OnePlus champions power and speed with new OnePlus 7T Pro and McLaren Edition

OnePlus has announced not one but two new additions to the OnePlus 7T family, the OnePlus 7T Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. These two top models follow the standard OnePlus 7T announced at the end of September, a phone with which we were already very impressed. While the 7T was revealed at a major event in India, the 7T Pro phones were unveiled at an event in London.

Here’s what you need to know about the two new OnePlus 7T Pro phones.

You’ll instantly recognize the OnePlus 7T Pro, as it’s almost identical to the OnePlus 7 Pro, announced during the first half of the year. It has a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED touchscreen on the front, which is subtly curved down the sides for an attractive, modern profile. The screen has a 3120 x 1440 pixel resolution and the all-important 90Hz refresh rate for super-smooth scrolling.

While the screen is the same as that on the OnePlus 7 Pro, the processor has been upgraded to the Snapdragon 855 Plus, and is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of memory. This is the only configuration available to buy from OnePlus this time, with the company taking the sensible decision to simplify the range. It does come in a new color called haze blue, though. Under the screen is a fingerprint sensor for security.

How about the camera? There are three lenses on the back, in a vertically stacked central orientation, and the primary lens is a 48-megapixel IMX586 sensor with an f/1.6 aperture, plus optical and electronic stabilization (OIS and EIS). The ultrawide lens has a 117-degree field of vision, 16-megapixels, and an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 8-megapixel telephoto lens also has OIS and an f/2.4 aperture. The selfie camera is inside a pop-up module, and has EIS, 16-megapixels, and an f/2.0 aperture.

OnePlus’ Nightscape feature has been extended to work with the wide-angle camera, there’s a new macro mode, a slow-motion video mode that shoots at 960fps, and a hybrid image stabilization (HIS) feature that uses both OIS and EIS for super-smooth video.

What else? The 4,085mAh battery is recharged with OnePlus’s Warp Charge 30T technology, which will see 70% charge reached in only 30 minutes. A full charge will come in about an hour. There’s face unlock, UFS 3.0 for fast app access, Android 10 with OxygenOS 10.1 installed, Bluetooth 5.0, dual stereo speakers, and Dolby Atmos support.

The second collaboration device from OnePlus’ partnership with McLaren, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is considerably more eye-catching than its predecessor, and won’t be mistaken for the regular OnePlus 7T Pro either. Made with a gloss back finish, there’s an intricate pattern underneath the surface for a unique style.

This is matched with flashes of papaya orange, a classic McLaren color that’s found on the phone’s body, around the camera lens, and even on the braided charging cable. Inside the box is a case for the phone that’s covered in soft Alcantara material for a sporty, luxurious feel. Even the box itself is special, with more orange and even a carbon fiber finish. Switch the McLaren Edition phone on, and it has a special dark McLaren theme active, with custom icons, wallpaper, and color scheme.

What about the phone? It’s almost exactly the same as the OnePlus 7T Pro, apart from a boost to 12GB of RAM. You’ll want to buy this for the unique style, and for anyone who loves limited editions, or is a fan of McLaren, it will be extremely tempting.

Price and availability

The OnePlus 7T Pro will not be released in the U.S., but will come to the U.K., Europe, China, Hong Kong, and India. The standard OnePlus 7T Pro comes at 700 British pounds, which equates to around $870. The McLaren edition is a bit more expensive at 800 pounds, or around $995.

The OnePlus 11 is launching on February 7 with two fan-favorite features
Event teaser for The OnePlus 11 "Cloud 11" event.

OnePlus is planning on starting the new year off with a bang by revealing the much-anticipated OnePlus 11. Launching on February 7 during the company's annual first-quarter showcase, the OnePlus 11 boasts the return of two user-favorite features: the company's signature alert slider and Hasselblad photography integration — both of which were absent on the OnePlus 10T.

Although OnePlus is still keeping most of the official details about the OnePlus 11 under wraps until February, there have been plenty of leaks and rumors surrounding the phone — and they've painted it as a worthy successor to the OnePlus 10T, the company's most recent flagship.

OnePlus 11’s controversial design returns in new ‘official’ renders
Renders of the OnePlus 11 in black and green.

The OnePlus 11 Pro was slated to be the next OnePlus flagship for early 2023. However, as per a new report from Gadget Gang (in association with reliable tipster @OnLeaks), the leaked OnePlus 11 Pro in the past is in fact, the OnePlus 11, which will be the flagship for early 2023. Apart from that, we also have our first look at the 'official' renders of the next OnePlus flagship. It looks like the company is iterating the design from its 2022 designs, with controversial results.

According to the latest renders, OnePlus is taking inspiration from Samsung of 2021 by extending the camera module to the side of the OnePlus 11. The new design is likely to stir some debate around the looks of the device. Meanwhile, the Hasselblad logo is now in the middle of the camera module, which looks odd. The optics include a three-lens camera system accompanied by an LED flash. The OnePlus 11 is said to be made available in Forest Emerald and Volcanic Black color options. As per the renders, the back seems to have a matte finish.

The Pixel 7 accidentally killed the OnePlus 10T — and it isn’t pretty
The OnePlus 10T and Google Pixel 7's camera modules.

The OnePlus 10T is a strange phone, and I didn’t really take to it when I first reviewed it at the end of September. As I prepared to revisit the 10T to see if time had been kind to it, I had to swap my SIM card from a phone that’s going to cause the OnePlus phone more problems: The Google Pixel 7.

After using them sid by side for a day, the question becomes is there anything about the OnePlus 10T that should convince you to buy it over the Pixel 7?
