The latest flagship phone from OnePlus is now official, and it’s fair to say it’s an iterative update to the OnePlus 7 Pro that was released earlier in the year. The 7T Pro looks pretty much the same as its predecessor but comes with a few internal improvements such as the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, a slightly bigger 4,085mAh battery, and new macro photography mode. It’s also one of the first smartphones to ship with Android 10.
From the outside, only the new Haze Blue colorway gives the OnePlus 7T the appearance of being a new device, and even then, it’s pretty similar to the Nebula Blue of the previous model. Aside from the spec bumps already mentioned, the battery is said to charge 23% faster thanks to Warp Charge 30T, even though the power output and charger hardware are the same as before. After that, we’re looking at a spec sheet identical to the OnePlus 7, including the same cameras, display, and everything else. Check out the full list below.
|SoC||Snapdragon 855+ (with Adreno 640 GPU)|
|Storage||256 GB (UFS 3.0)|
|Display||6.67" 90Hz HDR+ (3120x1440) AMOLED|
|Battery||4,085mAh, Warp Charge 30T (5V/6A)|
|Primary rear camera||"48 MP" (binned down to 12MP) f/1.6 w/ OIS and EIS (Sony IMX586)|
|Other rear cameras||8MP f/2.4 OIS telephoto, 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle with new Macro Mode|
|Front camera||Pop-up 16 MP f/2.0 (Sony IMX471)|
|Software||Oxygen OS 10.0 (Android 10)|
|Connectivity||2.4/5GHz 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi (up to ac), Bluetooth 5.0 (w/ aptX, aptX HD, LDAC, and AAC), NFC|
|Dimensions||162.6 x 75.9 x 8.8mm, 206g|
|Misc||Alert slider, dual stereo speakers, "X-axis Haptic Vibration motor," double-sided dual SIM tray, USB 3.1, in-display fingerprint sensor|
It's worth noting that the wide-angle camera features a new motor to allow for the super macro mode, so that won't be coming to the 7 Pro. Unlike the previous generation, there’s only one RAM and storage configuration available in the 7T Pro, 8/256GB, and it will cost the same amount as the corresponding 7 Pro model — £699. That means it starts at £50 more than before, but the standard 7T features most of the same features and costs just £549 (8/128GB), so that’s the one you should go for if you want the most affordable new OnePlus phone. For anyone who feels the need to have 12GB of RAM, there’s also a McLaren edition in orange and black that costs £799.
The OnePlus 7T Pro won't be coming to the US like the 7T, but both will go on sale in Europe at 10:00 on October 17, while the McLaren edition 7T Pro won’t be available until November 5. In the UK, you’ll be able to get them from OnePlus.com, Amazon.co.uk, John Lewis, and Three UK. Pre-orders on Amazon start today.
