Another phone that has had pretty much everything leaked about it way ahead of the launch date. A new leak claims to reveal everything there is to know about the new OnePlus 7T models which are expected to launch on the 10th of October 2019 and will be available in the market for purchase from the 15th of October 2019.

Most of the specification matches up to the previous OnePlus 7T leaks.

The biggest takeaway from the upgrades is just how similar the two models will now be, the Pro still has plenty of advantages, but dependent on pricing, the OP7T could be the better buy.

Differences

Clearly there are some important differences, but the gap has narrowed significantly.

The big selling point of the OnePlus 7 Pro was the 90hz screen, while the new OnePlus 7T won't compete with the resolution, it now also has that refresh rate, and going being 400PPI doesn't make a huge difference for many users.

The cheaper model will retain the notch, which is perhaps the biggest reason not to get it, as the untinterupted display of the original OnePlus 7 Pro was spectacular. The OP7T is a little smalelr too.

They will both continue to have the same chipset, now upgraded to the new Snapdragon 855+. Both will have a base RAM of 8GB, I assume there will still be a 12GB model for the Pro. The Pro will now start at 256GB storage whereas the cheaper model will still have a 128GB option (a lesson the iPhone needs to learn).

The camera spec has changed a little too, another area that makes a significant difference between the two models. The original OP7 has just one 48MP camera and a TOF sensor. This is now updated to three cameras with the same 48MP lens, a 12MP 2.2x telephoto and 16MP ultra-wide.

The OP7T Pro retains the same layout, with the difference being that the OP7T Pro has a 3x zoom lens but at 8MP.

The battery stays the same with the OP7T but the 7T Pro gets a small bump to 4085mAh.

So, that still leaves a fair amount of differences, but as you can see the OP7T has had a massive upgrade, while the Pro has had a much smaller one relatively.

Price

There is no word on price yet, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Currently the OP7 Pro is £699 for the 8GB model and £499 for the OnePlus 7.

Last year the OnePlus 6T was £499 at launch and the OnePlus 6 was £469, so you can expect a price increase.

Due to the changes in specification, it is possible that the £200 price difference between the two models may slim down a bit.
