It is not surprising to see a lot of excitement building over the next flagship from OnePlus, the OnePlus 7. This is because, the predecessor, the OnePlus 6T has had phenomenal run in the markets around the world. And though you can hope that the company may actually release the phone around the month of May 2019 sticking to the one-year gap between the releases, there have rumours and speculations and even images shared on social media about the possible details of the OnePlus 7.  

One such image has surfaced on Twitter and shows a design that has no notch or hole on the main display indicating there may be a popup front camera and under-display fingerprint sensor. The bezels all round appear ever thinner except that on first looks, the bottom bezel could be a little more than expected. Physical buttons can be seen on the sides of the phone; one is the power button and the other is claimed to be an alert slider.

The only other information available on the OnePlus 7 and that too based on an announcement by the company itself, suggests that the processor to be fitted on the new flagship will the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855SoC. There have been independent reports of the OS being Android Pie, version 9 with the Oxygen OS riding on it as the UI.

There are also rumours indicating that the company may choose to release a 5G phone along with the main 4G OnePlus 7. It is rumoured that OnePlus has tied up with the UK carrier EE for the launch of a 5G phone and though the basic platform might be retained as the OnePlus 7, you may see a higher RAM and higher storage as well. It may not be surprising if the battery too is a bit larger on the 5G variant keeping in view the requirements of a device handling high data speeds.
