The leak from OnePlus’ homeland shows the alleged 7 alongside another phone, which seems like the OnePlus 6T. While both the phones are within a protective case, their actual identities are somewhat in disguise.

If this is true, then the Oneplus could take the Oppo and Xiaomi’s route and sport a slider mechanism just like in the Find X or Mi Mix 3. There could be a magnetic slider to house its various cameras, sensors, and antenna.

CEO Pete Lau, recently commented that the 5G phone will be launched by the end of May 2019 separate from the OnePlus 7. It will also sport a separate branding than the existing phones. He also disclosed that Oneplus 5G phone will be at least $200-$300 costlier than the OnePlus 6T.

Like most other flagship phones of 2019, these phones could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor. The same has been confirmed by Mr. Lau at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in December last year.
