Also, this would even help those who are confused whether they should upgrade to OnePlus 7 from OnePlus 6T or not.
The upcoming OnePlus 7 is going to be a part of the OnePlus 7 series. There won’t be a single smartphone this time. While OnePlus 7 Pro will get the biggest of upgrades and features, the regular OnePlus 7 will come with a few minimal upgrades only.
The company has already been teasing the OnePlus 7 Pro features, while the regular model has hardly any mention.
This time, the company has put its main focus on OnePlus 7 Pro. The pro model is going to be costlier and will be priced quite high compared to OnePlus 6T. So, don’t expect a lot out of the regular OnePlus 7.
The Same Display
OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 7 will share similar displays. The upcoming regular OnePlus 7 smartphone will come with a water drop styled notch and an in-display fingerprint sensor. So, there won’t be any upgrade in terms of display size or quality.
The company may though add up a few more features, but essentially it’s expected to remain the same.
The new OnePlus will come with the current best Qualcomm chip, Snapdragon 855. The OnePlus runs on the old Qualcomm flagship chip, the Snapdragon 845. Again, you will hardly face any hassle in terms of daily usage and performance. Both are top-rated chips, and Snapdragon 845 still has a lot of power to pull off the hard tasks.
OnePlus 6T and the upcoming OnePlus 7 both is and will be capable of running all the heavy games and hardcore tasks with ease.
The Same Software
The upcoming OnePlus 7 series will run on the same Oxygen OS software based on the Android 9.0 Pie, and not the new Android Q. It’s the same as the OnePlus 6T. The smartphone though may come with priority access to Android Q, but OnePlus 6T too will soon get the full version once it’s out.
The next version of full Android OS will be available on both OnePlus phones in a few months.
With Android Q, the OnePlus smartphones will be able to run the new updates with options like gesture navigation, 3D touch and more. L
Though, by the time all the full version features are available, the OnePlus 7T will arrive by then.
OnePlus 6T currently comes with a dual rear camera setup at the back featuring a 16MP primary Sony IMX 519 sensor coupled with a 20 MP camera Exmor RS depth sensor, capable of supporting a resolution of 4616 x 3464 pixels.
The regular OnePlus 7 model is again expected to come with a dual rear camera setup including the much-popular 48MP lens as its primary sensor.
Though, there are reports that only OnePlus 7 Pro may come with the 48MP lens only.
If OnePlus is not making any major change, there won’t be any visible difference between the quality of images clicked using the new OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 6T.
The new OnePlus 7 series is going to be costlier. OnePlus 7 Pro will be quite expensive and even the regular OnePlus 7 may touch the 40,000 rupees mark in India. On the other hand, OnePlus 6T currently is available at a discounted price under Rs 35,000 making it a value proposition.
It does make a great buy at the moment, as OnePlus 6T won’t be such a huge upgrade over the regular OnePlus 7.
The current OnePlus 6T still has a lot in it to beat some of the bestselling premium flagships in the market.
The OnePlus 7 regular variant may see a slight rise in cost or may come at the same pricing as it’s current flagship pricing in India, but OnePlus 7 Pro is going to cost a lot high compared to its previous pricings.
