The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro: the rumors so far
Leaked images of the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro
Over the past few weeks, lots of unconfirmed details about the OnePlus 7T and 7T have surfaced. It is claimed that both phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 855+ chip – the fastest smartphone SoC Qualcomm has to offer right now, with an emphasized boost in graphics performance.
While the 7T Pro is expected to look much like the OnePlus 7
Pro, pop-up camera and all, the OnePlus 7T could sport a circular camera design at the back. The 7T may also gain a third camera at the back – a 12MP telephoto snapper with 2x zoom abilities.
Interestingly, rumors suggest that OnePlus is partnering with McLaren once again to release a special edition device for its biggest fans. The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition appears to be a variant of the phone sporting a carbon fiber back design coupled with bright orange accents. No less importantly, the variant of the phone may support 5G and could launch in the US as a Verizon exclusive.
