On our way to summer we can look forward to two things: the warmer weather and the release of the latest OnePlus device. This time, OnePlus will have a hard time doing, as the 6T is one of the best phones in years. Based on the latest rumors they are up to the challenge.
Partnering with T-Mobile, the OnePlus 6T is in the hands of millions of Americans who may never have heard of the brand. That's what makes OnePlus 7 so important. For many, this will be the OnePlus update cycle for the first time. If the changes are small or the price is too high, they will be left to the larger OEMs. But if they can make a worthy successor, they will have lifetime fans and slowly increase their market share in the US.

The OnePlus 7 is equipped almost without a frame without a display. The front-facing camera now jumps out of the frame and leaves more room for the 6.5-inch screen. The rear cameras were this time upgraded to three cameras, with the main camera is a 48-megapixel sensor. It will continue to use the all-glass design with aluminum frames and is powered by a huge 4,000 mAh battery. There is also a Pro version, a first for OnePlus.
According to Ishan Agarwal (a notable loser), the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro will launch on May 14th. This means that pre-orders should arrive either on the same day or within a week, with the phone being released on May 21st.
- Release Date: May 21, 2019
- Pre-Order Date: May 14, 2019
- Date of Notice: May 14, 2019
While there are no Rumors about specifications have resulted, we can make some assumptions regarding the storage capacities. We know that OnePlus will come in several variants, with the new Pro model featuring the highest specifications.
With OnePlus always pushing the limits in specifications, we believe that OnePlus 7 will be no exception, especially with the increase in popularity thanks to the T-Mobile partnership. We expect a minimum of 128 GB of internal memory, but we firmly believe that they will choose 256 GB instead of the base model. This would still give the OnePlus 7 more internal base memory than most flagship ships this year and more than offset the lack of expandable memory.
This year, for the first time becoming a pro model, we expect OnePlus to get going. It would be surprising if the OnePlus 7 Pro does not start with 512 GB, because it uses either the same space as the base memory or twice the memory space and does not scream "Pro". Our guess is that OnePlus 7 Pro will be offered in a 512 GB and 1 TB model (depending on when Samsung makes that storage capacity available), with OnePlus 7 Pro replacing the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.
As On previous phones, OnePlus is unlikely to add support for microSDs. However, with 256GB as the base model, most users should not have full memory issues.
- Memory Available: 128GB (OnePlus 7), 256GB (OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro), 512GB (OnePlus 7 Pro)
- Expandable Memory: No
OnePlus is aware of its ever-increasing prices. Every year, fans see the price of the latest OnePlus phone increase slightly, further narrowing the gap between it and the flagship of the same year. We expect it to be no different this year, with alleged specifications, including some significant upgrades, that should require a substantial price increase.
We speculate that the price will rise from $ 50 to $ 70 to $ 629 to $ 649. With the supposedly forward-looking pop-up camera, a triple back camera array on the back, a large battery and a possibly improved in-display fingerprint scanner, there is little chance that OnePlus can work even better and still make a profit ,
At this price, it would still be cheaper than almost all other US flagships. We're talking about $ 250- $ 270 cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S10 and $ 50- $ 80 cheaper than the Nokia 9 PureView with its year-long SoC.
As for the OnePlus 7 Pro (which we're somewhat skeptical of), based on what we know, the price should be around $ 50- $ 70 more than the highest version of the OnePlus 7. If the highest version of the OnePlus 7 is $ 699, and the OnePlus 7 Pro will be about $ 699- $ 729 approximately the same as last year's OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.
Giztop has released a listing of the regular OnePlus 7 with a price of $ 569. If that's the case, the company could lower the price of their phone for the first time. OnePlus phones were known for these early releases from online stores with mixed results. Take this with a grain of salt. Although the success of the T-Mobile partnership may allow a lower price, it is still unlikely.
- Price: $ 569-649 (OnePlus 7), $ 699-772 (OnePlus 7 Pro)
Based on leaked images and previous iterations, we expect OnePlus to be the all-glass design language of the OnePlus 6T continues. We already know that the back of the glass is not a sign of wireless charging, as CEO Pete Lau has already confirmed that OnePlus 7 has no support. However, we expect an aluminum center frame to provide first-class feel and durability.
- Frame: Glass (front and back), aluminum (center frame)
- Finish: Unknown
According to Giztop, the OnePlus 7 becomes much larger be as his predecessor of the T-series. Apparently, it's rumored to increase its height from 6.20 inches to 6.35 inches. It will also be slightly wider and thicker, with the latter expected to offset the increase in battery capacity. As with previous OnePlus phones, we do not expect official IP water resistance as this rating increases the cost of the phone.
For the OnePlus 7 Pro, we have no idea of the dimensions. It gets bigger, wider, and thicker than the OnePlus 7, because a large display is supposed to be there. While there was no talk about a larger battery capacity, there is a good chance that the larger display will be compensated, which would affect the thickness.
Carrier support is expected to be the same as the OnePlus 6T with official support for T-Mobile (including a carrier variant) and the ability to use it with AT & T as the required tapes have been added. Since the OnePlus 6T was compatible with Verizon, we expect the 7 to do the same, and possibly the sprint, giving them the opportunity to officially endorse all four major US carriers. However, this is just wishful thinking on our part.
- Height: 6.35 inches (OnePlus 7), Unknown (OnePlus 7 Pro)
- Width: 3.00 inches (OnePlus 7), Unknown (OnePlus 7) 7 Pro)  Depth: 0.35 in (OnePlus 7), Unknown (OnePlus 7 Pro)
- Weight: Unknown
- Dust / Water Resistance: No official rating
- Supported Carrier: Verizon, AT & T, T-Mobile
- Infrared Blaster: no
We do not know what temperature, altitude and relative humidity of the OnePlus 7 are out of service until its official release. However, with most phones operating at the same temperatures, we can assume that not only the 6T but most other smartphones are within reach.
- Operating Temperature: 32 ° F -95 ° F
- Decommissioning Temperature: Unknown
- Relative Humidity: Unknown
- Operating Height: Unknown
Outside a major upheaval, you can expect the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro to run the latest version of Android 9.0 Pie. Android 10 (Q) should not be ready at this point, but it's possible that a beta version will run if Google chooses public beta just like last year.
OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are running the latest version of Oxygen OS. At the moment this is version 9.0.12. It should run v9, but it will probably run a newer version than the latest version of the OnePlus 6T, as it usually contains some tweaks to the new hardware.
There are rumors that OnePlus will do this once again. Resize the screen with the next iteration. This time, there will be an increase from 0.09 inches to 6.5 inches. Based on leaked photos, the star of the show will be removing the score. While a case manufacturer's leak had the same notch, all other rumors have resulted in a notch-free screen.
With OnePlus 7 Pro, users will notice the biggest differences. According to the leaks, the 7 Pro will have a curved display, a first for OnePlus. Both sides are similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10 + curved. Depending on what you consider curved screens, this can be viewed as a pro or a con. According to rumors, the display should be even larger at 6.67 inches.
Both phones use Oppo and Vivos Design as their users access the front-facing camera. Instead of an upper bezel or notch, both versions of the phone use a forward looking pop-up camera that is pulled out of the frame when you need to use the camera. The result is a seemingly bezel-free phone, whose upper and lower bezel correspond in size to the side edges.
Once again, OnePlus will use its favorite panel, a 1080p screen developed by AMOLED from Samsung. This is an Optic AMOLED, a marketing term for an AMOLED panel recalibrated by the OnePlus team. The OnePlus 7 Pro will improve this by using the new Super Optic Panel, which should bring some improvements over the Optic Display.

