OnePlus 7T Pro Hands-on, Unboxing: More Of The Same, But That’s OK

Incremental update for the holdouts

The OnePlus 7 Pro is an incredible device for the price point, so much so that we were surprised that the company released a follow-up phone so soon. The OnePlus 7T Pro is only very slightly different from last year’s model, and really it’s the lower-end OnePlus 7T that feels more like an upgrade over the regular OnePlus 7.

If you’re already a OnePlus 7 Pro owner you shouldn’t fret as you’re really not missing out on a lot by not upgrading. The OnePlus 7T Pro is meant to entice people on the fence about the brand, and if you’re upgrading to a new flagship this year, it’s incredibly hard not to seriously consider this phone.

Packaging and contents

The OnePlus 7T Pro comes in an incredibly unmistakable red box with a manifesto of sorts printed on the outside. Inside the box sits the phone, a case, a few stickers, the Warp Charger and a USB Type-C cable

Slight upgrade, Same looks

The OnePlus 7T Pro looks extremely similar to the earlier OnePlus 7 that came out this year. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to really find the design differences between the two phones even if you held them both in your hands.

New for the OnePlus 7T Pro is the color Haze Blue, which comes in a lovely matte finish. The phone is still quite easy to hold thanks to the curved back.

Just like the earlier model, the OnePlus 7T Pro is a tall smartphone, thanks to 6.67-inch display stuck on the front.

The display is one of the main features of the OnePlus 7T Pro, since it runs a 90Hz refresh rate compared to the typical 60Hz on regular phones. Because of the higher refresh rate, going through the phone’s menus feels incredibly fluid, and gaming on the OnePlus 7T Pro is sheer joy.

There’s no notch on the front of the display, thanks to the pop-up camera housing that hides the 16-megapixel front camera.

The three cameras on the back is still arranged vertically, and is composed of a 48-megapixel f/1.6 main camera, 12-megapixel f/2.2 telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel f/2.2 ultrawide lens.

Inside the phone sits Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855+ processor, which is a slight step up from their regular SD855.

It’s the same processor that ASUS used on their gaming-focused ROG Phone II, boasting slightly higher clock speeds and performance compared to the regular model.

The OnePlus 7T Pro also comes with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of non-expandable UFS 3.0 storage for maximum performance.

The hardware isn’t a large jump from the regular OnePlus 7T, but an improvement is still an improvement, no matter how small.

Inside the phone sits a 4085mAh capacity battery, that can quickly be charged thanks to the 30W Warp Charge capabilities of the phone when using the provided charger and cable.

The OnePlus 7T Pro feels incredibly quick and fluid during its short time with us, though we still need more time to fully test out the phone before we can deliver our verdict.

If you want to pick one up now, you’ll have to pay Php 42,990 for one via Digital Walker.
