“Today, we’re going to do something we’ve never done before: unveil the design of our upcoming flagship first in our community,” said Lau in the community post. OnePlus is going to offer users a ‘new smooth matte surface with a brilliant metallic radiance’ with their upcoming flagship. It’s an evolution over the company’s existing 4-curved, matte-frosted glass back, we’ve seen on the Midnight Black and Silk White models in the past.
Now, if you are wondering why OnePlus decided on a circular camera design for the 7T, well, the blog post says that the camera is the first thing many users notice on a phone, and it should make a bold visual statement, while also flowing naturally with the overall design.
OnePlus explains the circular camera cut-out saying, “With perfect symmetry from any orientation, a circular design became the natural choice. A circle’s rounded edges produce an appealing contrast against the straight lines of a smartphone’s rectangular form for a seamless, balanced feel. After going through over fifty design iterations, we think we’ve landed on something pretty special.”
If you haven’t been keeping up with the leaks, the triple camera setup on the OnePlus 7T will include a primary 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, and 12MP telephoto lens. This means OnePlus 7T will offer you versatility while clicking photos and that’s awesome.
