There are many rumours surrounding the OnePlus 7, and all the fancy new features it's alleged to have. We also heard earlier today that the phone may well be launching on 14th May, but since that information came from a reputed leaker we can't be sure it's definitely the case. What we do know, however, is that there will be news happening this Wednesday.
I know you guys are stoked to hear about the new device - check back to see my post this Wednesday 😬

That is Pete Lau, the co-founder and CEO of OnePlus, who would know all about this sort of thing. He's the boss, and he gets to say what gets released when, which appears to be this Wednesday.
This probably won't be the proper OnePlus 7 announcement, so don't get your hopes up for that. OnePlus has been very fond of its events in the past, going so far as to shift a launch event around after Apple swooped in and copied their launch date. Plus it's a company that's built itself up on hype, and not hyping up the upcoming phone isn't really its style.
We haven't heard much official news about the next OnePlus so far, so my guess is that this will be the start of the road to the OnePlus 7. So expect plenty more teasers from the company in the coming weeks.
