OnePlus has been heavily teasing the launch of its next smartphones since the past few weeks. Whether it's a collaboration for cover photoshoots with top magazines or full-page newspaper ads in the US, the smartphone manufacturer has been aggressively marketing the OnePlus 7 Pro. Here's all we know so far about both the devices.
OnePlus 7 Pro India launch
OnePlus had announced that the OnePlus 7 series will be unveiled on 14 May in three different countries simultaneously. The events are said to be held in London, New York, and Bangalore. The main launch will be taking place in New York at 11.00 am EDT and in London and Bangalore, the event will start at 4.00 pm GMT and 8.15 pm IST.
OnePlus 7 Pro pricing
According to leakster Ishan Agrawal, the three models of the OnePlus 7 Pro could be priced up to Rs 57,999. Agrawal reports that the lowest variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro, which will apparently be 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage model, will be priced at Rs 49,999. The middle variant, which will have 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB internal storage will be priced at Rs 52,999. On the other hand, the highest 12 GB RAM variant, which will have 256 GB internal storage, will be priced at Rs 57,999.
In India, Amazon has always been an exclusive partner of OnePlus for selling its devices and the tradition is looking to be followed for this year as well. Amazon India's page already has the 'Notify Me' page live on its website which signifies that pre-orders and sales of the device will be conducted from there.
OnePlus 7 Pro camera
The phone will have a triple-camera setup which will include an additional ultra-wide sensor, along with a primary 48 MP sensor and telephoto sensor on the rear. On the front, the smartphone could be sporting a pop-up camera, based on a leaked concept render. It was also reported that the OnePlus 7 Pro's camera will have a shutter lag of 0.3 seconds. The main camera, presumably a Sony IMX 586 sensor, will use pixel binning to create 12 MP shots.
OnePlus 7 Pro display
As per a leak by Onleaks, the OnePlus 7 Pro has a 6.64-inch with a QHD+ resolution with a 90 Hz refresh rate. OnePlus had announced that the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro has been given an “A+ Top Tier Display Rating” from independent display research lab DisplayMate. The rating suggests the yet-to-be-released OnePlus 7 Pro has one of the best smartphone displays in the market.
Apart from the DisplayMate rating, the OnePlus 7 Pro also received the ‘Safety for Eyes’ certification from VDE Testing and Certification Institute. This certification suggests that the smartphone display is able to “better filter out harmful blue lights.”

The base RAM variants for the OnePlus 7 will be from 6 GB which should go up to 8 GB. There will be an optical in-display fingerprint sensor in the phone as well. At the heart of the phone will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The OnePlus 7 Pro actually has a smaller 4,000 mAh battery compared to the OnePlus 7. It also supports 30 W Warp charge technology. The 7 Pro looks to have a starting variant of 10 GB RAM which is likely to go up to 12 GB. There is also an in-display optical fingerprint scanner in the device. The handset like the standard 7 model will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 platform.
Additionally, two colour variants have leaked until now. The first was the 'Nebula Blue' variant coming from a leaked render from a German website. The second leak came from tipster Roland Quandt suggesting an 'Almond' colour variant.
The OnePlus 7 Pro also officially confirmed water resistance on the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro without any IP rating. The message read: "Waterproof ratings for phones cost you money. We bought something less expensive instead."
