OnePlus will introduce at least two models of phones on May 14 in what the manufacturer indicates will be its most ambitious launch event. The company plans to debut the 7 series of phones in a coordinated event that takes place in multiple cities around the globe.
With but a few weeks to go before they formally arrive, there has been no shortage of rumors for the so-called OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.
Reportedly, the OnePlus 7 will feature a massive 6.4-inch display with a water drop cutout display and pack a 48-megapixel rear camera. It’s alleged that a secondary camera will be included but the specifications are not clear.
As for the OnePlus 7 Pro, it’s suggested that it will have a screen size of 6.64-inches or 6.67-inches with curved edges. Rather than two cameras, this one could have three sensors with a 48-megapixel main sensor, a telephoto lens, and an ultra-wide camera.
Interestingly, the 7 Pro is expected to have a a pop-up selfie camera which eliminates the notch in the display. Also of note, it should feature a “breakthrough” display which has been rumored to have a 90Hh refresh rate.
It’s not all rainbows and puppies, though, as the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t look to include wireless charging. A 5G variant of the 7 Pro could also make its debut as part of the announcement.
