New Delhi : While OnePlus is yet to announce the launch date of their upcoming smartphone OnePlus 7, the company's CEO Pete Lau has revealed a few things about the smartphone and another higher-tier device: the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Talking to The Verge, Lau confirmed that OnePlus 7 will be announced alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro and it will feature 5G connectivity. While he did not give a mention about an expected price of the device, we have learned that it will be competing with flagship devices by Samsung, Huawei and Apple.
However, he did mention that the device will be priced more than OnePlus 6T.
Lau also talked about the display of OnePlus 7 Pro, claiming it will set the benchmark for mobile displays. Lau tells The Verge “The first time I saw it myself, I was stunned,” and offered that it will be “super-smooth and very crisp,”
In a teaser released last week, Lau Tweeted about the phone being “Fast and Smoooth,” directly referring to a possible 90Hz refresh rate display. Only the Pro model would have such a display.
With no competition to other mobile makers, it is expected that the older devices may see a sharp price cut.
Rumoured reports also suggest that the OnePlus 7 Pro would feature a pop-up selfie camera, 3X zoom, and an ultra-wide shooter.
