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.

Ok, so the OP7 is mainly a tweaked OP6T which was mostly a tweaked OP6. Aside from the SD855 and perhaps a slightly better camera, what are we really gaining over the 6/6T? OP7 Pro looks a little more like an upgrade with the a more significant camera upgrade, faster storage, faster charge, and better screen. Question is - will it be worth a $200 premium? Guess we'll have to wait and see, but I'm inclined to say no at this point.

Well, everything nowadays is largely the Last Thing improved a bit. And it's pretty common to say that if you have the Last Thing, them the New Thing isn't worth the update. I'm a bit disappointed that One Plus is doing the price creep. The price was a big attraction to the brand.

As a OnePlus 6 user since the day it was launched, I completely agree with you. I'd rather pay $999 (it sucks though) for a Note10 than paying $650 - $700 for a OnePlus 7 pro. S10 would be even a better deal price wise.

One plus 6 screen is not usable under bright sun

Very well said. I'm still using a note 4 (love it btw) but I'm not downgrading from 1440p to 1080p. I'd love to get the op7, not the pro, for the reasons you just stated

galaxy s10e was going for $450 with taxes after .edu discount and any android (ANY) trade in. my family members got a few with no issues. what's up with these prices??? the 7Pro should have been the only phone, and at $600, no need for the recycled 6t

How come no periscope zoom lense like its sister device Oppo Reno 10x?

I think a 3x zoom makes more sense than 5x TBH. With a 48MP camera, you can do lossless zoom upto 2x at 12 MP directly (digital zoom), then go from 2-3x using hybrid zoom and multi-frame processing. Then you have your 3x zoom, with which you can do hybrid zoom till about 5-6x. Basically, if they execute it right, they can get a continuous, good zoom till about 6x, which will be great. P30 pro goes upto 10x hybrid but it doesn't work properly between 3-5x, which I think is a major miss and where it will be most useful to most folks. I don't think they will execute it right though, sadly :(

Still no ip68 rating

No mention of ip68 rating, wireless charging, or periscope zoom lens but they want to increase their pricing to fight the big boys (S10, P30, LG G8).

They are not fighting the big boys anymore, they think they are established already.

I switched from the 6T to the S10+ and now that we see they're going to be around $769 before tax for the base OP7 pro I'm not interested in OP. Plus the US will end up getting the 8gb model which will push it to $800... better off with LG G8 or any of the Galaxy s10's depending on what size you want. At least with the G8 and s10's you get an IP rating, wireless charging and more secure devices G8 has face ID and S10 has better fingerprint scanners

At this rate, they'll pretty much soon go premium and join the 1k club. Then we'll need a new flagship killer.

It's going to be weird when the Google Pixel is going to be the new budget phone and One Plus the overpriced one.

The regular 7 seems like a really lazy effort to revise the design of the 6T. It's essentially identical with a new SoC and different camera sensor. I can't say that I'm inspired by that decision at all.

Is there a compact version too?.. 5-5.5" phone?

These screen sizes are getting rediculous ffs.. can't wait for the Motorola razr tbh

I hope the curved edges for the Pro version isn't true. This 'curved edge screen equals premium' nonsense should stop.

Well, one plus lost its edge. Prices keep going up and up. I like the one plus 7 pro, but not for that price. Like the comment above, that should've been the one plus 7, just released that. The one plus 7 base phone is kinda a joke
