Donald Trump Jr. has reached an agreement with the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee for the panel’s senators to interview him in mid-June, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.
OnePlus today unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro, which offers an impressive feature set at a price that beats out flagship devices from other smartphone manufacturers, including Apple.
We were able to go hands-on with the OnePlus 7 Pro at the OnePlus event this morning, so we thought we’d give MacRumors readers a look at the bezel-free display and pop-up camera, both of which are great smartphone features.
It’s a feature that’s unique to the OnePlus device, and it allows for an edge-to-edge top-to-bottom bezel-free display without sacrificing the selfie camera. The little pop out camera seems rather durable, though we’ll have to see how it holds up over time.
OnePlus uploaded a video demonstrating the camera opening and closing more than 300,000 times (it’s 12 hours long!) and another video that demonstrated it lifting up a rock, so it certainly seems to be able to hold up to abuse.
Though it’s got a 6.67-inch display, the OnePlus 7 Pro is similar in size to the iPhone XS Max, just because there’s no bezels to deal with. The display does curve around the edges of the device, which some may not like, but it looks undeniably good.
OnePlus calls the display a “Fluid AMOLED” display because it has a 90Hz refresh rate, a concept similar to the 120Hz refresh rate on the iPad Pro models. That refresh rate is more noticeable on a smaller device, and scrolling through the OS is super smooth.
Aside from the standout display and the unique pop-up front-facing camera, the OnePlus 7 Pro has some pretty decent specs. There’s a triple-lens camera with telephoto, wide-angle, and ultra wide-angle lenses, an under-display fingerprint sensor, a Snapdragon 855 chip, up to 12GB RAM, up to 256GB storage, a 4,000mAh battery, and a fast charging feature.
On the downside, the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t offer wireless charging like many other smartphones on the market, nor does it have an Ingress Protection rating for water resistance. And of course there’s one other major downside for Apple fans — it runs Android.
OnePlus is charging more for this year’s flagship OnePlus smartphone, and the 7 Pro is priced starting at $669. That’s still quite a bit cheaper than the iPhone XS and flagship smartphones from other companies like Samsung, even though it’s using some pretty high-end hardware.
What do you think of the OnePlus 7 Pro and the pop-up selfie cam? Let us know in the comments. We’ll be taking a closer look at the OnePlus 7 Pro and comparing it to the iPhone XS Max in a future video, so keep an eye out for that.

Stocks had their best trading day in a while on Tuesday as investors took a break from selling to assess the actual effects of the trade war with China.
Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 gained back some of their losses with the DJIA climbing 207.06 points to close at 25,532.05 and the S&P hitting 2,834.41, up 0.8%. The Nasdaq Composite Index wrapped its trading day at 7,734.49.
While some investors are calling the rally more of a dead cat bounce than something that markets can sustain, other investors point out that the fundamentals behind U.S. investing haven’t changed, even as costs are set to rise.
Indeed, economists cited by The New York Times think the tariffs’ gross domestic product in the U.S. will only decline by 0.3 percentage points at most over the long term.
Still, that assessment doesn’t take into account the impact on consumer wallets and consumer confidence should a prolonged trade war and rising prices force everyday Americans to rethink their spending habits.
Even the modest gains from today’s trading don’t recoup all of the losses the markets have suffered since the new round of tit for tat tariffs began when the U.S. walked away from negotiations and imposed new duties on goods.
