This year, the company has opted to make a Pro version for its popular smartphone. The OnePlus 7 Pro benefits from a slew of  improvements in almost every aspect from its physical design, to performance, camera, battery, and software.

Starting with the display, it boasts a  6.67-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, allowing for smoother and more fluid visuals. It’s also able to render HDR10+ colors, for a more immersive viewing experience. The notch is no longer here in favor of a motorized mechanism that houses the 16MP front camera.

Under the hood is no less than a Snapdragon 855 bolstered with a 10-layer vapor chamber cooling mechanism. It can have up to 12GB of RAM and is the first phone to feature UFS 3.0 storage – up to 256GB. The phone packs a 4,000mAh battery with Warp Charge capability, which is touted to be faster than Dash Charge

For optics, the OnePlus 7 Pro has three rear shooters, the first from the brand. The primary camera uses a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with an aperture of f/1.6, backed by both optical and electronic image stabilization. They’ve added a new feature called UltraShot, which allows the camera to capture up to 4 times as much light. The second is a telephoto lens which gives the phone up to 3x optical zoom, while the third is a 16MP sensor that allows for 117° wide-angle shots.

The device is capable of 4K/60fps videos and up to 480fps slow motion videos. OnePlus has also made improvement for the in-display fingerprint scanner, which now boasts faster unlock times.

If you want a more affordable option, the  non-pro version still packs most of the notable features of the Pro, with some notable differences here and there.

The OnePlus 7 has a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, and drops the motorized mechanism in favor of a waterdrop notch that houses its 16MP front snapper, backed by EIS and capable of recording 1080p videos. It also runs on the Snapdragon 855, along with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.

The device boasts dual rear cameras composed a 48MP main sensor with an aperture of f/1.7, along with a 5MP depth sensor. It retains the improved in-display fingerprint sensor, UltraShot, 4K/60fps and up to 480fps slow motion video recording. It houses a 3,700mAh battery.
