OnePlus 7T Features

Let us start with the new triple camera, as it is the biggest upgrade on the OnePlus 7T. The 48MP main sensor uses the same Sony IMX586 sensor as before, but it now has a slightly brighter aperture (f/1.6, up from f/1.7), matching the OnePlus 7 Pro.

It comes with a new 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom. For comparison, the Pro camera offers more zoom (3x), but lower resolution (8MP). Note that unlike the Pro, the tele camera on the 7T does not have OIS.

The third camera is a 16MP ultra-wide shooter with 117 degrees field of view, same as the Pro. The OnePlus 7T boasts Nightscape mode as before, but it has two new tricks as well – macro mode for shooting from 2.5cm away (1”) along with 960fps slow-motion mode at 720p.

The Fluid AMOED display is the OnePlus 7T’s ticket to the 90Hz club. Having a 20:9 aspect ratio, it is slightly taller than the OnePlus 7 screen and has a 6.55 degrees diagonal. The teardrop notch is a third smaller to boot. The 16MP selfie camera in that notch remains unchanged though.

Apart from the silky-smooth refresh rate, the display supports HDR10+ so you can enjoy the expanded color range of new movies and TV shows. The Pro variant still has the upper hand as the OnePlus 7T has a 1080p+ resolution instead of QHD.

The peak brightness of the display is 1,000 nits, surpassing the Pro (800 nits), the gap to the OnePlus 7 is even larger. The 7T also gets a new haptic driver for a stronger, more natural vibration

Note the “T” in Warp Charge 30T, it denotes that it’s 23% faster than the previous 30W Warp Charge. While the maximum power is the same, an optimized charging curve means that the 3800mAh battery can reach 70% charge in half an hour. There is still no wireless charging, not that we expected different.

The matte back is made of 3D Corning Gorilla Glass and is available in Glacier Blue and Frosted Silver, both with a subtle gradient. The Gorilla Glass on the front is flat, great for those who don’t buy into the curved screen craze.

The chipset of the OnePlus 7T was upgraded to a Snapdragon 855+ as expected, which boosts the GPU clock speeds – that will come in handy as the catalog of games with 90Hz support is growing fast. Better yet, the phone now comes with 8GB of RAM as standard (up from 6GB on the OnePlus 7) and you get a choice of 128GB and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage.
