This isn’t exactly a leak in the strict sense: the latest renderings are allegedly based on a prototype that OnePlus CEO Pete Lau claims to have carried around on the MWC. And it’s supposed to have a pop-up camera for selfies. Thanks to this, we do without both the annoying notch and punch hole camera that we find in the display of the new Samsung smartphones.
Similar to the Xiaomi MI Mix 3, the next OnePlus smartphone could also feature a slider mechanism for the selfie camera. OPPO’s implementation of the idea met with positive criticism, so OnePlus can almost be sure of a good response. But OnePlus take on this solution looks alike more fragile than that of OPP, at least, if we can go with the most recent renderings from the recognized Leaker Steve@OnLeaksHemmerstoffer.
The leaks also show a triple main camera as an upgrade to the OnePlus 6/T dual camera. The display should be 6.5 inches and make up 95% of the front. The body should measure a total of 162.6*76*8.8 millimeters. The device is 9.7 millimeters thick at the camera. These measurements are disseminated by Hummerstoffer on the rather unknown website Pricebaba. He concludes the report with a video with animated renderings of supposed OnePlus 7.
The OnePlus 7 is expected to be shown in May and then sold in India for the equivalent of around $500. For other markets, the price is likely to be higher.

OnePlus 7 won’t offer QI-charging
Wireless recharge enthusiasts are likely to be disappointed again with the OnePlus 7. Company CEO Pete Lau declared at the MWC that he doubts the added value of Qi (standard) charging. Wireless charging in its current form is still far too inferior to fast charging via cable. But Laus’ criticism can only be half the truth.
