The OnePlus 7T Pro is a Slight Flagship Bump, But It Probably Won’t Come to the US

Following up on the recent unveiling of its OnePlus 7T, the smartphone maker held a separate event today where it revealed the impending launch of its new OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition.

The OnePlus 7T Pro packs a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 3120 x 1440 pixels, an aspect ratio of 20:9, and the obligatory 90Hz refresh rate—the same display you’ll find on the OnePlus 7 Pro. The display is borderless and this is aided by the use of OnePlus’ familiar pop-up front camera design.

The rear camera is comprised of three lenses in a linear configuration, as opposed to the circle on the 7T. In order: a 117-degree ultra-wide lens, the 48-megapixel main camera, and a 51mm telephoto lens with 3x zoom and optical image stabilization (versus 2x and no stabilization on the 7T). Other highlights include super video stabilization, a macro mode, and improved Nightscape mode.

Inside, you’ll find the same Snapdragon 855+ SoC that powers the non-Pro OnePlus 7T, although the Pro model steps the battery up from 3800mAh to 4085mAh and touts “Warp Charge 30T” technology which charges 23% faster than the 7 Pro, refilling the 7T Pro’s battery to 70% in only 30 minutes. The OnePlus 7T Pro is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage (no 128GB option).

Overall, the 7T Pro brings a mild spec boost over the company’s existing flagship smartphones. Many of the same announcements made during the unveiling of that phone a couple of weeks ago were also restated during today’s presentation, such as the inclusion of a new ultra-responsive haptic motor, the partnership with PUBG Mobile to optimize gameplay on OnePlus phones, and features such as HDR10+ support, Dolby Atmos speakers, and plenty more. One thing it doesn’t offer versus similar flagship phones is wireless charging.

There’s no word on US availability for the OnePlus 7T Pro, and it probably won’t reach the region at all, but the device is expected to ship in the UK, Europe, China, Hong Kong, and India. Pricing was revealed in British Pounds with the 7T Pro set at £549, with orders scheduled to ship starting October 17.
