OnePlus 7 pops up on e-tail website, reveals specs and price
Up-and-comer OnePlus has been gaining a steady momentum for the past few years. Initially, it was a company known only to hardcore smartphone fans, who were awestruck by the bang-for-the-buck devices offering flagship performance at half the price. But it has certainly managed to carve itself a spot in the mainstream, especially since it secured a deal with T-Mobile to sell its handsets directly to customers in the US.

So, a new OnePlus phone is always exciting. We all want to know what kind of crazy tech the company is going to fit in there while still keeping the phone much, much cheaper than the more popular flagships. For example, the 6T had an in-display fingerprint scanner, yet still started at $550. Not shabby at all!

Now, a listing for the yet-unannounced OnePlus 7 has popped up e-tail website GizTop (via Ausdroid), revealing all the specs and price of the upcoming “flagship killer”!



As per the listing, the OnePlus 7 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, and versions of 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage or 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. All of this would be powered by a hefty 4,000 mAh battery. And the price still stays extremely reasonable, starting at $570

And the cameras? Oh, all the sweet rumors get reaffirmed here. The main module on the back would have 3 cameras, the listing says — 48 MP, 20 MP, and 5 MP. Why all the megapixels? Rumor has it that the OnePlus 7 will inherit the 10x lossless zoom technology from its cousins made by Oppo.

As for the selfie camera — the listing says it will be a “pop up”, reaffirming recent rumors that the OnePlus 7 would hide the selfie snapper in a mechanical module, which only comes up when you need it. This would, supposedly, ensure that the phone has an edge-to-edge screen with no notches or cutouts.

Now for the bad news


Such a listing appears for one of two reasons. Either someone at the website made an oopsie and published it early (or the site just doesn’t care enough about leaking this stuff), or it’s just a placeholder that keeps the page prepped for when the phone actually comes out.

And we have some evidence that this might just be a placeholder. For one, looking at the screen description under the specs tab, it says the display would have a waterdrop notch. Why have a notch there if the selfie camera is hidden in a pop-up mechanism?



Then, looking at the weight stat — it says the OnePlus 7 would be 185 g. That’s exactly the same as the OnePlus 6T. Not that it’s impossible for both these models to weigh the same, but it’s starting to look a whole lot like the page’s specs listings were based on existing leaks and the blanks were filled with OnePlus 6T stats.

But hey, it might as well be a mixture of both — a bunch of specs obtained by reliable leaksters with some fields copied from the OnePlus 6T sheet, just so the page doesn't look empty. In any case, it’s still a bit early to hold your breath for an official OnePlus 7 announcement or release. The OnePlus 5 was announced in June the OnePlus 6 came out in May. So, the 7 might see the light of day in April at the earliest, but the May-June period is more probable. The OnePlus 6T will be 6 months old on the 1st of May and we know that the company likes to have half a year between its phone releases.

I really hate the 19.5:9 aspect ratio, my brother has the oneplus 6t and it is so tall I hate it, peronally I prefer the old 16:9 aspect ratio the most but 18:9 is as far as I'm willing to go, and I prefer the screen size to be 5.7 like on the lg g6, I wish the pixel 4 will have a screen like that with reduced bezels, then I'm willing to buy it.

Sounds like you might be better off with the Galaxy 10e. I know it has a smaller screen, but not sure about the ratio. I like the 18:9 ratio on my V30, and I agree 19.5:9 is a little too much. At least it isn't that crazy 21:9 Sony is using this year.

The smaller screen doesn't make a huge difference unless you use your phone horizontally a lot, otherwise the width of the phone is just about the same as the regular S10.

Me too that's why I got the S10e even though its still tall, at least it's in a smaller package!

I prefer 16:9 as well. It makes browsing comfortable!

Still wish Oneplus phones had Usb-C to Hdmi out. I use that all of the time at work and none of the other androids offer it but Samsung.

If this comes out and is under $600, then it'll be a great buy. I'd still like to have a 3.5mm jack, but it's not a deal breaker for me anymore. If it ends up with a 4150mAh battery, it'll be great.
