We all know Oneplus is working on its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Oneplus 7, and again the slogan is ‘Speed You Need’, it means that the company is focusing the performances and in build premium quality. But, it doesn’t seem to end here with the Oneplus 7 which is also said to be a selfie-centric phone, and a first-class photographer, a long runner device, and in fact is an excellent all-rounder.
A Chinese online store, Giztop has recently added a new page for Oneplus 7, which hints a possible imminent launch, most probably next month April 2019. Another reason for suggesting April event is the Oneplus launch pattern. The Oneplus 5 had been launched in June (2017), whereas the successor Oneplus 6 released before in May (2018), and now the fresh-most Oneplus 7 is expected to repeat the same phenomenon, so it would debut in April (2019). Take it with a pinch of salt, because the Oneplus could use previous launch dates too.
Price, Pre-orders, and Shipment
Oneplus 6 was priced at $520, being a successor; the Oneplus 7 price with more is likely to be about $620. The pre-orders will start after the day of the announcement while shipment will begin a month later.

Specs and Features
We have a leaked specs sheet where some of those features have been confirmed for Oneplus 7, while the others still are rumors and expectations. Thanks to Giztop, as it assured few significant features for the upcoming Oneplus smartphone.
No Wireless Charging but 44W Fast Charge
Oneplus CEO has stated officially that there will be no wireless charging support for Oneplus 7. The Company has satisfied civic by saying it would be not fast as wired chargers, and the R&D centers will take more time to develop Fast Wireless Charging accessories, and body material for a smartphone that will not cause a big price hike. However, Oneplus 7 will bring 44W Fast Charging that’s amazing and will help a user to save precious time. We hope with a single charge of an hour, you will be able to wake up a device for an entire day.
The Oneplus 7 will have a long endurance life for talk, play and watch, and it will pack inside a 4000mAh battery.
Design and Display
Oneplus 7 will have a familiar look to Oneplus 6, but it doesn’t place the selfie notch or a punch hole for lens, instead it will have front cam inside; therefore the Oneplus 7 will be called a Sliding Camera phone, which will work like a pro and based on similar mechanism as that of Vivo V15. There we will get a vertical optics alignment on the back, a USB-C at bottom, power key on right and volume rockers on the left; however, it ditches the headphone jack.
