OnePlus has been a renowned name in the smartphone market for years now. The brand is famous for its premium built quality and aggressive price range. Okay! Now, in recent years Oneplus has increased its prices gradually. But I think each penny you invest in your new OnePlus device is worth it. This brand is always my favourite premium category smartphone. I like their OxygenOS skin based on Android.
OnePlus finally started pushing their new major OS update, OxygenOS 12, for the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro based on Android 12. The update is now started rolling around the globe.
As per some reports, it is said to be rolling as a stable build with OxygenOS 12 for users around the globe. With this, OnePlus has included the latest October 2022 Security patch, which fixes many security bugs and vulnerabilities.
Being the 12th instalment of the Android series, Android 12 creates a lot of hype with its new features, design, UI improvements, and many more. According to the official, they plan to release the stable version of their latest OS update anywhere soon, in August or October. Meanwhile, every big smartphone venture has already started rolling out their OS skin based on Android 12 for their flagship segments. Previously, Google stated that this update would be one of Google’s most prominent changes ever made in their OS. This is the main reason behind the hype created for the upcoming updates.
Features of OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro: Device Overview
Both the device is the best at their time and have some powerful and notable features like the 7T has a big 6.55 inches fluid AMOLED, 90Hz, HDR10+ display. At the same time, 7T Pro comes with a much bigger 6.67 inches fluid AMOLED, 90Hz, HDR10+ screen corning Gorilla Glass 5. Talking about gaming performance, both the devices are compiled with Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855+ (7 nm) processor, which means you never have to settle while gaming.
Now, from the processor, let’s fly towards the memory. First, both the 7T come in two variants: 128GB/8GB RAM and 256GB/8GB RAM with UFS 3.0. Whereas 7T Pro has also come in two variants, i.e., 256GB/8GB RAM, and 256GB/12GB RAM along UFS 3.0. However, in 7T, you’ll get a 3800mAh battery that I think is not appropriate, but yes again, you’ll get a 30T Warp charger out of the box that covers its small battery issue. On the other hand, 7T Pro has a big 4085mAh battery which is decent, along with a 30W Warp charger out of the box.
So, as you noticed, the specs are decent, and when you compare these specs with the minimum requirement to run Android 12, it is clear that it is not only Android 12. But, it can handle Android 13 as well. So, don’t worry about the update, as you’ll for sure get the update, but you have to wait for a few months.
