OnePlus has been pretty transparent about its upcoming lineup of products. We already know that the company plans to bring two phones in 2019- OnePlus 7 and the yet unnamed OnePlus 5G phone. On Tuesday, two pictures of the alleged OnePlus 7 Pro has made their way onto the Internet. Posted on Weibo by IT station, the two pictures comprise of a shot of the phone’s about page and the other showcases the curved edges of the upcoming phone.
If these pictures are authentic, this might be our first look at the infamous 5G phone by the company. The “about phone” page reveals a bunch of key specifications along with the model and build number. The name of the phone is stated as OnePlus 7 Pro but interestingly the inset photo being used here is that of the OnePlus 6T. It features a 6.67-inch Super Optic display.
Moving on, the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and the variant in the picture has an 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Being the company’s flagship phone, this isn’t surprising as we are aware that the OnePlus 7 will be one of the first few commercially available phones to run on the state-of-the-art Snapdragon 855 platform. The SD855 also gives the phone 5G capabilities thanks to Qualcomm’s X50 modem.
The pictures also reveal that the phone has been allotted a different model series, GM1915. Up until the OnePlus 6T, the nomenclature that’s been used to designate OnePlus phones have always started with the letter “A”.
There have been rumours about a triple camera setup on the successor to the OnePlus 6 and the leaked picture only corroborates that information. According to the picture, the OnePlus 7 Pro will have three cameras consisting of 48MP + 16MP + 8MP sensors. There is no information about the seflie camera but it is rumored that the upcoming OnePlus phone may have a pop-up camera for selfies.
It is also revealed that the phone in question is running on Android 9.0 Pie with the build number 9.5.1 GM31CB. Generally, the about page on OnePlus phones also display the OxygenOS build but the same isn’t present in the leaked images.
No notch and curved screen
Coming to the second picture, the phone does not have any markings of a waterdrop notch and sports thin bezels on the top. The bottom bezels are slightly thicker and more noticeable. However, the most striking development comes as a part of the screen which is curved towards the edges and is a first for the company. This seems very similar to Samsung’s and Huawei’s curved display implementation. It is quite possible that the regular OnePlus 7 also has the same screen with curved edges.
We’ll know more as we near the official launch of the OnePlus 7 and the alleged OnePlus 7 Pro. Till then, stay tuned.
