Across multiple events held today, the OnePlus 7 series has been made official. While the OnePlus 7 is a direct upgrade over its older 6T, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a venture into a new market for the company. And everyone is talking about it.
OnePlus 7 Pro display
A first for the company, the OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED Quad HD+ display at a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. With a 90Hz refresh rate, you will notice a new world of visual fluidity when browsing the web or scrolling through social media.
The 516ppi panel also features HDR10 and HDR10+ for richer video content subsequently earning DisplayMate’s highest A+ rating. This makes it one of the very best smartphone displays on the market.
OnePlus 7 Pro camera
In an ultra-slim profile, the OnePlus 7 Pro features tapered-edges for an improved in hand experience. But its triple camera setup is also a first for the company. The combination of a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with a custom-made 7-element plastic lens, an 8MP telephoto lens and a 16MP 117-degree ultra-wide angle lens makes the camera suited for every moment. According to DxOMark, the camera registers a score of 111, second only to the Huawei P30 Pro.
A powerful algorithm called Ultrashot takes advantage of this new camera hardware. AI algorithms, pixel binning and other photo treatments help preserve fine details for clarity and sharpness even under low-light settings. Smart HDR algorithms help preserve highlights and details in shadows. In low-light, the OnePlus 7 Pro is able to gather four times the amount of light compared to traditional algorithms.
There are focus modes on the primary camera such as PDAF, CAF and Laser Focusing to help you capture the best photos. Whereas on the front, there is a 16MP motorized selfie camera tested 300,000 times for durability.
OnePlus 7 Pro specifications
