The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to be launched on May 14 and fans of the smartphone series can’t wait to see if the rumors are true. The Shenzhen-based company has long established the fact that its smartphones are going to pack a punch.

And judging by the rumored specs, the OnePlus 7 Pro will be staying true to tradition. Under the hood, the upcoming device will have a Snapdragon 855 chipset. Storage will vary between 128 GB and 256 GB, with its RAM ranging from 6GB to 8GB depending on the model purchased.

The company has reportedly outfitted the OnePlus 7 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge. Impressive as this is, what CEO Peter Lau is most excited about is the Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, XDADevelopers reported.

This inclusion is also touted to be the reason why the OnePlus 7 Pro will cost $200 more than the OnePlus 6T, landing it at a price point of $749, The Verge reported. Concerning its camera, leaks are suggesting the smartphone will have four snappers.

Three will be located at the rear with respective capabilities of 48 MP lens for image stabilization, 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom, and 16 MP wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field of view. The snapper on the front will apparently have a 16MP f/2.0 lens.

There have been leaks suggesting that the OnePlus 7 Pro will forego the notch feature, relocating the front camera within the device accessible through a pop-up snapper slotted up top. At the bottom of the smartphone are its Type-C USB port, a loudspeaker, and a microphone.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will not have a headphone jack, nor will it have wireless charging capacities. Lau already said that due to the infancy of the technology, they’re not interested in adding a wireless charging feature. However, he did say that they’re looking into improving the technology, with their efforts geared towards overheating issues when a device is being charged.
