OnePlus 7 is the presumed name for the Chinese tech giant’s next handset that has been rumoured to arrive in three models.
In addition to the standard OnePlus 7, it has also been tipped new devices dubbed the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G could also debut as soon as next month.
Renders for the standard OnePlus 7 recently emerged via Pricebaba collaborating with OnLeaks and showed a handset that looked incredibly similar to the OnePlus 6T.
The hardware has displayed with a similar teardrop-style notch to the 6T and also featured a dual-camera system.
In an article discussing the fresh images, Pricebaba stated the OnePlus 7 could come with a 6.2-inch display which, if accurate, would be smaller than the 6.41-inch panel on OnePlus’ 2018 device.
The outlet emphasised many of the OnePlus 7’s changes will come internally; the smartphone was said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset and have at least 6GB of RAM.
It appears the OnePlus 7 Pro could be the Chinese device that makes a deluge of substantial changes to the product line.
Alleged photos of the more premium handset recently surfaced on Weibo and were shared by teenage tipster Ishan Agarwal on Twitter.
The supposed OnePlus 7 Pro was presented with a notch-free all-screen design and a panel with curved sides.
One image in particular appeared to out some of the device’s specifications.
These included a 6.67-inch display and a triple-camera system, the latter of which was said to be comprised of a 48-megapixel, 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor.
Most recently, Agarwal has insisted one of these sensors will be an ultra wide-angle module.
If such a claim is accurate, the OnePlus 7 Pro could come with a feature that was hugely popular on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The Mate 20 Pro was announced back in October last year and its ultra wide-angle system allowed it to capture incredibly unique shots that were simply not possible on its closest rivals.
We loved the Mate 20 Pro’s wide snapper, as noted in Express.co.uk’s review of the hardware last year.
This publication said: “The wide-angle sensor present allows for much more to be crammed into a shot and is a saving grace when you are struggling to fit a subject into a frame on the standard lens.
“Unlike the telephoto tools present on a number of other flagships, we found ourselves using the wide-angle lens with regularity.
“While the wide-angle system does mean you need to compromise slightly on the quality of your shots as the 20-megapixel sensor is certainly not as capable as the 40-megapixel main lens, the shot differentiation it provides is certainly worth the trade-off.”
In addition to a wide-angle sensor, the OnePlus 7 Pro has also been tipped to have a pop-up selfie sensor that could be controversial amongst Android fans.
While such a system appears set to allow the Chinese device to offer a much higher screen-to-body ratio, such a motorised system will certainly leave many with longevity concerns.
It is worth noting devices from Chinese rivals such as OPPO and Vivo already include such a design choice.
Finally, the OnePlus 7 Pro has also been speculated to include a screen that boasts a refresh rate of 90hz.
Most smartphones have a refresh rate of 60hz – the figure represents how many times a display refreshes per second.
The higher the figure, the smoother navigation will feel as a whole.
OnePlus founder and CEO, Pete Lau, recently took to Twitter and hinted such a feature is coming.
He said: “Excited to share the next product from OnePlus will unleash a new era of Fast and Smooth.
“Especially Smooth! Smooth is more challenging than Fast – a true test of hardware and software.
“The new product is just beautiful – I can’t wait for you to see it!”
Not many details have been outed about the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, however it is anticipated the hardware will retain many of the same design aspects and features as the standard OnePlus 7 Pro but be capable of delivering faster internet speeds.
