OnePlus is all set to launch its new series of smartphones with OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and a 5G variant of the OnePlus 7 on May 14. Now, ahead of official launch, the sketch of the OnePlus 7 Pro has emerged on a newspaper. Furthermore, the phone is confirmed to feature 3x optical zoom.
Starting with the full-page newspaper ad, the sketch of the OnePlus 7 Pro was found in a front page ad in The New York Times. The ad reveals that the phone will feature no bells and whistles, no bezel, no notch, no app lag, no bloatware, no $2000 price tag and no random music. Furthermore, the sketch of the upcoming smartphone confirms that it will be loaded with a triple-camera setup and it will be the first smartphone from OnePlus to come loaded with a pop-up selfie camera. It also hints that the phone will lack headphone jack as well.
No bells and whistles.
Just a better phone.

Meanwhile, Wired got an early hands-on with the OnePlus 7 Pro. The publication confirms that the smartphone will be loaded with 3x optical zoom. The publication got the access of a near final pre-production model and there is an optical of 10x digital zoom as well. “From a pro photographer’s point of view, one of the main differences with a smartphone is the optical zoom,” says OnePlus imaging director Simon Liu to the publication. “On our previous phones, we wanted to maintain a nice phone body that wasn’t too thick, and to make sure the lens didn’t stick out too much,” says Liu. “In this case, the users’ input on forums helped me to get these features onto the phone. But we tried to find the balance over the entire phone experience.”
Previously, the smartphone received highest DisplayMate A+ certification. DisplayMate is considered as the most reliable display evaluation agency in the United States and there are only few devices which receives A-level certification. DisplayMate claimed that the OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone has not only exceeded expectations, but also raised the bar for smartphone displays across the industry.
