OnePlus 7 & OnePlus 7 Pro Specifications
Even though OnePlus has been teasing the release of both of its latest premium smartphones, most revelations have been centred around the top-end OnePlus 7 Pro variant, with not much disclosed about the OnePlus 7.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is said to deliver a ‘fast and smooth’ experience, and while the ‘fast’ would refer to the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC that has been confirmed to power both the smartphones, the ‘smooth’ here isn’t just for the speedy interface, but also for the display.
The OnePlus 7 Pro display is also confirmed by the company to support the HDR10+ display standard, and it will also support Netflix HDR streaming. OnePlus adds that the display on the OnePlus 7 Pro has been awarded an A+ rating by DisplayMate, an established display testing firm. Finally, in the lead up to the launch, OnePlus has also confirmed something that has only been rumoured in the past – a “no-notch, edge-to-edge display” – cementing the use of a pop-up selfie camera that’s also been tipped in the past. On the other hand, leaks indicate the OnePlus 7 would retain the waterdrop-shaped notch seen on the OnePlus 6T and feature a regular selfie camera within that notch. The OnePlus 7 display is also said to carry a full-HD+ resolution, just like its predecessor.
Finally, in terms of teasers, it is confirmed the OnePlus 7 Pro would feature a triple rear camera setup, capable of 3x optical zoom and featuring an ultra-wide-angle lens camera.
As per leaks, OnePlus 7 Pro will be dual-SIM (Nano) smartphone that runs OxygenOS based on Android Pie and features a 6.67-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) Fluid AMOLED display with a pixel density of 516ppi, and a 90Hz maximum refresh rate. The smartphone is said to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC, paired with the Adreno 640 GPU and up to 12GB of RAM.
Additionally, it is said to sport a 4,000mAh battery with support for 30W Warp Charge (5V/6A). Apart from the regular sensors on board, the OnePlus 7 Pro is also said to have an in-display fingerprint sensor, something we’ve already seen on the OnePlus 6T. It is said to have dimensions of 162.6×75.9×8.8mm and weigh 210 grams.
On the other hand, the OnePlus 7 is said to offer very similar specifications as the OnePlus 7 Pro, but with a few differences such as a 6.4-inch full-HD+ 60Hz display, a smaller 3,700mAh battery, and a smaller footprint as well with dimensions of 157.7×74.8×7.1mm.
