OnePlus today officially confirmed that a cheaper OnePlus phone with a 90Hz refresh rate display is coming very soon. The upcoming OnePlus phone will offer a similar display as the OnePlus 7 Pro, but it will cost lesser than the latter. Going by the rumours, it could be the OnePlus 7T. In an email interview with CNET, OnePlus Founder & CEO, Pete Lau confirmed that the company is launching a new phone with a 90Hz screen and it will be cheaper than the OnePlus 7 Pro. Notably, OnePlus India official Twitter handle has retweeted the post from CNET. So, it’s official that a new OnePlus phone is launching very soon and it could be the OnePlus 7T. That being said, we might see an upgraded version of OnePlus 7 Pro, possibly termed as OnePlus 7T Pro.
OnePlus 7T to Offer 90Hz Quad HD Screen
A few days ago, the complete spec-sheet of the OnePlus 7T was leaked online. Even that leak highlighted that the OnePlus 7T would indeed come with a screen that has 90Hz refresh rate. This is something very interesting to see, but at the same time, we may see the company hiking the price of OnePlus 7T again. The OnePlus 7 was launched in India at a starting of Rs 32,999, but with a 90Hz screen, we may see the price going upwards this time around. The screen size of the OnePlus 7T is said to 6.55-inches and there will be a teardrop notch on top.
Other leaked specifications of the OnePlus 7T include Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset, clubbed with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Compared to the OnePlus 7 which had dual rear cameras, the upcoming OnePlus 7T will feature triple camera setup- a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, 16MP wide-angle sensor and a 12MP telephoto lens. The phone is also expected to pack a slightly bigger 3800mAh battery with the same 20W fast charging.
OnePlus 7T Series Likely to Launch Alongside OnePlus TV
OnePlus will surely hold an event in India later in September, at least to launch the OnePlus TV. The Chinese company has been teasing the OnePlus TV for more than ten days now, and earlier today, the company’s CEO posted an image of the remote of OnePlus TV. That said, we may see the OnePlus 7T series also launching alongside the OnePlus TV in India. The rumoured launch date of OnePlus TV is September 26.
Talking about the OnePlus 7T Pro, the phone is said to retain the Quad HD 90Hz screen, pop-up selfie camera and the design. However, internally, we may see the processor being upgraded to Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ and there may be quad-camera setup on the back.
The phone will reportedly have a 4080mAh battery, Warp Charge 30T and several software side features.
