Update: Leaked photos and renders suggest the OnePlus 7 will have a pop-up selfie camera and almost no bezel. But it might not support wireless charging.
The OnePlus 6T released last fall held up the company’s tradition of flagship specs and features at a midrange price, but we’re already starting to hear about the company’s next phone, the OnePlus 7.
Mind you, it’s not much yet – OnePlus is keeping mum on how its next phone will improve on the OnePlus 6T, which included the first in-screen fingerprint sensor on a phone sold in the US.
But the Chinese company has suggested that the OnePlus 7 will accomplish a different milestone: it may be one of the first phones to support 5G.
Below you’ll find everything that we’ve heard so far, and we’ll be sure to add any leaks and rumors on the OnePlus 7 to this page when we hear them. In the meantime, you’ll also find what we hope the phone will offer, along with some speculation about it.
The OnePlus 7 will probably land sometime in the middle of 2019. The OnePlus 6 was announced in May 2018, so May 2019 is a possibility for the OnePlus 7, though we got the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 in June of their respective years, so June 2019 is also a possible launch period.
There’s no word on what the OnePlus 7 will cost, but the OnePlus 6T started at $549 / £499 / AU$599 and prices have been gradually creeping up since the range began, so we’d expect the OnePlus 7 will cost at least that much if not more.
If you want 5G though you might have to pay a lot more. OnePlus has confirmed that it’s working on a 5G phone and while it’s not known whether the OnePlus 7 will support 5G, the company’s CEO has said that its 5G handset will cost between $200 and $300 more than its next 4G device.
We know the company is working on both a 5G and a 4G phone, but it’s not clear whether the 5G phone is a variant or a completely different model. Either way though you should be able to get a OnePlus 4G phone if you’re not up for paying that much.
