The OnePlus 7 Pro is set to be released in New York on Wednesday next week (Australian time) but unfortunately there has been a leak meaning that there is very little left for OnePlus to reveal on stage.
Overnight Roland Quandt has revealed via website Winfuture all the European details for the OnePlus 7 Pro. According to his leak, and there is no reason for us to believe that it isn’t true, the OnePlus 7 Pro will arrive with a 6.67-inch ‘fluid-AMOLED’ 3120 x 1440 90Hz display — yes that is a mouthful but it shows how much money OnePlus have put into and how much faith they have in the display.
Under the display is of course the in-display fingerprint sensor — we can only hope it’s an improvement on the first generation we saw in so many phones and it should be as by all accounts their older sibling OPPO have a much better one in their Reno.
Not surprisingly it will be driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and either 6, 8, or 12GB of RAM! The internal memory will be the super-fast UFS3.0, the first commercially available phone to do so.
The rear camera setup will be a triple camera setup that includes telephoto and wide-angled lenses. The front camera will be that 16MP popup camera that we have seen leaked a few times before.
The 4000mAh battery will be charged using WARP charge 30 — we can only hope it’s as fast as OPPO’s super-dooperVOOC 3.0. All that power will be required to support the 5G radios inside.
Lacking will be wireless charging and an ingress protection certification (these cost money, something OnePlus wasn’t willing to shell out for) but with the fast WARP charging wireless is superfluous. No headphone jack either, but does anyone apart from Duncan care about that anymore?
It will be available to purchase one week from announcement in Mirror Grey, Nebula Blue and Almond. Pricing for it ranges from 699 euros for the lower RAM model and up to 819 euro for the 12GB RAM model.
OnePlus have also released a short video of some Indian gamers’ reactions to using the phone. From their reaction it appears that OnePlus will have a hit on their hands — hopefully the premium pricing does not scare off customers as this could be one of the best phones of the year.
Who will import one? I will once again hassle OnePlus about selling it here but I suspect we’ll get the same answer we always do — we are looking at it and haven’t ruled it out in the future.
