The OnePlus 7 Pro

The OnePlus 3, OnePlus 5, and OnePlus 6 were all succeeded by superior versions approximately six months later. The company marketed these devices under its ‘T’ brand and now it seems as though the company is preparing some new T-branded smartphones. Do take everything below with a pinch of salt, though. 

The OnePlus 7T Pro is definitely happening, claims one tipster


According to Max J, the next OnePlus “T version is indeed a real thing.” The news should mean that both the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro will be announced later this year, although the possibility that only the OnePlus 7 Pro will be updated certainly exists. Details about what kind of changes are planned unfortunately weren’t shared today, although perhaps the biggest candidate for an upgrade is the processor. 

The original OnePlus 3T replaced the Snapdragon 820 with the speedier Snapdragon 821, but both the OnePlus 5T and 6T skipped similar improvements because Qualcomm didn’t have any newer processors available at the time of launch. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro both shipped with the Snapdragon 855 and the initial expectation was that both replacement models would inherit the same chip. In mid-July, however, Qualcomm introduced the gamer-focused Snapdragon 855 Plus and it certainly wouldn’t be surprising to see the OnePlus 7T series make use of it. 

The OnePlus 7T Pro might look a lot like its predecessor


Posted first on Chinese social network Weibo, new photos show what's claimed to be a prototype OnePlus 7T Pro unit. Like the flagship that it's set to replace, the new smartphone sports a large curved-edge display up front with no notch or camera cut out. However, it's unclear at this stage if any changes have been made to the size of bezels or the pop-out camera system because the device pictured has been fitted with a large protective case which partially or completely conceals certain design elements.
 
Per information provided by Max J, the device in question is actually an "old prototype." Newer prototypes with employee IDs on the screen reportedly exist, thus suggesting that some physical or external changes may have been made recently. But considering the flagship is largely expected to launch in early November, the OnePlus 7T Pro's design shouldn't be too far from final at this stage.

Although the rear of the OnePlus 7T Pro isn't pictured, the expectation is that it'll stick with the triple-camera setup debuted on the regular model. To remain competitive, though, some upgrades that'll improve the overall performance of the setup are to be expected. Accompanying this may also be an upgraded selfie camera.

Completing the setup may be extra storage configurations including a new 12/512GB option that'll better compete with the likes of the Galaxy Note 10, improved battery life, and Android 10 Q straight out of the box alongside the latest version of the Oxygen OS custom overlay. Another addition could include wireless charging which has been highly requested by customers for quite some time. But due to the slow speeds which OnePlus openly isn't a fan of, its inclusion is far from guaranteed.

OnePlus 7T Pro release date and pricing


Considering previous launch dates, it’s estimated that both the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro will be announced on Tuesday, October 29th and released on Friday, November 1st. 

In regards to costs, OnePlus typically increases its prices by $20-30 per generation. This means the OnePlus 7T Pro may start at $699 in the US while the standard OnePlus 7T could cost €579 over in Europe. However, because the OnePlus 7 Pro already represented a massive jump, OnePlus may try to avoid another increase in a bid to keep customers happy.

Underscreen front camera would be nice

OnePlus wont get it soon. At least 1 year after Oppo/Vivo.

You wouldn't want that even if they did offer it. There are some kinks that they have to still work out with them. I would let them work that technology out some more and maybe think about offering it next year or the year after.

They somehow need to make this phone smaller. Any phone note 9 which is already large, is way too big. The size of the 6t would be good.

That's what made me leave OnePlus after the 3T.

I will switch if it has Snapdragon 855 plus, 120Hz screen refresh, 12gb ram and 512 of storage. The smoothness on my OnePlus 7 pro is sooooo good. You miss it when it's off seriously. It's not antidotal either. Chrome browser runs at 90fps and it's what I do with my phone %90 of the time. So I really want the screen refresh bumped to 120Hz the most tho.

You should buy Asus ROG phone 2 when it's available.

ROG phone 2 is very thick & heavy, 1080p screen, thick bezels ... Not a very elegant phone, just an absolute powerhouse. The OnePlus 7 Pro is a beautiful design, the 7t will be similar

I would say ROG Phone 2 is very interesting phone. After using phones with and without bezels and with notches, I don’t care much about those intrusions. I am sucker for experience. I care for display sound battery haptic and anything I really care about in a phone is present in ROG phone.

So, the 7?

Design language is pretty much dead for the front of a device with minimal bezels anyway. Once the majority of phones start to go bezeless(or less as possible) phones will all look alike anyway.

It's sad to because I need bezels to hold the phone without making accidental presses. I use my OnePlus 7 pro with the free bumper case that comes with it. Which adds bezels and makes it easy to hold and use.

Yes the clear case is clutch. The phone actually feels quite slim without it. I don't have to many issues with accidental presses in case be it with or without the case though. I did slap a Dbrand skin for extra grip without the case.
