Yesterday, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7T series in London, while the normal 7T has already been announced in India, the OnePlus 7T Pro and the McLaren Edition were due to be announced properly.
Previously, Amazon had decided to list the phone early, which is not unusual, they did the same with the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro. This had confirmed much of what we knew about the 7T Pro. However, UK pricing and details of the McLaren Edition were new.
Price & Availability
With all the leaks and the OnePlus 7T Pro staying almost the same apart from the chipset, the biggest news was perhaps the pricing. Thankfully OnePlus stay highly competitive.
Unlike other brands, you have a nice simple product lineup
- OnePlus 7T with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will be £549 and available on the 17th of October.
- The OnePlus 7T Pro with 8GB and 256GB stays the same price as the older model at just £699 and is also available on the 17th
- The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren edition with 12GB and 256GB will be £799 and available on the 5th of November, a little more affordable than the Huawei Porsche editions.
OnePlus 7T Pro
The OnePlus 7T has already been announced in India, so we knew everything about that apart from the price.
The OnePlus 7T Pro is almost identical, however, the chipset has been refreshed to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus, giving you a small uplift in CPU performance and around a 14% increase in GPU.
The low RAM and Storage options have been removed, so there is no 6GB/128GB option anymore. There is just one option of 8GB and 256GB.
The battery has had a small increase from 4000mAh to 4085mAh.
While this may not be the most exciting of releases, with them keeping the pricing the same you are getting more phone for your money, which is always a good thing.
OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition
The McLaren Edition is the same as the OnePlus 7T Pro but in a more attractive design and increased RAM and Storage with 12GB/256GB. With it only costing £100 extra I think this is a reasonable price.
