Last month, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7T, which was a slightly refreshed version of the OnePlus 7 that debuted earlier this year. At the time, there was no sign of the rumored OnePlus 7T Pro, even though we had seen images and benchmarks of the device. Today, the OnePlus 7T Pro has been officially revealed, and it is pretty much what we were all expecting. The OnePlus 7T Pro continues to impress with its gorgeous 6.67-inch (3120x1440) 90Hz notch-less display. Also making a return is the pop-up selfie camera, which is missing from the OnePlus 7T, along with a vertically-arranged triple-camera setup on the back.

Over that last few years, OnePlus has earned a reputation for offering well-appointed, high-performance mobile devices that compete with other contemporary flagships, but with highly aggressive pricing. When we looked at the OnePlus 7 Pro back in June, or the OnePlus 6T before that, we declared both handsets leaders, in terms of value and performance. With the upcoming OnePlus 7T, which is due to start shipping in just a few days, OnePlus is trying to capture that status again. Looking at the OnePlus 7T’s list of features and hardware specifications, it appears to be a premium Android phone in every sense of the word. The device is built upon Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855+ mobile... Read more...
We're barely a week removed from the launch of the OnePlus 7T and we're already hearing word of that device's successor. In fact, we have actually have renders of what the device will potentially look like thanks to a well-known gadget leaker. The latest renders come courtesy of OnLeaks, which claims to have inside information on what the OnePlus 8 will look when it is released next year. The device actually looks largely like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but without the over-the-top pop-up selfie cameras. Likely in a move to reduce complexity (and potentially reclaim some internal space), the OnePlus 8 will allegedly instead feature a hole punch cutout in the top left-hand corner of... Read more...
After plenty of teasing and specs leaks, the OnePlus TV has finally been revealed for all to see. OnePlus is looking to shakeup the TV market in much the same way that it did with smartphones by delivering hardware that is big on features, while not draining your wallet (at least compared to the competition). The first entry in the family measures 55-inches across, and it uses a QLED panel as we previously reported. It features a near bezel-free design that looks good to our eyes. In a shift from more traditional televisions in this space, the OnePlus TV takes a different approach with respect to its speaker arrangement. Instead of having fixed speakers, the OnePlus TV features... Read more...
Somewhere along the line, smartphones went from being pricey at the upper echelon, to downright expensive, requiring users to pay through the nose for the highest end handsets. OnePlus has always been a refreshing change of pace in the top tier smartphone sweepstakes. Its new OnePlus 7T flagship phone carries on that tradition by assembling some of the best components in a package that is comparatively affordable. By that we mean the new OnePlus 7T starts at $599. Yes, that's not exactly chump change, but you could spend in the neighborhood of twice as much as some other flagship phones, when decked out with the most RAM and storage available. What's remarkable about the $599 price point is OnePlus... Read more...
Android 10 was released on September 3rd and has slowly been released to a handful of devices. Now OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 users can download Android 10 too. OnePlus just released their OxygenOS 10.0 based on Android 10 and it comes with all the latest feature updates on under the hood. OnePlus’ OxygenOS 10.0 features a new UI design and more control over location permissions, a greater variety of customization options, and refreshed gaming experience. Users will be able to customize the clock style, fingerprint animation, and wallpaper on their lock screen and choose from three preset display themes. You will also be able to learn information about your music, calendar, or local... Read more...
When it comes to unreleased smartphones, leaks are inevitable prior to launch. OnePlus hasn’t been shy about revealing images, videos and even specifications for its unreleased smartphones prior to launch (on its own terms), and it is at it again with the upcoming OnePlus 7T. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau provided two shots of the rear of the OnePlus 7T accompanied by a few design sketches of the smartphones. On the back, we can clearly see a black circular pod that houses three camera sensors arranged horizontally. Below the camera area is a circular LED flash. According to a recent leak via Twitter, it's rumored that the three cameras will consist of a 48MP wide angle sensor, 16MP ultra-wide-angle... Read more...
We've seen renders and real-life images of a new OnePlus 7T Pro that is allegedly coming later this year, but it appears that OnePlus has another smartphone in the works as well. OnePlus is known for packing a lot of features into its phones for hundreds less than the competition, and this new phone is confirmed to be cheaper than the OnePlus 7 Pro while keeping one of its defining features. The current OnePlus 7 Pro starts at $669, but OnePlus CEO Pete Lau says that this new device will be even more affordable. He didn't get into specifics, but maybe we'll see a device that dips back below the $600 price point? Lau did confirm, however, that even though this device will be cheaper,... Read more...
