OnePlus went super premium with its latest flagship phone: the OnePlus 7 Pro. With all the latest tech packed into one device, OnePlus is not aiming to become a flagship killer anymore. The company’s new goal is to become one of the big names in the premium segment.

Right off the bat, the OnePlus 7 Pro is not your usual OnePlus phone with just the high-end essentials. The “Pro” in its name is more than just extra memory or storage.

First, it has the “most advanced smartphone display” featuring a 6.67-inch curved Fluid AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. On top of that, the screen also supports both HDR10 and HDR10+ standard.

With all these screen technologies, the OnePlus 7 Pro is able to earn DisplayMate’s highest A+ rating. Additionally, the phone sports a stereo dual-speaker system tuned by Dolby with an amplifier for better sound quality.

Under the hood, the OnePlus 7 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, a must-have among flagship phones this 2019. What will set the OnePlus 7 Pro apart is its memory option of up to 12GB, which is more than enough to run even a desktop PC smoothly. It also has liquid cooling to keep the phone’s temperature in check.

A first for OnePlus is the triple camera system on the back of the phone. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a main 48-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and OIS, and a 16-megapixel ultra wide-angle shooter. These cameras are aided by a three-pronged autofocus system like PDAF, CAF, and Laser to ensure it knows where to focus even in low light.

As for taking selfies, OnePlus copied from the textbooks of OPPO and Vivo. Using a motorized pop-up module, OnePlus is able to hide a 20-megapixel f/2.0 camera. This means the phone has no notch that takes away precious pixels in the display.

If you’re particular about a phone’s DxOMark score, you’ll be glad to know that the OnePlus 7 is able to get a total score of 111. It’s just a point shy of Huawei’s P30 Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G.

The phone’s hardware draws power from a massive 4000mAh battery. Not only that, but it also has the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition’s Warp Charge 30 which will fill up the OnePlus 7 Pro’s battery up to almost half in just 20 minutes.

On the software side of things, an updated Oxygen OS (still based on Android 9 Pie) with extra features like a screen recorder and Zen Mode, Oxygen OS’ take on the Do Not Disturb Mode, runs out of the box. The phone has improved haptic vibration as well with multiple levels of feedback making it ideal for gaming, and a faster in-display fingerprint scanner.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company’s most premium phone to date and most expensive, too. The phone will be available on May 17 in Almond, Nebula Blue, and Mirror Gray colors through OnePlus.com starting at US$ 669 for the 6GB+128GB variant. The 8GB+256GB model will go for US$ 699, while the top-dog 12GB+256GB version is at US$ 749.

NieR Replicant

Square Enix came into Tokyo Game Show 2020 with a big announcement in mind. Even though it was an online show, the developers behind Final Fantasy and Marvel’s Avengers have something brewing up for the year. This time, they’ve decided to focus on a market-exclusive title —  NieR Replicant — ready for a more worldwide stage.

To kickoff the Tokyo Game Show, they’ve announced the arrival of NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. If you haven’t heard of NieR Replicant before, that’s totally reasonable because this was a Japan-exclusive release. Essentially, Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 is a remaster of the original game released in 2010 for Japanese players.

NieR Replicant is the most anticipated sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG, NieR Automata. This prequel delves into a darker world that sees you going on a quest for a cure. Also, joining you in this quest is Grimoire Weiss in search for the “Sealed Verses.” For Automata players, you may be familiar with it as he appears as downloadable content for the game.

The prequel will be available on April 22, 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, its PC release on Steam will be on April 24, 2021.
