At September 26th launch event in India, OnePlus announced an all-new OnrPlus 7T smartphone and OnePlus TV. These were expected announcements but there is one more thing everyone expected that did not make an appearance. It is the OnePlus 7T Pro smartphone and OnePlus did not mention even a single word about the phone. But now, we finally have a better idea of the device.
OnePlus India has tweeted an official teaser suggesting that the OnePlus 7T Pro will be launched on October 10th. It tweeted, "Thought we were done? Oh we're just getting started. Watch out for something special | Oct 10." It is accompanied by an image with a smartphone design outline and a text, "OnePlus 7T Series Launch Event".
The date in the tweet is the same one when OnePlus will hold an event in the United Kingdom for the OnePlus 7T global launch. It seems like it will use the same stage to unveil the OnePlus 7T Pro. If you still have doubts, a recently spotted HDFC Bank listing on its Smart Buy web page should make things more clear. It listed various launch offers on new OnePlus products including the OnePlus 7T Pro. The page has now been updated to omit the yet-to-be-launched flagship but thanks to screenshots taken by netizens, we know what it actually mentioned.
As you can see, there is Rs. 3,000 instant discount offer for buyers of the new smartphoen. But the more important thing to note here is that the OnePlus 7T Pro is listed to go on sale starting October 10th via OnePlus India's online store and offline stores. It is said to become available on Amazon India on October 15th i.e five days later. This is strange considering that OnePlus lets Amazon India sell new product launches first but this time around, there seems to be a change in the strategy.
Lastly, well-known tipster Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) has tweeted high-quality renders showing the OnePlus 7T Pro from the front and the back. The phone looks exactly like the OnePlus 7 Pro in terms of design and even the rear camera setup alignment. The biggest difference is the new Haze Blue color variant which is similar to the Nebula Blue color option from the company. He has also shared images of alleged official OnePlus 7T Pro cases named Karbon Bumper, Nylon Bumper, Karbon Protective, and Sandstone.
