While it may currently seem unusual for OnePlus to introduce such a big change for an incremental hardware upgrade, the news comes from the reliable Ishan Agarwal. The OnePlus 7T will apparently feature a larger display with a small notch than its predecessor that will also operate at up to 90 Hz. The next OnePlus flagship seems a curious upgrade from the OnePlus 7 for other reasons too according to leaked specs.

Ishan Agarwal, despite still being a teenager, has already established himself as one of the more reliable smartphone leakers on Twitter. He has been on the money in the past, but we are a little sceptical about his latest leak. Hence, please keep in mind that the information has not been verified by OnePlus or any other leaker.

According to Agarwal, the OnePlus 7T, which will premiere in India at the end of September before going on sale on October 15, will feature a 6.55-inch and 2K Super AMOLED panel. By contrast, the OnePlus 7 has a 6.41-inch Full HD display, so the OnePlus 7T would be a big upgrade over its predecessor on its screen alone. Unusually, OnePlus is apparently bringing a 90 Hz panel to the 7T, which it had previously reserved for the 7 Pro. Additionally, while the 7T will the 16 MP front-facing camera of its predecessor, it will feature a smaller waterdrop notch.

The other leaked specs are more believable, with Agarwal claiming that the 7T will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, the slightly overclocked version of the Snapdragon 855 found in the OnePlus 7. Additionally, OnePlus will equip the 7T with a 48 MP main rear-facing camera that it will complement with 16 MP and 10 MP secondary and tertiary sensors. The 7T will apparently support 10-second slow-motion shots at up to 960 FPS, ultra-wide-angle videos and a nightscape mode. Additionally, Agarwal claims that the 7T will come with a 3,800 mAh battery and 8 GB of RAM. There will also be a choice between 128 GB or 256 GB of storage, with OnePlus offering the device in two colours; Frosted Silver and Haze Blue.

Additionally, Agarwal says that the 7T Pro may retain the Snapdragon 855, which would seem an odd move considering that OnePlus is apparently bringing the Snapdragon 855+ to the 7T. This latter claim seems wide of the mark to us, but we suspect we will hear more the closer we get to the end of September.
