OnePlus has finally revealed the OnePlus 7 family of devices a few minutes ago. After months of long rumors and leaks, it’s finally official.
Like the rumors insisted, the OnePlus 7 Pro was the star of the show. We finally had our look at the OnePlus 7 Pro’s new hardware and the incredible new Fluid AMOLED display under the hood. In addition to that, we finally get to see OnePlus jumping aboard what its cousins have been doing so far, including a pop-up camera. That leads the device to feature a 93% screen-to-body ratio.
OnePlus has also insisted that the new fingerprint sensor has also been upgraded. OnePlus says that the new display featuring the under-display fingerprint sensor would not only be faster but would also be much more secure than that of the OnePlus 6T.
Aside from the specs themselves, the display had been the major talking point of the OnePlus 7 Pro throughout the keynote, and rightfully so. Not only has OnePlus completely adapted to the bezel-less formula that its cousins, Oppo and Vivo, have been perfecting for a while, but has also managed to bump up the resolution on the OnePlus 7 Pro to QHD compared to the all-so-methodical 1080p displays we’ve been seeing from these “flagship killers”.
800-nits of brightness is what the 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display on the OnePlus 7 Pro touts, along with that 3120 x 1440 resolution.
Now OnePlus isn’t the first to introduce such a panel to a smartphone. I mean, Asus had introduced a 1080p 90Hz display last year with the ROG Phone and Razer has been, on the other hand, been banking on that 120Hz IPS display for the past two years. However, what OnePlus has done is bring the best of both, Razer and Asus to the playing field.
OnePlus then showcased some worthy examples of how reliable the pop-up camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro is. OnePlus showcased an alleged demonstation of how strong the pop-up camera is by hanging a 22kg weight to the camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The 48MP IMX 586 sensor is here, acting as the main camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Furthermore, the device has also been bundled with two more cameras to keep up with the trends of 2019. On the back, alongside the main 48MP sensor, you’ll find a 16MP ultra-wide shooter and an 8MP 3x-zoom telephoto shooter.
Like many other companies, OnePlus also bragged about how they’ve snatched the first place spot on DxOMark’s charts from the likes of Google and Huawei. However, only real-world tests would tell how much of a magic OnePlus has actually done on these cameras.
Coming over to some of the major features the OnePlus 7 Pro features, you’ll be happy to see the newly introduced vibration motors along with the introduction of dual stereo speakers here.
Regarding the rest of the specifications, expect nothing out of the ordinary. With the OnePlus 7 Pro, you’re looking at a Snapdragon 855 SoC, upto 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, 12GB of RAM, 10-layer vapor-chamber liquid cooling, and a 4000mAh battery with Warp Charge 30.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is set to launch for a decent price of just $669, $699, and $749 for the 6/128GB variant, 8GB/256GB variant, and 12/256GB variant, respectively.
Coming over to the neglected OnePlus 7, you would be happy to know that it’s still here. Aside from it being neglected at the OnePlus 7 New York keynote, OnePlus did make sure that it made its presence in India.
The OnePlus 7 is basically the OnePlus 7 Pro, in the body of the OnePlus 6T, minus the 12GB of memory, the QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display, and the pop-up camera.
However, the price of the OnePlus 7 still makes it a cheesy option if you want some of that OnePlus sugar. Over in India, the OnePlus 7 is set to retail for ₹32,999 and ₹ 37,999 for the 6/128GB and 8/256GB variant, respectively.
For folks who have their eyes peeled on one of the cheesy colors OnePlus has announced today, you would have to wait until May 17th for the Mirror Grey OnePlus 7 Pro and until May 28th for the Nebula Blue variant. If you want to take it a step further, the OnePlus 7 Pro in Almond would be available somewhere June and would launch alongside the OnePlus 7.
For those who were anxious about 5G, apparently OnePlus showcased the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G briefly. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G features the new Qualcomm X50 5G model. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G would exclusively be available with the UK carrier, EE. Regarding the availability date, that seems to be unknown as of yet, but that’s about it for the OnePlus keynote.
