    Of course it has one, if it didn't the screen wouldn't turn off while holding it to your ear when on a call. It's probably under the display.

    that doesn't make any sense. Proximity sensor can't be under the display.

    The screen definitely does turn off when you keep the phone next to your ear on call, but I'm not able to trigger the proximity sensor with an app that checks the sensors? It worked on my 3T.

    Really...you wanna bet?

    It's under the display in the Samsung galaxy s10.

    They have a fingerprint sensor under the display, but you somehow seem to think they can't manage to put a tiny proximity sensor under there.

    Well if it have one then it's working poorly, very bad performance of proximity sensor

    You can test this by making a call and not putting the phone to your ear. On the s10 the sensor becomes visible as a little blinking light above the battery percentage in the top right corner. The oneplus 7 Pro may have something similar.

    yes oneplus 7 has proximity sensor and at a very weird location.
    you won't believe me so try it for yourself and see it.

    dial *#808# and enter engineer mode.

    then enter proximity sensor test

    then take infrared proximity sensor test
    and ull be surprised to see the location.

    Thinking logically, there's only 3 places it can be.

    1, Under the display (s10 style)
    2, On the top of the phone (view 20 style)
    3, Behind or next to the earpiece/top speaker

    If it's none of these I'd be interested to know where exactly oneplus has put it.

    Its slightly below and to the left of the camera notch. Light sensor is below and to the right of the notch, as far as my crude finger experimenting can find out. :p

    Edit: Both under the display of course.

    yeah it is under the display.

    thats why i made up the surprise. no offense.
