The OnePlus 7T Pro for the first time features a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. It also has a 90Hz refresh rate that offers a smooth experience compared to 60Hz in most phones, which is a treat for gamers.

The earpiece grill on the top doubles up as a speaker. It runs Android 10 with OxygenOS 10 with a slew of features including screen recorder, Zen Mode that will run for 20 minutes so you can receive only emergency calls and the company has promised India-only features such as smart SMS are coming soon. 

It is powered by Snapdragon 855+ chipset under the hood, 8GB LPDDR4 RAM with RAM Boost feature and new Fanatic mode that blocks all notification & calls, restricts background to boost the game and stop secondary SIM to enhance the network.

In this device, the 16-megapixel front camera is placed on the notch featuring a Sony IMX471 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and 1.0μm pixel size.  One the back there are cameras stacked horizontally, 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with a 7-element plastic lens with an aperture of f/1.6, OIS and EIS support, a 16-megapixel 117° Ultra Wide Angle Lens with an aperture of f/2.2 aperture and a 12 MP telephoto camera, producing 2x optical zoom at an aperture of f/2.2.

With OnePlus 7T, you can now shoot ‘Super Macro’, from as little as 2.5 centimeters away. The Nightscape mode is also available on both the primary lens and the ultra-wide-angle lens. For smoother videos, OnePlus features hybrid image stabilization (HIS) that combines both EIS and OIS. 

OnePlus has retained the alert slider that is present on the right side. You can see the antenna bands since the phone has a metal frame. On the bottom, there is a dual SIM slot, USB Type-C port, primary microphone, and a speaker grill, so it offers stereo audio, and also comes with Dolby Atmos.
