The OnePlus 7 series has been confirmed, and we are getting two devices this time from these Chinese smartphones manufacture. The first launch is in China on 16th May, and a couple of days later on the 14th of May in the rest of the world.
We’re getting OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, and in addition to that, there will be the 5G version, which will be the OnePlus 7 Pro with 5G chip put inside it.
So, one of the biggest bits of news about these devices this year, is the new display that OnePlus are using in their OnePlus 7 Pro Edition. This has actually been confirmed by the CEO himself on Weibo in China, and he didn’t specifically confirm the 90 Hertz rumor, but he has said that the screen this year is going to be very special, and it’s going to cost two to three times the amount to put in the phone.
Compared to the normal version that they’ve put in previous devices, the OnePlus 7 will be getting a 6.4 inch screen, around about HD quality that won’t be the new expensive 90Htz screen, and you have to get the pro version for that 90 Hertz refresh rate.
This is going to be extremely good if you’re a gamer, and you want incredibly fast refresh rates. But it’s also going to make the entire operating system when you’re using the phone for your much snappier and quicker. Even though, both of these devices are going to be using a snapdragon 855 and we’ve seen this in a whole host of flagship phones this year including the Charlene v9, it might feel just snappy up because of that screen refresh rate.

Also that pro version 6.7 inches is going to be a huge screen comparing it to the P30 Pro from Huawei, or to the Xiaomi Mi 9. The P30 pro is about 6.47 inches, the OnePlus 7 is 6.7 inches means it is slightly bigger than both of them and it’s going to be a very big phone.
The 7 pro will be completely bezels, it looks like these phone is going to have a pop up camera on the front. Not everyone is a huge fan of pop-up cameras, though, OnePlus is putting a pop-up camera in the pro version to give you that fully bezel dis display.
In our experience, the first generation pop-up cameras were just too slow in the way they went up and down, but the new crop manufactured by BBK the owner of OnePlus, vivo and Oppo, are definitely better than before. And if you look at the vivo pop-up cameras, they are definitely quick enough to make you forget to what you’ve seen in its predecessors.
So, that 6.7 inch display, is going to be crammed into the smallest device possible. The OnePlus 7 it looks like we’ll keep a water drop notch at the top, this is going to be a cheaper device and look a lot more like most of the other flagship phones that we’re seeing in 2019.
It’s also rumored that the OnePlus 7, will feature a double camera on the back. And the main sensor will be 48MP with a secondary sensor. Some techie people say: that it will be the TOF sensor; although, considering that the OnePlus 6T had a double camera on the back with to imaging units, we’re not sure OnePlus will take one of those imaging units away just to leave a single camera on the back.
So, it’s more likely to be a secondary zoom camera, than a TOF sensor. But if it is TOF sensor, then obviously OnePlus are expecting most people to go for the OnePlus 7 Pro, because, they’re putting a triple camera on the back of that one. It will be a typical 2019 set up a main set 48MP, you’ll get an ultra-wide camera, a 3 times zoom and telephoto camera as well.
Battery capacity looks pretty good on both of them, 3700mAh for the OnePlus 7 and around a 4000mAh for the OnePlus 7 pro. But with that huge screen you’ll get on the Pro version, we’ll have to wait and see how good the battery life will on this phone. With the 2k display and having 90 Hertz refresh rates, this thing might just drain the battery pretty quickly.
When it comes the RAM, we’ve seen that the rumors point it to the lowest GB. Option, which is 6GB and it go all the way up to the 12GB RAM option, but the last will probably be reserved to the Pro model and possibly even the 5G version.
But, on the spec sheet at least, I think the OnePlus 7 pro seems to be the evolution from the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 7 looks to be a watered down version, you’re not getting too many upgrades from other OnePlus phones. So, the OnePlus 7 Pro in my opinion, is the one that we should be looking at.
When it comes to the price, actually we’ve heard that the CEO himself responded to comments on that were asking about the price on Weibo in China. And he said that $750, is enough to have handset in pocket. Although, sales prices do change depending on the countries and currencies. So, that’s everything you need to know about the coming OnePlus devices, OnePlus 7, 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
