The OnePlus 7 surfaces as a product on a retailer's website
Today (March 8, 2019) marks a propitious, if slightly predictable, turning point in the OnePlus 7 leak calendar. It is the first time it has been listed as a product on a third-party seller's website. The retailer in question is GizTop, whose new page may draw on the strongest lines of speculation around the upcoming phone.
The OnePlus 7 will not be released for a few months; the OEM typically waits until May to July to launch its first flagship of a given year. This has not stopped GizTop from creating a page for it (which is still live at the time of writing). It describes the phone in some detail: the 7 will apparently have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, rear triple cameras, 8GB to 12GB RAM, and Oxygen OS 9 based on Android 9.0 (Pie).
These specs are based on previous leaks, and also elaborate on the OnePlus 6T that preceded this hypothetical new flagship. Then again, GizTop takes the plunge in adding some heretofore-unseen details to its new page. It alleges that the rear camera system will be made up of 48MP, 20MP and 5MP sensors. It also asserts that the 7 will have the "world's fastest screen unlock". However, as it also parrots the leak suggesting that the phone will have a 16MP pop up selfie camera, this is frankly unlikely.
The OnePlus 7 will also apparently have a beefed-up 4000mAh battery, which will be powered by 44-watt "Dash charging". This is a charging trademark used by the OEM in the past, although it is no longer approved in all markets, and has been overtaken by the 30W Warp Charge 30 standard in any case.
The listing also falls down somewhat in the placeholder image used. It shows the full-screen display you may expect from a phone with a hidden front-facing camera, but also omits the Alert Slider that OnePlus has integrated since its 2nd generation of flagships and is unlikely to drop now.
