OnePlus 7 Pro
The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company's new flagship, and it's a looker. These days a top-end phone is expected to have an all-screen, all-glass, curvy design. The OnePlus delivers that, along with the top-end specs everyone wants. Instead of a notched or hole-punch screen, OnePlus has solved the selfie camera problem with a motorized pop-up design. So what is it like in person? We checked it out.
The new OnePlus 7 Pro puts top-end specs and features, such as three rear cameras and a notchless 6.67-inch quad-HD AMOLED display with HDR 10+ and 90 Hz refresh rate, into a new design with a pop-up selfie camera and a glass back, that's just 8.8mm thick. OnePlus announced the phone today at events around the world. The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6-12 GB of RAM. Its three rear cameras include a 48-megapixel main camera with OIS and f/1.6 aperture. It also has a 16-megapixel wide camera and 8-megapixel telephoto camera. It supports slow motion (1080p at 240 fps), portrait mode, automatic scene detection, and RAW mode. The pop-up front camera clocks in at 16 megapixels and f/2.0. It retracts automatically if the phone is dropped. The fingerprint reader is embedded in the display. Its 4,000 mAh battery can be topped up with "Warp Charge 30" fast charging (5V/6A). Instead of a 3.5mm audio jack, it support audio over USB-C. The phone also has Cat. 18 LTE, NFC, and stereo speakers. The full retail pricing is $669 for the variant with 6 GB of RAM, up to $749 for the 12 GB version. T-Mobile will launch the phone on Friday, May 17th. It will be available in dark gray, blue, and almond/gold. The company also announced a OnePlus 7 model (non-Pro) that is not coming to the US.
T-Mobile will start selling the forthcoming OnePlus 7 Pro nationwide on May 17th. The phone is set to be announced on Tuesday, May 14th in NYC. T-Mobile will hold its own launch event for the phone at its Times Square store on the same day. On the 15th, T-Mobile will hold additional launch events at its "signature" stores in Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, and Santa Monica. OnePlus made a name for itself offering "affordable flagship" phones and selling them unlocked. The company scored its first US carrier deal last year when T-Mobile picked up the OnePlus 6T.
