Other than the above-confirmed features, the phone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip (SoC), paired with three different RAM options – 6GB, 8GB, and 10GB. The phone is expected to feature a curved OLED screen on the front of QHD+ resolution. The screen will boast a quick refresh rate of 90Hz, which is uncommon in most flagship smartphones, except some gaming-centric ones.

With no notch on the front, and a claim to have an all-screen profile, the OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to feature a motorised pop-up module on the top, accommodating the front camera for selfies and face unlocking mechanism.

The OnePlus 7, on the other hand, would be a regular upgrade over the ongoing model – the OnePlus 6T. In term of design, the phone is expected to look similar to the ongoing model – water drop notch screen on the front, glass-metal-glass body, etc. However, besides minor cosmetic upgrades, the OnePlus 7 is expected to get new cameras on the front and back, bigger capacity battery, and a new processor (Snapdragon 855).
