OnePlus 7 Preview


OnePlus 7 is one of the most anticipated flagships from China in 2019. Over time the date

The release of the new product is getting closer and closer.And based on all the rumors and leaks, you can already draw some conclusions and make a preliminary review of the phone. There are several topics that concern us: what will be new in OnePlus 7, how good the camera will be, will there be any other surprises from the manufacturer besides what we already know about.

Preliminary review

So, let's start with the technical characteristics, about which we already have some idea on the basis of teasers and other chatter on the web:

  • Snapdragon 855, 7 nm processor
  • 6.5«AMOLED screen, Full HD resolution
  • Edge-to-edge display with no cutout in the screen
  • Retractable Selfie Camera Module
  • RAM 6 GB / 8 GB or more
  • 128 GB internal memory
  • Dual SIM support, no microSD
  • 4150 mAh battery
  • No 3.5 mm headphone jack

Of course, the biggest surprise for fansThere will be no notch on the display, thereby achieving an edge-to-edge display with a body-to-body ratio of over 90%. The photo that demonstrates this feature was obtained from the source @OnLeaks.

Since the selfie camera will need to be placed somewherebeyond the screen, the manufacturer will go for a new smartphone design with a slider design. That is, the top of the phone will have a two-piece design. The user will need to quickly move the phone up and down if they want to use the facial recognition system.

We also expect the manufacturer to fixa misunderstanding from the 6T version, namely the fingerprint scanner. It should work faster. The interpretation of the optical sensor in the display that is used in the OnePlus 6T does not suit everyone. A regular sensor works much faster. It is expected that in OnePlus 7 the scanner will cope with its direct task 30% faster. At the same time, the scanner will remain optical, not ultrasonic, as we saw in the Galaxy S10.

Some information about the camera. Oneplus 7 can get a triple camera in the back. There is an assumption that the launch of the new OnePlus 7 coincides with the availability of the new 48-megapixel Sony sensor for phones, and it has great prospects. It uses four pixel-by-one pixel technology, providing a significant improvement in the quality of photos in low light.

This sensor may well be the main, but notthe only one. It is said that OnePlus 7 will be equipped with a triple camera at the back. But until now, rumors pointed to the main lens and an additional camera used to collect additional information about the depth, as well as an ultra wide camera.

As for the front camera, it is, as alreadyas stated above, will be hidden. To turn it on, you will need to activate the retractable mechanism. Every time it will crawl out as soon as you turn on selfie shooting in the Camera application. The mechanism itself is quite fast, but it’s too early to talk about its reliability.

Price and release date.The new OnePlus 7 should be announced in May or June 2019. Its cost, according to preliminary data, will be slightly increased, since it will have a new generation processor and a top-end display. The OnePlus 7 price will start from $580 to $600 for the base model, with the price tag increasing for advanced versions.
