According to the previously leaked news, the OnePlus 7 will use the Snapdragon 855 processor, the curved screen, and a three-camera on the back.

However, one of the biggest highlights of the forthcoming OnePlus 7 is going to be its triple-camera on the rear. It will consist of a 48MP lens, a 16MP lens, and an 8MP lens. As for the display, the phone will be using a 6.67-inch Super Optic screen, which is rumored to be curved.
At last, according to some sources, the OnePlus 7 Pro will have a 90Hz refresh rate, which is way higher than the 60Hz refresh rate of regular smartphones on the market. However, this is not the only device with such a feature, as there is the Razer Phone, the ASUS ROG Phone, the Sharp AQUOS R, and the Sharp R2 Compact. The OnePlus 7 Pro will be packed with a 4000mAh battery and will use OnePlus’s proprietary fast charging technology. The latter will allow the phone to charge for 20 minutes and use it for a full day.
