OnePlus has picked September 26 because the official unveiling date for its subsequent flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7T. The corporate is internet hosting a “distinctive on-line reveal of the OnePlus 7T in North America” at 10:30am ET with a follow-up “OnePlus 7T Collection Launch Occasion” occurring in London on October 10.

OnePlus releases a brand new flagship smartphone about as soon as each six months. March noticed the corporate launch two fashions, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Professional. The US lineup acquired a bit bizarre this yr, with solely the OnePlus 7 Professional launching within the US and the older OnePlus 6T persevering with to be offered within the US in lieu of the OnePlus 7. Learn by means of that first paragraph once more and it looks as if OnePlus is suggesting that it is sticking with the two-phone launch plan (the “OnePlus 7T Collection”), and the cheaper OnePlus 7T will make it to North America this time (the “on-line reveal of the OnePlus 7T in North America”).

The OnePlus 7 Professional remains to be the very best Android telephone in the marketplace proper now. The six-month-old telephone’s all-screen design, pop-up digicam, and silky clean 90Hz OLED show is one thing most producers nonetheless cannot match at any worth level, and delivering all of it for $670 makes it arduous to contemplate any of the higher-priced options within the flagship enviornment. The cheaper OnePlus 7, which, once more, did not come to the US, continued the design of the 2018 OnePlus 6T, simply with the internals upgraded with a brand new SoC.

Usually, the mid-cycle “T” updates from OnePlus are comparatively minor in comparison with main releases that come firstly of the yr. If OnePlus sticks to the same old plan, anticipate a “OnePlus 7T Professional” that’s closely primarily based on the OnePlus 7 Professional. The cheaper telephone remains to be new territory for OnePlus, however because it recycled the 2018 design, it will make sense to see some modifications. A render of the OnePlus 7T from OnLeaks exhibits the identical entrance design because the 6T, however with a brand new triple-camera setup on the again, housed in a round digicam module. OnLeaks additionally managed to place collectively a spec sheet for each telephones. Highlights embrace the newer Snapdragon 855+ SoC that debuted a number of months in the past, the 90Hz show coming to the cheaper OnePlus 7T, 20 p.c quicker charging, and an replace to the newly launched Android 10. It seems the 2 largest flaws of the OnePlus 7 Professional, the dearth of wi-fi charging and the dearth of an always-on ambient show, won’t be addressed.

As we talked about, OnePlus has been enjoying unusual availability video games with the US recently. After withholding the OnePlus 7 from the US in March, there is a rumor that the usual OnePlus 7T Professional will not make it to American shores. Supposedly the US will solely see the cheaper OnePlus 7T and a 5G mmWave model of the OnePlus 7T Professional, with 4G model of the 7T Professional obtainable all over the place else. 5G mmWave networks barely exist proper now, and the first-gen is grossly unoptimized and energy hungry, so you do not need to purchase a 5G telephone. If the rumors are true, the US will likely be lacking out on the very best model of OnePlus’ flagship.

The silver lining for the 5G model is that we’d get a brand new entry for the record of ridiculously lengthy Android smartphone names. OnePlus is rumored to be going with the unimaginable title of “OnePlus 7T Professional 5G McLaren Version,” a full-and-meaty 13 syllables. If this rumor pans out, OnePlus’ wordsmiths would greatest earlier excessive marks set by units just like the “LG V50 Skinny Q 5G” and the legendary “Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Contact.”

Anyway, examine again on the 26th.
