OnePlus will be launching three flagships smartphones in the first half of this year. While the OnePlus 7 will be the successor to last-gen OnePlus 6T, the company is also launching the premium OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. OnePlus is rumored to unveil these three new smartphones on May 14th in New York. According to the latest tweet from Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus, the company will be officially revealing the launch date of the OnePlus 7 lineup on the coming Tuesday, i.e, April 23rd.
In India, OnePlus might skip launching the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G as the 5G rollout is yet to begin. Both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will be made available in all the markets. As seen with the previous OnePlus launches, we expect the India launch to on the very next day of the global launch. While the devices will be sold online via Amazon.in and OnePlus.in, the company might also partner with more retail chains to expand the offline reach.
The new OnePlus 7 will look similar to the OnePlus 6T with minor changes to the rear camera setup. However, it will come powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and sports improved cameras on the rear and front. On the other hand, the OnePlus 7 Pro will be a completely new device with several first of its kind features on a OnePlus smartphone. On the front, the device is rumored to come with dual curved AMOLED display with Quad HD+ resolution.
Stay tuned next Tuesday for our launch event announcement 😁
