Courtesy of numerous leaks and rumors and some custom-made renders, we now know what the upcoming OnePlus 7T will be like. However, techies have been more interested in the Pro moniker of the 7T as that variant shall pack the latest and the beefiest hardware. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming OnePlus 7T Pro.
Build & Design
Shortly after CAD renders of the OnePlus 7T were brought into the light, tipster Steve (@OnLeaks), in partnership with 91Mobiles, revealed 3D and 2D product renders of the 7T Pro. According to the renders, the phone shall look different from the regular 7T, especially from the rear. The phone still uses the glass-sandwich build with curved glasses at the front and the rear, like the 7T. On the front though, the 7T Pro gets rid of the waterdrop notch and gets a notch-less edge-to-edge display, same from the 7T. The selfie camera gets embedded into a pop-up mechanism, like the current 7 Pro. On the rear, the phone gets a vertically stacked three-camera setup, different from the 7T’s circular camera housing, as you can see in the renders. The phone is expected to be using Gorilla Glass 5 or 6 for the body. The power button and the notification slider remain on the right side of the phone while the volume rocker sits on the left. The bottom of the phone contains the USB-C port in the center between the loudspeaker and the primary mic. From the design front, the 7T Pro looks almost exactly like the 7 Pro. Colors include a regular black, a blue and a special carbon-fiber finish for the special McLaren edition.
Specs & Features
Beginning with the display, the 7T Pro is expectedly packing a 6.6″ 2K 90Hz OLED panel, the same one from the regular 7T. On the optics front, the phone is rumored to pack a 20MP wide-angle sensor on the pop-up module for selfies and a 48MP+16MP+8MP configuration at the rear. The rear camera setup also seemingly has a laser-assist for autofocus and a color-adjusted flash. Apart from that, the phone should be able to capture 4K DCI videos and 960fps slo-mo support alongside the brand’s dedicated night mode called Nightscape.
The phone is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855+ with 6 & 8 Gigs of RAM and 128 and 256 Gigs of UFS 3.0 storage. The limited McLaren edition of the phone is supposed to pack 12 Gigs of RAM alongside 512 Gigs of storage. Powering all of this shall be a 4100mAh cell with support for the company’s proprietary Dash Charge technology. We’ve also had recent inputs from sources saying the batteries on the new phones charge faster than the Note 10+. This tip came in shortly after we saw the Note 10+ beating the OnePlus 7 Pro in a full-charge test, despite the OnePlus device having the super-fast Warp Charge.
Launch & Pricing
The 7T Pro shall launch along with the 7T on the 26th of September in Delhi, India, followed by other regions like the US and China soon after. The special McLaren edition of the 7T Pro is also rumored to launch on the 26th itself. In India, the phones are said to go on sale from 1st week of October, though nothing is official. Pricing for the base variant is rumored to start at $50 more than the 7 Pro’s launch price.
We shall update this post as and when we have more details.
