Instead of vertically aligned camera sensors, the new 7T series is expected to come with a circular module with LED flash.

It is expected to come in two variants-- one a generic OnePlus 7T and another top-end 7T Pro. Both are expected to come with almost the same specifications except for screen, battery and telephoto camera.

OnePlus 7T is likely to come with a 6.55-inch screen (2400x1080p) having a pixel density of 402 ppi (pixels per inch) and a 3,800mAh battery 

The OnePlus 7T Pro is said to flaunt a slightly bigger 6.65-inch display (3100x1440p) with a pixel density of 516ppi and a 4,085mAh cell.

Both the OnePlus 7T series variants are expected to sport a Fluid AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, HDR 10 support, and an in-display fingerprint sensor at the base. On the back, they will have a glass-based shell with a matte finish.

Under-the-hood, it is expected come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 plus octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB/512GB (OnePlus 7T Pro only) storage and a 16MP (F2.0 aperture) front-camera with Electronic Image Stabilisation and also support Warp 30T fast charging.

On the back, OnePlus 7T Pro will house a 48MP (F1.6) sensor with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and will be supported by an 8MP Telephoto(F2.4) with 3x zoom and an ultra-wide 16MP (F2.2) with 120-degree field of view.

OnePlus 7T too is expected to have the same primary and ultra-wide sensors seen in the 7T Pro but will have 12MP Telephoto camera (F2.2) with 2x zoom.
Both the phones' camera is said to have Macro mode for close-up shots, Nightscape mode, super slow-motion 720p HD recording at 960fps (frames per second) speed.

Also, it can be noted that the OnePlus 7T series will be the first-ever phone to come with Android 10 out-of-the-box. Unlike the upcoming Pixel 4 (launching on October 15), which will run pure Vanilla Android, the OnePlus mobile will have a tweaked version and will be called as OxygenOS 10.

Depending on the  RAM+Storage configuration, the OnePlus 7T and the 7T Pro are likely to be priced anywhere between Rs 33,000 and 58,000 similar to the current OnePlus 7 series.

Both OnePlus TV and OnePlus 7T (& 7T Pro) series will be available exclusively on Amazon India.
