And Carl introduced the OnePlus 7 Pro, the latest and greatest from OnePlus till now. The OnePlus 7 Pro checks a lot of boxes in terms of out of the box features that someone would expect from a flagship phone in 2019. The OnePlus 7 Pro features a 6.67-inch AMODEL Quad HD+ display, with a refresh rate of 90Hz- First time on a phone we saw a Quad HD+ AMOLED display with a higher refresh rate.
Earlier, ASUS and Razer introduced phones with refresh rates of 90Hz and 120Hz, but none of them featured an AMOLED panel. The OnePlus 7 Pro has HDR10+ support and the display has a maximum brightness of up to 800 nits. Also, on the OnePlus 7 Pro, there are no bezels around the display and there is no notch, the display is curved, which makes the phone look elegant while being minimalist.

In terms of optics, the OnePlus 7 Pro features a 48-megapixel primary camera, that is a Sony IMX586 sensor. There is also a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera on the back and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. The triple camera setup on the back is quite flexible and on the front, there is a 16-megapixel pop-up selfie camera. OnePlus has also incorporated drop detection for the pop-up selfie camera so that when a user is taking a selfie or in a video call, and the phone just somehow slips from the hand, during the drop itself, the pop-up selfie camera will be retracted inside, preventing damage to the hardware.
The OnePlus 7 Pro runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with Oxygen OS on top.
