After weeks of waiting, OnePlus has finally announced its new flagship phone, the OnePlus 7T Pro, in Europe. However, the phone doesn’t come alone. It brings along a special edition called the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition and the more affordable OnePlus 7T, the latter which already launched in India and the US last month.
OnePlus 7T Pro
The OnePlus 7T Pro has a 6.67-inch curved AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a PPI of 516 and a contrast ratio of 10000:1. There is 3D Corning Gorilla Glass on the rear and front of the device. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ processor paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 2-Lane storage. Yes, there is only one configuration available.
The OnePlus 7T Pro has triple rear cameras arranged in the same vertical fashion as the OnePlus 7 Pro. The primary sensor is a Sony IMX586 48MP f/1.6 camera with a 7P lens and OIS+EIS. It is paired with an 8MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture and 3x optical zoom. A 16MP f/2.2 ultrawide-angle camera completes the setup.
The 7T Pro can record with the ultrawide angle camera now, and Nightscape mode works with it too. Users will also be able to switch between two focal-lengths when taking portrait photos. There is an UltraShot Engine that will help you take better photos such as backlit portraits, as well as sunsets and dusk photos. The OnPlus 7T Pro also gets 2.5 cm macro photography for extreme close-up shots.

The OnePlus 7T Pro runs OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10 with lots of new features. The phone is available in a single color variant – Haze Blue.
OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition differs from the standard version based on its design. No, it doesn’t have a different shape but the finish is strikingly different.
The first thing you will notice is the papaya orange accent around the edges of the rear glass. The papaya orange accent has also been applied around the camera housing and on the Alert Slider but that isn’t all.
The area around the cameras down to the LED flash and OnePlus logo has a unique design said to be inspired by the high-performance Carbon TPT material found in McLaren’s Speedtail. It is a wavy pattern and it does stand out from the rest of the body.
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is not only different on the outside but also on the inside. It has 12GB of RAM. The rest of the specs including the storage capacity is the same as that of the standard version.
OnePlus has also added some software differences such as McLaren-inspired custom icons and wallpapers and a custom papaya orange horizon light for notifications. Yes, OnePlus has still not brought back the notification LED to its phones.
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition has a special protective case made from carbon fiber and Alcantara, the same soft fabric inside McLaren’s luxury cars and which Microsoft also uses for its Surface Laptop series. The case is included in the box.
