OnePlus, which has managed to establish its presence in the premium smartphone market in just few years, is now all set to launch its next-generation flagship smartphone — OnePlus 7.
Earlier, reports about the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus’ 5G smartphone were surfaced online but now, a new report indicates that the company’s flagship smartphone could be making its official debut next month, on 14th May.
While the reported launch date of May 14 is in line with the previous reports, it’s odd that we haven’t heard anything official from the company for its flagship device which is supposed to launch in less than a month.
As said, the company is expected to launch three smartphone models this year — OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, and 7 Pro 5G. The standard OnePlus 7 has model numbers GM1901, GM1903, and GM1905, while the OnePlus 7 Pro variant will have model numbers GM1911, GM1913, GM1915, GM1917. On the other hand, the 5G version will get a model number GM1920.
Last week, full specifications sheet of the OnePlus 7 Pro was leaked last week, which revealed that the smartphone will come with a 6.67-inch Super Optic display. It also suggests that the device will come with triple camera setup on the back — 45 MP + 16 MP + 8 MP. The smartphone will be offered in 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.
If the previous reports are to be believed, then the company has opted for a pop-up front-facing camera design, similar to what we have seen in Vivo V15 Pro and Oppo F11 Pro. This is ensure that the phone has a higher screen-to-body ratio.
Since the phone’s launch is reported to be just a month away, we expect to see more details about the phone to keep surfacing online in the coming days or weeks.
At the Mobile World Congress 2019, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the company will be launching its first 5G smartphone this year. This is in addition to the company’s seventh-generation of its flagship smartphone, dubbed OnePlus 7.
There are reports that the company could launch three smartphones this year, which are expected to be OnePlus 7, a Pro model of the same, and a 5G smartphone. Now, images of the OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone has been spotted online on Weibo.
The leaked images showcase the full-screen edge-to-edge display on the smartphone without any kind of notch and also reveals the phone’s specifications. The phone, which the source claims to be the OnePlus 7 Pro, bears the GM1915 model number.
The image of the “About phone” section in the settings menu shows that the phone is packing 6.67-inch Super Optic display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 flagship chipset. As for the memory configuration, it comes with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.
In the camera department, the device features a triple camera setup on the back, consisting of a 48 MP primary sensor, a 16 MP secondary sensor, and an 8 MP tertiary sensor. The phone is running Android 9 Pie OS with the Oxygen OS on top.
Interestingly, the phone’s model number doesn’t follow the usual numbering strategy of OnePlus, which always starts with the letter “A” dating back to the OnePlus One. The altered model numbering could suggest the device will indeed start a new phone lineup for the 5G-enabled devices, as the China-based company had previously confirmed.
