If there’s a brand that has started to become attractive for plenty of users is OnePlus, specially for the specs that you get for the price that you pay. We’re used to bi-annual releases of their phones, and today we saw the official launch of the OnePlus 7T, a device that incorporates some of the innovations of the OnePlus 7 Pro with budget users in mind.
One of the most important innovations from the OnePlus 7T is definitely the 90hz refresh rate inherited from the OnePlus 7 Pro, which provides a smoother viewing experience in an impressive 6.5 AMOLED display. The most noticeable difference between the OnePlus 7T and the OnePlus 7 Pro is the presence of a teardrop notch and a flat screen design.
When it comes to cameras, the device comes with three: a 48-megapixel main camera, an ultra-wide angle camera of 16-megapixels and a telephoto one (up to 2x) of 12-megapixels. The faster performance is achieved by using a Qualcomm 855+ processor, 8GB of RAM and 128 of UFS 3.0 storage, for fast read/write speeds and better multitasking running Android 10 out of the box, paired with all the Google and OnePlus featured services that we’re used to see in their devices.
The phone is definitely a great device for what you pay for it, despite the fact that some users complain that they don’t like that OnePlus has increased the prices since they entered the market back in 2014 as a budget-friendly brand, however, for $599 the 7T provides pretty much all the best flagship features from his 7 Pro brother for less.
One of the main benefits of this version is the newer Warp Charge 30T technology that claims to charge the 3200mAh bettery from 0% to 70% in aproximately 30 minutes, using the built-in USB-C 3.1 port.
If you’re considering to upgrade your old phone, this device is definitely worth considering. Yes, the notch can be a dealbreaker for some users and the black circle in the back where the cameras are located is not precisely beautiful, but those are things you get used to over time and are pretty much small aesthetic compromises.
There are some rumours going around that there could be a new OnePlus 7T Pro release in October in case you’d want to wait for it, but it’s unlikely that it would be a huge performance jump from the 7 Pro.
