The OnePlus 6 is one more effective phone in the array, managing to match up to handsets virtually two times its cost. It’s an amazing phone after that, so can you criticize us for already being excited concerning what’s coming next?

In fact, what’s coming following could be the OnePlus 6T – a phone which if it launches at all will probably land prior to completion of 2018 but will likely only be a tiny upgrade on the OnePlus 6.

What we’re actually thrilled concerning though is the OnePlus 7 – real following generation in the array as well as a phone which could be a major upgrade.

We don’t understand anything about the OnePlus 7 (or perhaps the OnePlus 6T) yet, but we’ll make certain to include any leaks as well as rumors as when we hear them. In the meantime, here’s what we hope the phone will supply, along with some supposition regarding it.

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The next numbered phone from OnePlus
  • When is it out? Likely mid-2019
  • What will it cost? Probably at least $529 / £469 (around AU$840)

OnePlus 7 launch day and price

The OnePlus 7 will probably land at some point in the center of 2019. The OnePlus 6 was revealed in May 2018, so May 2019 is an opportunity for the OnePlus 7, though we obtained the OnePlus 5 as well as OnePlus 3 in June of their particular years, so June 2019 is additionally a feasible launch period.

Before that though we’ll most likely obtain the OnePlus 6T, which based upon previous ‘T’ versions may land in or around November 2018.

There’s no word on just what the OnePlus 7 will set you back, yet the OnePlus 6 started at $529/ £469 (around AU$ 840) and also rates have been gradually approaching since the range began, so we’d anticipate the OnePlus 7 will set you back at the very least that much if not more.

OnePlus 7 news and rumors

There aren’t any kind of reports concerning the OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 6T yet, however the phone might well have a glass back, because OnePlus only recently switched to glass with the OnePlus 6.

It’s most likely to also have an alert slider, since previous mobile phones in the variety do, and it’s certain to have the very best Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset available at the time together with masses of RAM (the OnePlus 6 featured an option of 6GB or 8GB).

Don’t anticipate a microSD card slot though based upon previous kind and the display resolution is quite an enigma – OnePlus has regularly stuck with Full HD resolutions, however that’s really feeling ever extra dated so eventually we’d expect a button to QHD or higher.

What we want to see

We don’t know anything much regarding the OnePlus 7 yet however based upon the OnePlus 6 and what’s going on in the remainder of the phone globe we know what we desire from it.

1. A QHD screen

windows mobile phone

OnePlus always packs its phones filled with innovative specifications and also attributes, yet it always sticks with a Complete HD screen, which isn’t a match for the majority of the top-end flagships.

That might well be maintaining costs down, yet it’s time the range made the dive to QHD, particularly given that its screens are obtaining larger, so we intend to see that occur for the OnePlus 7.

2. A microSD card slot

You can obtain a decent quantity of storage space in the OnePlus 6 yet you don’t get a microSD card slot, so if the quantity it ships with isn’t enough you’ll need to begin erasing things.

That’s not suitable as well as while the 256GB leading size need to be plenty for the majority of people it won’t be for everyone – specifically those that plan to load their phone packed with songs, movies and also games. So including a slot into the OnePlus 7 would be much appreciated.

3. Proper water resistance

The OnePlus 6 has some water resistance, yet it doesn’t have an IP ranking. So it must have the ability to survive a dash if you dry it off swiftly yet can’t really be put in the water.

Not that we’d advise doing that generally with the majority of phones, yet knowing that it would certainly make it through if you did – or if you utilize it in heavy rain – could provide some actual assurance that you don’t obtain with the OnePlus 6, so we’d like to see this enhanced for the OnePlus 7.

4. Stereo speakers

The OnePlus 6 has just a solitary audio speaker, and also its placement at the base of the phone makes it easy to stifle, so we’d like to see it preferably moved as well as most definitely doubled up for the OnePlus 7, with a second audio speaker enabling loud stereo sound.

Sure, you’ll most likely mostly use headphones anyhow, however having a high quality audio speaker configuration can make all the distinction when you just want to enjoy a YouTube video or pay attention to a podcast without plugging in.

5. No notch

The OnePlus 6 is one of many recent phones to obtain a notch, and also while it could be concealed if you prefer, what we’d truly like for the OnePlus 7 is no notch at all.

But we don’t desire a go back to large bezels either. We’re beginning to see phones like the Vivo Nex as well as Oppo Find X which have practically no bezel at all and also we’d like the OnePlus 7 to join them. This isn’t inconceivable, especially as Oppo is greatly related to OnePlus.

6. Wireless charging

Despite having a glass back, the OnePlus 6 doesn’t assistance cordless charging, which feels like a significant omission for a flagship phone.

This is possibly a cost-cutting action and, in a sense, appears sensible, given that we doubt cordless charging is a greatly used attribute, however it would certainly behave to have.

7. An in-screen scanner

Along with an all-screen layout we’d like the OnePlus 7 to have an in-screen fingerprint scanner. By doing this it could still have a scanner without having to awkwardly put it on the back.

And in-screen scanners are currently a sophisticated uniqueness which might aid the OnePlus 7 stick out from the group – or at the very least compare to it, relying on exactly how many phones have them by the time the OnePlus 7 launches.

  • Next year we’ll likewise obtain the Samsung Galaxy S10
