OnePlus is getting ready to launch a line of big screen televisions, and after a year of collecting feedback from its users, has decided on a name: OnePlus TV. The company decided to keep the branding simple, though the decision was "harder than you could imagine" due to receiving "so many creative names" since kicking off its TV naming competition. "Yes, we are going to call our very first smart TV product 'OnePlus TV'—simple yet to-the-point—as we believe there's no other name that can best represent our value, vision and pride than naming it with our own brand," a community consultant stated on the OnePlus forums.

Sprint is going all-in with 5G wireless connectivity, and has announced that it will make available a fourth 5G-compatible device for its network. The fourth-place wireless carrier – which will soon merge with third-place T-Mobile – already sells the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ and the HTC 5G Hub. The fourth device will be an unnamed smartphone from OnePlus. The most obvious device that Sprint could introduce is the already announced OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G looks largely identical to its OnePlus 7 Pro counterpart, including its Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6.67-inch 90Hz display, 4000 mAh battery and 256GB of internal storage. The primary... Read more...
Wait a second, didn't OnePlus just release the OnePlus 7 Pro? Well, things move quickly in the smartphone realm, and OnePlus is an OEM that iterates on a lightning-fast schedule with new devices. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we're hearing word of an upcoming OnePlus 7T Pro that could be released before the year is up. Images of this alleged OnePlus 7T Pro were posted to the Chinese social media website Weibo, and don't really give much away in terms of appearances. From what we can tell, not much (if anything) has been changed with regards to its display or the pop-up selfie camera mechanism (which is wicked cool to see in operation). Most of the design details surrounding the phone... Read more...
Issues with batteries inside smartphones and other tech devices that pose a fire hazard are nothing new. Samsung has had problems with its flagship Galaxy Note 7 device catching fire; Apple has been associated with battery fires also, most recently with the 2015 MacBook Pro. Budget smartphone maker OnePlus has been called out in India for a smartphone that allegedly caught fire while it was sitting unplugged and turned off. The owner of the smartphone claims that it caught fire at about 3:15 am on July 3 as it sat unused. The smartphone is said to have been sitting in an air-conditioned room when the user woke up to a burning smell. The user alleges that fumes were pouring out of the device,... Read more...
We have no qualms recommending the OnePlus 7 Pro as it currently exists—it combines a killer display with a 90Hz refresh rate, with high-end hardware and excellent camera performance, all at a price point that is easier to swallow than some competing flagship Android phones.  As good as the phone already is, however, an upcoming firmware update is going to add some nifty new features. The feature we are most excited about is video recording support getting added to the ultra-wide camera. This could be a game changer for some folks, and has been a widely requested upgrade. For OnePlus 7 Pro owners who have been pining for ultra-wide video recording, the OnePlus team confirmed that the... Read more...
The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the most highly anticipated Android phones to hit the market this year for a number of reasons. At first blush, it was about a few stand-out specs. The phone's 6.7-inch display supports a speedy 90Hz refresh rate and a super-tight 3120x1440 QHD+ resolution in punchy, HDR10+ certified OLED technology. The new OnePlus phone is also powered by the fastest Qualcomm chip on the market currently, the Snapdragon 855, but it's also backed up but up to 12GB of RAM as well as up to 256GB of snappy new UFS 3.0 based Flash storage. Oh, and the aforementioned display is not marred by either a notch, nor a bullet-hole punch-out for its front facing camera -- nothing, nada, just... Read more...
A new color option is available for the OnePlus 7 Pro, just do not call it gold. OnePlus is calling it "Almond," and announced on Twitter earlier today that it is coming soon. How soon? A couple of weeks, apparently—the new OnePlus 7 Pro Almond is available to order now starting at $699, and is listed as shipping "within 14 days." Thoughtfully designed and expertly crafted. Embrace the elegance of the #OnePlus7Pro Almond soon. pic.twitter.com/orTDo8zpmb — OnePlus (@oneplus) June 11, 2019 As of this moment, the OnePlus 7 Pro in Almond is only available with 8GB of RAM paired with 256GB of onboard storage. It is an interesting arrangement of colors and specs, consisting of the following... Read more...
