OnePlus has now become a household name. The company started its operations back in 2013 as a kickstarter project with the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 6T is its best representation of how great an affordable phone can be. After launching the OnePlus 3, OnePlus released a slightly upgraded variant of the same with the moniker OnePlus 3T, and since then its been followed for every new OnePlus device launch.

OnePlus' next flagship will be called the OnePlus 7 and the leaks have started coming in already. The company is expected to showcase the OnePlus 7 smartphone in Q2 of 2019.

The first OnePlus 7 leak comes courtesy of CoolAPK (removed), later reposted by SlashLeaks, a discussion platform where anonymous users share images/details of upcoming devices. The image leaked shows an unknown OnePlus smartphone (on the left) besides the latest OnePlus 6T smartphone (on the right), both in a protective case.

The device on the left happens to have a full-screen bezel-less display with no waterdrop notch as seen on the 6T. The bezels on the edges are also minimal and the right side hosts the alert slider with the power button just below it. It can be clearly noticed that the alert slider has a red paint job, not seen on any OnePlus device.

Above the bezel-less display is the earpiece speaker which covers half the width of the device and has a silverish finish. The case surrounding the phone has an extended top which has got a pair of cutouts for a large front-facing camera, and a LED notification and proximity sensor. The empty cutout space allegedly points that the device might have a sliding camera design similar to the Honor Magic 2 or Mi Mix 3. If not a slider design, it might come with a motorized camera as seen on the Oppo Find X smartphone.

Popular concept designer Ben Geskin (@VenyaGeskin1) on Twitter shared its visualization of the same device and it looks dope 🔥

We would like to note that do take this leak with a pinch of salt as there's no word on its authenticity. If this transpires to be a real deal, then OnePlus will have an edge ahead of its competitor with a premium design smartphone at a budget cost.

The leaks have just started coming in, and we have around four more months in hand for the official launch. So, keep following us for more OnePlus 7 news.
