OnePlus may be late to the party, but leaks may be suggesting that OnePlus may not be so worried about it. Alleged real-life images of the OnePlus 7 are beginning to make their way to the internet, as well as a few tidbits to support them. In the images that leaked today via a user on the Chinese forum, Weibo, not only do we get to see the OnePlus 7, but we also get to see a tidbit covering the internals of the device.
Aside from the specs, the striking thing about these images is how unique the OnePlus 7 looks. It has the rounded corners and full-view display from the Vivo lineup, but also has the curved sides of the Samsung Galaxy S10 family.
According to the leak, the OnePlus 7 Pro is said to come with a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 855 SoC, 8GB memory, 256GB of internal storage, a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 48MP main shooter, and a whole lot more. Furthermore, the device would be running on Android 9 Pie out of the box it seems.
To fill in the gaps regarding the camera setup, we’re looking at a trio of cameras on the rear with no information about the cameras up front. The triple camera setup on the rear consists of a 48MP + 16MP + 8MP dilemma which prompts me to think about the sensors at play here. Given the price that OnePlus would be retailing the device at, there’s no way OnePlus’s going to the pixel binning 48MP sensor from Samsung. Instead, we’re expecting the OnePlus 7 Pro to feature the IMX 586 sensor from the folks over at Sony. However, that isn’t the only thing that we would want to point out. Furthermore, while we don’t wouldn’t speculate about the 8MP sensor at the back of the device, we would speculate that the 16MP sensor on the back may be the same IMX 519 sensor as the ones on the OnePlus 5T, 6, and 6T.
We would only hope that the trio of cameras on the back of the OnePlus 7 Pro feature unique and incredible focal lengths, just like its rivals back home and ashore have done. Given how pretty much everyone has jumped on the triple-camera setup bandwagon, it would only be natural to speculate that the OnePlus 7 Pro’s triple camera setup consists of the main shooter, ultra-wide shooter, and a telephoto shooter just like everyone else.
Regarding the selfie shooters, it seems like OnePlus would most likely go with a pop-up camera setup like the ones Xiaomi and Vivo have pioneered. Concept renders have suggested that OnePlus would most likely take Xiaomi’s lane to house their cameras on a sliding mechanism. However, only time would tell how good the rumors were.
What’s weird though is the fact that the specs page in the image shows a picture of the OnePlus 6T rather than the OnePlus 7. Furthermore, the device seems to be running a much more toned down version of Android, with a UI that seems to resemble AOSP Pie or some sort. What’s also worth noting is that the device that has leaked is the OnePlus 7 Pro. For the first time, given the name, it seems like OnePlus may release two variants of the device, the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro.
There’s a ton of stuff to be hyped about regarding the OnePlus 7. OnePlus’s CEO has confirmed that the OnePlus 7 would lack wireless charging. And given that OnePlus has been teasing their developments in 5G for more than while, we’re curious how OnePlus plans to move forward as the new cellular standard looms in the background.
