Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is gearing up to launch its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 7. CEO Pete Lau on Monday asked OnePlus fans on Twitter to keep an eye out on his handle in the coming days for a new exciting announcement.
As promised, Lau on Wednesday teased the OnePlus 7 on the social media platform.
“Excited to share the next product from OnePlus will unleash a new era of Fast and Smooth. Especially Smooth! Smooth is more challenging than Fast – a true test of hardware and software.
The new product is just beautiful – I can’t wait for you to see it,” Lau tweeted.

The new punchline “Fast and Smooth” can mean a few interesting things.
Some Tweeters believe the “Smooth” part could refer to the presence of a 90Hz high refresh rate display, as the company has always used “Fast” and “Speed” to describe its products.
The teaser video shows the silhouette of new device from the company. The silhouette hints at the presence of a curved display and a bezel-less design, although it is difficult confirm the same through video.
Neither Lau nor OnePlus have officially mentioned the name of the device. Reports suggest that OnePlus might launch two devices this year, apart from the incremental “T” upgrade that will come later this year. While the regular device is expected to be called the OnePlus 7, the other higher-end device would likely called the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are expected to sport flagship specifications like Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC along with 8GB RAM.
The regular OnePlus 7 is also expected to boast a dual rear camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor.
We expected OnePlus to reveal the launch date of the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro yesterday, but it turns out we might have to wait a bit longer for that.
Some tipsters believe that the OnePlus 7 would be launched on May 14.
