After being subjected to an endless stream of leaks, the OnePlus 7T finally has an official launch date. The brand has announced that the phone will be unveiled at an event in New Delhi on September 26. It is likely that OnePlus will take this opportunity to also unveil the OnePlus TV. The smartphone will also be officially launching in North America on the same day, with a third launch event scheduled to take place in London on October 10.
Just like other OnePlus events in the past, the launch for the OnePlus 7T will be open to the public. Those who wish to attend will be able to grab tickets for the venue from September 20. You can head over to the OnePlus Forums for more details. In the meanwhile, Amazon has a teaser page up for the smartphone, with a “Notify Me” button also available for those who want to stay in the loop.
Based on what the brand has already confirmed (along with what we saw in a recent leak), we have a pretty decent idea of what to expect from the OnePlus 7T. The most significant upgrade will be its 90Hz display that promises to be “smooth like never before.” This display will make use of an AMOLED panel that will likely measure around 6.5-inches and bear a Full HD+ resolution.
The phone is expected to rock a Snapdragon 855+ chipset that will be paired with 8GB of RAM with either 128GB or 258GB of storage. For software, we would be surprised if the phone does not feature Oxygen OS based on Android 10. Powering the handset will be a 3800mAh battery that is expected to feature WARP Charge 30T which is said to be 20 percent faster than that of the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Imaging seems to have been a significant point of focus for OnePlus, as now the phone reportedly houses three rear cameras. Spearheading the triple rear setup will be a 48MP shooter with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS tech. This will be paired with a 12MP telephoto (2x zoom) camera and a 16MP ultra-wide. For selfies, the phone is said to sport a 16MP shooter.
The leak also claims that a OnePlus 7T Pro exists with a larger display bearing a QHD+ resolution. The battery will also reportedly be larger at 4085mAh, and the selfie camera should be housed within a pop-up mechanism just like its predecessor. The back of this phone will also feature a similar triple camera setup as the OnePlus 7T, with the only difference being its 8Mp telephoto sensor capable of 3x zoom.
