There are still about 10 days to go before the official presentation of OnePlus 7 which will take place on May 14 in 4 events which will be held in London , New York , Bangalore and Beijing , despite this the renderings are becoming more and more insistent and show the most likely device that will be presented.
As you can see in the images you can appreciate the full screen design. In recent days also OnePlus has confirmed there will be the presence of the usual alert slider that distinguishes the smartphone of the Chinese company. As for the front camera it should be a pop-up camera with a motorized retractable mechanism. Absent the jack-audio definitely in the Pro version.
Probably in addition to the two colors Nebula Blue and Mirror Gray , the “almond” version should also be present at the launch, but at the moment we do not know if it will be available in all markets.
Surely OnePlus 7 Pro will be the most expensive smartphone ever produced by the company. In fact, the hypothetical price so far speaks of around € 750 for the 8/256 GB model. Price that will increase for the 5G variant.
OnePlus 7 will be waterproof but without IP certification
OnePlus said it did not want to make a real evaluation on its smartphones, as it would increase the final price of the device. Nevertheless it demonstrates the impermeability with a very original video.
Over the years OnePlus has never wanted to have its devices evaluated with IP certification as a matter of costs: in fact, this recognition would increase the price of the products by about $ 30 . Smartphones are however resistant to water and dust according to an internal standard.
In fact the Chinese company has made a short video in which the smartphone falls into a bucket full of water, illustrating its impermeability, and finally remembers the date of the official presentation, on May 14th. The co-founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei , later admitted that IP classifications are very useful, but he believes that this video is actually, even better than a real evaluation:
We know that an IP rating would be the easiest way to demonstrate the capabilities of our phone, but certification doesn’t help us communicate our focus on the real experience, which is why we created this direct and recognizable video to show you that OnePlus is really durable water.
A OnePlus spokesman then stated:
We always aim to create the best device, giving priority to a series of balanced features. We test the water resistance. This certainly is not an invitation to drop the phone in a bucket full of water, but wants to communicate that IP classifications are decisive up to a certain point.
