What to expect from the OnePlus 7 launch

As for the devices themselves, this year we're expecting both a regular OnePlus 7 and a "Pro" model. The latter of these two is already confirmed to have a higher refresh rate display - rumoured to be 90Hz - and come as both 4G and 5G models. That means three different OnePlus 7 models, rather than just the usual one. 

Internally, the handsets will have the latest Snapdragon 855 processor, plus lots of RAM and storage. We're also expecting to see fast wired charging and a virtually bezel-free display, with rumours of a pop-up camera making the rounds in recent months. What's more, we'd pretty much guaranteed to have the latest version of Oxygen OS running on Android Pie out of the box. 

There's been no shortage of leaks as well as confirmations from OnePlus itself about what to expect - and we've been tracking all the rumours over the past few months which you can read about here. We've also been keeping track of the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G which you can read up on here.
