OnePlus 7 Pro

--The OnePlus 7 Pro is supposed to be a proper flagship smartphone, as the leaks and rumours have suggested so far. The OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to be presented as a rival to the Apple iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10, with prices expected to start from Rs 49,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM. There will be a 12GB RAM variant with 256GB storage that could cost close to Rs 58,000.

--Similar to previous OnePlus smartphones, the OnePlus 7 Pro will indeed come with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. Oxygen OS based on Android 9 Pie is expected to be on board looking after the daily errands.

--Since the OnePlus 7 Pro will be an ultra-premium flagship, OnePlus is rumoured to offer a 90Hz Curved AMOLED display with Quad HD+ resolution. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau already said that the display is three times costlier than other conventional displays on other phones, thereby indirectly hinting towards the 90Hz Refresh Rate.

--Wired got hands-on with an earlier prototype device confirming a triple rear camera setup, consisting of a 3X optical zoom camera. Another cover photoshoot for the National Geographic magazine confirmed the presence of a wide-angle camera. The leaks have suggested a combination of a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor along with a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and we wouldn't be surprised if this information is proven true.

--Similar to many Oppo and Vivo phones, the OnePlus 7 Pro will make use of a pop-up selfie camera to eliminate the display notch.

--The leaks have also suggested that OnePlus will carry over the 30W Warp Charge from the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.

OnePlus 7

--The OnePlus 7 is broadly expected to be similar to the OnePlus 6T, albeit with updated specifications. The base variant of the OnePlus 7 is expected to touch the Rs 40,000 mark this year.

--The OnePlus 7, as the leaks suggest, will have a conventional 60Hz Full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch on top. It will still get the optical in-display fingerprint sensor.

--In terms of internal specifications, the OnePlus 7 will be powered by the same Snapdragon 855 chipset with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It will run on Oxygen OS based on Android 9 Pie.

--The rear cameras is where the OnePlus 7 is expected to differ from the OnePlus 7 Pro. Instead of triple camera setup, the OnePlus 7 will have a dual camera system, with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

Other OnePlus stuff expected at tonight's launch
