OnePlus 7 has entered into the leak mills. OnePlus 7 has reportedly shown its face in a recent leak originating from China Via slashleaks.com. The Device is seen in some sort of protective case to hide the identity and full design of the phone and is being compared to another phone, which looks like the OnePlus 6T to us. As you can see in the above-leaked image, the protective casing has hidden a significant portion of the phone, but you can still make out a few key details, including some sort of sliding mechanism to place the front camera as there is no display notch or punch hole present.
If we go with the render leaked image, we can easily see the phone’s earpiece grille, alert slider, and the power button. The grille holes are very similar to the OnePlus 6T, giving credence to the leak and the fact that the phone could very well be the OnePlus 7. The cutouts present in the protective casing for a front camera and sensors seem to indicate that the phone may possess a slider mechanism, which once activated would fill up the currently empty space behind those cutouts. In the past, Oppo, as well as Xiaomi, have experimented with slider mechanisms in their smartphones. Oppo’s Find X features a motorized slider, whereas Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 had a mechanical slider. Both phones barely had any bezels on the top and were using the sliders to place the front shooters. It seems OnePlus is eliminating the “side punch hole camera path” and taking a slide mechanism in consideration.
OnePlus is supposed to be launching two new smartphones in the first half of this year, including a 5G smartphone. According to the recent comments by the company CEO Pete Lau, the 5G phone will be launched by the end of May 2019 and will be a different device than OnePlus 7. It will also sport a separate branding than the existing phones.
