It isn’t clear if the certified device will turn out to be the successor of OnePlus 6 or the OnePlus 5G smartphone but, we can tell you the device will offer Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. Moreover, it also confirms that the release of the handset is around the corner. Speculations are that the OnePlus could introduce the smartphones in Q2 2019.

Going by the previous leaks and rumours, the OnePlus 7 is expected to boast of a refreshed design. Unlike last year’s OnePlus 6 duo, the next-generation model will reportedly flaunt a notch-less display. The selfie camera will retract from the top edge, just like the OPPO F11 Pro. Moreover, OnePlus 7 is tipped to be the brand’s first smartphone to feature triple-rear camera setup.

On the display front, the phone is likely to come with AMOLED display with a fingerprint sensor embedded for optical biometrics. It’s not confirmed yet, but OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 5G will use Qualcomm’s latest 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset, with the latter getting the X50 modem to support 5G networks. The SoC is expected to be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage.
