    No, OnePlus 7 series have NO proximity sensor, only a so called "virtual" one.

    As far as i experienced, the sensor seems to be non functional if i block the front camera completely. So i hope they are using the front camera. Though i learnt that they are using a software based proximity sensor.

    I know I'm late but it actually doesn't have a proximity sensor. It has a virtual contraption that tries to figure out proximity to things. It messed up my navigation when I just got my phone jumped in my car and tried to navigate somewhere. Navigation was so slow and laggy. It's okay now thanks to the AI element that's being used. But no it doesn't have a sensor.

    Yeah I heard about the virtual sensor a couple of weeks ago, I assumed at the time oneplus would have used the same method as Samsung (under display sensor in the s10) but instead they decided to use some half baked system which has caused problems for many users.
