OnePlus 7 Pro Variant Tipped to Feature 48MP Triple Camera Setup
According to Twitter user @Samsung_News_, the OnePlus 7 Pro variant will be equipped with a 48MP triple-camera setup at the rear. The primary 48MP sensor will apparently be joined by an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens offering a 117-degree field of view. While the telephoto lens is said to have an f/2.4 aperture, the ultra-wide-angle lens will have an f/2.2 aperture. As shown by leaked CAD renders, the Pro variant will have a pop-up selfie camera module. The resolution of the selfie camera, however, has not been revealed yet.
A slightly different leak today:

Going by recently leaked CAD renders of the standard OnePlus 7 variant, it will be largely identical to the OnePlus 6T (review) from the outside. As mentioned above, the Pro variant will have a refreshed design with a pop-up selfie camera and triple cameras at the rear. Under the hood, we expect both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. A recent leak claimed the OnePlus 7 Pro will be the company’s first smartphone to have a Quad HD+ resolution Super AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Some of the other rumored features of the OnePlus 7 Pro include a USB 3.1 Type-C port, 4000mAh battery with 30W WARP fast charging, and stereo speakers.