OnePlus has made a name for itself for its steadfast mission to deliver flagship smartphones to customers with value pricing. The most recent example of this is the OnePlus 7 Pro, which offers Snapdragon 855 muscle and a notch-less display for hundreds less than the competition from Apple and Samsung. One other “plus” of going with OnePlus has been the company's close relationship with Google in getting users quick access to Android updates -- that even extends to beta versions of Android Q (now officially called Android 10). OnePlus just announced today that its OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones are getting the Android 10 Developer Preview 5, which was released a few weeks... Read more...
OnePlus is getting ready to release a pair new flagship smartphones, the OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T. These handsets have been leaked quite extensively up to this point, including some recent renders that found their way to the web, but what about the specs? Well, yet another leak claims to have the skinny on the hardware and features that will make the OnePlus 7T series tick. According to Twitter user and self-proclaimed "tech enthusiast" Ishan Agarwal, the OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T will launch on September 26 in India. He then goes on to list a set of specs without differentiating between the two models, though if we had to guess, the processor and display (at minimum) point to the OnePlus... Read more...
Sprint has announced that it has turned on its 5G network in three new markets. The new markets include New York City, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. Those cities are now live in addition to the previously launched cities including Kansas City, Atlanta, Houston, and Dallas-Fort Worth. Sprint says that its "true 5G" network in the new cities is running Nokia 64T64R 5G Massive MIMO radios. Those radios have a split mode that allows Sprint to offer LTE Advanced and 5G New Radio (NR) service on the 2.5GHz mid-band spectrum. Those radios are being deployed on the existing 4G cell sites to provide a nearly identical footprint for the 2.5GHz LTE and 5G NR coverage. As the Sprint 5G network... Read more...
Barring a surprise, OnePlus is likely to dish up a new line of smartphones this fall, presumably the OnePlus 7T series. As such, the leaks have already started. One of them came all the way back in December, and as it turns out, that may have been an accurate photo of the OnePlus 7T after all. How so? Well, let's start with the initial leak. Self-proclaimed "tech enthusiast" Ishan Agarwal had posted an image to Twitter that he said was of a OnePlus device in the prototype/designing stage. "It is not final but this is probably how the device may end up looking," Agarwal wrote at the time. Check it out... EXCLUSIVE! Here's your first look at an upcoming OnePlus Device I don't know much about. This... Read more...
We're beginning to learn a bit more about the OnePlus TV, which is set to go up against likes of Samsung and Sony in the marketplace, albeit hopefully at lower prices. A OnePlus exec has now confirmed specs for at least one model in the new smart TV product family. According to the tweet from Akis Evangelidis, there will be a 55-inch model with QLED technology (it is not known is QLED tech will proliferate throughout the entire lineup). QLED has been championed by Samsung in its high-end television, and TCL has recently jumped onboard with its 8-Series Roku TVs. You can read more about QLED in our in-depth article right here. Although the 55-inch model has now been confirmed... Read more...
OnePlus is getting ready to launch a line of big screen televisions, and after a year of collecting feedback from its users, has decided on a name: OnePlus TV. The company decided to keep the branding simple, though the decision was "harder than you could imagine" due to receiving "so many creative names" since kicking off its TV naming competition. "Yes, we are going to call our very first smart TV product 'OnePlus TV'—simple yet to-the-point—as we believe there's no other name that can best represent our value, vision and pride than naming it with our own brand," a community consultant stated on the OnePlus forums. Source: OnePlus OnePlus also designed a logo, shown above. The logo... Read more...
Sprint is going all-in with 5G wireless connectivity, and has announced that it will make available a fourth 5G-compatible device for its network. The fourth-place wireless carrier – which will soon merge with third-place T-Mobile – already sells the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ and the HTC 5G Hub. The fourth device will be an unnamed smartphone from OnePlus. The most obvious device that Sprint could introduce is the already announced OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G looks largely identical to its OnePlus 7 Pro counterpart, including its Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6.67-inch 90Hz display, 4000 mAh battery and 256GB of internal storage. The primary... Read more...
