OnePlus at the MWC 2019 has showcased the prototypes of its upcoming 5G smartphone. When asked about the upcoming flagship; the OnePlus 7, the company’s CEO Lau revealed that he is indeed carrying the prototype of the upcoming flagship in his pocket but chose not to reveal it. However, courtesy of OnLeaks, we are getting to see the renders of the OnePlus 7 giving us a closer look at the design.
Starting off with the changes, we now have a triple rear camera set up at the back and rumors point at a 95% of impressive screen-to-body ratio. To achieve this feat, the company has opted the pop-up mechanism for the selfie camera, which a first for the brand. The OnePlus 7 will sport a 6.5-inches. While the resolution of the screen is not known yet, given the company’s history, it is safe to assume it would be a Full HD+ panel.
As far as the dimensions, the flagship will measure 162.6 x 76 x 8.8mm, and 9.7mm thickness. The USB Type-C port along with the loudspeaker grill is present at the bottom. The top portion accommodates the elevating camera and a secondary mic. You will see the volume buttons on the left edge, and power button along with the alert slider on the right. Since it is a 2019 flagship, it will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 and will be a non-5G handset, since the company is actively working on the 5G model.
The base variant of the OnePlus 7 will pack 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and might go up to 10GB RAM with 256GB storage. It will feature a 4,150mAh battery and run on Oxygen OS based on Android 9 Pie. This is all we know for now, but we expect more details to surface as we move forward. Stay tuned.
