OnePlus wants to make sure you know that it has a new phone launching on May 14th called the OnePlus 7 Pro. In fact, the company’s marketing department is taking things to new lengths as a full-page New York Times ad, camera samples, and a record-breaking display test have all surfaced over the past 24 hours.
For starters, DisplayMate has confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro has earned its highest rating ever on a smartphone, taking home the honor of an A+ status. The entire breakdown of the screen won’t be made available until May 14th, but OnePlus has managed to achieve quite a feet nonetheless. It’s likely due to the 90Hz refresh rate on the screen which has been rumored. We won’t know for sure for a couple of weeks, but it’s our best guess as to why it received such a high rating.
Next up, Wired has published a brief gallery of some photos taken with the triple-camera array on the OnePlus 7 Pro. As you can see, the photos come out pretty nice with good color balance and sharpness. The publication’s images confirm the inclusion of a third lens with 3x optical zoom. This will let you zoom into scenes even further than before without losing detail. Of course, Huawei’s P30 Pro has 5x optical zoom which is far more impressive, but it’s nice to see OnePlus try to compete with the big dogs nonetheless.
Finally, OnePlus has also published a full-page advertisement featuring an outlined version of the OnePlus 7 Pro in The New York Times. The ad confirms the phone won’t come with any bezels surrounding its screen, no notch, no bloatware, and no app lag. We can also see certain components that will live inside the phone such as the motorized selfie camera, battery, cameras, USB-C port, and speaker chamber.
With all of this teasing, let’s hope the OnePlus 7 Pro lives up to the hype. We’ll do our best to have boots on the ground in NYC as the company takes the wraps off its latest flagship. Stay tuned, folks.
