The teaser does not seem to be revealing much except a part of the phone and judging by the curved display of the smartphone in the teaser, it seemingly is OnePlus 7 Pro.
OnePlus is expected to launch three variants of the smartphone this time around: OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The OnePlus 7 model is said to come with a flat display, while OnePlus 7 Pro will have a curved display. There is also a 5G variant of the smartphone that is rumored to launch alongside the other two.

Most smartphones come with a 60Hz refresh rate. A higher refresh rate means the animations and overall interactions with the smartphone would be relatively smoother. This is probably one of the features both OnePlus and the fans are excited about.
According to the Weibo leak, OnePlus 7 Pro is shown to be coming in with dual-edged display, similar to the display on Samsung Galaxy S10. The phone is seen to be sporting a notch-less display which further hints at a pop-up selfie camera. The back of the smartphone is not shown in the leaked images. Another leak gives us an insight into the specifications of the smartphone, and the ‘About Phone’ section reveals that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be coming in with a 6.67-inch Super Optic display, a Snapdragon 855 processor paired with 8GB RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and triple rear camera setup. The camera module on the smartphone compromises of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel secondary sensor, and an 8-megapixel tertiary sensor. The OnePlus 7 is listed to run on Android Pie.
OnePlus 7 along with its siblings is expected to launch on May 14, although the date has not been confirmed by OnePlus itself.
