OnePlus is known for its outrageous marketing stunts so we didn't even blink when we saw that the company was building a piano out of its phones. The goal is to show off the 7T Pro's 90Hz display and fast processor, which were supposedly crucial in creating a smooth musical keyboard. Read More
Last year OnePlus and McLaren collaborated to make a limited special edition phone called the OnePlus 6T McLaren. The partnership must have been fruitful for both sides, as they have teamed up again for the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren edition which became available earlier this month. Initially thought not available in the US, the phone will be coming here after all but as an exclusive to T-Mobile with 5G support. Read More
Alongside the new OnePlus 7T Pro, the company also announced a special McLaren Edition of the device. Like last year's McLaren 6T, the special edition 7T is a design overhaul with extra RAM — 4GB more this time around.
The primary difference, of course, is the color. The McLaren Edition has orange streaks along the edges, with a black backplate. There’s a silvery wood grain-like design around the camera module, which retains the same vertical design as the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The black glass on the back is a fingerprint magnet, but thanks to the silver patterns underneath it, they are considerably less noticeable. Read More
After ripping up its playbook and launching a premium flagship phone with the 7 Pro this summer, OnePlus is back with an updated version, although this may be the company’s least meaningful upgrade yet. So minor are the differences between the 7T Pro and its predecessor, I find myself questioning its very existence. OnePlus “T” releases seldom offer more than iterative improvements, but even the small bump from the 6T to the 7 felt more relevant than this one. Read More
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. Read More
OnePlus plans to unveil the 7T Pro today at 8 am PST, but over at the United Arab Emirate's Amazon, the company is already listing its upcoming flagship smartphone as "in stock," with sales starting October 21. As expected and leaked earlier, the device looks almost identical to its predecessor, the 7 Pro, though its interior is slightly improved. Read More
We shared a 3D model of the OnePlus 7T's chassis in August and graduated to official renders in September, compliments of OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau. Today, on the eve of the launch event, we now have a detailed view of these devices in the flesh, and the results are remarkably similar to what we've already seen. Read More
After a few light leaks, OnePlus is almost ready to take the wraps off its new hardware, and it will do so on two separate dates in three different locations. First up will be an announcement on September 26 in North America (10:30 AM EDT) and India (7 PM IST), and then on October 10 at an event in London (4 PM BST), the European launch will take place.

The tick-tock cycle of OnePlus phones is a little deceptive. While the almost identical names might make it seem like differences are few, these “T” refreshes do sometimes bring bigger changes in design, as with the OnePlus 5T, or entirely new features, as in the case of the OnePlus 6T last year. Specs for OnePlus’ next flagship phone — likely the “OnePlus 7T Pro” if history holds — will probably be familiar, but that doesn’t mean there aren't any improvements the company can deliver, and I have some wants.

Today well-known leaker Evan Blass has published a trio of design sketches showing off the back of an unknown OnePlus phone featuring a large, round camera cutout, corroborating earlier leaks. We aren't sure precisely what device is pictured, since OnePlus does sound like it's planning more than one, but it could be the anticipated 7T or 7T Pro. Read More
