OnePlus just launched its flagship, the OnePlus 7 Pro at an event in Bengaluru, along with parallel satellite events in New York and London. This year, OnePlus launched not just one but two phones, a regular variant, and a Pro variant. While the regular variant is in itself a great phone, it is the Pro variant that is surely going to turn some heads with its blend of amazing flagship-level features at a mouth-watering price.
Specs sheets won’t do justice to this phone as most of its noteworthy features are something to be experienced first hand, like its Quad HD+ AMOLED display with an industry first 90Hz refresh rate, UFS 3.0 storage, etc. In fact, the Snapdragon 855, and up to 12GB(!) of RAM, along with UFS3.0 storage could make the OnePlus 7 Pro the smoothest and one of the fastest, if not the fastest Android device of 2019.
