With the OnePlus 7T launching next month, T-Mobile discontinues the OnePlus 7 Pro
Before the announcement of the brand new OnePlus 7T, T-Mobile was selling two OnePlus smartphones: OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 6T. Now, however, the OnePlus 7 Pro can no longer be bought from T-Mobile's website, and neither via the official T-Mobile app. We've contacted T-Mobile support and they've confirmed that the carrier "no longer has" the 7 Pro. We have yet to hear about the reason behind this.

It's interesting to see the OnePlus 7 Pro being discontinued by T-Mobile. Firstly because this is not an old device (it went on sale in May), and secondly because there are still more than two weeks before the newer 7T arrives at T-Mobile. Plus, the 7T is not a direct successor to the 7 Pro (this would the One Plus 7T Pro, which hasn't been announced yet), so it's not supposed to replace it.

When the OnePlus 7T goes on sale at T-Mobile next month, on October 18, it will cost less than the 7 Pro. More exactly, while the OnePlus 7 Pro was sold by T-Mobile for $699, the 7T will be priced at $599. Meanwhile, T-Mobile continues to sell the rather old OnePlus 6T (first released in November 2018), asking $500 for it.


The OnePlus 7T is cheaper than the 7 Pro because it's got a slightly smaller, lower-resolution display, and a less futuristic design. Moreover, the 7T that T-Mobile is getting ready to launch will have 128 GB of storage space (half the storage space of T-Mobile's 7 Pro). On the other hand, the OnePlus 7T comes with a newer and more powerful processor - Snapdragon 855 Plus vs. Snapdragon 855. You can see a full specs comparison between the two phones below. Do note that the OnePlus 7 Pro specs sheet mentions 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space because that's the base configuration of the unlocked model. T-Mobile only sold a model with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory.

P.S.: If you want to buy the OnePlus 7 Pro in the US, the OnePlus website is still selling it unlocked.

The 7T will probably sell better, anyway. It's a shame it doesn't have a microSD card slot, though.

I agree. A very wise move from T-Mobile. It's just common business since to see why T-Mobile did this. Cannibalization of sales is probably the biggest factor. The 7T is the next phone from OnePlus, so kind of is a successor.

Not a wise move by T-Mobile IMO, especially since the 7T is not the successor of the 7Pro. Im thinking T-Mobile probably thought that they would cannibalize sales of one or the other, and didn’t want to take the chance.

$500 dollars for last year's OnePlus 6T? WTH! Here in India the newer and superior OnePlus 7 is already discounted and selling at $400. 6T should be sold at $300 at this point.

What bad journalism is this 1st 7pro starts at 669$ which comes with 128gb storage the 700$ variant comes with double 256gb . 2nd if you compared the 700$ 7pro with 7t why did you say it has 6gb ram which is found in the 669$ not the 700$ one . So you give you readers bad info . Comparing the 700$ 7pro but listing the specs for the 669& variant . Get your facts straight dude then start writing articles .

Please get your facts straight about the OnePlus 7 Pro that T-Mobile was selling. It was a version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space priced at $699.99. There was no 6 GB / 128 GB model available at T-Mobile.

If it's 8gb ram how come you put it in your article as 6gb . Lol you prove me right

6 GB is only mentioned in the embedded specs sheet, which shows the base amount of RAM of the unlocked OnePlus 7 Pro, not that of the T-Mobile variant. The article clearly talks about the T-Mobile OnePlus 7 Pro. Our specs sheets usually don't include every variant that a device may or may not have and can't be personalized for each and every article. However, I will update the story to make everything clear. Thanks for the input.

Should've kept the 7pro and get rid of the 6t.

6T is still a great phone.

Agreed. The 7Pro is much better than the 6T.

I was waiting for someone else to say it, but, possibly T-Mobile is expecting the 7T Pro will be revealed October 10th and so they are starting the discontinuation of the 7 Pro?

I think that must be some mistake to discontinue the awesome 7 Pro only 6 months after it's release. It'll probably be available again soon. No real reason to get rid of it.

The main difference are the CPU and the GPU. Overclocked to higher speeds.

I bought the 7 Pro Plus and my daughter and son in-law were so impressed they went out and bought it too. It is a fantastic phone but my daughter's screen has cracked twice since she has had it. Other than that, love this phone. They shouldn't have dropped it so quickly.

So will T Mobile still rollout an Android 10 software update to existing 7 pro users?
