The phenomenal success of OnePlus 6T and the predecessor OnePlus smartphones has led to the market keenly await the next iterations from them. There have been rumours doing the rounds now on what the OnePlus 7 may be like.

The company has set a trend where a standard variant of the phone would first be released, followed some time later by a ‘T’ variant. In that sense, the OnePlus 7 may be out in spring and the OnePlus 7T by fall. This year, the company plans to add a 5G phone to the offering though what the phone will be called is not clear yet. Some rumours say it may be called the OnePlus 7 Pro.

There are basically two sources on which these reports/rumours are based: One is the popular Twitter handle OnLeaks and the other the Chinese social media site Weibo. Both are known to carry such predictions and rumours of phones being released much ahead of the others.

The OnePlus 7, according to them, is likely to have a 6.5-inch display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and the Android Pie OS. The battery is likely to be 4000mAh and the internal storage may be offered in two options. If some of the renders of the proposed phones are to be trusted, the OnePlus 7 may not have any notch or hole on the display screen which means there will be a popup camera module. The rumours say the phone will be fitted with a triple camera setup with a 48MP+20MP+5MP sensors forming the rear shooting combination. The front selfie camera is being predicted to be 16MP.

Now these sources have even suggested that OnePlus 7 will be priced at $569. None of these have been confirmed by OnePlus and therefore will have to be treated as such. The same goes for the 5G phone as well.

Now only one aspect of the OnePlus 7 stands confirmed and that came directly from the CEO of the company at the MWC 2019. OnePlus believes its Dash Charging technology is faster and superior to any wireless charging and the company does not propose to add this feature to the OnePlus 7.
