This year the company is using the tagline “Go Beyond Speed.” The new OnePlus smartphones are expected to feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. A number of sources claim that this year we will see at least two versions- the OnePlus 7 with a similar design as the OnePlus 6T and a OnePlus 7 Pro with a 90Hz QHD+ curved display, a triple camera setup at the back and faster 30W charging. A 5G version of the Pro variant is also expected to make an appearance.
Considering the OnePlus 6T went all the way to Rs 51,000 for the special McLaren edition, we won’t be surprised if the OnePlus 7 Pro launches at a similar price point. As for the regular OnePlus 7, it is possible that the company is going to restrict the price at under Rs 40,000.
