations but in the intentions of the Chinese company would be to debut two different models for features and performance, with 5G to act as a watershed.
The OnePlus 7 screen could measure up to 6.4 inches, equipped with AMOLED technology, curved and with Full HD + resolution.
OnePlus 7: camera and features
The curious frontal pop-up camera of OnePlus 7, a real novelty, will be equipped with a 16 megapixel sensor, while as far as the rear one is concerned, it will be aligned on the now increasingly common triple camera with 48 + 20 + 5 megapixels.
Under the bodywork instead OnePlus 7 should mount a SnapDragon 855 chip and an octa-core CPU, able to provide all the necessary power at your fingertips with an expected 45% performance improvement compared to the previous OnePlus 6T model. As for the memory, we think of cuts of 8, 10 or 12 GB of RAM and an internal storage of between 128 and 256 GB. Battery in line with the predecessor, but once again the possibility of wirelessly recharging the device and the 3.5 mm audio jack for headphones (in favor of an even lower thickness). In-display fingerprint reader present, while Android 9 Pie will be present with next to the latest version of OxygenOS 9 (the customization of the green robot most appreciated by the market).
OnePlus 7: release and price
The release of OnePlus 7 should take place in May 2019, just six months after the 6T debut.
Full details will come in the coming weeks, even if the company has made no secret of the imminent release of the device. The One Plus 7 Series presentation event is scheduled for May 14 in London, with the possibility of following the live streaming via the official website. The price is still the result of rumors and discussions, but it is easy to foresee a launch of OnePlus 7 at 600 dollars, while the hypothetical version 7 Pro (which could also implement 5G) could reach around 1000 dollars.
