OnePlus has announced its latest premium flagship devices, the OnePlus 7 series, redefining fast and smooth with the latest technology which pushes the boundaries of the smartphone experience. We couldn’t make the launch event this time in London, but, we have most of the details here now to share.
Go Beyond Speed With The OnePlus 7 Series
- OnePlus 7 Pro – the best screen you’ve ever seen
- OnePlus 7 – powerful and sleek
- OnePlus 7 Pro 5G – taking speed to the next level
Featuring the most advanced smartphone display in the industry, the OnePlus 7 Pro delivers an unmatched user experience in display, camera and performance.

“We constantly challenge ourselves to give people the best experience possible,” said Pete Lau, founder and CEO of OnePlus. “A great user experience means freedom, and should enhance your life instead of distracting you from it.

Redefining Smooth on a Bigger and More Immersive Display
The OnePlus 7 Pro features an industry-leading super smooth 90Hz display, meaning the screen refreshes at ninety times a second for a seamless experience. Whether you’re gaming or watching a film, the 19.5:9 aspect ratio screen delivers incredible quality at QHD+ on a fluid AMOLED display.
The screen shows stunning detail at 516 pixels per inch, with 4.49 million pixels working to bring crisp and accurate colours. With HDR10 and HDR10+, content from a range of streaming sources can be enjoyed in the best possible quality with subtle gradients and rich details.
For an immersive feeling the 6.67-inch curved glass stretches across the entire front of the device, uninterrupted, flowing over the edges. OnePlus has reduced the bezels on all sides of the handset. The OnePlus 7 Pro has earned DisplayMate’s highest A+ rating, making it one of the very best smartphone displays on the market.
Triple Cameras: A Lens for every moment
The OnePlus 7 Pro features OnePlus’ advanced and capable camera setup, offering breathtaking results for every scenario from a wide field of view to a stunning portrait. Powered by the new OnePlus UltraShot engine, the camera setup is designed to give natural colour reproduction, with sharp images in a range of conditions including low light, at just the touch of the shutter button.
The rear cameras on the OnePlus 7 Pro feature a state-of-the-art 48 megapixel sensor with OIS, 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.
A new three-pronged autofocus system intelligently uses PDAF, CAF and Laser Focusing methods to produce beautiful images in daylight and in lowlight. The new camera also has improved Nightscape mode, and overall improved low-light performance.
The front-facing camera is covered in sapphire glass, and the mechanism has been tested over 300,000 times. Meaning it can be opened and closed 150 times a day, every day, for over five years.
Fast and Smooth
The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by the latest mobile platform, Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 855, with up to 12 GB of RAM, creating an experience which sets a new benchmark for incredible performance. The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with UFS 3.0 storage, for sheer speed when it comes to document loading, image saving from the camera, app launch times and more.
RAM Boost learns from usage habits and intelligently allocates available RAM to memory-intensive applications – it greatly shortens loading processes so large apps like games start much quicker. RAM Boost will allow more applications to stay open in the background without any compromises on overall performance.
Warp Charge 30 means the massive 4,000mAh battery goes from 0-50% in just 20 minutes. Even when you’re charging and in the middle of an intense game, the OnePlus 7 Pro keeps up with the pace, with minimal excess heat and the same superfast charging time.
Screen Unlock is taken up a level, with a new camera sensor and new algorithms, bringing down the unlock time to just 0.21 seconds.
Sound is driven by Dolby Atmos technology and a stereo dual-speaker system, fine-tuning both the left and right sound channels to allow intricate details to be heard. Equipped with a powerful Haptic Vibration motor, the OnePlus 7 Pro provides multiple levels of vibration feedback and virtually zero delay for a more realistic experience.
A 10 layer liquid cooling layer allows the OnePlus 7 Pro to remain cool even during the most intense gaming sessions. And how better to share your victories and defeats, than with the new Screen Recorder feature – there is no limit to recordings and you are able to pause and resume at any moment, and even choose the audio source and use the microphone to add live commentary over the top.
Gaming Mode can be taken to the next level with additional pro settings – Fnatic Mode adds new features to gives a competitive advantage, with advanced DND, background restrictions, and network enhancements as the CPU and GPU are optimised to make a gaming beast.
The OnePlus 7 is another incredible premium experience in a sleek package. With the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 855 mobile platform, UFS 3.0, Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, RAM boost, new Screen Unlock technology, UltraShot engine, and more, the OnePlus 7 is another big step-up in OnePlus history.
Sharper and Clearer Pictures
The OnePlus 7 sports a powerful dual-lens setup that allows you to take exceptional pictures. The main sensor on the OnePlus 7 features Sony’s IMX586, a 48-megapixel, 1⁄2 inch super-sized sensor with an aperture of f/1.7, and OIS and EIS. The second camera is 5-megapixel, and the whole camera array is again driven by the powerful new UltraShot engine.
OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
