Even though OnePlus is doing its best to keep OnePlus 7 away from the media’s eyes, pictures of the smartphone still get leaked every couple of weeks. However, this week’s leak is more important than all the others because it reveals that the highly anticipated smartphone will feature a pop-out selfie shooter.
The leak was posted by “OneLeaks” on Twitter and the leakster claims that the folks at Pricebaba were the first ones to get their hands on the picture. Nonetheless, let’s check out the features that we can spot in the leaked picture.
Pop-Out Selfie Shooter
Apple changed the idea of what the “perfect” smartphone looks like back in 2017 when it launched iPhone X with a display top-notch. All other tech companies, excluding Samsung, have started using the full-screen design implemented by Apple. Well, it looks like OnePlus doesn’t want to follow the trend started by Apple and it decided to use a pop-out selfie shooter instead of using a display top-notch. In addition. The pop-out selfie shooter makes it possible for OnePlus 7 to offer a higher screen to body ratio than normal.
We should note that OnePlus is not the first tech company to introduce the innovative pop-out selfie camera. Oppo and Vivo which are also Chinese based tech companies have already launched smartphones with this type of selfie camera.
OnePlus 7 Won’t Feature Wireless Charging
Since we are talking about OnePlus 7, we should note the fact that the company’s CEO has confirmed in a recent interview that the smartphone will not offer wireless charging support. The CEO said that the smartphone’s cable charging speed is just too fast and that it isn’t worth raising the smartphone’s price in order to introduce wireless charging support. Nonetheless, the newly leaked picture of OnePlus 7 looks amazing and this is all that matters right now.
