OnePlus is all set to launch a new ‘flagship killer’ next month
Samsung, Huawei, and Apple, all three smartphone giants have launched their flagships products in recent times. And now, the flagship killer OnePlus is planning to “kill them all” by once again launching an affordable smartphone in the premium segment.
OnePlus is all set to release its next flagship series under the branding of OnePlus 7 next month, as affirmed by the young leakster, Ishan Agarwal. This time OnePlus is apparently launching not one but two devices i.e. OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The tagline of #GoBeyondSpeed mentioned in the poster circulating over Twitter shows that the Chinese phone maker is apparently looking forward to upgrading processors and interface of the upcoming devices.
The launch date of proposed OnePlus variants is said to be 14th of May and this means that we are less than a month away from the launch of next flagship killer. Meanwhile, CEO OnePlus, Pete Lau has yet to make revelations on the upcoming device tomorrow. At this time, we don’t know whether he will be telling us the launch date of the phone, or we will be getting the teaser of first official details. As he said in a recent tweet;
I know you guys are stoked to hear about the new device – check back to see my post this Wednesday ?

Previous leaks have suggested that OnePlus 7 would be a phone with a true edge-to-edge screen with no notch, a dream form factor that we all are awaiting since notches came to being. OnePlus will be adopting a popup camera mechanism similar to its sister companies Vivo and OPPO in order to provide a bezel-less and notch-less screen. Rumors also suggest that there might also be a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, despite the company’s claims of not being in a rush to jump on that train.
OnePlus has successfully developed itself as a value-for-money brand and has ruined marketing stunts of various phone makers for their expensive devices. However, the company is slowly growing prices with every new phone, as we witnessed in OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6 variants.
Do you think, OnePlus would be able to retain its ‘flagship killer’ title?
