For a few years now, OnePlus has made flagship-competitive smartphones at knockdown prices. This year now, OnePlus has all set to release OnePlus 7 Australia and OnePlus 7T after a month or two. Here we have rounded up the main OnePlus 7 leaks and rumors and what's known, for now.
The 7 is set to be OnePlus' 10th smartphone, despite its name and 6 and 6T both are to be replaced, released in May and October 2018, respectively.
We know quite a few about the OnePlus 7, although it has not yet been revealed, as with nearly every hotly-anticipated smartphone. Here are all the things we know, don't know and any unpredictable rumor about OnePlus 7.
OnePlus has confirmed two savvy bits of information about the OnePlus 7 - a Snapdragon 855 processor which is yet to be released and a 5G connectivity.
Let's take a start from the processor. Qualcomm, which supplies the most high-end Chipsets, is set to provide its newest and largest mobile processor, the Snapdragon 855. This means that the OnePlus 7 quite grunts and can handle almost everything you can throw on it.
According to OnePlus, as OnePlus 7 is going to be backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Chipset, it won't be a very first smartphone to do so.
Jumping now on 5G connectivity, this year's CES also featured a lot of new 5G LTE standards. At the moment, however, we did not see smartphones started to use the new speeds. However, it's not a big miss because the 5G infrastructure isn't currently in place. OnePlus 7, however, supports 5G out of the box, therefore, you can get even faster download and upload speeds as soon as it's available.
The OnePlus 7 has been the subject of a number of rumors. The most interesting thing was that it could have up to 10GB of RAM and a completely bezel-less design with a front slide-out camera.
Where did the rumor about 10GB of RAM come from? After OnePlus' recent collaboration with McLaren, it appears to have emerged in the form of OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. This gorgeous edition had bumped-up specifications as compared to regular OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 7 is definitely not costly compared with a top-of-the-line Samsung or Apple handsets. OnePlus' MO has produced smartphones that compete best on the market but at some price.
With OnePlus 6 and 6T come at AU$743 and AU$780 respectively, it won't be a surprise anymore for all of us to see OnePlus 7 comes in somewhere between AU$770-799.
Indeed, it's an increase from previous models, but the next OnePlus is set to be a bargain as compared to most Android flagships around.
Normally, OnePlus launches two smartphones every year - one new smartphone in May or June, and then an updated one in October or November with the "T" moniker. So probably between May and June 2019, we will see OnePlus 7 announced.
But what about MWC in February? OnePlus does not usually go big at Barcelona's world's largest smartphone show. Rather, its fast McLaren Edition will probably be shown.
Let’s finish this off by saying that OnePlus 7 will set users back more than AU$800 – but probably above AU$750-780 which will still make it a bit of a steal.