The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro will both be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, the latest and best SoC from Qualcomm. This SoC uses a 7nm process that provides significant improvements in energy efficiency and performance. It also uses a new three-tier arrangement with a 2.84GHz gold core, three slightly lower clocked gold cores at 2.41GHz, and four even lower 1.78 core silver cores GHz. This arrangement allows the SoC to consume less battery because each category can better meet the needs of the user.
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
- Chip Size: 7 nm
- CPU Frequency: 2.84 GHz (1x Gold) , 2.41 GHz (3x gold), 1.78 GHz (4x silver)
- CPU cores: 8 cores (4 gold + 4) silver)
- GPU: Adreno 640  Battery
There are rumors that the OnePlus 7 will increase battery capacity to 4,000 mAh again. Oxygen OS is already aggressive in the field of battery management, which is why the OnePlus 6 had an impressive lifetime despite the 3,300 mAh battery. When the 6T arrived with its 3,700 mAh battery, it quickly jumped to the top of battery power, managing battery life better or better than larger-capacity cell phones. If the rumors are correct, the OnePlus 7 will be a battery life steamer that charges for almost two days. There is a chance that OnePlus 7 Pro will increase battery capacity, but we only speculate.
CEO Pete Lau has already confirmed that wireless charging does not come to the OnePlus 7. However, there is a strong chance of OnePlus' new Warp Charge 30 (which was first introduced in the OnePlus 6T McLaren) will be released on the OnePlus 7. This quick charger is an enhancement to its previous technology (formerly known as Dash Charge). This technology is a 30 watt charger (compared to 20 watt in the last version), which allows the battery of the 6T McLaren to be charged to 50% in 20 minutes.
- Battery: Rechargeable Lithium Ion
- Capacity: ] 4,000 mAh
- Wired Charging: Yes, Warp Charge 30
- Wireless Charging: No
Any indication that the OnePlus makes a radical change to the front of the camera. Instead of being placed directly above the display in a bezel or notch, a pop-up mechanism is used. The camera in OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro will rise from the frame of the phone if necessary and hide if you do not.
This change helps in two ways. The first is that it releases the display for a notch-free design to achieve an all-screen front. The second is that it offers comfort for those with privacy. Instead of having your camera always pointed at you and having to rely on the software to protect you from background surveillance, you're now safely stowed away with the camera when you're not using it.

