The 7 Pro is nicer and flashier, but it's also more expensive, while the 7 is more affordable but doesn't have quite as much to offer.
The OnePlus 7 Pro starts at an incredible $669 for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. OnePlus has also implemented what it calls the Horizon Light, which lights up the edges of the display with a blue light (when the display is off) to let you know that you have a notification.
The OnePlus 7 Pro signifies OnePlus' coming of age as they step into the truly premium smartphone market and attempt to play with the big dogs. The phone has a 6.67-inch Quad HD+ display on the front which is a first on any OnePlus smartphone. Not only does it have ample brightness and resolution, it's the first smartphone OLED with a 90Hz refresh rate. As you might be aware of, the OnePlus 7 Pro scored A+ rating from DisplayMate and the company is calling the screen as Fluid AMOLED.
It certainly feels like a conservative upgrade and probably won't be enough of a change for OnePlus 6T owners to justify upgrading - but then if you're in that boat there's always the OnePlus 7 Pro, which is the company's true flagship for 2019. The phone measures 8.8mm in thickness and weights 206 grams. Internally, the phone is driven by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC, paired with up to 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM as well as up to 256 GB of NAND flash storage. The $700 model, for just $30 more, gives you 2GB more RAM and double the storage to 256GB. Well, you can say OnePlus has supercharged its Screen Recorder to provide you every feature you may need while capturing the screen.
Like the Pro, the OnePlus 7 features stereo speakers tuned by Dolby for better audio. The company has also improved the in-display fingerprint reader to a point where I no longer notice a delay unlocking the phone.
As for other features, there aren't many. The warp charge auto adapter has the advantage of not just being the adapter, but also including a USB A to USB C cable in OnePlus fashion as well. Both phones run the same version of OxygenOS, which is based on Android Pie, with all the same bonus features. As for the battery, there's a 4000mAh unit underneath.
Launched at an event in NY on Tuesday, the OnePlus 7 Pro follows the company's strategy of offering premium features at a reasonable price. Combined, both offer a high degree of rugged protection for the phone against spills and falls.
Meanwhile the OnePlus 7 Pro's pricing starts at £649 for the 6/128GB model, rising to £699 for the 8/256GB model, and all the way up to £799 for the 12/256GB model. The phone supports super slow-motion video recording at 1080p and 720p resolution.
The pop-up selfie camera houses a 16MP sensor.
OnePlus 7 Pro has a new design that's created to "disappear in your hand", said Kiang.
OnePlus will be holding three launch events in London, New York and Bangalore today that will reveal the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The entry-level variant will only be available in Mirror Grey, the mid-tier variant in all the three colours, while the top-end version can only be had in Nebula Blue. The phone can also be purchased from Amazon India.
The OnePlus 7's prices are much closer to the old OnePlus 6T's.
The notch housing the front facing camera has been replaced with a pop-up selfie camera of 16MP which takes just 0.53 seconds to slide out. The OnepPlus 7 Pro is definitely capable of handling all that with the Snapdragon 855 beating inside.
