With their latest phone OnePlus is moving very much upmarket, more so in Canada than anywhere else. The starting price for the 7 Pro here will be exactly one loonie shy of a thousand bucks. Before taxes. To make matters worse, users in this country will have no official carrier to subsidize their purchase.

This isn't the case in other markets. I mentioned in yesterday's notes that in addition to the livestream from New York City there were simultaneous launch events in London and Bengaluru; audiences there were treated to a device we apparently won't be able to get here: the non-Pro OnePlus 7. It's the same size and comes with an FHD screen similar to last fall's OnePlus 6T, but adds an upgraded processor, better image sensor and stereo speakers.

Here's a more direct comparison:

Size and Weight
7 Pro: 162.6 × 75.9 × 8.8 mm / 206 g
7: 157.7 × 74.8 × 8.2 mm / 182 g

7 Pro: Almond / Mirror Grey / Nebula Blue
7: Mirror Grey / Red (China and India only)

LTE Bands
7 Pro:
1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/29/32/66 (FDD)
34/38/39/40/41 (TDD)
1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/18/19/20/26/28/29/32 (FDD)
34/38/39/40/41 (TDD)

OnePlus 7 Pro: starts at $999 CAD / $669 USD
OnePlus 7: starts at $32,999 INR / $632 CAD / $469 USD

Unless I'm mistaken the non-Pro 7 supports all non-freak bands (ie. Freedom and T-Mobile) of North American 4G. And unlike the Pro it's similarly sized to OnePlus phones that came before it. Maybe the non-Pro version will serve as the fall update for North America this year?
