Last year, OnePlus had announced the OnePlus 6 flagship phone in May. Hence, it is speculated that the OnePlus 7 may go official around the same time this year. Reputed tipster has already shared 360-degree renders of the phone recently to reveal its design from all angles. A leaked hands-on image of the alleged OnePlus 7 has surfaced today to reveal its design in real.
Just as the new renders of the OnePlus 7 had revealed, its leaked hands-on image also shows that it will be arriving with a display without a notch. The upper edge of the phone hides a pop-up selfie camera. This design will allow the phone to offer a screen space of 90 to 95 percent. The recognition setup page seen in the image confirms that the phone will carry support face unlock apart from in-screen fingerprint scanner. The leak has no information on the specs of the phone.
Recent reports have revealed that the OnePlus 7 measures 162.6 x 76 x 8.8mm. The smartphone is expected to arrive with a triple camera setup on its rear. Also, the phone is expected to continue to feature the in-display fingerprint sensor that was first seen on the OnePlus 6T. The Snapdragon 855 SoC may power the phone with up to 8 GB of RAM. It may come with up to 256 GB of native storage. Some rumors have claimed that it could be equipped with a 4,150mAh battery. OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau had confirmed at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 event that OnePlus 7 won’t carry support for wireless charging. However, the handset may come with better rapid charging technology.
The Snapdragon 855 SoC that will power the OnePlus 7 may not feature X50 LTE 5G modem. Hence, the OnePlus 7 may not debut as the company’s first 5G phone. It is speculated that the Chinese firm is working on a different 5G enabled phone that may debut some time after the OnePlus 7 smartphone.
There is no confirmation on the authenticity of the leaked image of the smartphone. Hence, it is advisable to wait for further reports to confirm on its design and specs.
