    After numerous rumours, OnePlus confirmed that it will release a Pro variant of the OnePlus 7.

    Described as a “super flagship” by the exclusive article published by The Verge, this variant of the phone will have a “breakthrough” display.

    Pete Lau, CEO of the company, mentioned a couple of things about the new screen, namely, that it will “redefine fast and smooth” and also that it will “set a new benchmark for mobile displays”.

    It’s also mentioned by Lau that “The first time I saw it myself I was stunned” and that it will be a “super-smooth and very crisp” panel.

    This last paragraph tells us exactly nothing about it, other than the usual marketing shenanigans, however, what’s more interesting is that OnePlus “is spending three times as much on its display this year than on previous models”, a clear investment on this department.

    The CEO didn’t mention exactly what we can expect from the display, however, accordingly to the leaks posted on Twitter by Ishan Agarwal, the phone will have a “Quad HD+ Super AMOLED “90hz” Display”.

    We still don’t know how much the phone will cost, but it’s mentioned that the “model can be expected to cost somewhere close to the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S10, Huawei’s P30 Pro, and Apple’s iPhone XS”. Before you start to panic, this price is probably for the OP7 Pro 5G.

    The article also mentions that “The new OnePlus 7 will be more expensive than the OnePlus 6T”, so it seems we’ll have price bump even for the regular model.

    As a final note, please have mind that “the new, extra-smooth display” display will not be available on the regular OnePlus 7.

    The biggest question right now is this: we know we’ll have a OnePlus 7 and a OnePlus 7 Pro with 5G. However, will we also have a OnePlus 7 Pro without 5G capabilities? I’m writing this because of this sentence: “The big strategic change is that the OnePlus 7 will be arriving with a plus-one: a super flagship, which will be called the OnePlus 7 Pro and will feature 5G and a significant display upgrade”.

    Also: on the correction note published on the article, it is mentioned “both” devices, and that can mean we’ll get two models: the regular OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro with the fancy display and the 5G modem.

    Many thanks :)

    I truly hope we can have a OnePlus 7, a OnePlus 7 Pro and a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.

    I personally believe we will, but since I got that doubt reading the article, I wanted to write it here too.

    About the display, I'm pretty curious to see it. :cool:

    @dsmonteiro can you consult a little bit about this? Two or three different dishes? :rolleyes:

    At least tomorrow we'll know when the device is going to be announced, that's something :p

    Only on the Pro Pro model :p

    this belongs in the op7 speculation thread but
    its all good and nice but the deciding factor is and will be the COST which only mentions of it are that its going to be more expensive
    how expensive is more expensive ?
    how much premium is the pro model going to be over the regular model ?
    any other info is not as irrelevant if they comeout with at s10 price
    699$? 750$? at least starting price would be nice

    if the one plus 7 pro is gonna cost more than $750 then people are gonna consider buying Samsung Galaxy s10 e or s10 as both these devices provide a nice overall package and like it or not Samsung is always will be a tier 1 brand and has more brand recognition around the world which one plus is still.many people doesn't consider oneplus to be a premium brand when compared to apple or samsung.the only reason people would buy op7 pro over s10 will be for oxygen os and faster and longer software support.

    Actually, I'm thinking of going with the Missus to a restaurant that has 4 appetizers, 8 main courses, 1 pre-dessert (whatever that might be) and 2 desserts. So 15 dishes in total.

    Yikes. I bet all 15 dishes are only mediocre too, since they can't pin down which one(s) they want to focus on.

    Heyyyyyy hey hey, no need to confirm just yet OnePlus is going to release 8 main devices this year. We will cross that bridge when it's T-O'clock :D

    1 pre-dessert is the Bullets Wireless 2.0, obviously.

    2 Desserts are the new cases, no doubt.

    15 new SKUs this year? Got it!

    About the 4 appetizers, well, we all know that's all about the normal and express shipping options. What's that? Those are only 2? Well, multiple them by two (DHL and UPS), so learn your facts, son. :D

    Sorry, what was the question again? Oh, that's right, I was the one who asked you something. o_O

    Another excuse for the price hike...

    Who is going to buy a 800€£$+ One Plus Phone? Just not the right target group...

    Probably me. Probably a lot of other OnePlus users. Probably not you.
