From 5K renders, full view videos, a ton of spec sheets, taglines to the CEO tweeting about a "new device," OnePlus has been the center of attention lately. Maybe it's because they are set to unveil something innovative this May, or it's just the way the Chinese-based Smartphone maker wants to be remembered. Either way, OnePlus has certainly upped the ante of the playing field when it comes to speculations.

As days move forward to OnePlus' May 14 target date, another rumor was discovered by Ishan Agarwal. He took to Twitter and detailed about the OnePlus 7 Pro's supposed launch event on the date as mentioned above, as well as some of the upcoming Smartphone's specifications. Agarwal likewise mentioned that New York, United Kingdom, and Bangalore might "simultaneously" launch the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Coring on the timeline leaks and rumors have been telling us since the news broke out, BGR confirmed that alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro, the company is also slated to unveil the standard version of the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The latter will be OnePlus' first 5G capable Smartphone in the market and should tug the likes of Samsung to share a piece of the spotlight.

As previously reported, the base model of the OnePlus 7 will look a lot like its predecessor, the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 7, however, will carry the most of the specs found on the OnePlus 7 Pro, albeit the "all-screen design" and triple rear-camera setup. BGR added that the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G would incorporate the OnePlus 4G Pro's aesthetics plus a few extra digits on its price tag.

Forbes meanwhile confirmed the news regarding the OnePlus 7 Pro by posting several cases made by Olixar for the new Smartphone. Ewan Spence said that through cut-outs, cases and renders of the device "back up previous unconfirmed changes" on the OnePlus 7 Pro, including the triple-lens camera and the pop-up front-facing snapper.

The reported leak also pointed to a new OnePlus 7 Pro revelation. BGR echoed Agarwal's claim that the upcoming handset will feature a QHD+ display panel with a "90Hz refresh rate." The website added that this feature is typically reserved for gaming-centric Android phones. Moreover, the OnePlus 7 Pro will sport USB 3.1 connectivity and a 4,000mAh battery that will support the company's "Warp Charge =."

With that said, there's a big chance that Smartphone users will have to give the OnePlus 7 Pro a second look this May. There's no official word on its pricing, but OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau "is trying" to keep their first 5G Smartphone to under $1,000.
