One of the most updated flagship smartphones of 2019, the Oneplus 7 Pro is finally unveiled at its launch event that took place in London, New York, and Bengaluru simultaneously on Tuesday, May 14. With the launch of the new smartphones, OnePlus 7 Pro has promised that it will deliver a much-upgraded performance and camera quality as compared to the earlier Oneplus 6 and Oneplus 6T.
The OnePlus7 Pro boasts a large 6.7″ display. The display boasts of being notchless, with no holes providing a pure screen. The Oneplus 7 Pro features a new display called ‘Fluid AMOLED’. It is a Quad HD+ display (with a resolution of 3120*1440) with a pixel density of 516 ppi and an impressive 800 nits brightness. OnePlus says that the Fluid AMOLED display has a refresh rate of 90 Hz which is the fastest for any AMOLED smartphone display in the market. The display supports HDR10+ and an updated Night Mode.
As expected, underneath the screen is an optical fingerprint scanner that OnePlus claims are twice as large as the scanner that was in the 6T. It will initially be available in either a glossy black finish or a matte blue colour, while a gold-toned model will be available at a later date.
With curved edges on both the front and rear of the phone, it is not like any other OnePlus device. We get a new feature known as horizon light, which allows detecting notification in the form of a ray of light trace the outer edges of the curved display. The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with an Adreno 640 GPU. The RAM can me maxed up to an impressive 12 GB mark. This would give a major performance upgrade as compared to the OnePlus 6 and 6T.
Coming to the optics, we get a 48 MP shooter, 3x telephoto lens and an ultra-wide sensor with a field of view of 117 degrees in the main camera at the back. Beneath the edge-to-edge display on the OnePlus 7 Pro is a 16-megapixel front-facing pop-up camera which is claimed to slides out in just 0.53 seconds. To increase durability against the fall of the device, the front-facing pop-up camera will automatically retract when it detects a fall.
Other impressive specifications include stereo speakers which are a debut in OnePlus phones. We get a 4,000mAh battery with a Warp Charge charging system which claims to reach “almost half” of battery capacity in just 20 minutes. OnePlus 7 Pro is also the first OnePlus phone to command a truly premium price: at $669 to start and going to $749 for a fully equipped 12GB / 256GB model. The OnePlus 7 Pro is a full $110 more than the 6T cost when it was released just six months ago.
