T-Mobile brings the OnePlus 7 Pro back from the dead ahead of the OnePlus 8 announcement

T-Mobile brings the OnePlus 7 Pro back from the dead ahead of the OnePlus 8 announcement
The OnePlus 7 Pro was only the company's second smartphone to be officially carried by T-Mobile in the US, but despite the beautiful handset's glowing reviews, this was discontinued by Magenta just four months or so after making its commercial debut.

What might arguably be even weirder than T-Mo's decision to halt OnePlus 7 Pro sales in the first place ahead of releasing the slightly less glamorous OnePlus 7T is that the Snapdragon 855 powerhouse with a pop-up selfie camera in tow has made a discreet comeback at the nation's third-largest wireless service provider, as noticed on Reddit.

Yes, you can (randomly) buy a Nebula Blue or Mirror Grey OnePlus 7 Pro from T-Mobile once again in exchange for $699.99. That's not exactly affordable by the brand's (old) standards, but it's definitely worth pointing out that you're looking at a 256GB storage configuration here also packing a generous 8 gigs of memory.

While the same variant is still available at a full 150 bucks less directly from the website of the China-based manufacturer, actually receiving the deeply discounted device after placing your order might not prove an easy task, as waiting times are currently listed at 2 months. So, yeah, if you don't have a problem spending 700 bucks outright or $29.17 a month for two years, T-Mobile's official e-store is a pretty safe bet for a quick delivery likely to take place by the end of the week.

The $699.99 OnePlus 7 Pro is essentially sandwiched between the $499.99 OnePlus 7T and $899.99 7T Pro 5G McLaren in T-Mobile's portfolio of robust iPhone and high-end Samsung Galaxy alternatives. The only problem is the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are almost certainly right around the corner, and at least one of the two fast-approaching devices is pretty much guaranteed to hit Magenta, possibly forcing the 7 Pro out of the lineup for good.

Until that happens, you'll want to remember this bad boy earned rave reviews for everything from its 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display with a massive diagonal of 6.67 inches, top-shelf resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels, and virtually no bezel (or cutout) to the overall performance, blazing fast charging capabilities, excellent triple rear-facing camera setup, more than respectable battery life, and even surprisingly decent in-display fingerprint sensor.
