OnePlus launches latest flagship handset - OnePlus 7T

Share

An open beta test has been available for the OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T smartphones and a global launch could be around the corner.

The OnePlus 7T begins at a price of $599 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration.

When is the OnePlus 7T release date? The exact discounted prices of higher-end variants have yet to be revealed. OnePlus may have unveiled the device today at a launch event in the Indian capital, but pricing - crucial in order to rate the value of the phone, and indeed anything we test - won't be announced until its London-held 7T Series event on 10th October.

Another version featuring a sound bar will be available at Rs 99,900.

Around back, the OnePlus 7T sports a triple camera arrangement. After that launch was completed the OnePlus UK site had its own launch page go live which seems odd that if they were launching the same product why would they wait another two weeks and have another big launch event. The other big difference is that the Pro model ships with a stand.

The 20:9 Fluid display with a waterdrop notch makes the OnePlus 7T a baby born from the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro, taking the former's Fluid display and the latter's notch. Both also have a volume rocker on the left, and power button and silence slider (so you can easily switch your phone between silent mode and alert mode) on the right.

The OnePlus 7. Look familiar? The first is the most noticeable.

All three cameras have their uses, but the thing that bothers me most about switching between them is how they disagree when looking at a single scene. It doesn't quite match the Pro counterpart but it is close enough. In the image above, the scene was much more dimly lit and contrasty, but the 7T bumped the exposure too much and threw off the white balance, giving an nearly filtered look. While they'll both come with built-in 50W soundbars that support Dolby Atmos, the Pro model features a sliding eight-speaker array instead of a static four-speaker one. The OnePlus 7T isn't going to give you a Pixel or Huawei-level experience. The third is a super-stable video shooting mode that captures GoPro-like action footage (although only in 1080p, not 4K).

Broadly speaking, however, OnePlus says its TV fronts a color range that's best-in-class among fellow QLED competitors.

It should pack a 3,800mAh battery with support for OnePlus' Warp Charge technology. OnePlus suggested it will charge to full in an hour, which is impressively quick if true.

The OnePlus 7T is the first new phone to run Android 10 out of the box.
