Every year, smartphone enthusiasts await the years biggest flagships- the Galaxy S series, the latest Pixel phones, OnePlus phones and many more. A few months before the launch of the phone however, the internet is riddled with many leaks, speculations and rumors about the upcoming phones.
Now, with the launch of the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro around the corner, the web has given us some information and latest reports suggest that both the phones could launch on May 14, a month from now. The latest upcoming phone will compete with the likes of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, OPPO F11 and F11 Pro, and even the Huawei P30 Pro.
Here's all we know from the leaks so far.
Recently, two leaked images of the phone which is said to be the OnePlus 7 Pro were leaked and they gave us an insight into most of the specifications in the smartphone. The leaked images also suggest that the Pro version of the OnePlus 7 will come with a curved display, which is something new for the company. Apart from that, the fact that the company will launch two seperate versions of the phone is also a first for OnePlus. Recently, the tagline of the phone was also leaked- "Go beyond Speed"
Upon comparing the phone to the OPPO F11 Pro, the OnePlus 7 seems to have an edge. The OPPO phone has a capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back and though this makes the unlock faster, it makes the phone looks dated. What's similar about both the phones is the fact that they both have a pop-up front facing camera and a bezel less screen.
Against the Galaxy S10 also, the phone has an edge as it will come at a much cheaper price, in comparison. The speed and performance of the phone will be able to compete with the S10 and in some ways, it would even be a wiser, more economical choice.
The OnePlus 7 is likely to have a 6.5-inch FHD+ display while the 7 Pro will have a 6.67-inch display with curved glass on the side. This time, the phone will be free of notches and bezels as it opts for the more futuristic pop-up front facing camera.
Under the hood, both phones will come packed with the latest and fastest Snapdragon 855 chipset paired with at least 6GB of RAM. Apart from that, the OnePlus 7 also packs in a bigger battery than the OnePlus 6T with 4,150mAH.
This time around, the phones will sport a triple rear camera set-up, which is another first for the company. As per the leaks, the OnePlus 7 will have a primary 12-megapixel sensor with f/1.5 aperture, a 20-megapixel sensor with f/2.6 aperture and a 3D Time of Flight (ToF) sensor along with a popup 16-megapixel front facing shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
As for the OnePlus 7 Pro, it will also house a triple camera set-up. The primary sensor being 48-megapixels, secondary being 16-megapixels and the final one being 8-megapixels. No details about the front facing camera have been revealed yet.
Apart from the two phones, the company will also launch a 5G variant of the phone, thereby making a total of three phones. Though there are no details about the 5G phone, we can expect it to have specifications similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro.
In the past, OnePlus phones have been regarded as some of the best Android phones. Though some may feel that the phones lack in camera performance, it makes up for that in its speed and longevity. Like in the past, OnePlus phones have paved the way for many new technologies and this year too, the company is all set to make waves with their new phones.
