It is 16x7.5x.7cm and weighs 204 grams. The viewable screen is 15.4x7cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 6.67 inches.
Going around the outside has a lock button on the right side with the on/off button below this. The base has a reasonable speaker, pin hole microphone and USB ‘C’ charging connection. The left side has the volume rocker and SIM entry point. The back has the three cameras in a column 1.5cm down from the top with the LED flash below them.
The CPU is a Snapdragon 855, it has 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM. It runs the current version of Android 9.
Bootup is 15 seconds and shutdown is only 2 seconds.
The screen is QHD+ and has an amazing 90HZ refresh rate. While on the screen OnePlus claim a .21 second screen unlock time.
The main lens on the camera is 48MP; there is 3x optical zoom – actually 2.87x - and a wide angle offering that is said to give up to 48% wider view.
The battery is a massive 4000mAh offering and there is a Warp Charge facility which is stated to give a 34% decrease on charging time over the OnePlus 6T. According to OnePlus a lot of earlier phones heat up during charging and that causes charging times to increase the OnePlus 7 Pro has liquid cooling built in.
I was more than happy with all the images and videos that this unit captured. The front camera on most cameras takes some of the display screen be it centrally mounted or to the topside of the screen, not with the OnePlus 7 Pro it actually pops up above the screen on top of the display, as soon as you revert to using the rear camera it disappears.
There is no 3.5mm socket but it will support headphones or earbuds via the USB ‘C’ port.
The 4G version I was sent has a dual Nano SIM socket, however the specifications state that the 5G version only has a single Nano SIM socket.
Having dual speakers on a SmartPhone is rare and here you have Dolby Atmos output via dual speakers.
You will notice I have not mentioned a visible fingerprint sensor it’s because it’s built into the display and normally invisible.
The unit is certified to work on O2, Three, EE and Vodafone.
High spots for me were the display very fast – no lag – and if you check their website they have clips to display this and the fact that Gorilla Glass should protect it from the odd knock and perhaps best of all its size and the quality of the photos with real optical zoom.
At the time of publication the OnePlus 7 Pro is available in blue or grey from Amazon for £699.
