- The OnePlus 7 will lack wireless charging as confirmed by CEO Pete Lau
- The phone will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform
OnePlus launched two smartphones last year but this year it will be different. The company may launch three phones which are expected to include the successor to the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T, while the third one could be a 5G phone. At the Mobile World Congress event 2019, OnePlus showcased its 5G smartphone will be available for the consumers to buy very soon, the company said. It is worth noting that none of the 5G devices may head to India as of now, however, smartphone manufacturers and the telecom operators are said to be having trial runs for 5G networks. This means the OnePlus 5G phone will not come to India, but then the successors to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T will launch in the country. It is OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7T.
There’s still time for the OnePlus 7T but looks like OnePlus 7 is already in the works. A new report coming from Pricebaba gives us the first look to the OnePlus 7 3D renders and 360° video. The renders and the video show the OnePlus 7 with pop-up selfie camera on the front and triple rear cameras on the back panel.
OnePlus 7 Renders Leak
Every year, OnePlus followed the design pattern of the Vivo and Oppo phones. With the OnePlus 7 too the company is doing the same. The renders suggest that the OnePlus 7 will borrow its design from the yet to be launched Oppo F11 Pro and the newly launched Vivo V15 Pro. However, the positioning of the pop-up selfie camera of the OnePlus 7 will be different from the Oppo and Vivo phones. Rumours suggest that the OnePlus 7 will launch around the second half of 2019.
With the inclusion of the Pop-up selfie camera, it suggests that the OnePlus 7 will have no bezels on the sides. This means you can expect OnePlus 7 with a fullscreen display. On the back panel, the renders show the OnePlus 7 with triple rear cameras which will be for the first time for OnePlus. Both the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T arrived with dual cameras.
There’s no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor which means the OnePlus 7 will also come with the next-gen in-display fingerprint sensor. Additionally, during the MWC 2019 OnePlus CEO confirmed that the OnePlus 7 would not come with wireless charging support. Furthermore, the rumours suggest that the OnePlus 7 will come with Snapdragon 855 processor and come bundled with Warp Charge 30 fast charging.
OnePlus 5G Expected to Launch at the End of 2019
As noted, OnePlus is expected to launch three smartphones this year- the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7T and the OnePlus 5G phone. At the recently concluded MWC 2019 tech show, the company showcased its 5G prototype, but it did not allow the media persons to touch the smartphone. Also, except for the screen, OnePlus wrapped the entire body of the 5G phone, probably because the design of the OnePlus 7 might have already finalised and the Chinese company doesn’t want to leak it months ahead of the launch.
