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.
