On May 14th, OnePlus is expected to launch OnePlus 7, its next flagship, in addition to a souped-up OnePlus 7 Pro version. It is not surprising to know that pictures of the premium OnePlus 7 Pro have been leaked online ahead of schedule, a development made possible by WinFuture.
And to be candid, there isn’t much to see here. From those pictures, the design of the OnePlus 7 Pro is very similar to that of the OnePlus 7, already leaked. But hey, that’s a good thing because the OnePlus 7, as well as its bezel-free display (achieved with a sliding camera), look quite cool in the leaks.
More interestingly, the OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone is reportedly shown in the form of its display that will feature an option Pete Lau, OnePlus CEO, calls a “breakthrough” panel. Though we are still not privy to much details on what Lau is referring to exactly, WinFuture rehashes the present rumor that the OnePlus 7 Pro will come with a faster refresh rate, of 90Hz, for its display that — like those featured on gaming smartphones such as the Razer Phone — will provide you with a smoother experience for animations.
OnePlus has equally given life to the speculation that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be sold as a 5G option; however, if there are any hardware or cosmetic changes between this variant and the typical OnePlus 7 Pro version, we will need to wait until the company unveils the mobile device itself.
The remaining parts of OnePlus 7’s leaked specs are also remarkable. These include a Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, stereo speakers, a bigger 4,000mAh battery, a triple-camera array, 6GB – 12GB of RAM, a Qualcomm 855 processor, depending on the phone model.
According to The Verge, the OnePlus 7 Pro could beat the Samsung Galaxy Fold to become the first smartphone to feature UFS 3.0 storage.
Vlad Savov from The Verge says: “[w]hen the iPhone doesn’t change, Android phones get weird.” We have seen swivel-camera pop-up smartphones, penta-camera smartphones, wearable smartphones, 21:9 smartphones, foldable smartphones, and many others. However, no matter how crazy the new Android flagship devices’ cameras and designs get, the same basic hardware still persists. This includes similar batteries, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, bezel-less displays, and fast wired charging.
We await further details on its specs, release date, and price.
