A leaked photo of an internal meeting held at OnePlus was found online. A very popular leakster on Twitter, Ishan Aggarwal tweeted the image as seen below.
EXCLUSIVE! Here's your first look at an upcoming OnePlus Device I don't know much about. This image shows the device in prototype/designing stage and it is not final but this is probably how the device may end up looking. That's Pete (CEO of OP) in the img and the device itself. pic.twitter.com/Yau9EsgSDy

The image shows us CEO Pete Lau using a device never seen before which raises some questions. Now, everyone is assuming it to be the OnePlus 7 or the unnamed 5G phone which was going to be launched in Q1 2019 as said by OnePlus a few weeks ago.
The image shows us a presentation of the design of a phone being shown with a red back and to the right of the frame, Pete is sitting heads down concentrating on the what might be OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 5G.
As for the red phone on the slides, the device seems to be a similar prototype of a Motorola device seen earlier. The device comes with what looks like a circular camera module which would be a new design by the company.
According to reports, the upcoming device from OnePlus will most likely come with Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with X50 modem, although this is the case with the 5G device, for the OnePlus 7, the modem will be a 4G X24.
Since Lenovo also announced their Z5 Pro GT which will be coming with Snapdragon 855 SoC as well, it might be interesting to see who captures the most amount of the market.
