This feature was introduced as a part of OxygenOS 9.5 on the sidelines of OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 launch.

After a myriad of leaks, rumours, teasers and then an official launch, the OnePlus 7 Pro (review) will finally be available for purchase starting today. For those unaware, the OnePlus 6T will not be discontinued for the time being and will be available for purchase along with the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The two variants cost ₹48,999 and ₹52,999 respectively.

As for the top-end variant with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the price tag goes up to Rs 57,999.

Obviously, we don't know anything about the financial details of this deal, at least not yet, but after RDJ earned a reported $75 million from Avengers: Endgame alone, a blockbuster which has already managed to crush many records with a global haul of over $2.5 billion, you have to imagine OnePlus definitely broke the bank with this move.

In overall cool factor too, there is no beating the OnePlus 7 Pro once again thanks to the pop-up selfie camera at the front. OnePlus has simply said "coming soon" for their date of arrival.

Additionally, OnePlus is also showcasing its phone across its OnePlus Experience stores in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Ahmedabad, and Hyderabad.

To give you an example of the price disparity, you can buy the base OnePlus 7 and a Realme 3 Pro together and still be left with INR 2,000.

OnePlus has teamed up with Reliance Jio to offer OnePlus 7 Pro users benefits worth Rs 9,300, of which, Rs 5,400 will be provided in the form of cashback vouchers in the MyJio app, while the remaining Rs 3,900 will be awarded in the form of partner benefits. The latter gets the same Snapdragon 855 SoC as well as the same RAM and storage capacity. The secondary camera features a 16MP and a third 8MP sensor has a telephoto lens capable of 3x optical zoom. The OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by a 4,000mAh battery with support for 30W Warp Charge fast charge tech. In contrast, the OnePlus 7 gets a smaller panel with a lower resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The display has a waterdrop notch housing a 16MP camera. It is clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage.
