What’s expected –
Over the past week OnePlus revealed the body layout, then we had revelations putting the phone piece by piece. What’s sure is that the company would be launching at least two OnePlus variants, the OnePlus 7 and the premium OnePlus 7 Pro.
The phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, making it “fast and smooth”. OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to be a gaming focussed smartphone with an unconfirmed QHD+ resolution. The OnePlus 7 Pro display is also confirmed by the company to support the HDR10+ display standard, and it will also support Netflix HDR streaming. The phone would be an edge to edge display with no notch. It’s cemented to have a pop-up selfie camera.
On the other hand, leaks indicate the OnePlus 7 would retain the water drop-shaped notch seen on the OnePlus 6T and feature a regular selfie camera within that notch. The OnePlus 7 display is also said to carry a full-HD+ resolution, just like its predecessor.
A triple camera setup is expected for the OnePlus 7 Pro, with 3x optical zoom and ultra wide angle camera lens. While the OnePlus 7 will feature a dual rear camera setup instead. Both the phones will have some reasonable amount of water resistance.
In terms of software, both phones will run on OxygenOS based on Android Pie.
