The upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone has leaked online over a week before it is due to be announced, at a launch event on May 14.

The handset looks similar to leaked images of the lesser OnePlus 7. This means a completely edge-to-edge display with almost no bezel at all on any side.

The front camera cannot be seen in the new images, published by WinFuture, but it has previously been spotted that the OnePlus 7 has an innovative pop-up front camera, which rises up from above the display when you want to take a selfie or use your phone to unlock the handset.

Around the back, the leaked images of the OnePlus 7 Pro show the familiar OnePlus logo and three camera arranged vertically.

OnePlus boss Pete Lau has previously said the new phone will feature a "breakthrough" display panel, although it isn't known exactly what this refers to. It is believed it could be a higher refresh rate, which will make movement on the screen - such as the animations when opening and closing apps - smoother.

The images show the phone in two colors, black and a metallic blue.

Previous leaks claim the OnePlus 7 will have a 6.5-inch OLED display and an in-screen fingerprint scanner, as seen on the six-month-old OnePlus 6T. It is also claimed the rear camera will include a time-of-flight sensor to help it take better blurred-background photos, and there will be a USB-C port or usual.

We expect the phone to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery and boast stereo speakers, Qualcomm 855 processor, and between 6Gb and 12GB of RAM, depending on which version of the handset you buy.

A 5G version of the OnePlus 7 Pro is also expected this year, but it is unknown if this will feature any design changes compared to the handset in the leaked photos above.

No details are known about the price of the OnePlus 7, but the company is known for undercutting its rivals like Apple and Samsung. The OnePlus 6T, for example, was priced at just $549 when it launched in October 2018, some $200 less than even the supposedly budget flagship options of the iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10e. We suspect the price for the OnePlus 7 may creep up a little further, as has become habit from OnePlus, but it should still remain comfortably below that of its rivals.
