OnePlus 7 was launched alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro in India last month. While the OnePlus 7 Pro has been on sale for quite a while, the OnePlus 7 will go on sale starting tomorrow. The phone will be available in the country via Amazon, OnePlus.in, and OnePlus exclusive offline stores. The most obvious difference between the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro is that the OnePlus 7 Pro sports a more appealing fullscreen design, whereas OnePlus 7 sports a waterdrop-style notch. The OnePlus 7 also has a dual camera setup at the back, whereas the Pro variant brings a triple rear camera setup on board.
The OnePlus 7 sale will begin on Amazon.in and Oneplus.in at 12pm (noon) IST on June 4. Launch offers include benefits worth Rs. 9,300 from Reliance Jio, up to Rs. 2,000 instant discount for SBI debit card and credit card users, no-cost EMI options up to three months, up to 70 percent guaranteed exchange price via Servify, and exchange offers. The phone will also be sold at OnePlus exclusive offline retail stores, and availability will expand to all OnePlus partner retailers on June 14, including MyJio stores, Croma, and Reliance Digital Outlets.
OnePlus had confirmed that the OnePlus 7 price in India starts at Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB + 128GB storage variant, going up to Rs. 37,999 for the 8GB + 256GB storage variant. The 6GB RAM variant will only be available in a Mirror Grey colour variant, while the 8GB RAM variant will be offered in both Mirror Grey and Red colour variants. The Red colour variant has only been launched in India and China.
The dual-SIM (Nano) OnePlus 7 runs OxygenOS based on Android 9.0 Pie. It sports a 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Optic AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, a pixel density of 402ppi, and support for sRGB and DCI-P3 colour gamuts. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, coupled with the Adreno 640 GPU and up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM.
The OnePlus 7 features a dual rear camera setup, consisting of a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor as its primary camera, with an f/1.7 aperture, 1.6-micron pixels (4-in-1), optical image stabilisation (OIS), electronic image stabilisation (EIS), and phase detection autofocus (PDAF). The secondary camera features a 5-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 aperture and 1.12-micron pixels. The rear camera setup is accompanied by a dual-LED flash module.
The front camera of the OnePlus 7 bears the same 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor as the OnePlus 7 Pro, though it is present within the waterdrop-shaped notch instead of in a pop-up camera mechanism. The selfie camera sensor has 1-micron pixels, an f/2.0 aperture, and EIS.
Connectivity options on the OnePlus 7 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C (v3.1 Gen 1) port that also doubles as the headphone port. It runs on a 3,700mAh battery, the same capacity as the OnePlus 6T, with the same 20W (5V/ 4A) fast charging.
