OnePlus is expected to launch their next-gen flagship smartphone this year in the form of the OnePlus 7. Now thanks to a series of renders shared on Pricebaba with OnLeaks, we have an idea of what to expect and it seems that OnePlus will be approaching the design differently with a popup camera.
It’s actually interesting that OnePlus has approached the OnePlus 7 with this design. This is because back in 2018, the company launched the OnePlus 6 with a notch which the company’s CEO seemed pretty enthusiastic about. This render, if accurate, suggests that the company will be heading in a different direction.
It’s also not that surprising as OnePlus phones tend to borrow certain design and technology from Oppo who also has a phone with a popup camera (both OnePlus and Oppo share the same parent company). The idea of a popup camera isn’t new either as an earlier leaked suggested that the company could be either go with a popup camera or a slideout design.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but OnePlus has yet to officially confirm when the OnePlus 7 will be launched. The company is also expected to launch a 5G smartphone later this year, and it also seems like the company will be passing on foldable devices for now.
