OnePlus has launched three new flagship smartphones in the first half of 2019. While the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are made available in India, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is only limited to the selected European markets. All these three smartphones are already part of Google’s Android Enterprise devices list. Now, these OnePlus smartphones are added to the Google ARCore supported devices lite. With the Google ARCore support, the new OnePlus 7 smartphones can take advantage of the AR features by downloading the Google ARCore app from Play Store.
Even the previous OnePlus flagship smartphones are also listed on the Google ARCore website. Unlike the Project Tango smartphone launched a few years back, Google’s augmented reality platform is now widely available for all the flagship devices from major brands. Since all these OnePlus 7 smartphones come powered by the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, we don’t think there will be any issue while handling the ARCore apps.
While the OnePlus 7 comes in 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB storage variants, the OnePlus 7 Pro also comes in 12GB + 256GB storage variant. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is the same OnePlus 7 Pro but additionally comes with Snapdragon X50 5G modem for accessing 5G services. All the OnePlus 7 smartphones run on OxygenOS 9 based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Since the devices are part of the Android Q developer preview program, the users can also try out the latest Android Q Beta.
With the flagship hardware and fine-tuned Oxygen OS, the OnePlus 7 smartphones offer lag-free experience and top-notch performance. With the 90Hz display, using the OnePlus 7 Pro makes it smoother than ever. We hope other manufacturers also help in making the 90Hz refresh rate as a mainstream feature, at least for the flagship smartphones. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more updates about the OnePlus 7 smartphones.
