While OnePlus does make excellent phones for the budget price range, they often confuse the buyers. One can never have the latest version of the phone for more than 6 months or so. That is because the company renews its flagships twice a year. Adopting a similar approach to Apple, Oneplus’ regular model and the T variant exist but unlike Apple, these come out in the same year.
The Oneplus 7 and 7 Pro came out back in May of this year. Both these phones featured the latest specs with a higher, but still modest, price tag. Now, 3 months later, news and rumors have started to emanate about the upcoming 7T and 7T Pro. According to a recent Tweet, the latest Oneplus models may be coming out in the coming month.
7T and 7T Pro
According to a Tweet by Ishan Agarwal, the Tech Enthusiast confirms (in his own capacity), the specs of the upcoming device, particularly, the Oneplus 7T Pro (yes, the name is a mouthful). The phone is set to feature similar specs to its predecessor, as the same display, the same screen resolution (although he mentions a 2K display which may have been an error on his part) and size. Apart from that, the simple 7T model would feature a 3 camera setup, an upgrade from the 2 camera one found in the previous one. Both phones would be featuring a bigger battery, with 7T supporting a 3800mAh cell and 7T Pro featuring a 4080 mAh cell.
Indeed, #OnePlus7TPro looks similar to the 7 Pro. Most updates on software side, hardware remains same with SD855+ addition. Android 10, 4080mAH Battery. Warp Charge 30T (5V/6A, 0-50% in 20min, 0-100 in 65min) in both 7T Phones. A new Macro mode, HEVC, Hybrid Image Stabilization. pic.twitter.com/OfAXXHMCe1

According to the tweet, the camera on the 7T Pro is supposed to feature a new Macro mode, better image stabilization and HEVC format recording, similar to the one Apple uses. The most interesting feature would be the beefed-up snapdragon 855+ processor. An iteration of the simple 855, the 855+ is focused more at gaming and is made for such devices accordingly. Needless to say, it packs a lot of power.
While the phones do still exhibit incredible specs, these aren’t significant upgrades to the previous models. Apart from the 7T featuring a different camera setup on the back, both devices look pretty much the same as well. If one is already rocking a Oneplus 7 or 7 Pro, in my opinion, there is no need to upgrade. For people using older models, this may be the phone for you. According to the tweet, both devices are supposed to launch in India, on the 26th of September.
