Image of OnePlus 7 prototype with pop-up camera may have leaked on Twitter

The only thing we know about the OnePlus 7 is that it will arrive with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.

A twitter user has uploaded what appears to be an image of two nearly bezel-less phones. Could this be the new OnePlus 7?

Only the top half of the two phones is visible and the bezels are almost invisible. The iPhone XS bezels look humongous in comparison. One phone lacks any form of notch while another phone has a waterdrop notch, as seen on the OnePlus 6T. We’re guessing that the notch-less phone incorporates some sort of manual or mechanical slider mechanism for the front selfie camera and sensors.

 

Given that the OnePlus 6T had a very fast, if unsafe face unlock option and a slow-to-the-point-of-frustrating in-display fingerprint scanner, we’re wondering how OnePlus will deal with biometrics on a bezel-less, notch-less phone.

The only thing we know about the upcoming OnePlus 7 for sure is that it will arrive with Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 chip. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed as much at the Snapdragon Tech Summit in December 2018. He also hinted at the arrival of a 5G phone later this year, though it was never confirmed whether this would be the OnePlus 7 or an entirely new device.
