As expected, OnePlus has unveiled the OnePlus 7T at a special media event, a solid upgrade over the OnePlus 7 phone it launched back in May. For those who don’t want to spend big on the OnePlus 7 Pro, the mid-range option is now even more compelling.
The processor gets bumped up from the Snapdragon 855 to the Snapdragon 855 Plus – a slight performance and efficiency upgrade – while the maximum available RAM is 8 GB as before. There’s a bigger screen here as well: 6.55 inches (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) instead of 6.41 inches (1,080 x 2,340 pixels).Meanwhile the screen refresh rate has been increased from 60 Hz to 90 Hz, which should mean smoother scrolling and gaming. There’s still a teardrop notch up at the top of the screen, housing the front-facing 16 MP camera.
OnePlus has improved the rear-facing camera as well, with the OnePlus 7T rocking a triple-lens 48 MP + 16 MP + 12 MP snapper, an upgrade on the dual-lens model on the original OnePlus 7. It makes the phone much closer to the Pro model in terms of its photo and video-taking capabilities.
