The OnePlus 7 Pro has been released and has the buzz mills and the market equally excited. I have been using the device as my  primary driver for a few days now. A full review is coming soon. In the interim, I wanted to talk to you about the three standout features of the OnePlus 7 Pro that caught my eye right away.

OnePlus has ensured that they have a strong flagship in the OnePlus 7 Pro. They have packed in a lot of thoughtful features and used top class crafting and materials. The Android experience has also been made blazing fast. While there are a ton of things that the device has going for itself, three things caught my attention immediately.


OnePlus 7 Pro Display

The first thing you see in any phone is the display and OnePlus has a winner here.The bright, accurate and highly responsive OnePlus 7 Pro display provides a truly immersive experience whether you are running graphically intensive games, or watching movies in ultra high resolutions. In my initial experience, the display is vivid, immersive and has excellent sunlight visibility. Yes, there is no notch. More about that later.

With a refresh rate sitting at 90 Hz, a much smoother animation unfolds with each swipe of your finger. Whether you’re browsing the web or scrolling through social media, the OnePlus 7 Pro provides extraordinary visual fluidity – an unparalleled feeling of smoothness in this class of devices. It going to be great fun watching videos and gaming with this one I guess.

QHD+ offers a more detailed display and a better viewing experience. The Fluid AMOLED display of the OnePlus 7 Pro is made up of 4.49 million individual pixels, which work in unison to create our most premium display experience yet. With a pixel density of 516 ppi, the OnePlus 7 Pro provides a crisper visual experience that feels more true to life. My initial reaction to the display is that my mind is blown at the clarity and crispness.

Triple Camera

The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a powerful triple-lens setup, covering a wide range of focal lengths from 17 mm to 78 mm to meet your every need when it comes to taking pictures. With the help of the all new UltraShot system, the OnePlus 7 Pro will give you an exceptional photographic experience.

The main lens of the OnePlus 7 Pro features Sony’s IMX586, a 48-megapixel, ½ inch super-sized top-grade sensor, plus a custom-made 7-element plastic lens with an aperture of f/1.6 and pixel size up to1.6 µm. Complemented with OIS and EIS, the OnePlus 7 Pro is able to shoot the subtle but stunning details of life under any lighting conditions, giving you a rich and intricate picture every time.

For exquisite detail, sharper images, and better dynamic ranges and colors, OnePlus has effectively tried to rebuild the photography experience and created OnePlus UltraShot,their bespoke imaging algorithm. The UltraShot engine comes with two powerful features, HDR+ and Super Resolution. HDR+ controls the exposure value of each pixel and collects four times more data, which allows each frame of the picture to receive the HDR multi-frame synthesis treatment. Even when taking a picture of miniscule objects such as a strand of hair or a raindrop, the picture will be rendered with crisp quality with HDR+. Super Resolution is another new feature on the OnePlus 7 Pro, which extracts key information from multiple photos through a special algorithm and combines the characteristics of the subjects to enrich and layer the photo with detail, forming a super clear photo.

The 78 mm telephoto lens gets you close to the action without losing image clarity, bringing distant objects three times closer. Portrait mode is tuned to deliver depth and character in every picture, with the lens featuring an f/2.4 aperture and 1µm pixel size, stabilized by OIS.

When dealing with a wide field of view, the 117° Ultra Wide Angle Lens is the perfect companion. Whether you’re looking to show off a wide range of mountains or simply trying to squeeze all of your friends into the shot, the Ultra Wide Angle Lens has you covered. And with an aperture of f/2.2 and a 16-megapixel sensor, it captures the shot with plenty of light and detail too. All in all, it looks like OnePlus has gone to work and put in a lot of effort on the camera and imaging department of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Blazing Fast Performance

OnePlus 7 Pro Performance

The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 mobile platform. The 7 nm chipset features an octa-core Kryo CPU processor, with each core up to 2.84 GHz, is 45% faster and consumes 20% less power than the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845. The Adreno 640 offers a 20% improvement in performance over its predecessor and is 30% more power efficient. Performance should be a breeze with this one. Will know more in the coming days with the phone as my primary driver.

More RAM means more processes all at once. Just like a highway with additional lanes, the extra RAM allows more applications and data to be transferred and processed. The OnePlus 7 Pro is more than capable of processing multiple open applications all at once without slowing down in performance.

Couple that with Oxygen OS that does so much so fast and yet stays out of your way and you have a blazing fast performance monster in your hands. Having upto 12 GB RAM adds to this and makes this phone one of the smoothest and fastest flagships around.

So these are the three things that immediately stood out in the OnePlus 7 Pro for me. What are your favorite features in this phone? Let me know.
