Every year OnePlus launches a “T” version of its flagship. Last year, it was the OnePlus 6T & this year, it’s the OnePlus 7T that launched with an improved display, better SOC, better cameras & more compared to the non-“T” counterpart. In India, the price starts at Rs 37,999 & goes up to Rs 39,999.
There isn’t anything to complain when it comes to the design of the phone. It has the Matte Frosted Glass back & an aluminium frame. There is no circular camera setup on the back & there is a noticeable camera bump. The button placement remains the same, i.e., power button & alert slider on the right & the volume rockers on the left.
Just like the OnePlus 7, there is no headphone jack as the phone only has a USB Type-C port on the bottom.
On the front, there is a display with Waterdrop notch on top & the size of the notch is smaller as compared to the one on OnePlus 7. Moreover, the bezels are narrower as well.
The display gets a huge upgrade since it is a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED panel with means the refresh rate is 90Hz like the OnePlus 7 Pro. The display is not curved like the 7 Pro & also it is a Full-HD+ (2400 x 1080 Pixels) panel instead of a Quad-HD+ display like on the OnePlus 7 Pro. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front & the rear.
Under the hood, the OnePlus 7T is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SOC which is based on the 7nm process & has a CPU clocked at up to 2.96GHz. There is 8GB LPDDR4X RAM & 128/256GB UFS 3.0 storage.
Coming to the cameras, there are now three on the rear & unlike the OnePlus 7 that had a secondary depth sensor, the OnePlus 7T has a secondary wide-angle camera & a third telephoto camera. So, there is a primary 48 Megapixel camera with Sony IMX 586 sensor, f/1.6 aperture & OIS, a secondary 12MP telephoto camera with 2X Optical Zoom & a third 16 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 117-degree FOV.
The rear camera can shoot 4K videos at 30/60fps & 960fps super slow motion video at 720p. It is worth mentioning that the 960fps slow motion feature will be avaialble after an OTA update.
On the front, there is a 16 Megapixel selfie camera with Sony IMX 471 sensor & f/2.0 aperture.
