Its Official After months’ worth of rumors and leaks, One Plus has unveiled the One Plus 7 pro. The Pro model is the one that will really turn heads, and its gorgeous new design will impress even before we get to what’s changed on the inside. It looks to offer great value, starting at just £649/$669.
As rumored there are new gradient color options for the Pro, with Nebula Blue and Mirror Gray at launch, and Almond coming in June. The screen is standout, awarded and A rating by Display Mate and the company’s first Quad-H D+ display with 4.5 m pixels (3120 x 1440, 516). It’s a 6.67 in Fluid AMBLED panel with H D R 10+ certification and curved glass.
This year, things are a little different. The One Plus 7 Pro is obviously the most powerful and striking phone One Plus has put out to date, but it costs nearly $100 more than last year’s One Plus 6 T. From specs, impressions, cases, and more, here’s everything you could possibly need to know about the One Plus 7 Pro.
One Plus 7 Pro 5 G is the first 5 G phone to go on sale in the UK – sort of. Though Vodafone got there first with MI Mix 3 5 G, its network isn’t going live until 3 July. Meanwhile, the One Plus 7 Pro 5 G is available to pre-order now from EE and shipping on 30 May – the same day that the mobile operator switches on its next-gen 5 G network in various UK cities.
One of three new One Plus phones to be announced earlier this month, the One Plus 7 is a decent upgrade for users of 2018 handsets, but it’s the One Plus 7 Pro that’s going to get you all hot under the collar. These are two very different smartphones, and only the Pro has the long-rumored 6.67 in 90 Hz Fluid AMBLED display, and the pop-up selfie- and triple-lens rear cameras.
The One Plus 7 Pro is One Plus’s first big flagship for 2019, and wow is it something special. The pop-up selfie camera allows for a display without any bezels or notches, there are three cameras on the back and blazing fast performance with great software. All of that, and it costs hundreds of dollars less than some competing flagships.
As great as the One Plus 7 Pro has proven to be, it’s far from existing in a bubble. There are plenty of other phones out there eager to challenge it, so we’ve done the hard work of putting it head-to-head with some of its stiffest competition.
Around the back, the One Plus 7 Pro is the company’s first device to sport a triple-camera setup, comprising 48 MP, 8 MP telephoto and 16 MP wide-angle lenses, the latter offering a 117-degree field of view.
The device comes powered by Qualm’s Snapdragon 855 Sock, which comes teamed with up to 12 GB RAM, 256 GB IFS 3.0 storage and a 4,000 mAh battery complete with Warp Charge 30, which means the 7 Pro can juice from empty to 50 percent in 20 minutes.
The Galaxy S 10 and Pixel 3 are the obvious comparisons for the One Plus 7 Pro, especially considering its higher price. However, the phone that might give it the biggest run for its money is the $400 Pixel 3 a and its truly phenomenal camera.
As you can see from the picture above, the display on the One Plus 7 Pro is quite impressive. It measures in at 6.67-inches and uses a vibrant AMBLED display. One Plus phones typically use a 1080 Full H D resolution, but on the 7 Pro, One Plus stepped things up to a crispy 3120 x 1440.
Surrounding that display is hardly anything. Save for a teeny tiny chin at the bottom, there are virtually no bezels at all on this phone. There isn’t even a notch!
This display is flawless, with the 16 Mp, f/2.0 Sony I M X 471 selfie camera (the same as in One Plus 6 T and 7) housed in a new pop-up mechanism slightly off-center at the top of the device, which has caused the dual-Nano SIM tray to move to the bottom.
The selfie camera is called up and ready to go in 0.58 seconds, and One Plus’ testing suggests it will withstand at least 300,000 uses. There’s an extra seal here to keep out dust and water, and it will automatically retract if you drop the phone.
Something you can’t see in this picture, but perhaps even more impressive, is the 90 Hz refresh rate. Most phone screens have a refresh rate of 60 Hz, meaning that everything on the One Plus 7 Pro moves faster and more fluid than just about anything else.
As of 4 June, both the regular and Pro One Plus 7 models are now on sale. The One Plus pro is now available. It’s can be picked up in three configurations, 6 GB/128 GB, 8 GB/256 GB and 12 GB/256 GB, priced at £649, £699 and £799, respectively.
One Plus has announced that the ‘limited edition’ Almond version of the One Plus 7 Pro will arrive in Blight on 25 June. It’ll be available with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, and will fetch £699 when it goes on sale at John Lewis and One plus.com
