Although OnePlus news of late has mostly been about its upcoming smart TV, it could still have or two smartphones prepared for this year. Identical to in the past three years, it could have OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro in the works, though it’s still unclear how much the two will differ from the early 2019 flagships. Renders of the smartphone have now surfaced, and while it could seem to confirm rumors of triple camera setup, OnePlus appears to have taken a rather odd route to get there.
When consumers look at it from the again, this OnePlus 7T is not like any OnePlus you’ve laid eyes on. For one, it has a round camera bump much like the Moto Z series or the upcoming Huawei Mate 30. Strangely, however, the association of the sensors in that round bump is each unconventional and probably inefficient.
All three cameras are arranged horizontally in a row above the LED flash. That means three sensors are squeezed collectively and cramped for space. The top area is just about unused and wasted.
The front is much less perplexing and more disappointing. Nothing has changed here, from the small waterdrop notch to the flat screen. If something, this hints that the OnePlus 7T might stick near the OnePlus 7’s design and that there shall be OnePlus 7T Pro to supply curved edges instead. The one other key difference known for now is the switch to a Snapdragon 855 Plus. Given OnePlus’ still debatable performance within the camera department, the addition of a 3rd sensor may not be all that compelling. OnePlus fans may not have to wait too long to find out with IFA 2019 just a few days away.
