So what has changed from 7T and the 7T Pro? I am struggling to decipher the difference, TBH. Both has the same processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile Platform, bolstered by 8 GB LPDDDR4X RAM and a larger 256 GB UFS 3.0 2-LANE storage.
It has same 90 Hz AMOLED display, albeit larger with the Pro model’s display coming in at larger 6.67-inch and packing more pixel-per-inch (516) with its 3,120 x 1,440 resolution. Plus, it has a 3D Corning Gorilla Glass as opposed to a 2.5D. And then there’s the laser focus thingy.
Wait a minute there… the OnePlus 7T Pro is pretty much the OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7T without the notch. I deduced that it is a marriage between the 7 Pro and 7T. Those in stateside will probably not know because, officially there are only the Pro and the T.
Anyways, beyond those the OnePlus 7T Pro is pretty much the same as the 7 Pro, save for the SoC and also a tad higher capacity battery at 4,085 mAh and an even faster Warp Charge 30T. Even the triple camera setup and the selfie camera are the exact same units.
If you want to go further, out-of-the-box, the OnePlus 7T Pro, like the OnePlus 7T, runs on OxygenOS based on Android 10, not the Pie. Those are pretty much it.
Definitely not a call for upgrade, but hey, if you haven’t gotten one and have been harboring the thought of doing so, I guess the OnePlus 7T Pro is the obvious flagship now. Especially you have a distaste for the notch and also wanted the latest processor.
We did not find OnePlus 7T Pro listed on the U.S., nor is it on its home market website. However, it is selling in the U.K. for £699 (around US$908). As for the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition, it is offered only in 12 GB/256 GB configuration and sells for £799 (or roughly US$1,040).
The OnePlus 7T Pro is already available in U.K. now, but the McLaren Edition will only be available in 16-17 days time.
