Display

The OnePlus 7T features a 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. It’s larger than the OnePlus 7’s 6.41-inch AMOLED display, though the resolution remains the same. At the same time, it’s smaller and features a lower resolution than the OnePlus 7 Pro’s 6.67-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED display.

Don’t miss: OnePlus 7T review

The 7T and 7 Pro’s displays share one important feature: a 90Hz refresh rate. It’s as if you’re zooming through the software, apps, and games when using the 7T and 7 Pro’s displays. That’s not to say the 7’s display is bad, but it’s hard to go back when you get used to a 90Hz refresh rate.

Another shared feature between the 7T and 7 Pro’s displays is support for HDR10 and HDR+. That means the displays can properly display content with more color and contrast information between pure black and pure white.

Processor, memory, and storage

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.

The 7T features the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus, while the 7 and 7 Pro feature the regular Snapdragon 855. Compared to the Snapdragon 855, the Snapdragon 855 Plus features a higher-clocked CPU and a 15% GPU performance boost.

Shifting to memory, the 7T features 8GB of RAM. The 7 and 7 Pro gives you the option of 6 or 8GB of RAM, with the 7 Pro offering a third 12GB option. Most people will be just fine with 8GB of RAM, though 12GB of RAM provides more headroom for the serious multi-taskers among us.

As for storage, the 7T only features 128GB of storage. That’s fine for most people, though some will want to consider the 7 and 7 Pro’s 256GB option.

Cameras

The 7T features a triple camera setup with a 48MP main sensor, 16MP ultra-wide sensor, and 8MP telephoto sensor. This is the same camera setup as on the 7 Pro and a significant step up from the regular 7, which features a 48MP main sensor and 5MP depth sensor.

On the front, all three OnePlus smartphones feature single 16MP selfie cameras. Whereas the 7 Pro stores the camera in a pop-up mechanism, the 7T and 7 make room for their selfie cameras with the display notch. 

Image quality doesn’t drastically differ between the three phones, but the flexibility of the 7T and 7 Pro’s camera setups offers a distinct advantage over the 7’s camera setup. In case you’re not a huge fan of OnePlus’ image processing, you can bet there’ll be a Google Camera port compatible with the 7T.

Battery

Inside of the 7T is a 3,800mAh battery — marginally bigger than the 7’s 3,700mAh battery and smaller than the 7 Pro’s 4,000mAh battery. Even with a big battery, don’t expect the 7T to be a battery champ. As we saw with the 7 Pro, the 7T’s 90Hz refresh rate means the phone gets average battery life at best.

Thankfully, the 7T supports OnePlus’ new Warp Charge 30T. Similar to the 7 Pro, the 7T includes a 30-watt charger in the box. That compares favorably to the 20-watt charger included in the 7.

The difference lies in charging speed. According to OnePlus, Warp Charge 30T is more efficient than the 7 Pro’s Warp Charge 30 and can charge the 7T 23% faster than the 7 series phones. In just 70 minutes, the 7T charged from zero to full. That’s compared to the 81 minutes it took the 7 Pro to get the same charge.


That’s it for our specs comparison of the OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7, and OnePlus 7 Pro. We wouldn’t blame OnePlus 7 owners if they upgraded to the newer phone for the display alone. However, 7 Pro owners have no reason to shift to the 7T. Apart from the processor and charging speed, there’s not much of a difference between the two phones. In some cases, it might even be a downgrade — the OnePlus 7 Pro will sacrifice display size, RAM, and storage compared to the 7T.

Overall, the OnePlus 7T is a solid update from the 7 and an interesting choice when compared to the 7 Pro. Let us know in the comments below what you think of the 7T’s specs!
