Company OnePlus has made a name for himself by creating a smartphone with excellent and unique design and flagship specs, but selling it much cheaper than its competitors, making the smartphones with similar characteristics. OnePlus 7 expected by many, in theory, should continue this trend, but how will we know for sure yet. What characteristics it will have? How will he look like? How much will it cost? When can we see him?
In this article, we have collected all the information about the OnePlus 7, which are known to us at the moment.
The name and release date
In terms of the names of their product is to pay tribute to the OnePlus. Starting in 2016, every year the company just changes the name of your smartphone number and in the end of the year produces a slightly improved model with suffix “T”.
While numbered from one year to undergo significant changes and really can be called a new generation of devices with suffix “T” in the title usually are modified and, if anything, the “sleek” version, released in the same year, flagship. Given the fact that the latest company is called OnePlus 6T, this year we expect OnePlus 7.
With regard to the date of the announcement OnePlus 7, rumors on this subject. Remembering that OnePlus 5 and 6 OnePlus was launched in June 2017 and may 2018, respectively, the expected announcement of the OnePlus 7 around the same time – may-June.
Additional features and “chips”
As in the previous phones OnePlus, we expect OnePlus 7 is a powerful smartphone. Rather, it will put a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 855, at least 6 GB of RAM, large battery, large display and an improved fingerprint sensor under the display. According to a recent leak, we can also count on triple main camera.
Unfortunately, there is one feature that we see in the OnePlus 7 wireless charging. In an interview with CNET CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau (Pete Lau) said that wireless charging is not as efficient and not as in demand as quick wired charging. Anyway, OnePlus is a strong argument in the direction of wired charging – the company is able to charge the OnePlus 6T from 0 to 60 percent in just 35 minutes. While wireless charging reach those speeds, it will take a lot of time.
But still, we see an increasing number of flagships with the possibility of wireless charging. Even Apple joined the “party” starting with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X in 2017.
What else do you know for sure OnePlus 7 will not support 5G. According to a representative of OnePlus, the company’s first smartphone with support of networks of the fifth generation will introduce a new line of smartphones, which will be separate from the main line, which is OnePlus 7. Does this mean that OnePlus 7 will be the last representative of his line, and then the company will replace it with another, or should we still expect by year end OnePlus 7T.
OnePlus 7: Design
It seems that while there is no consensus about how it will look OnePlus 7. According to the leak in January 2019, 7 OnePlus will have a mechanical module pull out the top which will accommodate a camera and sensors.
The problem is that on the leaked photo does not show the sliding module, and the smartphone found the so-called custom case. At the same time, we do not see any holes in the display, as has happened many flagships in recent months. The screen looks completely frameless and against this there is only one assumption – the camera is really located in a removable module.
It is also likely to use glass for the back panel. This solution is similar to what we saw in last year’s OnePlus 6 and 6T.
We hope that OnePlus 7 will be allocated from the point of view of design. Different body colors are always good, but OnePlus is committed to borrow the design from the sister company OPPO. Although the smartphone Find X and proved that the OPPO has a great design decision, we still hope that OnePlus 7 will not go for the favorite competitors path “copy/paste”.
The Cost Of OnePlus 7
As I wrote in the beginning, the company OnePlus is famous for its top smartphones for a very reasonable price. So we can safely expect that this philosophy will continue with the OnePlus 7. However, we see that the cost of the basic model increased with each iteration.
- OnePlus One – 299 $
- OnePlus 2 – $ 329
- OnePlus 3 – $ 399
- OnePlus 3T – 439 $
- OnePlus 5 – 479 $
- OnePlus 5T – $ 499
- OnePlus 6 – $ 529
- OnePlus 6T – 549 $
Based on this price increase, we can expect OnePlus to 7 will cost at least $ 569, and can be, and more. Yes, the cost of the OnePlus is growing, but at the same time, the flagships of competitors simply pierce the ceiling with their prices above a thousand dollars. Amid the brazen competitors, I believe OnePlus 7 for alleged 569 dollars is still a great deal.
