OnePlus 7 Pro Will Have HDR10+ Display, UFS 3.0 Storage, But Still No IP Rating

By Tom Pritchard on at

We're about a week out from the OnePlus 7 launch, and OnePlus is throwing out more information about what we should expect. In particular, more features about the OnePlus 7 Pro and what's looking to be one hell of a display.

OnePlus has just confirmed that the phone's display will support HDR10+, meaning you should be able to enjoy the better colouring and picture quality on services that support the standard. Like Netflix and YouTube. DisplayMate has already given the phone an A+ rating (the highest one they offer), and word is it'll have a 90Hz refresh rate and QHD+ resolution.

On top of this OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed on Twitter that the 7 Pro will have UFS 3.0 storage, which means it's going to be a lot faster than we're all used to. It would also make the 7 Pro the first smartphone to support the standard.

Pei has also reiterated the company's stance on IP water resistance ratings, outlining them in a post on the OnePlus forums. In case you didn't already know, OnePlus has avoided IP ratings for a variety of reasons, even if the phones themselves are technically water resistant. One of them is that IP ratings cost money, which would mean a more expensive phone. OnePlus has always said that it offers water resistance that applies to real life, and means your phone could handle a tumble into a bucket of water (substitute for a toilet, pint, or bath) but you shouldn't go swimming with it.

So in other words the OnePlus 7 will be water resistant as ever, but without the IP rating to back it up.

The OnePlus 7 range is set to be unveiled on 14th May, with proceedings kicking off at 2.30pm UK time.
