An earlier report has suggested that the rumored OnePlus 7T will be a substantial upgrade over its immediate predecessor. Now, a new leak hints that the same may not be true of the 7T Pro. Despite the possibility that it will get a Formula 1-themed special edition, it will look much the same as the original 2019 flagship.

OnePlus has made a habit of releasing late-year "T" variants of its initial flagships over the last few years. This strategy may give the OEM to soak-test certain features, such as waterdrop-notch screens or slightly improved processors, prior to the year to come. This year, it seems that these possible tactics are going to take a turn for the particularly unusual.

Recent rumors have suggested that the OnePlus 7T, and not the 7T Pro as one may expect, will be the next release to get the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. Furthermore, the OEM is projected to try out its first-ever circular rear camera module in this phone. So what does that leave for other variants at this point in the product cycle? Not much, apparently.

Despite sounding like a phone at which every premium-sounding suffix OnePlus adopts has been slung like spaghetti on a wall, it seems all the 7T Pro may get in terms of visible upgrades is the anticipated McLaren branding in a special edition. However, OnLeaks' latest renders for this phone suggest that it will have the exact same black carbon fiber-effect finish with a papaya-colored accent seen in last year's 6T McLaren Edition.

Otherwise, this phone (which may or may not be also called the "Senna") will have the same chassis as the existing OnePlus 7 Pro, as will the basic 7T Pro. This includes the pop-up module for the selfie camera that allows a given device's screen approach or surpass a 90% screen-to-body ratio.

All in all, it is hard to see what the new Pro can bring to the table later this year - presuming of course that OnePlus really plans to release it. Of course, there is one potentially vital answer to this question: the OEM could choose this phone in which to debut its version of Android 10.
