OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro – all the updates you need to know as of September

The OnePlus is one of the most anticipated flagships in the smartphone market. The series is expected to launch every fall, except for this year, seeing the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro have not arrived yet. It’s safe to say that the series will launch before the end of 2019.

This year will also be a different year of the “T” update model. This is the first time it will have a Pro model for this roster. Moreover, there is also news that a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is also coming.

To cut the chase, here’s every rumor you need to know about the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro:

Design

Like most series, the OnePlus 7T and 7T Plus will not be very different from its predecessors. Serial leaker Evan Blass shared sketches of a OnePlus phone with a round camera housing, just like the Huawei Mate 30. If this camera housing is indeed a hump as the original leak suggested, it could mean OnePlus will deliver a large primary sensor.

A render showing a McLaren model have also appeared online recently, a phone with a black and orange colorway. That and the 5G version, it looks like there’ll be several options available at launch. Unfortunately, as expected, the 5G variant will only be available in selected countries.

Features and Specifications

According to leaks, the OnePlus 7T will have the following specs and features:

  • Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset
  • 6.5-inch QHD+ OLED screen (90Hz refresh rate)
  • Flat display
  • A notch
  • 3,800mAh battery
  • Warp Charge 30T
  • 48MP+12MP+16MP rear camera trio (2X zoom)
  • Improved camera software
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 128GB of storage

The OnePlus 7T Pro will have the same specs except for the following advantages:

  • 4,080mAh battery
  • 6.67-inch QHD+ OLED display (90Hz refresh rate)
  • Curved display
  • 256GB of storage
  • 48MP+12MP+8MP rear camera trio (3X zoom)

The Warp Charge 30T is said to charge the phone from zero to 50 percent in just 20 minutes. 40 minutes total charging time from zero.

Both devices will be running on the latest Android 10.

Release Date and Pricing

Recently. OnePlus will announce the two phones will have a global launch on October 10 in London. However, there will be an initial local launch in India by September 26.

Sadly, we can’t expect the OnePlus 7T to be available in the U.S., Australia, and other regions where its predecessor was unavailable. Instead, those markets will likely only get the OnePlus 7T Pro.

As for the pricing, the price increase for the “T” series has been slow over the years since the 1st OnePlus release. The OnePlus 7 Pro only saw a more dramatic increase in pricing to $669, a $120 increase from the OnePlus 6T’s starting price. In that case, we shouldn’t see an equally dramatic price increase for the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro.

The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro is expected to start at around the same prices – 499 pounds (~$600) for the OnePlus 7T and $669 for the OnePlus 7T Pro.

That’s every rumor, leaks, and official announcements we were able to scavenge regarding the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro. Full details will be known come October 10.
