7 Reasons to Wait for the OnePlus 7 & 4 Reasons Not to

Published

The OnePlus 7 is an impressive new smartphone coming soon to take on the Galaxy S10 and iPhone 11, and now we know almost everything before its arrival. Several leaks gave us a good idea of what to expect, and with that in mind, here’s why you should wait for the OnePlus 7 release date and a few reasons not to.

All of these exciting leaks and rumors about the OnePlus 7 should catch your attention, especially when you see that pop-up front-facing camera and truly bezel-free display. Plus, it’ll have an in-display fingerprint scanner like Samsung’s Galaxy S10. Not only will the OnePlus 7 deliver a next-gen experience and be great, but it’s the true successor to the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 7 Rumors (March 2019)

While the 6T was only released a few months back, OnePlus 7 rumors have already started to pick up steam in 2019. Whether that’s talk of a cutout camera like Samsung, a sliding design, no notch or 5G speeds. Rumors are all over the place. And considering it’ll match or beat the Galaxy S10 and be more affordable, those leaks are gaining traction.

In fact, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei dropped a big teaser late last year that potentially reveals one of the most exciting aspects of his company’s upcoming flagship phone. Stating that while they have a lot of technology in the works, 5G is the closest one. Confirming that they’ll release a 5G phone in the first half of 2019.

OnePlus’ next phone is still in the development phase, but we’re already seeing hardware and software rumors surface. Especially considering they share design language with Oppo, who has some stunning new phones in the works. And while we thought it would be a slider phone like the image below, new reports suggest something completely different.

Reports point to enhanced triple cameras, a new processor, 8-10GB of RAM, an improved and even faster in-display fingerprint sensor, 5G support, and a bigger 6.5-inch bezel-free screen. The OnePlus 6T has the smallest notch on any screen yet, so the next step is to remove it completely.

Originally, leaks suggested the OnePlus 7 would have a sliding design to house the front camera. Where the entire frame slid down to reveal the front-facing camera. However, now we’re hearing it’ll have a mechanical pop-up front-facing camera that ejects from the top where some phones have a SIM card tray. You can see what we mean in the video above which leaked in March of 2019.

A few months ago I would have told you to buy the OnePlus 6T. However, with the new Galaxy S10 here and the OnePlus 7 potentially coming in April or May, you’re better off waiting.

We’re getting ahead of ourselves though. For now, our guide below will take you through some reasons to wait for the OnePlus 7 and some reasons you probably shouldn’t wait.

Wait For A Bigger, Better Screen & Powerful Specs

Wait For A Bigger, Better Screen & Powerful Specs

Every year OnePlus makes big improvements to both its hardware and software. In fact, over the last few years, OnePlus has delivered phones that compete with (or beat) the very best Android has to offer. And usually, it beats the competition while costing less money. 

The OnePlus 6 is as good or better than the Galaxy S9+ or Note 9, yet it's only $529. With the OnePlus 6T they shrunk the bezels and added an in-display fingerprint sensor before Samsung or Apple were ever able to, etc. They make big and meaningful changes each year.

We're expecting that trend to continue with a big screen and plenty of horsepower on the OnePlus 7. Basically, wait for the 7 if you can.

You can expect the latest Snapdragon 855 and likely even more RAM. Not to mention a bigger 6.5-inch screen in a package that's the same size as earlier models. That's thanks to no notch for the front camera and a thinner "chin" bezel at the bottom of the screen. Truly pushing the screen from "edge-to-edge". Our image above shows the bezel-free design and a small area that pops up to house the front camera. 

Plus, we could even see a few surprises like 10-12GB of RAM, although that seems excessive and unnecessary. But Samsung did it, so they might too. Plus, a new leak claims the screen is for sure 6.5-inches and gets powered by a massive 4,150 mAh battery.

Either way, this will be OnePlus' biggest, best and fastest phone and likely give the Galaxy S10+ a run for its money.
