The OnePlus 6T should still be a comparatively new telephone, however it’s now time to sit up for what we assume will likely be known as the OnePlus 7. Whereas OnePlus telephones have been getting costlier, the very fact is that they’re nonetheless far cheaper than different flagship telephones on the market — making the upcoming OnePlus 7 much more thrilling.
Right here’s every little thing we all know concerning the upcoming OnePlus 7 up to now.
Whereas OnePlus telephones have generally competed with far costlier telephones by together with flagship-level specs, there’s one flagship space no OnePlus telephone has bothered to tread but: Wi-fi charging. Will the OnePlus 7 be the primary OnePlus to incorporate the handy tech?
In accordance with OnePlus CEO Pete Lau at MWC 2019, no, it won’t. So far as Lau is worried, wi-fi charging is an inferior model of cable charging, and isn’t one thing OnePlus is seeking to implement. OnePlus prides itself on its superfast cable charging, and boasts of with the ability to refill 50 p.c of a battery in simply 20 minutes — and when in comparison with this blistering pace, it’s merely not value including the comfort provided by wi-fi charging.
What is going to the OnePlus 7 appear to be? As soon as once more, OnePlus might undertake a brand new search for its telephone, and a leak suggests the telephone might use a slider mechanism to cover the entrance digital camera, permitting a full-screen show and not using a notch. We have now seen this strategy on the Honor Magic 2, and the Xiaomi Mi Combine three. A picture, revealed by SlashLeaks, exhibits two telephones in a plastic casing, one with the “slider” mechanism closed, and the opposite with it open. Cutouts for the digital camera and its sensors rise above the display screen and speaker.
As a result of the precise telephone just isn’t pictured, and former leaks haven’t given something away, that is nonetheless hypothesis. It might merely be one of many concepts OnePlus has experimented with for the OnePlus 7, and the ultimate design might not undertake this type.
Earlier than this, Twitter leaker Ishan Agarwal posted a picture of Pete Lau and different OnePlus executives in a gathering, and on a display screen, we will see a purple system with a Moto-esque digital camera module. It’s onerous to inform precisely what number of digital camera sensors are in that module, however it looks like there could possibly be as many as 4.
It’s essential to notice that this is probably not the OnePlus 7 — it may as a substitute be OnePlus’ upcoming 5G telephone, which is able to launch in Europe in 2019.
