According to the speculations, OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro will be incremental upgrades to the current line-up. Both models are expected to come with Snapdragon 855 SoC chipset, 16MP ultra-wide camera, AMOLED screens, 8GB RAM, up to 256GB internal storage, in-display fingerprint sensor, and a fast-charging battery.
In terms of display, OnePlus 7T is likely to feature a 6.55-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display with 90hz refresh rate and a smaller notch which is an upgrade over the 6.4-inch 60Hz FHD+ Optic AMOLED display on the OnePlus 7. The OnePlus 7T Pro is rumoured to have a larger 6.65-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support.
In terms of optics, the device would retain a 16MP selfie shooter, and the 48MP main camera at the back will now be joined by 16MP and 12MP units. Unlike Apple's iPhone 11 Pro, the smartphone's rear camera will come in a circular dial. The 7T Pro is expected to sport a triple-camera setup with a primary 48MP sensor, an 8MP telephoto unit with 3x zoom, 16MP ultra-wide sensor. The cameras would be able to record wide-angle and 960 FPS slow-mo videos.
The 7T would house a slightly bigger 3800mAh battery against OnePlus 7's 3700mAh. Meanwhile, the 7T Pro is likely to be packed with 4,085mAh battery with "Warp Charge 30T" charging support.
