Lau dropped a five-second teaser video of an upcoming ‘new device’ last week. The video does not reveal much information about the device. The video has a mostly dark background with some light shone on the device.
With the teaser video, Lau also posted that the OnePlus device will ‘unleash a new era of Fast and Smooth’. By the looks of it, Lau’s hint leads to previous rumours of the curved screen on the OnePlus 7 Pro, which would have an edge-to-edge display.
From what we know so far, OnePlus is upping the display game on the OnePlus 7 Pro with a QHD+ Super AMOLED display and a 90 Hz refresh rate. Most smartphones have displays with a 60 Hz refresh rate. This would also be the first OnePlus device to feature a QHD+ display.
The Pro variant would feature a triple camera setup comprising of a 48MP primary sensor, a 16MP wide-angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
For the standard OnePlus 7, it would feature a slightly smaller 6.4-inch display with a water-drop notch on top. The device would house a dual camera setup with a primary 48MP sensor at the rear. Like the Pro variant, the standard OnePlus 7 would also run on Snapdragon 855 SoC.While Lau has yet to announce the launch date of the upcoming ‘Flagship Killer’ lineup, recent leaks suggest that the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro would launch on May 14.
