The standout announcement of the event today was the OnePlus 7
Pro, which the company is positioning as the flagship offering of
2019. However, there was also a regular OnePlus 7 unveiled, which
isn’t coming to the U.S, that is essentially an updated OnePlus
6T. With a lower price and reduced specs, the OnePlus 7 is a more
affordable option over the higher priced Pro model.
The OnePlus 7 is the device for those who skipped the OnePlus 6T
and want an incremental update without the higher price tag. The
updated device is an incremental upgrade over its predecessor with
much of the same exterior with refreshed internals, but what
exactly are the differences between the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a larger screen at 6.67-inches over the
6.41-inches of the OnePlus 7. You’ll get 1440 x 3120 resolution
with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 516 pixels-per-inch offering 88.1%
screen-to-body ratio compared to the 1080 x 2340 resolution with
19.5:9 aspect ratio with 402 pixels-per-inch and 85.5%
screen-to-body ratio on the OnePlus 7.
Both devices feature a Snapdragon 855 processor and Adreno 640
GPU. The Pro model is available with 6GB RAM with 128GB of storage,
or 256GB of storage with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM whereas the
regular model comes with either 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage or
256GB with 8GB.
The OnePlus 7 Pro features a brand new triple camera array that
has helped the device earn one of the top ranks of the
camera rankings with DxOMark. The triple camera has a
48-megapixel f/1.6 OIS lens with a 16-megapixel f/2.2 ultrawide
lens paired with an 8-megapixel f2/.4 OIS 3x telephoto zoom lens.
This is compared to the 48-megapixel primary sensor on the OnePlus
7 that is paired with a 5-megapixel depth sensor on the rear. Both
devices feature a 16-megapixel f/2.0 front-facing camera with the
only difference being the Pro model houses the module in a
motorized pop-up mechanism.
You’ll get a bigger battery in the OnePlus 7 Pro at 4000mAh
battery with 30W fast-charging compared to the smaller 3700mAh
battery with 20W fast-charging in the regular model. Both devices
also get an optical fingerprint sensor under the display.
The OnePlus 7 starts at £499 and will be available in June
while the OnePlus 7 Pro starts at $669 or £649 available
exclusively through T-Mobile in the U.S.
