Of late, there seems to be no phone that is as awaited as the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. Over the past few weeks, we have been seeing a lot of leaks, speculations and rumors about what the phone will be. From what we have seen, this time, OnePlus is making not just a flagship killer, but a flagship phone itself.
OnePlus phones have a history of combining great performance with a low price tag and even better service to consumers. The two phones launched this year are no different and they are bound to shake things up in the smartphone industry.
The screen on the OnePlus 7 is much like the one on the 6T and is only slightly improved. The OnePlus 7 has a screen size of 6.4-inches, which is a bit larger than the one on the 6T. The screen has a resolution of 1080x2340 pixels and an FHD+ display.
The OnePlus 7 Pro on the other hand has a full screen, bezel less display without a notch. The display on the phone is a 6.7-inch QHD+ SuperAMOLED screen with a 1440x3120 resolution, which should make for a crisp viewing experience. Additionally, the OnePlus 7 Pro has a 90Hz refresh rate display that makes everything look much smoother. Apart from that, the display made a few headlines when the company announced a few days back that it will support HDR10 and it got an A+ rating from DisplayMate.
Under the screen, there will be the same fingerprint scanner but this time, it will be faster and more reliable as this is a newer generation of the same technology.
Under the hood is where both the phones shine and even take the cake from the more high end phones. The OnePlus 7 and the Pro variant will come equipped with the latest and fastest Snapdragon 855 paired with at least 8GB of RAM. Options on the OnePlus 7 series can get you RAM up to 12GB and internal storage up to 256GB, which should make for blazing fast performance. The OnePlus 7 Pro will come in three variants- 6GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and an 8GB+256GB. The OnePlus 7 on the other hand will ship in only two variants- 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB.
As for the cameras, this is one area where we should see the most upgrade. Both the phones in the series will come equipped with a triple camera shooter. The OnePlus 7 will have a dual camera setup while the 7 Pro will have triple rear cameras. On the 7 Pro, there will be primary 48-megapixel shooter, a telephoto zoom lens with 8-megapixels and a third ultra wide angle lens to capture more details with a 16-megapixel sensor. As for the OnePlus 7, it will have a dual camera set up and a front facing camera within the notch. The primary sensor in the set up is a 48-megapixel shooter and the secondary one is the telephoto lens with an 8-megapixel sensor.
Moving on to the software and battery, both the phones will come with Android 9.0 out of the box. From a flagship phone in 2019, this is the least you can expect. As for the battery, the company is upping their game. The OnePlus 7 Pro will sport a massive 4,000mAH battery that will have support for warp charging 30, which is said to be faster than previous generation charging speeds. The OnePlus 7 on the other hand will come equipped with a 3,700mAH battery with the same charging speed as the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 7 will go on sale for ₹32,999 for the 6GB+128GB variant and ₹37,999 for the 8GB+256GB variant. The OnePlus 7 Pro will be priced higher and in competition with the Galaxy and Pixel series. The 6GB+128GB variant will go on sale for a price of ₹48,999, the 8GB+256GB version can be purchased for ₹52,999 and the top tier, 12GB+256GB variant is priced at ₹57,999
Along with the two smartphones, the company also announced their new OnePlus Bullets. OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 support the new aptX HD codec support that brings high quality audio and Bluetooth 5.0 to the table. The Bluetooth 5.0 provides a more stable wireless connection, even in large crowds where signals may be disrupted.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 also support the new Warp Charge technology, which raises the charging speed by up to 100% compared to its predecessor. All you need is a window of 10 minutes in your busy schedule to charge up for a playtime of over 10 hours. At the same time, the company has also upgraded the battery density of the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2, boosting its capacity without adding to its physical size.
