The event confirms what leaks have divulged over time – OnePlus 7 Pro will arrive in three ram-to-storage combinations: 6GB-128GB, 8GB-256GB, and 12GB-256GB respectively. The OnePlus 7, however, does not get the 12GB privilege and maxes out at 8GB-256GB. Moving on to the common specifications, the OnePlus 7 and the 7 Pro will both sport Qualcomm SnapDragon 855, a QuadHD+ AMOLED display, compatible with HDR10+ standard (therefore supporting Netflix HDR streaming). The OnePlus 7 Series has also received an A+ DisplayMate score for its no-notch, edge-to-edge display (at least on the 7 Pro).
On the other hand, the OnePlus 7 will have a waterdrop-notch like the OnePlus 6T. The notch-less display is called fluid AMOLED by OnePlus, with features like horizon edge lighting. The display also brings 90Hz refresh rate. Furthermore, The OnePlus 7 Pro brings dual stereo speakers in a partnership with Dolby, and Warp Charge that charges 2,000mAh in 20 minutes.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will also sport internal liquid cooling technology, which we are unsure the OnePlus 7 will sport.
