After much anticipation, OnePlus newest flagship, OnePlus 7 Pro, has finally debuted. You may have noticed it is a ‘Pro’ model which means, it surely has a non-Pro model, right? Well, as a matter of fact, there is. Strangely though, U.S. markets are made available with the OnePlus 7 Pro only while elsewhere in Europe, including the U.K. France, Denmark, they are getting both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. But more on that in a minute.
Back to the OnePlus 7 Pro… with OnePlus latest flagship killer, it joins the disturbing trend of curved display san the annoying notch or hole punch camera. Instead it took on the pop-up camera route for its 1.0µm 16 MP f2.0 fixed focus selfie camera (the front has electronic image stabilization or EIS too). Because of the pop up camera mechanism, the OnePlus 7 Pro is at 8.8 mm thick. Though not overly thick, it is thicker over phone without pop-up camera.
Completing the clean look is an in display fingerprint sensor under its glorious 6.67-inch 90 Hz 3,120 x 1,440 pixel “Fluid AMOLED” display. As expect of a ‘flagship’, it gets the newest mobile platform from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855, along with up to 12 GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256 GB of speedy UFS 3.0 2-lane storage. Around the back is a triple camera setup comprising of a 0.8µm 48 MP Sony IMX586 sensor fully supporting both OIS and EIS, paired to a f1.6 lens, a 1.0µm 8 MP telephoto f2.4 lens and an 16 MP ultra wide angle f2.2. The triple camera is accompanied by a dual LED flash and supports 3x optical zoom, multi-autofocus (PDAF, LAF and CAF), and totally capable of up to 4K videoing at 30/60fps and super slow motion at up to 1080p at 240fps.
And oh, it has that annoying rear camera bump too, but it being right smack in the middle kind of alleviates the rocking issue by a little. Meanwhile, the front camera makes 1080p videoing at 30fps, supports Face Unlock, HDR, as well as Screen Flash. Other notables include 3D Corning Gorilla Glass, USB 3.1 GEN1 Type-C port, dual nano-SIM slot, Bluetooth 5.0 with support for aptX and aptX HD, and a 4,000 mAh battery with Warp Charge 30 Fast Charging.
As for the ‘lesser’ OnePlus 7, it looks suspiciously like the OnePlus 6T, complete with the teardrop notch. While it may look much like its predecessor, at its heart, it is still very much a flagship, which means it gets pretty much all the good stuff of the Pro.
Features include a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass, In-display fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, up to 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM, up to 256 GB UFS 3.0 2-Lane storage, a 48 MP + 5 MP main camera and a 16 MP front facing camera, and a 3,700 mAh with Fast Charging support.
