The seventh iteration of OnePlus is set to be launched at MWC, 2019 on February 24 in Barcelona. As the launch date is nearing, photos of the OnePlus 7 are being leaked online. Two pictures of the smartphone leaked on Twitter claims that the phone in the images is the OnePlus 7. The leaked photo of the upcoming smartphone is not what we saw earlier.
The image shows a notch-less full screen display. There is no punch-hole camera on the display like Samsung’s or a water-drop notch like the one found on OnePlus 6T. The full-display of the phone suggests that the phone will either get a pop-up selfie camera like the Vivo V15 Pro or a motorized front camera like Oppo Find X, which was featured in an earlier leaked image of the phone.
A Twitter user named Steven_Sbw uploaded two pictures of the alleged smartphone. The image does look like a OnePlus device, but it is not confirmed that the device shown in the picture is the original OnePlus 7. The phone in the photos have slim bezel at the bottom and a slightly thick bezel on top. We can also see that there is a power key and alert slider on one side of the device. The user didn’t share any specification of the device, however according to the company, the OnePlus 7 will have Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is the flagship processor of 2019 by Qualcomm.
Few other things known about the smartphone at this point is that it will launch at MWC 2019 and will have OnePlus’s OxygenOS. The company will also be releasing a 5G variant of the smartphone in UK where it has partnered with telecom operator EE. Like the top variant of Samsung Galaxy S10+ that is coming with 12GB RAM, 1TB storage and a price tag of more than Rs 80,000, we might get to see the OnePlus 7 5G variant with more storage, more RAM and a price tag more than the regular OnePlus 7.

Last year launched OnePlus 6T was the upgraded version of OnePlus 6. The 6T is still considered one of the best phones to come out in 2018. It has a 6.41-inch optic AMOLED display with water drop notch on top. The smartphone comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and in-display fingerprint scanner.
It has Snapdragon 845 SoC and comes in three variants. These include 6GB RAM + 128GB storage (the cheapest of the lot) and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage the highest. There was no headphone jack in the phone for which it was criticized by the users. Now, in the upcoming model of OnePlus we will get to see how it has improved from a phone which was already good.
