The new OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone comes with a 90 Hz QHD+ AMOLED display, new triple camera system, 12GB RAM and and more.
Announced today at a NY event, the all-new OnePlus 7 Pro will be available this week everywhere OnePlus phones are sold, including on T-Mobile in the US starting at $699. OnePlus will also sell all three spec levels of the Pro unlocked (compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon) through its website.
OnePlus also said that the OnePlus 7 will be available later this year in select markets, bu not the US.
Both new models bring the latest 855 processor from Qualcomm, multiple camera arrays, large screens, large batteries, stereo speakers, and OnePlus’ proprietary fast-charging systems.
The OnePlus 7 retains the exact same design as last year’s OnePlus 6T, complete with a 1080p display. The 7 Pro debuts is the company's first truly full-screen OnePlus phone without a notch or other screen cutout for a front camera, which actually pop-ups.
OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 6.5 to 6.7-inch OLED, depending on if you account for the curved corners or not, with just the trimmest of bezels surrounding it. The device is hiding the front-facing camera in a motorized module that pops up out of the top of the phone. The company claims that the motor can withstand over 300,000 openings and closings.
The OnePlus 7 Pro’s screen refreshes at a rate of 90 times per second, 50 percent faster than most other smartphones. Additionally, the display supports HDR10 and HDR10+ but not Dolby Vision. Underneath the screen is an optical fingerprint scanner that OnePlus claims is twice as large as the scanner that was in the 6T.
The device utilizes DDR4X memory, UFS 3.0 storage, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. Cooling all of these high-end components is a new liquid cooling system, while an upgraded vibration motor provides improved haptics.
Other upgrades include a new stereo speaker system, Dolby ATMOS sound, a first for OnePlus phones, and a large 4,000mAh battery. The 7 Pro also supports the Warp Charge charging system and the company says it is up to 38% faster than Fast Charge and can reach “almost half” of its capacity in just 20 minutes of charging. However, the 7 Pro is not compatible with the USB-C Power Delivery standard, nor does it offer any wireless charging.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has three different cameras on the back, with a 48-megapixel main sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. By default, the main camera captures 12-megapixel images utilizing the data from four pixels to create one large pixel. The 3X telephoto camera provides a little more reach than the typical 2X telephoto on an iPhone or Galaxy, and it is used in conjunction with the main camera for portrait-style shots. OnePlus says the new system uses three different focusing systems (phase-detect AF, contrast AF, and laser focusing) to improve focusing performance in both good and poor lighting situations.
The smartphone can record 4K footage at up to 60 frames per second, as well as slow-motion 1080p footage at up to 240 frames per second, keeping it in line with the Galaxy S10 and iPhone XS.
Starting from May 17th, the OnePlus is selling the 7 Pro in three configurations: a 6GB RAM / 128GB storage model for $669, an 8GB / 256GB version for $699, and a top-of-the-line 12GB / 256GB model for $749. It will initially be available in either a glossy black finish or a matte blue color, while a gold-toned model will be available at a later date.
Alongside their new OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones, OnePlus also teased their first 5G-capable smartphone: the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The handset will be one of the first 5G smartphones to hit the UK market later this year.
The 5G variant of the phone adds Qualcomm's discrete Snapdragon X50 5G modem to the mix, giving the phone 5G capabilities on top of its baseline 3G/4G capabilities.

OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2
OnePlus today also announced the new Bullets Wireless 2 earphones.
Going from $69 to $99, the Bullets Wireless 2 offer a much rounder shape to the earbuds.
On the inside of each earbud, there are two Knowles balanced armature drivers for mids and highs, together with one dynamic driver to cover the lower frequencies. OnePlus is including support for its Warp Charge fast-charging standard, which will get 10 hours of music playback into the Bullets Wireless 2 with 10 minutes of charging. On a full battery, the company promises 14 hours of total playing time.
Bluetooth 5 and AptX HD are both supported by these new Bullets. There’s also a quick-pairing function between these buds and OnePlus phones.
