DxOMark has now put the OnePlus 7T Pro through its camera test. The phone recorded the exact same overall score as the older OnePlus 7 Pro. That makes sense, of course, seeing as both phones feature essentially the same SoC and identical camera hardware. If cameras are your major concern, there's no point buying the OnePlus 7T Pro over the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Ricci Rox,

Months after it was released, DxOMark has finally reviewed the OnePlus 7T Pro. While the phone performs reasonably well, the major takeaway from DxOMark's test is that the newer phone offers no notable improvement over the OnePlus 7 Pro that was launched about six months prior.

The OnePlus 7T Pro recorded an overall score of 114, the same as the OnePlus 7 Pro.  Both phones sport the exact same camera hardware, so that makes sense, although one would expect the 7T Pro to have a slight advantage due to newer software. Newer isn't necessarily better, it would seem.

Both phones share a photo score of 122, although there are a few variances—the 7 Pro doing a bit better with noise, and the 7T Pro being a tad better in the wide-angle and night sub-categories. The OnePlus 7 Pro surprisingly earned a better video score (98) versus the 7T Pro (96).

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 in the first half of 2019. The OnePlus 7 wasn't even available in the US, with the company choosing to drop prices for the OnePlus 6T instead. The OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T were launched later in the year, but with roles reversed. DxOMark's review puts some more emphasis on OnePlus's decision—the OnePlus 7T Pro just doesn't offer enough over the OnePlus 7 Pro.
