Rumors about the upcoming flagship of Chinese phone-maker OnePlus have already started to circulate although the launching of their OnePlus 7 model is expected to be some time this spring. OnePlus 7 is apparently the first of the two marquee devices believed to launch this year from the OnePlus company.
OnePlus’ strategy of offering similar designs as iPhone and Galaxy S is getting tricky to maintain every year although their premium specs are sold at affordable prices. Pete Lau, OnePlus CEO set a rumor straight when he declared that the new OnePlus 7 would not have wireless charging but their signature Dash Charging technology.
Triple-rear camera and probable price tag
OnLeaks, a serial leaker posted on Twitter apparent critical specs for the OnePlus 7 model, and a price of $569. Specs contain a 6.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 855 chipset, two storage options, a 4,000-mAh battery, and Android 9.0 Pie.
The camera specs will have a triple-rear setup, the one on the front would be a 16-megapixel camera, and the three on the back a 48, 20, and a 5-megapixel camera.
OnePlus 7 technical specs
The Chinese social networking site Weibo shared alleged images of an upcoming OnePlus, on April 11, but it’s unclear if the photos are of the OnePlus 7 or an another OnePlus’ next 5G phone for the device name that was listed is “OnePlus 7 Pro”. That could mean that either OnePlus 7 will have a more higher-end version or that the company will call the 5G phone they are going to release OnePlus 7 Pro sometime.
The leaked images of the phone show that the device could have thin frames, a 6.5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB of RAM.
SlashLeaks has recently posted a leaked image of the OnePlus 7 and a phone case which appears to have a cutout hole on the top edge. This detail might imply that the device may have a pop-up camera like the Vivo Nex and Oppo F11 Pro. The past mock-ups of the device show no gap for the front-facing camera, but on the last leaked image and phone case, the notched camera is clearly displaying on the OnePlus 7 device.
