After loads of speculation and rumours, OnePlus has just announced the official launch date for their next flagship series i.e. OnePlus 7 Series with a simultaneous launch in New York United States, London UK and Bangalore India (8:15 PM IST). OnePlus used to launch only one flagship device at a time, but this year it is set to change. The official announcement declares it as “OnePlus 7 Series launch” which basically confirms the launch of more than one device.
The official launch date basically is the same as the earlier leak indicated.
Yesterday, the company’s CEO, Pete Lau took to Twitter to drop a hint about the phone. Apparently, the OnePlus 7 will employ an “all-new display technology”. And this technology costs 3 times the cost of other flagship displays.
So, what can we take from this? Expect the OnePlus 7 series to arrive with a massive price tag. Rumours so far have suggested that we could be looking at a phone above $600, and if that Tweet tells us something, it could be even more.

OnePlus 7 Series smartphones may launch on May 14th globally
A new rumour indicates that OnePlus may officially launch their OnePlus 7 series smartphones globally next month on May 14. This launch date information comes from tipster Ishan Agarwal. You did read that “OnePlus 7” series right as rumours indicate that OnePlus is set to launch more than one smartphone this year instead of just one. If you remember, OnePlus 6 was launched on May 16 last year globally, hence the date of May 14 is almost one year later.
OnePlus 7 Series Variants??
The tipster also revealed the model numbers of the OnePlus 7 Variants that are confirmed to officially launch this year. The three variants are:
- GM1901,03,05 – OnePlus 7
- GM1911,13,15,17 – OnePlus 7 Pro, and
- GM1920 – OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
He has also shared some launch teaser image for OnePlus 7 Pro which also reveals the tagline for OnePlus 7 series, which is “Go Beyond Speed”. If you remember, the tagline for OnePlus 6 was “The Speed You Need” while for OnePlus 6T the tagline was “Unlock The Speed“.
We have already seen the alleged real-life images of OnePlus 7 Pro that revealed the curved edge display with a notchless display. we have also seen some alleged unofficial renders of OnePlus 7 which revealed the pop-up camera module. These images also revealed the alleged hardware specifications of the device. As per that leak, OnePlus 7 Pro features a 6.67 inch super optic display powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. It comes with 8GB of RAM & 256GB internal storage and runs on Android 9.0 (Pie) based operating system.
In terms of camera, it features a triple camera module at rear consisting of camera sensors of 48MP, 16MP and 8MP. It also confirmed the model number as “GM1915” which is the same as we have seen with the Bluetooth certification of a new device from OnePlus. The Model number of “GM1915” appears totally different from the Model numbers of earlier devices from OnePlus, the last one being A6010 and A6013 for OnePlus 6T.
