OnePlus could be about to give its rivals another big headache.
The Chinese firm has been shaking up the Android market for the past few years with flagship specs arriving at a much lower cost than most of the competition.
The OnePlus 6T, the most recent phone from OnePlus, was a prime example with this device arriving with a fast Qualcomm 845 processor, dual-lens rear camera and all-screen design.
Prices for the 6T start from under £500 making this vastly cheaper than top-spec phones from the likes of Samsung, Huawei and Sony.
Now it seems OnePlus is readying itself to release another flagship killer with the launch of the OnePlus 7.
If OnePlus follows its usual release cycle then we can expect to see this device unveiled in May but, like most new flagships, there’s already some leaks appearing online.
And one new set of images may have just revealed a radical update coming to this popular brand.
Slashleaks has just posted some photos of what could be the OnePlus 7 with this device appearing to feature a triple rear camera – one more lens than you’ll find on the 6T.
If true, that trio of cameras could match some of the latest phones from Samsung, Sony and Huawei who have all released devices with similar photography systems in recent months.
Along with more cameras, another huge change could come to the front of the phone with the latest leaks showing a fully edge-to-edge screen that is completely notch-free.
Since the OnePlus 6 was launched last year, the Chinese firm has slowly been reducing the size of the notch on the front panel.
Now it seems this could vanish completely with the selfie snapper now popping up from inside the device when you want to take a photo of your face.
If real, this could be a huge change but not one that’s unexpected.
Oppo, who works closely with OnePlus, has already released phones that feature an all-screen design and pop-up camera.
There’s no other information about what will be under the hood of the OnePlus 7 but expect the latest 855 processor, more internal storage and the possible inclusion of wireless charging.
The news of this leak comes as OnePlus has just revealed a glimpse of its first 5G smartphone which could arrive later this year.
The Chinese technology firm displayed this new prototype device, which is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, at MWC19 in Barcelona.
The devices were shown to the world at Qualcomm’s 5G demo station sealed within a protective case for confidentiality since they haven’t officially made their debut yet.
Speaking about the update, OnePlus boss Pete Lau, said: “5G is a game changer. It can change everything from gaming to communication, to health and beyond.
“More than that, it can perform several, or all, of these at the same time. One great example of how 5G will change the world is gaming. 5G’s dramatic improvement in speed, latency, and network capacity can truly fulfill the promise of cloud gaming.
“Combined with powerful OnePlus devices, people can play advanced games anywhere they are, provided they are on a 5G connection.”
