OnePlus 7 Pro Leaks With Dual-Edge Display, Triple Camera And Special 5G Variant

OnePlus is expected to refresh its flagship device this year and rumours around the upcoming OnePlus 7 are coming in rather frequently. We have multiple leaked cases confirming that the handset will have a full-screen display, triple camera at the back and a pop-up selfie camera. A new leak now suggests that there might be more than one variant of the handset.

According to popular tipster, Ishan Agarwal OnePlus could be working on three variants of the OnePlus 7. These will include the OnePlus 7 itself, the OnePlus 7 Pro, and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. Recently the OnePlus 7 Pro was also spotted on Bluetooth SIG certification website. According to Agarwal, the model numbers for the three variants are GM1901, GM1903, and GM1905 for the OnePlus 7, GM1911, GM1913, GM1915, and GM1917 for the OnePlus 7 Pro, and GM1920 for the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.

A post on Weibo shows a glimpse of the alleged device sporting a dual-edged display, similar to the bunch of Samsung Galaxy flagship devices. The display is notch and hole(s) free just like the leaked OnePlus 7 renders, which means this one will also come with a pop-up selfie camera. There is no photo of the back, so we can’t confirm what kind of primary camera setup it will have. There is however an ‘About Phone’ screen of the alleged OnePlus 7 Pro revealing that the handset will feature a 6.67-inch Super Optic display, a Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and a triple rear camera setup – with a 48-megapixel sensor, a 16-megapixel sensor, and an 8-megapixel sensor. We can’t vouch for the leaked information, but if we are to believe them, then it will be the first time OnePlus will launch multiple variants of its flagship phone.

OnePlus 7 Pro Price in India Tipped to Start at Rs 49,999

The OnePlus 7 Pro price in India is expected to start at Rs 49,999, according to a tip on Twitter. According to the report, the OnePlus 7 launch will see unveil three OnePlus 7 Pro variants in India — a 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant priced at Rs 49,999, an 8GB/256GB variant priced at Rs 52,999, and the range-topping 12GB/256GB variant going all the way up to Rs 57,999. The OnePlus 7 Pro pre-orders are already open, which can be booked for Rs 1,000 on Amazon India.

This marks a number of firsts for OnePlus, marking a deviation from the initial philosophy and outlook that the company started with. The OnePlus 7 launch event will be the first time that the company is expected to unveil two devices simultaneously with the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro — a similar strategy as Apple. More importantly, however, at price points of Rs 50,000, it will be debatable to see if the company would still manage to command the tagline of being a ‘Flagship Killer’. OnePlus’ initial philosophy of providing a smartphone with flagship specifications and mid-range pricing is what gained the company a commendable following and critical appreciation.

Now, at the premium pricing, the general consensus across the internet is that the OnePlus 7 Pro camera in particular would really need to provide stellar performance if it is to steal the eyeballs off the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the upcoming Google Pixel. While the latter devices are typically priced even higher, the general brand perception may be a thorn in OnePlus’ path towards success with the device.

However, in defense of the company, the OnePlus 7 Pro now appears to be a very premium product — the leaked and concept renders of the device suggest premium build quality, a razor-sharp display with high refresh rate to improve viewing quality, and everything you would expect of a flagship. It remains to be seen if OnePlus 7 sales live up to the hype generated around the product, and whether it manages to live up to the lofty expectations of the big league of smartphones.
