The OnePlus 7T is now official — 90 Hz screen and Snapdragon 855 Plus offer an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 7
After several teases — both official and unofficial — the OnePlus 7T is finally here. The OnePlus 7T is, for all intents and purposes, a OnePlus 7 Pro with minor upgrades to the SoC and the design aesthetics and is priced much lower than the latter.
As was shown-off by OnePlus recently, the 7T now sports a new design that features a circular camera housing for the triple camera setup and new Frosted Silver and Glacier Blue color options in a 4th generation matte-frosted glass material.
The main USP of the 7 Pro was the 90 Hz HDR display. OnePlus has now brought this feature to the 7T as well. The OnePlus 7T now features a 1000-nit 90 Hz AMOLED panel as well that is HDR10+ certified albeit at FHD+ resolution with a tear drop-shaped notch. Well, something had to be different from the OnePlus 7 Pro so the regular 7T will not be getting the QHD+ resolution and notch-less viewing experience. OnePlus said a combination of software and hardware tweaks that it calls the "Smooth Formula" has gone into creating this display, which has a 40 ms response rate.
The camera system receives an upgrade as well — the 7T features a 48 MP primary sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS, a 16 MP ultra-wide 117-degree wide-angle lens, and a 2x zoom lens. A few changes on the software side of things include a new Macro mode with a focus distance of 2.5 cm and the ability to shoot videos interchangeably between all three lens similar to the iPhone 11 Pro.
The OnePlus 7T also sees a slight upgrade to the innards — we now get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus under the hood that should do its part in offering better single-core performance for gaming. The phone also features UFS 3.0 storage and comes in 8 GB/128 GB and 8 GB/256 GB variants. Unlike the OnePlus 7 Pro, there is no 12 GB RAM version yet, and the 256 GB storage option is only available in the Glacier Blue variant at the moment.
Other features include stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos audio enhancements, a 23% faster Warp Charge 30T, and an updated OxygenOS based on Android 10 that OnePlus says has undergone over 370 optimizations.
The 8 GB/128 GB variant of the OnePlus 7T will retail for ₹37,999 (US$536) while the 8 GB/256 GB one will set you back by ₹39,999 (US$564) (OnePlus 7 Dual SIM Unlocked on sale now at Amazon). The OnePlus 7T will go on sale both online and offline across amazon.in, oneplus.in, and the various new pop-up stores across India starting from September 27, 2 PM IST.
