The OnePlus 7 launch date has been confirmed as May 14, after the Chinese firm sent out invites to the event.

It’s a week before Honor launches the Honor 20 – OnePlus has just leapt ahead of the competition in terms of release dates.

OnePlus is hosting three launch events, in London, New York and Bangalore, with the OnePlus 7 launching simultaneously in each.

As it did for the OnePlus 6 launch, it has once again extended the invitation to the public, but you’ll need to pay for a ticket if you fancy attending.

Early tickets for the event can be bought at £16 / $20 until April 15 (so the discount lasts 48 hours), but OnePlus hasn’t said how much the tickets will be after that.

Early bird goes the launch

Attending the event lets you watch the official unveiling of the phones – the OnePlus 7 and premium OnePlus 7 Pro, as well as get hands-on with them after the show, so attendees will be among the first in the world to do so.

If you can’t make the event, or don’t want to pay money to try out a phone when you could just test it out in stores for free once it’s out, OnePlus will also be live streaming the event on YouTube and social media platforms.

There will be a fourth event in Beijing in China on May 16, two days after the other launch parties – OnePlus is following Honor’s intriguing precedent of being a Chinese company that launches some of its product in the UK and US before it does in China.

TechRadar will be attending the OnePlus 7 launch events worldwide and reporting live, so check back on May 14 for all our expert opinion as well as news and reviews for the products.
