First Look at the Upcoming OnePlus 7, Pop-Up Selfie Camera, SD 855, 12 GB Ram
There are a couple of images leaked on the Social Media Website Twitter by @Steven_Sbw claiming to be the upcoming Oneplus 7.
Below image was shared on Twitter which shows a truly bezel-less phone. It comes without a front camera or a notch or even a punch hole camera like the Samsung S10.
However, it is not likely that Oneplus will skip the front camera on the next flagship, but it is going to be a pop-up shooter similar to the Vivo V15 Pro or the Oppo F11 Pro.
Vivo launched the Nex and Nex S previously with the selfie pop-up camera and now both the brands are exploring the pop-up camera in other phones.
Obviously, they would have improved the first generation camera of Vivo Nex and the technology is getting more mature.
We have in the past seen in-display fingerprint scanner first coming on the Vivo phones and then launching on the OnePlus 6T.
To recall, the water drop notch was also launched on the Oppo F9 Pro and later was used in the Oneplus 6T.
Considering Oneplus 6T already have a water drop notch, if Oneplus want to bring some freshness to design they have a couple of options – a pop-up camera, a punch hole display, or a sliding camera.
Since both Vivo and Oppo are testing and trying the POP-Up cameras it is highly likely that the above leak may be true.
There are still a couple of months from the launch of OnePlus 7 but most likely the company will finalize the design during Feb or early March.
What’s More, Expected from Oneplus 7?
A gradient Dual tone back and triple rear cameras
If there is something more enticing than the glass back shiny designs, it is the two-tone gradient finish.
Looking at the Xiaomi Mi 9, it is quite likely that Oneplus may also offer a similar design.
Dual Cameras are SO 2017, it is time to add more cameras. Oneplus 7 in all likely hood will come with triple rear cameras, very similar to the Samsung S10.
It is likely to offer a refined 48 MP primary rear sensor, a wide-angle camera with fixed focus and a telephoto lens with optical Zoom capability.
Add a 32 MP or a similar camera in the V15 Pro to the front and we are game for selfies.
Performance is something, folks at Oneplus takes very seriously. We are pretty sure that the Oneplus 7 will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-Core processor and Adreno 640 GPU.
The Maclaren Edition of OnePlus 6T, already have 10 GB Ram, 12 GB for the Oneplus 7 is highly likely for the top variant.
Considering Oneplus doesn’t want to be left behind in the specs race fuelled by Mi 9 Transparent edition (with 12 GB DDR4X Ram) and the Samsung S10 Plus (12 GB Ram).
It is going to run on the Android Pie with certain tweaks to the Oxygen OS. Google is going to keep the Android Q close to its heart and a USP for the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
OnePlus 7 5G
Oneplus is showcasing a 5G device at the MWC 2019, by the end of this month.
It is not clear if the Oneplus 7 will have the 5G capability for all the models or there will be a limited edition model like the Mi Mix 3 with 5G support.
5G is not coming to India for the next 2-3 years and will take its own sweet time to roll out.
So, I am not bothered much about it in 2019 when buying a phone. But somewhere in the middle of 2020 manufacturers will start pushing 5G supported phones.
We never know, all of the next iPhones may come with the 5G support.
So, that’s all for now, do let me know what you think about the upcoming Oneplus 7.
Launch Date and Price for OnePlus 7
The new Oneplus 7 will launch in May or June 2019 and we can expect a price of $550-$570 in the US and close to Rs. 38,000 in India.