OnePlus also improves the rear view cameras by providing both the resolution and the the number of cameras increased. Similar to Huawei OnePlus uses three cameras, the main sensor is 48 megapixels. With such a high resolution, the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro can capture more detail in each photo. There is also a second 16 MP lens and a third 8 MP lens.
It is possible that the cameras are arranged similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which uses a 40 MP main sensor, an 8 MP telephoto lens and a 20 MP Ultra lens wide lens. Ultrawide lenses will be omnipresent in 2019. Therefore, it makes sense for the 16-megapixel camera of the OnePlus 7. The 8 megapixel lens is a 2x optical zoom telephoto lens for remote shooting. All this is speculated only by us. A recent leaked OnePlus 7 Pro confirmed this information, which we believe will be shared by the non-Pro variant as well.

While no rumors about video performance have arrived, we can make some predictions based on the predecessor and the SoC. First, 4K recording should be possible at 60 frames per second. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 can handle this easily, and the 6T already offered this option on the Snapdragon 845. Slow motion video should also be possible, with the SoC supporting 480 fps at 720p.
- Resolution: 720p, 1080p and 4K (2160p)

With its distance in the 6T, OnePlus is unlikely to bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack so that the OnePlus 6 is the last OnePlus device it contains. Based on its predecessor, it will continue to use a mono speaker, which thanks to Dirac will be enhanced for better sound when no headphones are used.
- 3.5mm Headphone Jack: no
- Stereo Speakers: no
- Microphones: Unknown
- Maximum Speaker Volume: Unknown
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro should support the usual codecs that are found in Android phones.
- Audio: MP3, AAC, AAC +, WMA, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, FLAC, APE, OGG, MID, M4A, IMY
- Video: MKV, MOV, MP4, H.265 (HEVC), AVI, WMV, TS, 3GP, FLV, WEBM
We expect the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro to contain the same sensors as 6T.
- Accelerometer: Yes
- Ambient Light: Yes
- Barometer: No
- Color Temperature: Yes
- Compass: Yes
- Severity: no
- Spinning Top: yes
- Hall: no
- Infrared: no

We're not sure if the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro will update the satellite navigation technology, but we expect at least the same support as the 6T.
- GPS: Yes
- AGPS: No
- Glonass: Yes
- BeiDou: Yes
- Galileo: Yes
- QZSS: No
We know that neither OnePlus 7 nor Pro 7 are the 5G phone OnePlus got annoyed at the Mobile World Congress (that is comes later and not in the US ). While the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 supports up to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), no SoC enabled phone is supported except the Samsung Galaxy S10 offering. This makes us believe that the OEMs need to add support, so the costs do not appear to be saved.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 a / b / g / ac
- Bluetooth: 5.0
- NFC: Yes
- Cellular: nano-SIM
- Port: USB Type-C
For security reasons, the OnePlus 7 and 7 must be observed. Pro uses an in-display fingerprint sensor again. We hope they upgrade to an ultrasound sensor that was not available at the time the 6T was released. The newer sensors let you authenticate when your fingers are wet or dirty, and you can unlock your phone without having to wake up the display first.
- Fingerprint Scanner: Yes, In-Display
- Face Scanner: No
- Iris Scanner: No
- Manual Authentication: Password, PIN, Pattern, Swipe
