Oppo R19 Leaks hint at design cues for the possible Oneplus 7 design
OnePlus 6T is still weeks away from launch and the android community has already started to wonder how the company’s next in line – future smartphone would be i.e. – the Oneplus 7.
The next Android smartphone from the Chinese Smartphone maker Oneplus will be unveiled on October 30th and all the leaks and rumours indicates that it will come with technologies that are prevalent in the Android market.
The 6T will significantly reduce front-end notch size to water-drop notch, introduce bio-metric sensor on the screen and a premium glass construction rear panel.
Although the design differences with OnePlus 6 are not many, these small additions are certainly enough to win the brand lover back in investing another $500 in every 6 months of time.
Since the brand’s smartphones draws strong inspiration from those of OPPO as part of the same “parent company” BBK Electronics, it is very likely that the trend will continue which will give us plenty of things to speculate about the next OnePlus 7.
The OPPO R15 that was unveiled in March this year had arrived with a notched screen. Two months later, OnePlus 6 got released in May following the same design pattern as seen in the image above. Oneplus 6 borrowed the notched display and thinner bezels from Oppo R15.
Two months ago, the OPPO R17 was released as the successor of the R15 phone. The waterdrop notch display design allowed the R17 to deliver a higher screen-to-body ratio than the R15. Other design elements like super thin bezels surrounding the screen and a vertical aligned dual camera setup at the center in the rear back panel can again be seen borrowed by the upcoming Oneplus 6T.
Popular tipster IceUniverse has revealed that the Chinese manufacturer is working on OPPO R19 smartphone. He has also claimed that the R19 will be arriving with an in-display camera which will make it possible to produce even higher screen space than the R17. IceUniverse has had a consistent track record for leaking information on forthcoming smartphones.
Shown below is the render of the upcoming OPPO R19 smartphone, the alleged twin brother of OnePlus 7. As it can be seen, except for the slightly thicker bottom chin, the display of the alleged OPPO R19 is surrounded by super-slim bezels. The handset features a notch-less display. Instead of the notch, it features a small selfie camera hole at the top portion of the screen. The smartphone is also equipped with an in-screen fingerprint reader.
Hence, there is a possibility that that R19 may sport the in-screen camera display design. OnePlus has been borrowing its display design for its smartphones. For instance, the front appearance of the upcoming OnePlus 6T resembles with OPPO R17 and R17 Pro. Hence, there is a possibility that the OnePlus 7 smartphone arriving next year may also feature in-display camera like the OPPO R19.
The Oppo R19 is speculated to debut in March 2019, however no solid information is available about its hardware specification. Comparing to the past models R17 and R17 Pro, the upgraded R19 could come with Snapdragon 710 or higher, feature an AMOLED screen of around 6.4 inches, Gorilla Glass 6 and 8 GB of RAM.
OnePus 7 is expected to launch right after the R19 in May or June next year.
