OnePlus 7 reportedly appears with no notch, fueling potential bezel-less slider design

A rumored but very plausible OnePlus 7 leaking test device has appeared online, courtesy of Slashleaks, where this unknown OnePlus unit is shown next to the excellent OnePlus 6T.

We’re just going down from the highest level that was the OnePlus 6T (after the company’s immensely popular OnePlus 6), which eliminated some features, but still managed to add a lot to the killer’s mainline, albeit at the expense of some core fans

If the images are really real, then the clear lack of a notch could be of interest to many of those who are still convinced that a notched device is not for them. It also adds fuel to the rumor that the OnePlus 7 can favor the form factor of the slider instead of the camera’s trimming throw on the drill hole style screen.

(That said, in my opinion, the smaller tear option remains one of the best implementations on any smartphone).

We can only speculate at this point, but without a notch, surely this means that we could see the sliding mechanism of the front camera? The front camera has to be there somewhere, it’s the best explanation the Internet can find at this moment. I would also be willing to agree.

It seems interesting because of the small glance that has been given to us, since the rest of the cuts do seem to coincide with those found in the previous OnePlus devices. The loudspeaker grille at the top looks very stretched when compared to OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T.

While we can see the potential top of the OnePlus 7, we have not yet seen the chin area. It will be interesting to see if OnePlus can opt for an approach similar to the Oppo Find X, which of course is produced by the sister company Oppo.

Once again, we would take these leaks, like all leaks, with a little skepticism. But there are many telltale signs that point to this being, at a minimum, a OnePlus test device of some kind.
