The major highlight of the event with the new OnePlus 7 series that will officially be introduced as the successor to the OnePlus 6T.

The OnePlus 7 Pro, which is being actively promoted across social media channels and newspapers, is the company’s first attempt at doing an ultra-premium smartphone with flagship features. Along with that, there will be a OnePlus 7 that will act as a logical successor to the OnePlus 6T with a relatively affordable price.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is supposed to be a proper flagship smartphone, as the leaks and rumours have suggested so far. The OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to be presented as a rival to the Apple iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10. There will be a 12GB RAM variant with 256GB storage.
Similar to previous OnePlus smartphones, the OnePlus 7 Pro will indeed come with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. Oxygen OS based on Android 9 Pie is expected to be on board looking after the daily errands.
Since the OnePlus 7 Pro will be an ultra-premium flagship, OnePlus is rumoured to offer a 90Hz Curved AMOLED display with Quad HD+ resolution. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau already said that the display is three times costlier than other conventional displays on other phones, thereby indirectly hinting towards the 90Hz Refresh Rate. For the first time, OnePlus has introduced a triple rear camera setup. The rear cameras features a 48 megapixel, ½-inch super-sized Sony’s IMX586 sensor, plus a custom-made 7-element plastic lens with an f/1.6 aperture and pixel size up to 1.6µm, an 8 megapixel 78mm telephoto lens at f/2.4 and 1µm pixel size and stabilized by OIS, and a 16 megapixel 117° ultra-wide angle lens at f/2.2.
The OnePlus 7 on the other hand, looks pretty much like OnePlus 6T with a dot notch above the display, dual-rear cameras, and glass finish on the back. The OnePlus 7 has a 6.41-inch display with full HD+ resolution AMOLED display with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. It features the same processor as the Pro variant, with 6GB and 8GB of RAM options with 128GB and 256GB storage, respectively. This one gets a smaller 3,700mAh battery, two rear cameras including 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor and 5-megapixel secondary sensor and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. This one will be offered in Mirror Gray and Red colour options.
The company also announced the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2, an improved version of the last year’s models. This time you get up to 14 hours of battery life and Warp Charge support which can juice up the earphones to offer 10 hours of playback in just 10 minutes. As for design, they look similar to last year’s version with a slight change to the earbuds which are now rounder and claimed to be more comfortable.
