It’s not been too long since premium smartphone brand OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro in markets across the globe. Unlike previous occasions where the company launched a standard OnePlus model early in the year and followed it up with the launch of a ‘T’ variant a few months down the line, this time around, OnePlus launched two different models of the handset in one go. Thanks to this development, OnePlus fans and techies alike were left wondering whether OnePlus would repeat its pattern of debuting a “T” version of the OnePlus 7 Pro (or the OnePlus 7 for that matter) a few months after both these handsets went on sale.
While we still do not have a concrete “Yes” or “No” answer to that, there has been a recent development on that front.
Is this the OnePlus 7T Pro?
Two images of what many people think are the first-ever pictures of the OnePlus 7T Pro recently appeared on the Chinese social media platform Weibo. The photos were leaked by a popular Weibo leakster Max J. The images made it to popular leaks aggregator Slashleaks a few hours later. As seen in the pictures above, the handset sure does look like the existing OnePlus 7 Pro. This, however, could also mean that it indeed, is the OnePlus 7 Pro and not the OnePlus 7T Pro as suggested by many people.
The main reason behind this confusion is the presence of a large case that obscures most of the design elements of this handset. What can be clearly made-out, however, is that the handset shown in the image has a distinctive curved display – very similar to the one on the One Plus 7 Pro. Users, however, were quick to notice that the curvature of the display on the original OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7T pro seem to be different. This bit, as of now remains speculation.
OnePlus 7T Pro: Expected specifications
The OnePlus 7T Pro is an upgraded version of the OnePlus 7 Pro, and there is a good chance that it will feature better hardware. For starters, we could expect OnePlus using the newer Snapdragon 855+ Soc instead of the standard non-overclocked version. As the case was with the OnePlus 7 Pro, the 7T Pro will also get a large 6.7-inch display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. The Super AMOLED panel has a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels with a PPI of 516. The camera setup on the OnePlus 7 Pro is likely to continue on the 7T Pro as well unless of course, the company decides to change this eventually. The primary camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro uses a 48-megapixel sensor with OIS and 16-megapixel secondary ultra-wide-angle camera and a third 8-megapixel telephoto camera.
All said and done, how many of you think the handset shown in the images is actually from the OnePlus 7T Pro?
