Though many things remain the same between the OnePlus 7T Pro and 7 Pro, there are areas in which lie few differences.
The OnePlus recently released its next-generation phones in the middle of the year, followed by an iterative upgrade towards the end. The OnePlus 7 Pro came out in July has now been surpassed by the OnePlus 7T Pro. But how do they stack up, really?
One Plus 7T vs One Plus 7T Pro vs One Plus 7
The OnePlus 7 Pro introduced some notable upgrades on the OnePlus 6T: a pop-up selfie camera that did away with the notch, a Samsung-style screen with curved edges and premium resolution, and a third ultra-wide rear camera.
Those upgrades bumped up the price – not as high as Apple and Samsung’s flagships, but enough to tip it into budget flagship territory. The OnePlus 7T Pro builds on that legacy with a couple of improvements that make it the best phone OnePlus has ever released.
But given OnePlus’ strange release strategies, some regions won’t even get access to the OnePlus 7T Pro – for folks in those areas, this guide should show what you may be missing out on. For others with easier access to both phones, it’s a comparison guide to see whether it’s worth ponying up for the newer model or if the older should be sought at a discount.
For optics, the OnePlus 7T has the same triple camera setup that comes with OnePlus 7 Pro. It has a 48MP main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and an 8MP telephoto sensor. But the new OnePlus 7T comes with a macro mode that allows you to get super-close to the subject without losing focus. OnePlus has also improved the video recording capabilities with OnePlus 7T and now it combines EIS and the OIS to create the super stable mode.
OnePlus has also opted for a dual-camera setup on the phone consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor
OnePlus launched OnePlus 7T in India less than six months after it unveiled OnePlus 7 Pro. The new OnePlus 7T has got two models and will also be available in two different colors. Also, the OnePlus 7T price in India starts at Rs 37,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option, whereas its 8GB RAM and 256GB variant will be available for Rs 39,999. The brand new T variant from the OnePlus stable is over Rs 10,000 cheaper than the OnePlus 7 Pro, which starts at Rs 48,999. OnePlus 7 is priced at 29,000 as of 29th October. So, are you losing anything?

The design of OnePlus 7T might look like a downgrade from the OnePlus 7 Pro’s curved display, but it is not for most real-life users. Curved displays are still prone to accidental touches and warped video watching experience in the landscape mode.
Do you know that OnePlus 7T is 8.1mm thick and has a 6.55-inch fluid AMOLED display? Both OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro display support 90Hz refresh, HDR10, and HDR+. The resolution of OnePlus 7T is at 1080P plus vs QHD Plus one OnePlus 7 Pro.
The OnePlus 7 has a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution which provides good viewing angles and has multiple display modes to choose from has a dewdrop notch on the 7 which houses a 16-megapixel selfie camera. The OnePlus 7 has Corning Gorilla Glass protection at the front and the back which helps in resisting scratches.
As far as specifications are concerned, OnePlus 7T comes with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC (OnePlus 7 Pro has Snapdragon 855 chipset) and also supports Warp Charge 30T that is touted to be 18 percent faster than Warp Charge 30 of OnePlus 7 Pro.
OnePlus 7T features 8GB of RAM. OnePlus 7 Pro gives you the option of 6GB or 8GB of RAM, but most people will be just fine with 8GB of RAM.
Apart from the processor and charging speed, which is in the favor of newly launched OnePlus 7T, there’s not much of a difference between the two phones. OnePlus still offers dual front-facing speakers like the 7 Pro and the in-display fingerprint scanner of OnePlus 7T is imported directly from the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Final statement: OnePlus 7T offers almost every feature of the OnePlus 7 Pro. The only reason to pick the OnePlus 7 Pro is the higher resolution screen but the full-HD+ (1080×2400 pixels) screen is not bad at all. OnePlus 7T is a solid upgrade over OnePlus 7 and can even topple OnePlus 7 Pro as the flagship with a price to die for.
As expected for a midyear upgrade, the OnePlus 7T Pro hasn’t improved much with the look and display of its predecessor.
The OnePlus 7 Pro went for premium with its screen, with a huge 6.67-inch, 19.5:9 ratio AMOLED display. The large size is matched by the large QHD+ (1440 x 3120) resolution, producing some of the sharpest images we’ve seen on smartphones. It also bumped up the refresh rate to 90Hz, for a far more seamless and less juddery flow when navigating around the phone, than the typical 60Hz of most phones.
In order to get a more premium appearance than the previous phones’ flat screens, OnePlus curved the sides of the display for a waterfall-style look. They also achieved an unblemished front free from notches by rearranging the front-facing camera to pop up from the top of the phone.
The OnePlus 7T Pro inherited everything its predecessor and didn’t do much with it, which is fine – the design and display upgrades over the OnePlus 6T were notable enough when we saw them earlier this year that we don’t mind the lack of tweaks.
OnePlus 7 has Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC that is capable of running every game out there. There are two types of the OnePlus 7, 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB storage.