Consumers all around the world have adopted affordable smartphones by the masses as the price of high-end devices pushes ever higher. One of the brands seeing demand increase is OnePlus, and this month it launched its new flagship device called the OnePlus 7 Pro. Almost as soon as users got their devices in hand, reports began to flood in on Reddit and OnePlus' support forums that the smartphone was suffering from a bizarre phantom touch issue. The issue presents as the screen of the device randomly responding to touches that aren't there that some have dubbed "phantom" or "ghost" touches. Users on the OnePlus support forum have been running the CPU-Z app on their devices to see if their smartphone... Read more...
Biometric security measures are improving all the time, though they are not infallible. This is demonstrated on the recently launched OnePlus 7 Pro. It has a fingerprint sensor that is embedded in the full-front display, and with a little bit of glue and a few minutes of time, it can be easily thwarted. Well, sort of. The process itself is rather simple. It basically entails creating a rudimentary mold of a fingerprint using aluminum foil, a dab of hot glue, and a little bit of Elmer's glue. It's a cheap hack, in other words, albeit an effective one on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Incidentally, the same method was proven to work on the previous generation OnePlus 6T. YouTube channel Max Tech demonstrated... Read more...
OnePlus today officially revealed its latest flagship smartphone, which is powered by the hottest mobile SoC on the planet right now: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. The OnePlus 7 Pro is a powerhouse flagship that has enough muscle and features to take on the best that its Android competitors have to offer, while offering a price that is hard to beat. This beast of a smartphone pairs the Snapdragon 855 with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of ultra-fast UFS 3.0 internal storage. Up front, you have a nearly bezel-free display design thanks to the fact that the OnePlus 7 Pro uses a motorized pop-up 16MP selfie camera that hides away when not in use. The pop-up mechanism presents in 0.53 seconds and is... Read more...
OnePlus has been talking up the unreleased OnePlus 7 Pro, though most of the chatter up to this point has been centered on the display—Pete Lau, CEO at OnePlus, has promised it will be "super smooth and very crisp." But in addition to having a fancy OLED panel, we now know the OnePlus 7 Pro will also feature faster UFS 3.0 storage. This was also confirmed by Lau, who stated on Twitter that UFS 3.0 storage on the OnePlus 7 Pro will "give you [a] next level #fastandsmooth experience." "OnePlus 7 Pro having UFS 3.0 storage means it’ll just be overall faster than comparable smartphones." Yes, the OnePlus 7 Series will include UFS 3.0 to give you next level #fastandsmooth experience. 😎... Read more...
We’re just a few weeks away from the official launch of the OnePlus 7 family of flagship smartphones, but the leaks have been coming in at a rapid pace. Today, we’ve got a clear look at the OnePlus 7 Pro in two different colors: Mirror Grey and Nebula Blue.  The images, which show the smartphone from the front and the back, confirm the notch-less display, which is made possible by a pop-up selfie camera. Also clearly visible are minimal bezels around the display and the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint reader; a holdover from the OnePlus 6T.  Out back, we get a glimpse at the triple rear cameras, which is an upgrade from the dual cameras on the OnePlus 6T....

It will not be long before OnePlus formally introduces its next flagship phones, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, which are expected to arrive in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, some benchmark scores are starting to pop up. Over at Geekbench, there are at least three sets of scores for a "OnePlus GM1917," all of which crack the 11,000 mark in the multi-score test. The OnePlus GM1917 is the OnePlus 7 Pro variant. Assuming there is no funny business going on with the database entries, the upcoming handset is looking like a strong contender. Here is a look at the scores that have popped up in the database so far... We cannot say for sure if those scores are legitimate. If they are, then the... Read more...
At this point, we know that OnePlus is poised to launch its flagship OnePlus 7 phones on May 14th. Over the past few weeks, OnePlus has been teasing features of the phones, with that latest coming via a tweet. The latest teaser shows a line art drawing of the OnePlus 7 Pro with three vertically-aligned rear cameras. This lines up with previous reports and leaked renders of the OnePlus 7 Pro. The lesser, "standard" OnePlus 7 is expected to soldier on with a dual camera setup on the rear. Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4— OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 It's likely that OnePlus is destined to add an ultra-wide-angle... Read more...
