From the last couple of years, OnePlus has really managed to carve its niche in the smartphone industry. It is popular for maintaining a good balance between hardware upgrades and efficient software support. That too, the Chinese smartphone company always manages to keep up with the upgraded technologies in the Android world. Now we know OnePlus drops two new phones each year. After the massive success of its current flagship OnePlus 6T, the company may soon bring out its 2019 premium machine the OnePlus 7.
In fact, some hyped OnePlus 7 first look live images are already making rounds of the web. When we say hyped, of course, the information is not official. Some images of what we assume to be that of a OnePlus 7 prototype is leaked on Twitter.

The leaker is apparently unknown. Also, there is no information on the features or any other aspects. So, we can't really count this as credible but it's definitely informative. The OnePlus 7 first look kind of indicates a pop-up selfie camera. You can see there is no notch on the display and the upper end is slightly thicker. So, it may house the pop-up selfie camera. That camera concept is not new anymore and has been deployed by other Chinese counterparts of OnePlus. Same we can also say about the display cutout. OnePlus needs some unique quotient to make the OnePlus 7 overpower the efficiency of its precursors.
Interestingly, in the image above, you can see the home screen icon layouts are leaving out a lot of margins. I tried comparing it with my OnePlus 6T(if you have a 6T, check it out and compare). In the 6T, the icon placing is very definitive and this leaked image it leaves a lot of space making it look weird. If the device is indeed OnePlus 7, it's apparently a prototype. So, we have to wait for more official detailing on the structure and layout.
OnePlus also is brewing up a 5G smartphone. As a matter of fact, the company will unveil a 5G prototype at the upcoming MWC2019. So, maybe OnePlus 7 is still under development and may not show up till mid-2019. We think the 5G device is taking the front seat for the 2019 release. As of now, there is no official info about the existence of any device called OnePlus 7. No leaks has been accredited by OnePlus. All we can do is speculate and enjoy the leaks with a pinch of salt.
What's your take on this supposed OnePlus 7 first look..?! Do you think it will be unique and sport better aesthetics than 6T..? We think this time the 5G phone may get more attention than a device which will repeat the design already on the market. However, it's too early to say as this image is not credible. OnePlus may take us by surprise with some unique gameplan for its 2019 flagship. Let's wait and watch.
