OnePlus 7T will continue with the glass back design with a matte finish
OnePlus 7T will sport a rear-facing circular camera module with as many as three sensors. The smartphone will launch in India on September 26.
OnePlus on Tuesday revealed the first official renders of its OnePlus 7T smartphone. The renders give us the best look at the OnePlus 7 successor from all possible angles.
The first thing you'll notice the circular camera module on OnePlus 7T with three camera sensors. The circular module is identical to the crown-like module on the older generation of Motorola Moto G smartphone. OnePlus 7T's back camera module has "triple-lens, 17-26-51mm" engraving. Apart from the camera sensors, the module also has an LED flash.
OnePlus 7T will continue with the glass back design with a matte finish. Overall, the phone has a familiar glass-metal-glass design. The volume, power unlock/lock, and slider buttons are on the side edges just like the older generation phones.
"To convey the superior quality and effortless versatility of our Triple Camera setup, finding an elegant balance between the three unique lenses. With perfect symmetry from any orientation, a circular design became the natural choice. A circle's rounded edges produce an appealing contrast against the straight lines of a smartphone's rectangular form for a seamless, balanced feel. After going through over fifty design iterations, we think we've landed on something pretty special," wrote CEO Pete Lau in a forum post.
OnePlus 7T is scheduled to launch in India on September 26. The company will launch OnePlus 7T Pro on a later date, October 10.
Ahead of the official launch, OnePlus has confirmed the OnePlus 7 successor will come with a 90Hz display. The feature was earlier exclusive to OnePlus 7 Pro, the premium version of the smartphone.
According to reports, OnePlus 7T will come with a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with HDR10+ and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The smartphone will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset, a 3,800mAh battery with a 30W Warp charger in the box. The smartphone is also expected to house a 48-megapixel camera.
OnePlus TV may launch on Sept 26
OnePlus may unveil the upcoming OnePlus TV on this event.
Last week, an Amazon sale listing confirmed that the OnePlus TV would be one of the products that would be available during the ecommerce giant's Great Indian Festival sale.
A couple of weeks ago, CEO Pete Lau shared a photo on Twitter that showed off the back of the TV, revealing its Kevlar finish and a unique swivel stand.
'No detail is too small,' wrote Lau in a Twitter post with the image of the OnePlus TV.
The swivel mechanism is expected to hold the TV from the top, providing easy access to the ports at the bottom of the device.
Earlier, the company confirmed several key details of the device.
An Amazon landing page for the product revealed that the TV will feature a 55-inch 4K QLED display with support for Dolby Vision. This will be accompanied by eight speakers with a combined output of 50W. The speakers will be powered by Dolby Atmos sound technology.
Lau in the past also said that the OnePlus TV will run the Android TV platform and guaranteed software updates for at least three years. He also said that the TV will offer access to Google Assistant and the Play Store.
In the forum post for the TV's introduction last month, Lau clarified that the company's goal is to offer the same fast and smooth experience of OnePlus phones for the OnePlus TV, hence they went for Android TV. Adding to the seamlessness, it is expected to run a modified version of Android TV OS with OnePlus' OxygenOS UI.
Media reports have shown in the past that the TV might come in three display sizes of 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch.
An image of the OnePlus TV remote hinted at a slim form factor, bearing resemblance to Apple TV's remote. It received Bluetooth SIG certification last month and was shown to have five buttons on the top. The remote is likely to pair with the OnePlus TV via Bluetooth.
