I think this will be the flagship of the year, dollar for dollar. Snapdragon 855, tons of ram, big screen, big battery and the best take on Android ever. Oxygen OS is on another level.

I'm not sure if I'll buy it, but it's the only high end phone that has me intrigued until 5G comes out and I upgrade my iPhone 8+.

Anyone pre-order?

Yep. Camera is going to be behind Google and Samsung. Screen will most likey not be top of the line. OnePlus phones don't come with micro SD. The phones are a joy to use, but someone who is huge into camera shouldn't consider one in the first place.

$600 for oneplus and $600 for a Dslr is better than any phone camera. Just my opinion.

Completely agree. I’ve owned a few OnePlus phones (including the 6T) and have really liked them, but the camera performance has always been a bit of let down. Particularly when dealing with moving objects.

A OnePlus 7 for around $650 is hard to beat. OnePlus, motorola and Google are very similar in how they handle Android. Both Moto and OnePlus are nearly stock Android with their own little touches.

OnePlus makes some great phones. The days of them being a budget oriented brand are pretty much over. The OnePlus 3 is still the best deal I’ve ever gotten on a phone.

The Pro looks like the device to get but that price tag is screaming $800+. The regular 7 seems like a 6TT.

Yep. Seems they are now branching out, making one decently affordable with good specs and then the Pro will come with all the new awesome stuff packed in. Cannot wait to see this.

This sounds incredible. Interesting to see what the price points will be. Not sure if this is a better buy than my Samsung S10 512GB Ceramic!
OnePlus phones are on another level. You won't get a best in class camera or QHD like Samsung, but oxygen os is way better than whatever Samsung is calling their version of Android. Dash charge is really handy too. OnePlus phones always have some of the best battery life for a flagship due to their large batteries and lower resolution screen. And if you're into custom roms there probably isn't a better phone period.

I wish they'd branch out and make a smaller device. I do like Oxygen OS, but around 150mm x 71mm is the largest I'm willing to carry around with me.

...and if previous years are anything to go by, a mediocre camera
And a lack for USB c 3.1 with hdmi output
And the list goes on. Idu why peoples fall for this oneplus scam, for me is pretty expensive for what offers. Oneplus 6t ...

It'd probably be a good phone, but would most likely lack a micro SD card slot and headphone jack, and if that's the case then no deal from me.
