OnePlus is releasing its next high-end smartphone, the OnePlus 7T. This isn't quite a followup to our favorite Android phone of the year, the OnePlus 7 Pro, but it takes the same basic package and trims it down for a more mainstream audience.
The OnePlus 7T is $599, leaving only $70 of difference between it and the 7 Pro. Naturally, there aren't a lot of differences between the OnePlus 7 Pro and this new OnePlus 7T. As far the design goes, the 7 Pro's party trick pop-up camera has been swapped out for OnePlus' tried-and-true water drop notch. In the past, OnePlus' notch design has been one of the most compact and unobtrusive in the industry, and for the 7T, OnePlus says the notch is now 34 percent smaller than the OnePlus 6T's version. The back has gotten a design tweak, too, with the camera components now living in a big circle.
The display is a 6.55-inch, 2400×1080 OLED panel. This is slightly less than the 6.67-inch, 1440p panel on the 7 Pro, and the 7T panel is also flat, instead of curved along the sides on the Pro. The new panel is still 90Hz, though, bringing the 7 Pro's best feature to an ever-so-slightly-smaller price point. The phone body is also a tiny bit smaller: 160.94mm × 74.4mm for the 7T compared to 162.6mm × 75.9mm for the 7 Pro.
