While many shoppers have their eyes on the Galaxy Note 9 or impressive OnePlus 6T, you might want to consider waiting for the OnePlus 7 in 2019. The flagship phone rumored to hit the market early next year.

The OnePlus 6T is getting all of the attention right now with the in-display fingerprint scanner and tiny teardrop notch. The OnePlus 6T is the second phone from the company this year and builds on its earlier success. However, something better is just around the corner.

We’re already starting to see rumors of the OnePlus 7 which should catch your attention. Not only will it delivers a next-gen experience and be a great phone, but it’ll be the true successor to the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 7 Rumors

While the new 6T was only released a short time ago, new OnePlus 7 rumors are starting to pick up steam as the year comes to a close.

In fact, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei dropped a big teaser in October that potentially reveals one of the most exciting aspects of his company’s upcoming 2019 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 next year.

Furthermore, Pei said his company will likely be one of the first, if not the first, to actually deliver a 5G phone to customers in the US and around the globe. Taking our devices beyond the capabilities of 4G LTE. That, however, is just one of many exciting aspects of the OnePlus 7

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.

Reports point to enhanced cameras, three of them, a new processor, more RAM, an improved and even faster in-display fingerprint sensor, better face unlock tech, 5G support, and bigger screens with no bezels. The OnePlus 6T has the smallest notch on any screen yet, so the next step is to remove it completely.

And while you’re probably better off getting the OnePlus 6T and enjoying all it has to offer, early reports suggest the OnePlus 7 could arrive much earlier this year. Instead of the usual May launch timeframe, OnePlus could target a March-April release to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S10.

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 Better Specs & A Better, Bigger Screen

Wait For Better Specs & A Better, Bigger Screen

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. Then, while the new 6T comes with a 6.4-inch screen, we believe the OnePlus 7 in 2019 will come in around 6.5-inches, all while keeping the phone the same size. That's thanks to an even smaller notch, or no notch, and the removal of the "chin" at the bottom of the phone. Truly pushing the screen from edge to edge. Similar to the iPhone X has no bezel at the bottom.

Plus, we could even see a few surprises like 10GB of RAM, although that seems excessive and unnecessary. Either way, this will be OnePlus' biggest, best and fastest phone and likely give the highly exciting Galaxy S10 a run for its money.
