OnePlus 7T, OnePlus TV launch time, how to livestream
The OnePlus 7T and OnePlus TV launch event will begin at 7:00 pm IST on Thursday. The event will be streamed live on the OnePlus India YouTube channel.
OnePlus 7T has been doing the rounds on the rumour mill for some time. OnePlus, keeping up with tradition, had released renders and teasers of its new device ahead of the official launch. The last renders released by the company showed a matte finish glass back with gradient colour and a circular cut-out with three sensors.
Maintaining its flagship status, the OnePlus 7T is likely to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor with at least 8GB of RAM. The device has been teased to run Android 10 out of the box. The OnePlus 7T will also retain the fast 90Hz AMOLED Fluid Display from the last generation. As for the OnePlus 7T Pro, we know that it will have the same back finish gradient colour scheme, 90Hz screen and chipset as the OnePlus 7T.
Not much is known about the price of the two smartphones. Both the OnePlus 7T-series devices might launch prices close to what OnePlus 7 and onePlus 7 Pro had at the time of their launch. This would mean OnePlus 7T Pro could be priced around Rs 48,999, while the OnePlus 7T may be launched with a price tag close to Rs 32,999. The devices will be sold through Amazon, OnePlus offline outlets and other authorised stores.
