Ever since the launch of the OnePlus One phone smartphone half-decade ago, the company has prominently been competing against the Android flagship models of that particular year. To achieve that OnePlus has been offering top of the line specifications with its OnePlus devices and has been pretty successful in doing so – thanks to its aggressive pricing. Though the OnePlus devices have been successful with its premium specifications, there were still compromises in terms of several aspects when compared to its competition.
OnePlus has decided to change that this year and has successfully launched its flagship OnePlus 7 Pro, which the company calls its ultra-premium smartphone. The high-end flagship OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone has been unveiled today in India at Bengaluru alongside its regular OnePlus 7 smartphone.