Wait a second, didn't OnePlus just release the OnePlus 7 Pro? Well, things move quickly in the smartphone realm, and OnePlus is an OEM that iterates on a lightning-fast schedule with new devices. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we're hearing word of an upcoming OnePlus 7T Pro that could be released before the year is up. Images of this alleged OnePlus 7T Pro were posted to the Chinese social media website Weibo, and don't really give much away in terms of appearances. From what we can tell, not much (if anything) has been changed with regards to its display or the pop-up selfie camera mechanism (which is wicked cool to see in operation). Most of the design details surrounding the phone... Read more...
Issues with batteries inside smartphones and other tech devices that pose a fire hazard are nothing new. Samsung has had problems with its flagship Galaxy Note 7 device catching fire; Apple has been associated with battery fires also, most recently with the 2015 MacBook Pro. Budget smartphone maker OnePlus has been called out in India for a smartphone that allegedly caught fire while it was sitting unplugged and turned off. The owner of the smartphone claims that it caught fire at about 3:15 am on July 3 as it sat unused. The smartphone is said to have been sitting in an air-conditioned room when the user woke up to a burning smell. The user alleges that fumes were pouring out of the device,... Read more...
We have no qualms recommending the OnePlus 7 Pro as it currently exists—it combines a killer display with a 90Hz refresh rate, with high-end hardware and excellent camera performance, all at a price point that is easier to swallow than some competing flagship Android phones.  As good as the phone already is, however, an upcoming firmware update is going to add some nifty new features. The feature we are most excited about is video recording support getting added to the ultra-wide camera. This could be a game changer for some folks, and has been a widely requested upgrade. For OnePlus 7 Pro owners who have been pining for ultra-wide video recording, the OnePlus team confirmed that the... Read more...
The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the most highly anticipated Android phones to hit the market this year for a number of reasons. At first blush, it was about a few stand-out specs. The phone's 6.7-inch display supports a speedy 90Hz refresh rate and a super-tight 3120x1440 QHD+ resolution in punchy, HDR10+ certified OLED technology. The new OnePlus phone is also powered by the fastest Qualcomm chip on the market currently, the Snapdragon 855, but it's also backed up but up to 12GB of RAM as well as up to 256GB of snappy new UFS 3.0 based Flash storage. Oh, and the aforementioned display is not marred by either a notch, nor a bullet-hole punch-out for its front facing camera -- nothing, nada, just... Read more...
A new color option is available for the OnePlus 7 Pro, just do not call it gold. OnePlus is calling it "Almond," and announced on Twitter earlier today that it is coming soon. How soon? A couple of weeks, apparently—the new OnePlus 7 Pro Almond is available to order now starting at $699, and is listed as shipping "within 14 days." Thoughtfully designed and expertly crafted. Embrace the elegance of the #OnePlus7Pro Almond soon. pic.twitter.com/orTDo8zpmb — OnePlus (@oneplus) June 11, 2019 As of this moment, the OnePlus 7 Pro in Almond is only available with 8GB of RAM paired with 256GB of onboard storage. It is an interesting arrangement of colors and specs, consisting of the following... Read more...
Consumers all around the world have adopted affordable smartphones by the masses as the price of high-end devices pushes ever higher. One of the brands seeing demand increase is OnePlus, and this month it launched its new flagship device called the OnePlus 7 Pro. Almost as soon as users got their devices in hand, reports began to flood in on Reddit and OnePlus' support forums that the smartphone was suffering from a bizarre phantom touch issue. The issue presents as the screen of the device randomly responding to touches that aren't there that some have dubbed "phantom" or "ghost" touches. Users on the OnePlus support forum have been running the CPU-Z app on their devices to see if their smartphone... Read more...
Biometric security measures are improving all the time, though they are not infallible. This is demonstrated on the recently launched OnePlus 7 Pro. It has a fingerprint sensor that is embedded in the full-front display, and with a little bit of glue and a few minutes of time, it can be easily thwarted. Well, sort of. The process itself is rather simple. It basically entails creating a rudimentary mold of a fingerprint using aluminum foil, a dab of hot glue, and a little bit of Elmer's glue. It's a cheap hack, in other words, albeit an effective one on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Incidentally, the same method was proven to work on the previous generation OnePlus 6T. YouTube channel Max Tech demonstrated... Read more...
