The OnePlus 7 may feature a pop up selfie camera

Posted March 05, 2019

Going by the launch cycle of the company, we can expect the OnePlus 7 to launch around the beginning of June. Now, the mystery is solved, as the video shows us that the front snapper will pop-up similar to the Vivo Nex (and V15 Pro). This will give the handset more screen estate.

The big surprise here is that for a company that has largely stayed away from gimmicky or extraneous features on previous devices, the OnePlus 7's pop-up camera seems like an incredibly weird choice.

We're looking at a rather generous screen-to-body ratio, as there is no notch, no punch hole, and nearly imperceptible bezels.

For the most part, OnePlus 7's looks similar to the OnePlus 6T with a minimalistic design.

The next significantly visible change on the OnePlus 7 is the camera setup.

Elsewhere, the biggest point of comment is the pop-up front camera.

He said it takes too long to charge a device using a wireless pad, whereas with the OnePlus quick charge plug, you can get your battery 50 per cent charged in just 20 minutes. So suggests a source familiar with the subject who wished to remain anonymous due to the volatile nature of the subject. Moreover, at the backside, you now have three cameras. It would appear that there's an LED flash below the camera array, and a OnePlus logo below the LED flash.

In addition, at the back the camera setup has gone from dual sensors to triple sensors in the same pill-shaped design like it has been there in the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T. There's no word yet if it will still be optical or OnePlus will switch to ultrasonic. And I'm not just saying that - I mean it!

As for the ports and buttons, things remain largely the same. The phone will not be a 5G device since we are still in the early stages of 5G deployment. Also on the bottom is a set of five holes indicating a lovely loudspeaker for music blasting aplenty. The top edge is home to the elevating camera mechanism cutout and a mic. If any flash is to be had, it'll be one of those display-all-white features we've seen on so many LED-less phones of the past.
