One of the most talked about feature of the OnePlus 7 Pro is the new 6.7in QHD + OLED HDR 10 + display. This phone has the first 90 Hz 1440 p OLED display in any phone. The display looks absolutely amazing with no notch and full video experience. The HDR 10 + display does help out with better contrasts and amazing video experience. The display is pretty bright and color accurate and has the curved edges just like the Samsung Galaxy series and Huawei flagships. The OnePlus 7 Pro has an optical in-display fingerprint scanner that is crazy fast as an improvement over the previous OnePlus devices. Overall the display is breathtakingly beautiful and feels fluidic and snappy at the same time.
The OnePlus 7 Pro has a triple camera setup on the back which is the first for any OnePlus device. There is a 48MP primary lens with f/1.6 aperture, a wide-angle lens and a 3x telephoto lens which has slightly more reach than the 2x zoom functionality on the iPhone and Samsung phones. The main 48MP sensor outputs 12MP images by default and you to enable the 48MP mode from the camera settings.
The front camera is a pop-up selfie unit and shoots nice detailed selfies. The front camera also has the potrait mode and it gives out pretty impressive results with great edge detection and color corrections.
OnePlus 7 Pro camera specifications

OnePlus 7 Pro also has a night mode option which is called as Nightscape and the initial pictures look promising with good detailed photos in pretty challenging scenarios.
OnePlus 7 Pro has an impressive 4000mAh battery but the 90Hz OLED display does take up a hefty chunk out of the battery. That means around 4 / 4.5 hrs of on-screen time which is not that good for such a large battery. The warp charge does make up for that with blazing fast charging and it charges to 60 percent in around 25 minutes which is cool. But with software updates the battery should perform better.
UFS 3.0 storage
