How much power in OnePlus 7? at first sight…

There’s no denying that the OnePlus 7 Pro was in the spotlight at the company’s event on Tuesday, but we think the OnePlus 7 is also a smartphone to get excited about as it launched with an attractive price tag. The Gadgets 360 team was also present at the launch event held in Bangalore, where the company took the most time to reveal the OnePlus 7 Pro and the new Bullets Wireless 2 earbuds before finally unveiling the OnePlus 7.

The OnePlus 7 isn’t much more exciting than the OnePlus 7 Pro, but one thing that stands out to everyone is its starting price. At just Rs 32,999, the OnePlus 7 uses the same processor as the OnePlus 7 Pro i.e. Snapdragon 855 chipset. That would be reason enough for many to buy it. We’ve spent some time with the Mirror Gray and Red color variants during the launch event, now let us fill you in on that.

OnePlus looks like OnePlus 6T. The given grille for the earpiece in OnePlus 7 is wide apart from this it is a bit hard to tell the difference between the two phones. OnePlus is a very light phone, at first it seemed to us that it is light because in the past we had used the slightly heavier OnePlus 7 Pro in comparison.


However, if you look at its specs, you will find that the OnePlus 7 is a slightly lighter smartphone than the OnePlus 6T. Both color variants are bright due to which fingerprints fall off easily. If you use the phone without a case or cover, fingerprints will easily fall on the phone.

There are two color variants of the OnePlus 7, but we think its red variant is more appealing. Some of the biggest features of the OnePlus 7 Pro have also been provided by the company on its affordable OnePlus 7, such as UFS 3.0 flash storage, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support, and updated in-display fingerprint sensor.

We won’t be able to test your speakers on location during the launch event, so we’ll be able to give you detailed information about them only after we get the review unit. There will be a slight change to the secondary camera compared to the OnePlus 6T. Remember that in the OnePlus 6T the company had given a 20-megapixel depth sensor but in the OnePlus 7 you will get a 5-megapixel depth sensor. It will be interesting to see how this affects the image when shot in portrait mode.


The OnePlus 7 screen is similar to the OnePlus 6T. Its brightness and color reproduction is also good. Like OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7 also runs on OxygenOS 9.5. In this, you’ll get a built-in screen recorder and a Zen mode, though there’s no Fnatic Gamemind mode. Like OnePlus 7 Pro, wireless charging support is also not provided on OnePlus 7.

OnePlus 7 smartphone will come with 20W fast charging support while the company has 30W Warp Charge fast charging technology support on OnePlus 7 Pro. If you are using OnePlus 6T then upgrading to OnePlus 7 will not be cost effective for you, since most of your updates are incremental.

We hope to have our review unit soon. After the test, we will provide you with detailed information about its performance, battery life, display, build quality and other things in the OnePlus 7 review.
