According to an image tweeted by noted teenage tipster Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24), the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro could be launched on May 14, 2019. However, for the first time in the company's history, it looks like there will be more than one variant of the phone.
According to a Counterpoint report, over a third of Samsung Galaxy S users moved to OnePlus 6T and Pixel 3XL during the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2018. However, the real upgrade can be seen in the form of OnePlus 7 Pro. This variant is expected to sport a larger display than the regular OnePlus 7 and will also come with a pop-up camera. While the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones will be coming to all the markets, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G could be limited to the Western markets.
The OnePlus 7 looks like a rather squat device in the images, but it's said to have the same dimensions as the OnePlus 6T, albeit 0.1mm thicker at 157.7 x 74.8 x 8.1mm (or 9.5mm thick if you include the rear camera hump).
OnePlus appears to be playing it safer with the OnePlus 7 and is reserving the crazier design for the OnePlus 7 Pro. There have been rumors about the OnePlus 7 featuring stereo speakers. The pair of Snapdragon 855 and X50 modem is more likely. The secondary camera will be a 20MP sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens, while the third camera (5MP) on the rear could act as a depth sensor.
If the OnePlus 7 seems familiar, you aren't alone. Taking cues from rivals Vivo and OPPO, the handset is believed to come with a pop-up selfie camera which is one of the biggest design trends this year.
