OnePlus 7: Next-gen flagship killer does away with notch screen
OnePlus 7 leaked image reveals an interesting screen design choice. Clue – it does not have a notch.
OnePlus will be one of the top smartphone companies present at the coming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company is expected to unveil a new smartphone, speculated to be a 5G version of OnePlus 6T. There have also been rumours of a brand new OnePlus 7 as well.
Ahead of the official launch, another image of alleged OnePlus 7 has surfaced online. The image reveals OnePlus 7 will finally do away with notch - a cutout on the screen. It may be recalled that OnePlus had faced a big backlash from fans after it decided to implement iPhone X-inspired notch on OnePlus 6.
Later, OnePlus updated the notch on OnePlus 6T to a much smaller waterdrop design, which is seen on several premium and mid-range smartphones.
Looks like OnePlus is now going to remove the notch altogether. According to earlier reports, OnePlus is experimenting with a slider design, similar to Honor Magic. The slider design will allow OnePlus to use more camera modules on the front without compromising on delivering edge-to-edge screen.
OnePlus 7 is most likely to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. It is also expected to feature a 48-megapixel camera, thanks to Sony's IMX 586 sensor. The ultra-fast Warp Charge 30, which debuted with McLaren Edition, will also become a standard charging technology on the next generation flagship killer.
