The latest confirmed tidbit is hardly surprising on the heels of the company's Android 10 rollout for the OP7 and 7 Pro kicked off just a few days ago, although it's still nice to be reminded of yet another thing that makes OnePlus a true "flagship killer." Yup, the 7T (and presumably the 7T Pro as well) will come with the newest version of the world's most popular operating system preloaded, joining a very small group of Android 10-running phones available right now.
Of course, the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro are expected to actually start shipping several weeks after their official announcement later this week, but we're unlikely to see many existing handsets updated or new ones released with Android 10 until then. Technically, Huawei already managed to beat OnePlus to the punch by unveiling the EMUI 10-based Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, but without access to Google apps and services, that doesn't really count.
Basically, that leaves the OnePlus 7T duo ready to jump on a bandwagon currently carrying the OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, Essential Phone, and all three Google Pixel generations. Speaking of, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are obviously set to run the latest OS build out the box as well, but their formal announcement and commercial launch are still pretty distant. And speaking of boxes, you should also know the OnePlus 7T will be shipped in some snazzy new retail packaging marking a "return to the OnePlus One's visual design."
