One of the brands that has given more to talk about in 2019 has been OnePlus. Today we have before OnePlus 7T for one first contact which is presented with the sole objective of breaking the market of the upper mid-range of the final months of 2019.
Their tricks are very clear. An exceptional screen, with the best available hardware and an operating system that cannot be put on a single but. Seeing this we could think that it is easy, but its predecessor is already a first level smartphone and 7T is not expected otherwise but revalidate the title.
Review: OnePlus 7 Pro, the perfect mix of hardware and software
We found a very similar front design (if not the same) that we could see in the OnePlus 7 with a water drop style notch as the only visual accident that disturbs the "all screen" front.
Instead, in the back is where we have seen more differences. A black circular site that inevitably reminds us of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is responsible for hosting the triple camera and flash.
This circle stands out remarkably of a surface made of matt glass and available in gray and blue colors. Something that does not convince us much although we want to believe that the OnePlus engineers have designed that protrusion strong enough to withstand the daily treatment.
On the left side we have the classic button to control the volume and on the right we find the lock button and the one dedicated to adjust the sound profiles (mute, vibration or normal) with which OnePlus has accustomed us.
No trace of the headphone jack, which seems a thing of the past in this category of smartphones, but what we see is a port USB 3.1 Type C in the central part of the lower edge.

Triple rear camera
In this section the company has done a lot of emphasis, the triple camera is one of the big bets to face the heavyweights of this last third of 2019. Let's see what presentation card OnePlus has chosen:
- Main lens: specifically it is the Sony IMX586 48 megapixel model, f / 1.6 and optical image stabilizer OIS. Be the one used for daytime photographs.
- Wide angle: the second of the cameras uses a 16 megapixel sensor with a field of view of 117 degrees. The best option if what we want is to photograph landscapes, large groups of people or narrow spaces that need a good angle.
- Telephoto: The third and last camera has among its powers the 12 megapixels, a 2x optical zoom and an aperture f / 2.2.
In the review we will test this camera triplet in depth and the frontal, composed of a unique lens of 16 megapixels also signed by Sony and hosted in the notch.
AMOLED display at 90 Hz
We return to the front to talk about the screen. One of the most amazing features of the OnePlus 7 Pro was its screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
Now, the small of the renewed family also incorporates a AMOLED panel with these 90 Hz that combine perfectly with the 6.55 inches and FullHD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), which yields a density of 402 pixels per inch.
The first impact we receive from this panel is very positive. Incredible colors, a soft touch of the highest level and that fluidity that only 90 Hz are able to offer.
Perfect hardware and software
The processor we have in the OnePlus 7T is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, a chip from the last batch of Americans that is an evolution compared to Snapdragon 855 (although there are not many differences in practice).
For RAM they have chosen 8 GB LPDDR4X and storage run by 128 or 256 GB UFS 3.0. Among the interesting additions we can find we have a fingerprint sensor under the screen, Dolby Atmos audio and a facial recognition that in the first tests worked very well.
The operating system OxygenOS is based on Android 10. This ROM is one of the best in terms of cleanliness and overall performance, including interesting options such as Zen Mode but without minimizing the user experience.
All this is fed by a 3,800 mAh battery with support for fast loading. He Warp charge, as the OnePlus fast charge is commercially called, get 30 W and promises to fill the battery in no time.
OnePlus 7T, price and availability
The only thing we know about price and availability is that get to Spain. For the moment, the date of sale and the price to appear on the label they are a mystery and we will have to wait for it to be revealed in the coming weeks.
Although this touchdown be a first approach to OnePlus 7T, we will have to wait for the in-depth review to know all the ins and outs of the operating system and squeeze until the last drop to a hardware that promises to leave us with our mouths open.
What are the differences between the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro?
