OnePlus has announced pop up events for its OnePlus 7 series of devices. Truth be said, the company mentions only the OnePlus 7 Pro in the attached image, but chances are you’ll be able to spend some time with both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro at these locations, as both of those phones are expected to arrive on May 14.
OnePlus has announced that it is organizing six pop-up events across the US, including New York, Chicago, Miami Beach, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Santa Monica. As far as Europe is concerned, pop-up events are being organized in nine countries, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.
If you click on this link, you will be able to see the exact times those pop-up events will take place, and where exactly will they be located, that goes for both the US and Europe. Needless to say, those pop-up events are being organized on May 14, when the phone is launching.
The company says that you will be able to “meet some familiar faces”, grab some snacks, and pick up the company’s newest flagship smartphone if you attend those events. That’s not all, the first 200 buyers at each of those locations will get a “special gift”, says the company. We still do not know what that is, but we’re assuming that it is one of OnePlus’ other products, maybe a backpack or something of the sort. On the other hand, it’s possible that the company will be handing out free cases for the OnePlus 7 Pro, who knows.
OnePlus is expected to announce three smartphones during its press conference on May 14, the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The latter two phones are expected to be identical in pretty much every way, except the 5G variant will support 5G connectivity. The OnePlus 7 will be somewhat different from the OnePlus 7 Pro, though.
Both phones will be made out of metal and glass, while both will ship with the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor. Rumors are claiming that both devices will be water resistant, but without an IP rating. Both phones are also said to sport stereo speakers, and Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on them, along with OnePlus’ OxygenOS. You can also expect to get UFS 3.0 flash storage in both instances, and OnePlus’ new phones will be the first in the market to offer UFS 3.0.
The OnePlus 7 Pro will sport three cameras on the back, no display notches or holes, and it will pack in a pop-up camera on the top. The phone will ship with a 6.67-inch QHD+ curved Fluid AMOLED display, and its display will offer a refresh rate up to 90Hz. The OnePlus 7, on the other hand, will sport a waterdrop display notch, two cameras on the back, and a 6.41-inch fullHD+ Optic AMOLED display, if rumors are anything to go by.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is also rumored to include 30W War Charge fast charging, while the OnePlus 7 is said to sport 20W fast charging. The two phones will be similar in size, it seems, and both will ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Neither of the two phones will include a 3.5mm headphone jack, though.
