OnePlus 7 leak teases notch-less, sliding camera design

14 January 2019

The coming year, we are going to be seeing more of such innovation, as OEMs continue throwing ideas at the wall, just to see what clicks with the consumers. It suggests that OnePlus might opt for a slider mechanism to accommodate the front camera and some other components.

The picture contains two devices in cases that are meant to hide their identities. Looking at the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, it isn't surprising that OnePlus is trying to shrink the notch into oblivion.

The device on the left is a now unknown device, which sports a similar icon and widget setup. However, there are little chances that OnePlus 7 would be that 5G device. Interestingly, there is a cut-out on the protective casing above the OnePlus 7's top edge hinting towards a slider mechanism which when slid up will fill up the now empty space on the case. However, even with the protective casing of the device, there are some things that we have been able to identify. Up on closer observation, we were able to find the textured red-hued slider button and the power button in the right side edge and the volume rocker on the left.

In case this is indeed true, then the screen-to-body ratio of OnePlus 7 would be 95%, which will make it the best smartphone in display, beating Mi Mix 3 whose screen-to-body ratio is 93.4%. From the get-go, notched designs seemed forced, especially when countless Android manufacturers jumped on the bandwagon seemingly instantaneously, as if major display manufacturers were behind the design trend.
