The OnePlus 7 series was announced just last week in London, New York and Bangalore. Today, the new flagship is being launched locally, in Malaysia. This is apparently the company’s first ever official launch in Malaysia.
The new OnePlus 7 series will consist of the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. Both of these devices come with the top of line octacore (8-core) Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and is paired with enough RAM to put your laptop to shame. By that, we mean up to 12GB of RAM; yes we know, there are laptops with more RAM than that. But does your laptop have a motorised raising camera? No? The OnePlus 7 Pro has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor which raises up when toggled. When not in use, the sensor tucks away seamlessly in the back of the display. No worries about dropping it as the accelerometer is able to detect the drop and will immediately retract the camera protecting it from damage. The camera is also able to raise and retract over 300,000 times – so durability shouldn’t be an issue.
When it comes to the main camera, the OnePlus 7 Pro will be coming with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor in a triple sensor setup. This main sensor has an aperture of f/1.6 and is equipped with both Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The secondary sensor on this setup is an 8-megapixel telephoto lens which gives up to 3x optical zoom. The sensor has an aperture of f/2.4. The final sensor is a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor with a 117° field of view and a an f/2.2 aperture.
The OnePlus 7 Pro will also be equipped with up to 256GB of internal memory. The storage uses the latest UFS 3.0 standard which promises quick speed and swift performance. The 7 Pro also comes with a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display which spans the whole face of the smartphone. The new display technology is claimed to have the most accurate colour reproduction on the market with support for HDR10+ and a QHD+ resolution of 3,120×1440 pixels.
