OnePlus, today, has unveiled its new OnePlus 7 series lineup which includes two new phones. Unlike previous announcements where there was only one new device, OnePlus has now offered two phones at two different price-points. The higher-end OnePlus 7 Pro is the brand’s most expensive and most feature-filled device yet. The main things that have changed over from last generation’s OnePlus 6 / 6T include a curved display, pop-up camera, triple cameras on the back and also new color options.
Being offered to compete with high-end, more expensive flagships, OnePlus 7 Pro is a great deal when it comes to the specs it offers. Whats most intriguing about the device is its new display technology which the company is calling Fluid AMOLED. This is the first time an AMOLED panel is being offered with a 90Hz refresh rate which makes for a smoother, snappier UI experience on OnePlus 7 Pro. Further, underneath the hood, there is Snapdragon’s latest chipset and high-end storage & RAM capacities
