OnePlus, whose phones are always fighting for the title of best spec-price ratio, releases two main devices every year. There is the primary flagship in late spring, then an iterative update with the suffix "T" in the fall. Usually there is not much difference between the two, but this year OnePlus is confusing the formula a bit.
The biggest change came with the spring cycle when OnePlus released the 7 Pro in the US. Other countries have a stripped down version that is simply called the OnePlus 7. But that changes with the fall release: the US only gets the OnePlus 7T, not the potential 7T Pro that we had guessed. So it's an iterative update for a lower model that we didn't get in the first place ̵
OnePlus 7T Highlights
OnePlus announced the OnePlus 7T on September 26, 2019. It was announced through a live stream that started at 10.30 am EDT.
The phone will be available to the public from October 18, 2019. No pre-order dates have been announced. OnePlus promised, however, that they would let users buy the phone early at the T-Mobile Signature Store in New York. Date and time details will be released later.
- Release Date: October 18, 2019
- Pre-Order Date: N / A
- Announced: September 26, 2019 (10:00 AM EDT)
The 7T will be available in only one storage option, 128 GB. Although this is not much (especially without a microSD card), one thing to remember is that this is UFS 3.0 storage. UFS 3.0 uses double rows for reading and writing and offers a higher bandwidth than the previous standard, which means that saving files and loading apps is faster.
- Available storage: 128 GB
- Expandable storage: no
This is probably the most important piece of information for most OnePlus users, and you get a treat. For the first time, OnePlus lowers the price. That's right, the OnePlus 7T starts at $ 599, $ 70 lower than the 7 Pro. Frankly, this price reduction makes sense, since the 7 Pro is still a better overall phone.
The OnePlus 7T has a similar design to its predecessor with aluminum on the edges and glass on both sides. It comes in two colors, Glacier Blue and Frosted Silver. The rear glass is a matte matte material with a nice texture that makes it less slippery, but it is still sensitive to fingerprints. It also has an improved vibration motor that is more precise and easier to feel.
- Frame: aluminum
- Finish: Haze Blue, Frosted Silver
The 7T is a smaller phone than the 7 Pro thanks to the smaller display. It is also a thinner phone thanks to the smaller battery, so this is perhaps the favorite OnePlus phone for those struggling with the large size and thickness of the 7 Pro.
Regarding carriers, T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier of the 7T. OnePlus will once again sell the GSM version on their website that works on T-Mobile, AT & T and Verizon networks.

It is no surprise that the OnePlus 7T runs Android 10 on the box. OnePlus has just released the latest version of Android for the OnePlus 7 Pro days before the 7T announcement.
OnePlus 7T users get access to more than 60 new changes, including updated full-screen gesture control, but they will also rock the first phone that comes with the new OS version.
The 7T will run the latest version of Oxygen OS, 10.0. Although it will not debut the software (because the 7 Pro is already running it), it will be the first OnePlus phone to take it out of the box. As usual, OnePlus will improve stock Android with optimizations and faster animations.
One improvement is Game Space, a special area for accessing all your games and refining the experience. Ambient Display can now display information based on specific times, locations and events. Full-screen gestures have been improved (which are already among the best) with new swipe in to go back and the ability to easily switch between recent apps with a new navigation bar at the bottom.
The OnePlus 7T has a virtually identical display as the 7 Pro with one exception: it is only 1080p. You still get the 90 Hz refresh rate and the HDR10 + certification. The maximum brightness is also increased to 1,000 nits, 200 nits lower than the leading display of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
A nice upgrade (for some) is the return of a flat screen. Although the curved screen offers more immersive experiences because it gives you the impression that the screen never ends (at least on the side), it is susceptible to accidental touch. That is no longer a problem with the 7T.
The 7T brings the notch back. It is the same tear-shaped notch from the 6T (or the 7 from abroad), so it is minimal, but it is still there, for better or worse. The display is TÜV certified to reduce blue light, which reduces the strain on your eyes, especially at night.
