Right after the OnePlus 7 Pro, the much-awaited OnePlus 7 is finally here. We already knew pretty much most of what there was to know about the device courtesy of a slew of leaks. Unlike its Pro variant, the OnePlus 7 has an unsightly notch at the front, but, that's all that differentiates OnePlus' latest offerings (along with one less camera sensor). Let's take a look at what the 'budget' OnePlus offering looks like.
The OnePlus 7 may not rock a 90Hz 'fluid' AMOLED panel like its elder sibling, but it comes with a decent a 6.4″ AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2340×1080 with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 (402ppi pixel density) and five pre-configured display calibration. The device is sandwiched by two layers of Corning Gorilla Glass. However, unlike several other glass-backed flagships out there, the OnePlus 7 still does not support wireless charging.
The OnePlus 7 opts for a dual-camera setup and sports the same 48MP 1/2-inch Sony IMX586 sensor as its Pro variant. That main camera is complemented by a 5MP depth sensor and the front camera has a 16MP sensor. All the software features are pretty much the same as the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The OnePlus 7 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 coupled with either 6 or 8GB of RAM. The base variant comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage while the maxed out version bumps it up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The phone will run Android Pie 9.0 with OxygenOS 9.5 on top. The battery on the OnePlus 7 is a 4,000mAh Li-ion battery that supports OnePlus’ proprietary 25W fast charging and is reportedly 38 per cent faster than OnePlus 6T’s charging speed. It uses the same tried and tested under the screen fingerprint scanner that debuted with the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 7 starts at $599 for the base variant. It will go on sale sometime in June. It will be available in Midnight Gray. A Red version will also be available in select markets. There are two memory/storage configurations to choose from: OnePlus’ pop-ups start from 16th May and will run in 21 cities across Europe. More details can be found here. You can also head over to OnePlus.com on 15th May and pre-book your device and receive them by 22nd May.
