OnePlus confirms triple rear cameras for OnePlus 7 Pro
We’ve seen numerous leaks regarding the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro, and the company itself has been dropping a few hints in recent days. Now, OnePlus has quietly revealed that the Pro model will offer a triple rear camera setup.
The company posted a short video to Twitter showing a phone with three rear cameras, complete with the “#OnePlus7Pro” hashtag. The cameras are in a vertically stacked arrangement, lining up with previously leaked renders.

We don’t know more camera details, but we’ve seen a variety of triple rear camera setups since they were introduced over a year ago. The HUAWEI P20 Pro offered a standard, telephoto, and monochrome arrangement, while the LG V40 ThinQ, the Mate 20 series, the P30 family, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 swapped out the monochrome shooter in favor of an ultra-wide camera.
We’ve also seen budget phones launch with a standard/ultra-wide/depth sensor combination, although the latter camera feels like a bit of a waste (ultra-wide and telephoto cameras are capable of depth sensing anyway). Hopefully OnePlus opts for the more versatile standard/ultra-wide/telephoto arrangement instead.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is certainly shaping up to be the most impressive OnePlus phone by a large margin. The device is tipped to offer a pop-up selfie camera, while CEO Pete Lau claims it’ll set a new benchmark for smartphone displays. Earlier leaks suggest the standard OnePlus 7 won’t be as impressive, but you can still expect two rear cameras and a Snapdragon 855 chipset.
