The smartphone industry have since become wilder than ever. Whether it is the entire Huawei-Google fiasco, to Sony Mobile leaving Malaysia, it has become much more than just Apple versus Samsung (though even that we’ve seem to have a clear winner too). Amidst all this talk of smartphones and their operating systems, here comes another challenger with the OnePlus 7.
Now, OnePlus hasn’t made any steps in actually making a presence to most parts of the world, especially in South East Asia. They tried to establish themselves in the region by opening up in Indonesia, though that has gone down back in 2016. Hence why Malaysia isn’t getting OnePlus smartphones from the company themselves, with OnePlus 7 Pro being distributed by XianFeng Technology, and the non-Pro version being distributed through mobile phone retailer Mobile 2 Go.
The OnePlus 7 has a 6.41 inch Optic AMOLED Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Processor, comes with 48MP and 5MP rear cameras as well as a 16MP front camera, a 3700mAh Battery, and it runs on Android 9.0 (Android Pie). The phones run on their native Hydrogen OS, though Mobile 2 Go will convert these phones to Oxygen OS, which is the operating system that overseas versions of the OnePlus typically have.
The new OnePlus 7 is open for pre-orders right now through the Mobile 2 Go website. The phone is estimated to arrive on the 14th of June. It comes in 3 variants, that being the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage for MYR 2,199 in Mirror Grey colour, the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage for MYR 2,299 in Amber Red, and the higher spec 12GB RAM + 256GB storage for MYR 2,599 in Mirror Grey colouring. Mobile 2 Go will also offer a 1 year in-house warranty for each of the phones.
