The new OnePlus 7T has been officially announced. And we are ready to introduce you to this new product a little closer. Further

detailed review and unboxing of the smartphone with a detailed description of technical characteristics and advantages. We will also tell you about the price, start date of sales…

Overview of OnePlus 7T

Short:the new product has four main new functions — it has a 90Hz high refresh rate screen, triple camera, faster chip and an improved battery that charges up to 50% in just 20 minutes.

What is the difference between OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 6T?


So, what you will find inside the box of the fresh OnePlus 7T:

  • OnePlus 7T
  • Transparent silicone case
  • Charger Warp 30T
  • Standard USB-USB-C Cable (Red)
  • SIM Healing Tool
  • OnePlus Stickers
  • User's manual

OnePlus 7T could be the best flagship foraffordable price. While it costs nearly half the price of flagship phones like the Galaxy Note and Apple iPhone lines, it's the first phone we've seen running Android 10, it has the fastest chip for Android phones, the Snapdragon 855+, and it has a beautiful 90Hz AMOLED high refresh rate screen.


OnePlus 7T comes with a beautifulAMOLED screen that supports 90 Hz refresh rate. This means that unlike the traditional screen, which is updated 60 times per second, this one does this 90 times per second, which ensures maximum speed and smoothness. From the experience of the first users, we can confidently say that the screen looks as fast and responsive as on the flagship phone OnePlus 7 Pro.

Screen size 6.55 inches — this is whatOnePlus calls Fluid AMOLED, and it's slightly taller than previous OnePlus phones, with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the 7 Pro, this screen isn't curved, it's completely flat, but it still has minimal bezels. Many users, including us, believe that flat screens are easier to work with.

The screen also supports HDR 10+ and hasvery high peak brightness — up to 1000 nits, making it easier to see outdoors. As for the notch on the screen, it is now 30% smaller than on the OnePlus 7.

Snapdragon 855+

OnePlus 7T features the latest chip under the hoodQualcomm Snapdragon 855+. The main advantage of this chip compared to the popular Snapdragon 855 is an increase in graphics performance by 15%. This increase will be especially appreciated by gamers, plus the 90 Hz screen plays a significant role here. The chip will work together with 8 GB of RAM, which again is a premium level.

OnePlus 7T will be sold in 128 GB versions(most markets) or 256GB (some countries), and it does not support microSD cards for storage expansion. This is a new type of storage called UFS 3.0, much faster storage with faster read and write speeds. OnePlus first introduced this storage on the OnePlus 7 Pro this summer, and now they have brought this feature to the OnePlus 7T as well.

Fast charge

Another key benefit toOnePlus users is Warp's unique charging technology. Warp Charge supports high charging speeds, and also perfectly prevents the phone from overheating during charging. Here, the chemical composition of the battery is a little tweaked, so you get slightly higher speeds, and now you get 50% of the charge in just 20 minutes, faster than the half hour that was typical for the phone before. Since the change only happens in the phone’s battery, you can also use the charger from previous 7 / 7Pro models and still get high speed.

The battery capacity of the OnePlus 7T is 3800 mAh, which is quite large. And if you're wondering about wireless charging, it's still not supported on this phone.

The first Android 10 phone

OnePlus not only delivers updates to its phones quickly, but is also the first to release devices with new software. The OnePlus 7T was the first phone to run Android 10 out of the box.

Android 10 on the phone works in a specialthe shell that OnePlus calls OxygenOS. The main changes are related to the dark mode and the new gesture navigation, which now uses the gesture to go back, which is a long-awaited change.

The latest version of Oxygen OS also has some useful new features:

  • Alwas On Display now has more customization options
  • Zen mode, which blocks unimportant notifications and allows you to take a break from your phone, has also been refined
  • In landscape mode, you can now swipe from the bottom of the screen to go back, not from the side
  • Reading mode now has the ability to show muted color, not just black and white

Best camera

OnePlus 7T received a powerful triple camera system with incredible video stabilization.

On the back panel you will see three cameras, which are now arranged in a circle. Note that they are slightly protruding.

  • 48-megapixel main camera, f / 1.6 aperture, 26 mm 7-element lens, with optical stabilization (OIS)
  • 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, 17 mm
  • 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 12x zoom, f / 2.2 aperture, 51 mm

In front is a 16 MP selfie camera with fixed focus.

As usual, there are a ton of new camera features, sothat let's deal with them. Firstly, portrait mode now works with both primary and telephoto lenses, so you have more options. There is a new macro mode that focuses as close as 2.5cm. You can now use the ultra-wide camera for Nightscape cityscapes, and you can also use the ultra-wide lens in videos.

But the best new feature may be the extremely improved video stabilization.

Other features

There are a few small ones, but still veryimpressive things you'll get on the OnePlus 7T. It's a new haptic engine (which is bigger than before, but not as big as the one on the 7 Pro). It gives off very nice vibes and will be greatly appreciated in both daily life and gaming. The optical fingerprint scanner is slightly improved and a little faster, plus it has new animations. And the mute switch is still there, and you can set it to mute the phone, put it on vibration mode, or have it ring.
