OnePlus 7T gets its specs leaked, and they're pretty awesome
For the first time in its relatively short history of five years, OnePlus unveiled both a "regular" and a Pro variant of its main flagship back in May. As tradition dictates, a "T" upgrade is now right around the corner, and it looks like we'll be getting two different high-end devices yet again.

While the OnePlus 7T Pro remains largely cloaked in mystery, its non-Pro sibling was essentially leaked in full last week by Steve H., aka @OnLeaks (who else?), sporting a triple rear camera setup like no other on the market today, as well as a teeny-tiny screen notch and razor-thin overall bezels. But the key specifications of the OnePlus 7T were not revealed, leaving us anticipating things like a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, up to 8GB RAM, and a Full HD+ display chiefly based on guesswork.

Well, there's no need to wonder and guess anymore, as noted teenage tech leaker Ishan Agarwal claims to have the scoop on a number of major OnePlus 7T features.

Substantially better than the OnePlus 7, extremely close to the 7 Pro


Unlike last fall's 6T, which was basically a refined OnePlus 6 with a larger screen, smaller notch, and bigger battery, the OnePlus 7T is shaping up as a radical upgrade of the non-Pro OP7. We're talking big improvements across the board, starting with the 90 Hz refresh rate of the 7 Pro's 3K 6.67-inch "Fluid AMOLED" display. As previously rumored, the screen size of the 7T will put the new phone smack-dab between the 7 and 7 Pro, at around 6.55 inches.

 

Then again, the OnePlus 7T is unlikely to catch up with the 7 Pro in terms of display resolution, although its exact pixel count remains somewhat unclear. 2K typically stands for a resolution of around 2560 x 1440 pixels, but technically, it could also designate a similar number to the 2340 x 1080 pixels produced by the regular OnePlus 7, which is more commonly referred to as a Full HD+ resolution. One thing seems crystal clear, and that is the 7T will not match the 3120 x 1440 pix res of the 7 Pro.

Believe it or not, though, the OnePlus 7T is expected to pack a faster Snapdragon 855+ SoC and pair both its 128 and 256GB storage configurations with a generous 8 gigs of RAM rather than just the latter variant. Its 3,800mAh battery capacity will represent a marginal increase from the 3,700mAh cell of the OP7, and the 48MP primary camera on the back might be joined by unspecified 16 and 12MP imaging sensors.

The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 16MP ultrawide shooter and an 8MP telephoto lens, so there's a good chance the latter will get an upgrade to 12 megapixels, likely making the regular OnePlus 7T the better cameraphone.

What about the OnePlus 7T Pro?


That, our friends, is the million-dollar question, but unfortunately, Ishan Agarwal is not ready to answer it yet. The leaker does have some inside information on the company's next ultra-high-end device, but while a 4,080mAh battery certainly sounds right, a standard Snapdragon 855 processor doesn't make a lot of sense when the non-Pro OnePlus 7T is tipped to pack the 855+ variety.


We'll just have to wait and see exactly how the OnePlus 7T Pro can stand out from both the 7 Pro and 7T. Could a quad camera arrangement be on the table? Perhaps an even higher-res screen with a gaming-friendly 120 Hz refresh rate? A sleeker design with even harder to notice bezels and an improved pop-up selfie snapper of some sort? We can certainly dare to dream of just about anything right now, but it shouldn't be long until reality hits us, as the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro are expected to be launched on September 26 around the world.

I hope it won't give them an excuse to bump the price too

OnePlus 7 is priced cheaper than all these past OnePlus phones - OP6T, 6, 5T and even 5. At least in China and India. So a marginal price increase will mean nothing. The spec upgrade is pretty substantial as per the leak.

Awesome except the size keeps getting bigger and bigger! They already have the 7T as the big phone so why not differentiate and make the 7 around 6.3ish?

True. Many people didn't get the 7 Pro because it was too big, not because it wasn't a good phone. They could have kept the 7T smaller and I wouldn't mind if they reduced the Pro's screen size to 6.55 inch instead of the current 6.67.

What do you need 5G already for? Other than PR talk of carriers and manufacturers, it will get useful in about 2 years from now.

Looking forward to it. Flat screen will be nice. Now only needs to be sold in North America. Hopefully, OP won't shaft us again and give us the OP7 instead of the 7T.

OnePlus T series is killing it. The 6T is still the best one imo and the 7.1 can only be better.

No pop up camera boohooo!!! And no notchles display naaa!!! So how 7T specs are better again? Ahh!!*"# ; I guess the name. I have OP7pro. The size is great for gamers. Add120 hz that would do it. A smaller size wouldn't be wise at all at this point. The competition know as u see the Galaxy note. But the game is about to change and if we want to keep up small screens won't stand with what is coming out now. Ej: The ROG 2 is among does strongest ones.
