OnePlus 7 Pro: 5 features confirmed for the latest flagship smartphone
OnePlus 7 Pro is coming on May 14. From HDR 10+ display to pop-up selfie camera, here are five features confirmed on OnePlus 7 Pro.
OnePlus is set to launch its new OnePlus 7 series in India on May 14. This year OnePlus will be introducing two flagship phones - OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Ahead of the official launch, OnePlus has already spilled the beans on its new premium smartphone, OnePlus 7 Pro, which is set to compete with the likes of Pixel 3a XL, Samsung Galaxy S10e and iPhone XR.
HDR 10+ display
One of the biggest features of OnePlus 7 Pro is going to be HDR 10+ screen. With DisplayMate A+ rating, OnePlus 7 Pro's HDR 10+ screen will support high resolution streaming from the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. HDR 10+ support brings brightness peak at 4,000 nits, higher than HDR 10's 3,000 nits brightness peak. The new HDR standard also provides frame-by-frame adjustments for better representation of contrast from the HDR source content.
Pop-up Selfie Camera
No notch! OnePlus 7 Pro will bid adieu to cut-out display design in favour of a full-screen panel on the front. For selfies, OnePlus 7 Pro will support a pop-up selfie camera. Previously, pop-up selfie cameras have featured on phones such as Vivo Nex and Oppo Reno. Upcoming Redmi X and Realme X phones are also expected to feature pop-up selfie cameras.
Triple Rear Camera
Along with a new pop-up selfie camera, OnePlus has already confirmed its new premium OnePlus 7 Pro will come with three rear cameras. This will be the first time OnePlus will have more than two camera sensors on its flagship phones. Triple-rear cameras are fast becoming standard feature on modern phones. Some phones such as Samsung Galaxy A9, Nokia 9 and Huawei P30 Pro come with more three camera sensors on the back. Do additional camera sensors improve image quality? Well, the experience has varied from phone to phone.
"OnePlus 7 Pro having UFS 3.0 storage means it'll just be overall faster than comparable smartphones."— Pete Lau (@PeteLau) May 5, 2019

UFS 3.0 storage
Among many firsts, OnePlus 7 Pro will be also the company's first phone to feature UFS 3.0 storage. The new storage standard ensures faster data transfer rate, ultimately improving performance of a phone. The standard was expected to launch with Samsung's new flagship phones including Galaxy Fold, but it looks like OnePlus 7 Pro will be the first to sport the feature.
200% stronger vibration motor
One of the biggest pain points for OnePlus users has been the weaker vibration engine. The company will finally fix the problem with its OnePlus 7 Pro which is said to feature "200% time stronger" vibration engine than the current OnePlus phones. OnePlus will also give users the option to personalise the vibration intensity.
