Following the announcement of the OnePlus 7T last month, OnePlus announces a mid-cycle upgrade to its slightly higher-end OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone and launches the OnePlus 7T Pro. For both this mid-cycle "T" release and the original release six months ago, the story is the same: Models 7 and 7T have a camera lens and a flat display, while the 7 Pro and 7T Pro models have a motorized pop Have camera and a display that curves along the edges.
OnePlus has played strange games with its device availability over the last two generations. When the company was launched in January, the first camera, OnePlus 7, came to Europe and the pop-up OnePlus 7 Pro camera to the United States. In this version, OnePlus does not bring the OnePlus 7T Pro to the US.
So, what's new? As with the transition from OnePlus 7 to OnePlus 7T: not much. The main motive for this release seems to be an upgrade from Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 to the slightly faster Snapdragon 855+. The 855+ is the same chip as before, only clocked a bit higher. The CPU shifts from 2.84 GHz to 2.96 GHz, and the GPU receives a larger increase from 585 MHz to about 673 MHz. Expect an overall 4% faster CPU and a 15% faster GPU.
Also, the baseline specification has been updated. The OnePlus 7 Pro started with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory with options for more, but the 7T Pro has a main specification: 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Like the 7T, you get a rechargeable battery that charges 23% faster with a whopping 2% more battery than the 7 Pro: 4085 mAh compared to 4000 mAh. Another special option is a OnePlus 7T Pro "McLaren Edition" with 12GB of RAM and a black and orange color scheme.
The cameras are mostly the same as the 7 Pro: There's an 8 megapixel main camera, an 8MP 3x telephoto and a 16MP wide-angle rear view. The only change is the addition of OnePlus 7T macro mode, which lets you focus on objects just 2.5 cm apart. Apart from that, the phone looks identical to the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The launch of OnePlus 7T Pro took place in London, so for the time being we only have data and prices for the UK. The base model will ship on October 17 for £ 699 and the McLaren Edition with 12GB of RAM on November 5 for £ 799.
