The OnePlus 7T specification has already been leaked in the past, but the phone has now gone official with the launch in India.

You will have to wait for OnePlus 7T Pro new as this will not be revealed until he 10th October where an event is being held in London.

As expected OnePlus has provided an impressive upgrade for the OnePlus 7T giving most of the specs the Pro model has. This leaves me to question, what can they do to upgrade the Pro?

As OnePlus already posted on social media and its community forum, the 7T now gets a 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display, similar to that of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The full HD+ resolution 6.55-inch display has HDR10+ support, plus a 20:9 aspect ratio that makes it a little taller than the current OnePlus 7 (which had a 6.4-inch screen).

Unlike the Pro, there is still a notch, a small trade-off for the price, however, the notch is now 31.46% smaller than the one on the 7.

As usual, OnePlus continue to be one of the quickest at unlocking your phone and they have got the in-display reader speed down to 0.31 seconds.

Chipset, RAM and Storage

The chipset has seen a bump up to the latest Snapdragon 855+ SoC by Qualcomm, this offers a moderate CPU improvement, but around a 15% increase in GPU performance.

There is only one configuration and that is 8GB of RAM and 128GB UFS 3.0 storage which I think is a sweet spot for usable storage and price.


Another massive upgrade is the camera. It doesn’t quite match the Pro counterpart but it is close enough.

The primary camera is a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor, 26mm equivalent, with a seven-element lens and f/1.6 aperture. There’s optical image stabilisation included. Pixel binning reduces the overall resolution to 12-megapixels.

Second up is a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera (117 degrees, 70mm equivalent) with a six-element lens and f/2.2 aperture. Stabilisation comes in the form of Electronic Image Stablisation (EIS).

Finally comes a 12-megapixel 2x lossless zoom, 51mm equivalent, with a six-element lens and f/2.2 aperture. There’s no OIS here.

Upfront is a f/2.0 electronically assisted 16-megapixel camera which can also capture video at 1080p 30 frames-per-second.


There’s a 3,800mAh battery and 23% faster charging from the Warp Charge 30T charger. You get 0-50% charge in 20 minutes, 0-70% in 30 minutes and 0-100% in one hour.

Android 10

This will be the first phone to feature Android 10 out of the box, it will come with Oxygen OS 10 has 370 optimisations to improve the user experience.

The phone also has a smart ambient display that displays info based on what you do regularly.


OnePlus have always been one of the best options on the market, offering a balance of performance and price.

UK pricing hasn’t been revealed yet but the T models normally go up around £50 compared the devices launched earlier in the year, so about £550.

With the OnePlus 7T you get almost everything the 7 Pro has but at a significant saving, I can see this being a superb phone, and quite possibly the phone I would choose over the OnePlus 7T Pro – though we will have to wait to see what they can pull out of the bag for that one.
