At the beginning of this month, we spotted some CAD renders of the OnePlus 7 and a 360-degree render. Then, the device was supposedly seen “in the wild.” According to @OnLeaks, we saw the pop-up camera, so the rumors about the missing notch were actually true. The render also showed a third camera lens on the back. Today, we got more renders of the OnePlus flagship.
Considering OnePlus 7 features were already leaked online, YouTuber Waqar Khan made the best of the information and created colorful renders of the smartphone. He published his concept, showing off the future OnePlus flagship in four colors, where two of them are gradients.
Check out the entire three-minute video on YouTube, where you can see the colorful renders up close.
OnePlus 7 Leaks, Specifications and Release Date
Although the phone might be released in May or even June 2019, according to GSM Arena, the flagship was also listed on Giztop, revealing not only the image of the phone but also the specs.
We saw the notch-less display, and all the features that were there are in line with everything that has been leaked before. The retailer listed these following specifications:
- 5-inch AMOLED display
- Snapdragon 855 processor
- Up to 12 GB RAM, up to 256 GB of internal storage
- Triple camera setup – 48 MP, 20 MP, and 16 MP
- Selfie camera for photos and video calls – a pop-up camera with 16 MP
- 4,000 mAh battery with 44W Warp Charging
To keep the prices down, OnePlus will not add wireless charging. This option is too slow compared to the wired charging in current OnePlus phones, explained CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau in an interview during MWC 2019:
“OnePlus charging is one of the best. Wireless charging is far inferior.”
So, OnePlus 7 will not come with wireless charging, even though the Chinese phonemaker wants to add premium features to their flagship devices.
