Surprising report claims that we will catch a glimpse of the OnePlus 7 tomorrow
According to an online report from the U.K. newspaper Daily Express, we could see our first look tomorrow of the OnePlus 7. Previous reports said that the company will hold a closed door event at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, presumably to show off a prototype of the its first 5G phone. But the aforementioned report out of the U.K. indicates that OnePlus will give the public a glimpse of the OnePlus 7 tomorrow.

The report adds that the next OnePlus 4G model will feature a big design change. Last week, a photo leaked that claimed to show the OnePlus 7; instead of a notch or a punch hole camera, the phone in the photo has a slider mechanism like the one found on the Oppo Find X. Oppo and OnePlus share the same Chinese parent, and OnePlus often, uh, borrows features first found on an Oppo phone. But, and this is a huge but, there is no guarantee that the leaked image is legitimate.

If the OnePlus 7 is a slider, it would be a big change from the current OnePlus 6T model, which sports a waterdrop notch. The latter is the first T-Mobile handset to be offered by a U.S. carrier, and has helped OnePlus become the fifth most popular premium smartphone brand in the U.S. (according to IDC).

OnePlus founder and president Pete Lau has already announced that the first 5G OnePlus phone will launch in the second quarter of this year, and will not be available in the U.S.

Will the One plus 7 4g be available in the US?

Every 4G version has been available for the US since the company started. I don't see why this would differ.

I hope they don't go with a slider. A slider means smaller battery, since the slider mechanism takes up space. It's also less robust and compromises dust and water resistance. Just give me a notch or hole punch with 4000 mAh battery.

Man I couldn't agree more with this sliding mechanism garbage I just want a simple phone put in a case so if I drop it it doesn't break OnePlus just some advice don't overthink this one
