Watch the OnePlus 7 event live here

They are almost here – the new OnePlus phones will be unveiled in New York with satellite events around the world. And yes, “phones” plural. This year the company is going with a two-tier strategy to give it more flexibility.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will compete with Samsung, Huawei, Apple and others on features, many of which have been officially confirmed as part of the long teaser campaign – here’s what to expect.

The OnePlus 7 will pay more attention to keeping the price tag affordable, but it does promise a number of upgrades over the 6T.

There’s also a 5G phone on the way, OnePlus has already secured partnerships with carriers EE (in the UK) and Elisa (Finland).

If you’re in New York, you can go to the T-Mobile Signature Store at Times Square and handle the new OnePlus phones as soon as the event is over. Starting tomorrow, the OnePlus 7 handsets will be at other T-Mobile stores.

And you should keep an eye on our homepage for first hand impressions of the phone, which we’ll share as soon as possible.
