OnePlus showed off official renders of the upcoming 7T detailing the radiant matte back panel and the triple-camera setup in a circular housing. While only the back of the phone was shown in renders, design sketches seem to indicate that the OnePlus 7T will continue to sport a tear-drop shaped notch.

OnePlus is all set to announce the 7T and 7T Pro later this month, and the company is implementing a few design changes for this late-year refresh. While it is not uncommon to see OEMs release official renders of their upcoming products, OnePlus is perhaps doing this for the first time. 

The upcoming 7T will have a circular camera housing with three cameras in tow. We've actually been expecting this design for a while now, and it is nice to see that OnePlus has officially confirmed the same. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that the circular housing helps in lending symmetry for the cameras from any orientation and ably contrasts the phone's straight line design typical of a rectangular form factor. The design sketches show that the OnePlus 7's notch will continue to be retained. Lau also said that the new iteration will have smooth matte surface with a "brilliant metallic radiance". 

Though not official, we do have an idea of what to expect when it comes to the specifications of the OnePlus 7T. Expect to see a Snapdragon 855+, 8 GB of RAM, a 90 Hz FHD+ AMOLED display, a 48 MP triple-camera setup, and a 3,800 mAh battery. 

The OnePlus 7T Pro, on the other hand, looks to offer little differentiation from the 7T with the exception of a QHD+ display, a pop-up selfie camera, 3x zoom, and a larger 4,085 mAh battery. The 7T Pro is also expected to retain the same design language as the current OnePlus 7 Pro. We will get to know more about OnePlus's latest offerings on September 26, so stay tuned.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
