OnePlus released information about the OnePlus 7T slowly but surely through the past couple of weeks and the tidbits we are getting do nothing but increase everyone’s interest in the upcoming flagship, which is supposed to launch on September 26th.
More recently, the company announced that the OnePlus 7T and its Pro variant will be the first smartphones that will ship with Android 10 and Google Apps and Services installed.

“We’re thrilled to offer Android 10 for our upcoming OnePlus 7T,” OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has said. “OnePlus will be the first smartphone manufacturer to preload Android 10 with Google’s Apps and Services on their latest device. Our ‘Never Settle’ mindset ensures we are constantly seeking new ways to share the latest technology, giving our community the best ‘fast and smooth’ experience possible.”
You might argue that the Huawei Mate 30 and the Huawei Mate 30 Pro are actually the devices that offer the latest taste of Android but Huawei had to bring about the software without Google Apps and Services, which doesn’t really count. If the announcement is just a bit of shade-throwing from OnePlus, that’s up to you to decide.
The OnePlus 7T will, of course, have all the tweaks and perks of Android 10 via the OxygenOS skin which include gesture controls, Game Space, Zen Mode and more.
If the recent leaks and rumors are anything to go by the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 855+ under the hood, a triple rear camera made out of a 48MP + 16MP + 8MP sensors and 8GB of RAM. The Pro version, of course, will be somewhat larger and will have a different battery capacity, among other things.
