The OnePlus 7 Pro has finally arrived and this time the flagship comes with major improvements over the design, display, and cameras. The device could suffice the need of OnePlus fans who have been eagerly anticipating to see the new powerhouse from the company.
While the OnePlus 7 retains the exact same design of the OnePlus 6T — the tear-drop notch and the Full HD+ display, the Pro variants steps up and goes immersive without any notch obstructing the screen. The OnePlus 7 Pro brings a 6.67-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED screen that is HDR10+ compliant with a 90Hz refresh rate, meaning you get smoother animations and quick touch responses.
Similarly, the good-looking screen is fitted with a glorified in-display fingerprint scanner just underneath which OnePlus claim is twice as large as the scanner and also much faster than on the OnePlus 6T.
The all-screen display is courtesy of a pop-up selfie camera, similar to what you would see on OPPO and Vivo smartphones. The 16MP selfie camera is integrated on a pop-up mechanism that pops up and down depending on your need. The mechanism has been tested up to 300,000 cycles and has a safety feature to prevent it from breaking down when you drop your phone.
With that said, let’s see what the rear camera has to offer. With a number of firsts the Pro model brings, the triple-camera array is the one that catches the eye most. The primary shooter has a 48MP Sony IMX586 1/2″ sensor with f/1.6 aperture, OIS and EIS. It also has OnePlus’ new UltraShot feature which enables the HDR+ mode and, as claimed, allows to capture 4x as much as light. This should come in handy while capturing low-light shots.
The main sensor is accompanied by an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom with an f/2.4 lens which has OIS enabled, while the third one is a 16MP ultra-wide sensor with 117-degree field of view. Remaining features include a dual-LED flash and laser autofocus for the convenience.
Besides those alluring bezel-less display OnePlus has made the Pro model as enticing for the media junkies. Although the 3.5mm headphone is absent from the phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro has a Dolby certified stereo speakers that should sound much better than previous models.
Internally, the OnePlus 7 Pro is as powerful as it can get. The heart of the phone is a Snapdragon 855 chipset with 10-layer vapor chamber cooling. The base variant of the phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage, while the fully maxed out variant comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The OnePlus 7 Pro, in fact, is the first phone to offer a UFS 3.0 storage which should considerably improve the performance.
Powering the whole device is a 4,000mAh battery that supports OnePlus’ Warp Charge 30; basically a 30Watt fast charger. The Warp Charge’s cooling technology in combination with the phone’s extreme vapor cooling allows it to stay cool even while you game and charge the phone at the same time. Unfortunately, the ‘Pro’ model misses out on wireless charging as well.
The OnePlus 7 Pro will be available in three color options: Mirror Gray, Nebula Blue, and Almond. Pricing of the phone starts at $670 for the 6/128GB variant, $700 for the 8/256GB option and finally $50 extra, i.e. $750 for the 12/256GB variant.
