OnePlus 7 & 7 Pro detailed extensively: storage, battery, cameras, colors, much more
The OnePlus 6T
The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are still over half a month away but that isn’t stopping them from grabbing headlines. Earlier today, the OnePlus 7’s T-Mobile release date was seemingly revealed. Then, CEO Pete Lau admitted that the OnePlus 7 Pro’s display cost three times more to develop than usual. And now, tipster Max J. is back with his latest leak that details both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro extensively.
The OnePlus 7 – cameras, battery, storage...
As revealed by a set of renders last week, the OnePlus 7 will follow in the OnePlus 6T’s footsteps by adopting a 6.4-inch notched AMOLED display. This will retain the 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340 x 1080p resolution seen previously, suggesting the panel will bring no major improvements.
Accompanying the display will be an in-display fingerprint scanner that is expected to be of the optical variety rather than the quicker and more precise ultrasonic alternative found inside the Galaxy S10.
Also paired with this should be a 3,700mAh battery much like the OnePlus 6T that precedes it. Earlier today this was rumored to support 30W fast charging but it now seems as though the OnePlus 7 will support the standard 20W Warp Charge technology.
Elsewhere on the spec sheet, today’s leak points towards Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 paired with a minimum of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. However, in order to satisfy consumer needs, a variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage is tipped.
Lastly, as revealed previously, the OnePlus 7 will sport a primary 48-megapixel camera that sports an f/1.7 resolution. Earlier, an unconfirmed source suggested this would be accompanied by a 24-megapixel camera, but Max J. believes it’ll actually sit alongside a dedicated depth sensor that boasts a 5-megapixel resolution. Also expected is a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
The OnePlus 7 Pro – cameras, battery, storage...Like the OnePlus 7, the OnePlus 7 Pro will also sport a 19.5:9 AMOLED display. However, this time around it’ll sport curved edges, no notch, a 6.7-inch diagonal, and a 3120x1440p resolution. It’ll also support a new technology that results in a refresh rate of 90Hz, thus creating a smoother user experience.
As expected, this display will also be paired with an in-screen fingerprint sensor that is presumed to be optical. But in order to compensate the larger display, the OnePlus 7 Pro apparently includes a large 4,000mAh battery that supports the 30W Warp Charge 30 technology.
Over in the camera department, the OnePlus 7 Pro is also set to feature a 48-megapixel primary camera. This time around, though, it’ll support a wider f/1.6 aperture for improved low-light photography and both optical and electronic image stabilization (OIS & EIS).
Alongside this sensor, OnePlus 7 Pro buyers can expect to find a 16-megapixel super-wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel sensor paired with a 3x telephoto zoom lens. In terms of selfies, the smartphone should feature the same 16-megapixel snapper found on the OnePlus 7.
The OnePlus 7 Pro will arrive powered by the high-end Snapdragon 855. This will be paired with a minimum of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although an option with 8GB of RAM and double the storage is also being prepared. As an added bonus, a variant with 256GB of storage and a whopping 12GB of RAM will apparently be available too.
In all configurations the OnePlus 7 Pro should support the UFS 3.0 storage standard, meaning users can expect a decent increase in day-to-day performance. The main benefit, however, will be that it allows for the recording of videos with higher resolution and higher frames per second, as well as their playback.
OnePlus 7/7 Pro release date, pricing, colors
The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will go official at an event on May 14th. Sales should kick off globally on May 22nd, but T-Mobile will apparently be selling the OnePlus 7 as soon as the unveiling event finishes.
Pricing for the OnePlus 7 is expected to sit in the region of $579 while the OnePlus 7 Pro could cost $749. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, on the other hand, will be available in just a handful of markets and could retail at around $899.
The OnePlus 7 Pro will be available to buy in three colors according to today’s leak. These are blue, grey, and brown. It’s unclear if the OnePlus 7 will launch in the same finishes.
