We always know that OnePlus phones are amazing. But what if I tell you guys that this time around they are way beyond amazing. Shenzhen brand has unveiled their first ultra-premium flagship device and they call it the OnePlus 7 Pro.
What is the best feature that we could think of in this new ultra-premium device they released? In my opinion, I would say that its the display. The OnePlus 7 Pro has the biggest display of all the OnePlus phones released up to date, 6.67-inches to be exact. They said goodbye to the notch as well bringing in the pop-up selfie camera. OnePlus has a special name to the display its called the “Fluid AMOLED” display. So if we break down what that means I believe the Fluid part has to do something with the displays 90Hz refresh rate, and with that, it also has a Quad HD+ screen which supports HDR 10+, a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and a 3,120 x 1,440 resolution (516ppi).
The OnePlus 7 Pro comes in three different colors – Nebula Blue, Mirror Grey, and Almond. All these colors will have a shining effect similar to the Samsung’s S10 series. OnePlus also has confirmed that they will be releasing cases which support the pop-up camera.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a triple-lens camera attached to its back with the main camera sensor being a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor which has a bright f/1.6 aperture, OIS and EIS. This sensor is 38.4% larger than the one on the OnePlus 6T. The bottom sensor is an 8MP telephoto lens, and the top sensor is a 16MP ultra wide angle camera with a 117 degree field-of-view. The device also supports up to 10x digital zoom.
The pop-up selfie camera the OnePlus 7 Pro has a 16MP Sony IMX471 shooter with EIS. It takes just 0.53 seconds for the camera to pop out. OnePlus also confirms that they have tested the pop-up function of the selfie camera over 300,000 times without any issues.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. It also comes with a 6GB RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage. You also can upgrade this to an 8GB RAM and 256GB non-expandable storage. Or if you think you really need it you can upgrade it to a 12GB RAM/256GB storage exclusively with the Nebula Blue model. The OnePlus 7 Pro UFS 3.0 support. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a large 4,000mAh battery with the new Warp Charge 30 (5V/6A).
The OnePlus 7 Pro’s fingerprint scanner is 36% larger compared to the OnePlus 6T’s fingerprint scanner and also it only takes 0.21 seconds to unlock the phone. Despite the OnePlus 7 Pro having a pop-up selfie camera, they have implemented a software-based face unlock which takes around 0.65 seconds to unlock the phone including the pop-up duration.
The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with the aforementioned stereo speaker pairing which supports Dolby Atmos for mobile.
The OxygenOS also releases some new perks as the OnePlus 7 Pro is launched such as the Night Mode 2.0, screen recording for capturing on-screen video, audio, and external sound via the microphone and Zen Mode which disables everything on the phone except emergency calls and photos.
There are few things that the OnePlus 7 Pro miss which could have made this phone a better flagship. It doesn’t have the wireless charging feature, the 3.5mm headphone jack where as it doesn’t even come with a headphone adapter, it doesnt have the always-on display support aswell.
When it comes to the OnePlus 7 it visually looks very similar to the OnePlus 6T. However the OnePlus 7 still has the waterdrop notch. The display, battery size, overall dimensions of the phone are almost identical to the OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 7 does have some new notable features such as the upgrade to the Snapdragon 855 SoC. And it also gets the primary camera upgraded to the 48MP although the others are just basic 5MP secondary depth sensors. The OnePlus 7 also gets the Dolby Atmos speakers and most of the OxygenOS upgrades also can be seen in the OnePlus 7.
When it comes to the pricing factor the OnePlus 7 Pro pricing starts at $669 for the entry model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and caps out at $749 for the 12GB RAM/256GB storage variant.
