iPhone 7 vs Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7: Which is faster?
Reputable leaker Evan Blass has revealed a picture of what looks to be the new OnePlus smartphone.
I had the same pic -- notice the lack of a watermark -- but didn't feel the need to dilute AP's scoop. Still laughing? pic.twitter.com/BTimqAADx3— Evan Blass (@evleaks) June 7, 2017
The image only reveals the top half of the device in midnight black colour with a dual camera setup on the back. The smartphone, however, retains traditional large bezels, not following the recent trend in high-end Android phones that have even smaller borders around their display.

Blass also highlighted some of the internal specs in a separate tweet which suggest the upcoming smartphone will be powered by 2.35GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM, putting it above all other Android smartphones in terms of performance.
