The OnePlus 7T isn’t the only new OnePlus phone that’s coming to T-Mobile in the second half of the year.
T-Mobile will be the exclusive U.S. carrier for the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition. It’ll support T-Mo’s 600MHz 5G coverage, making it the second phone launching this year to do so, with the first being the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. The OP7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition will also work on T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network with “all the latest speed boosting technologies”.
The launch date and price for the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition will be announced later this year.
T-Mo also confirmed today that it plans to cover 200 million people with 5G using 600MHz by the end of 2019.
In addition to having a mouthful of a name, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition has a pretty high-end spec list. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 855+ processor that’s paired with 12GB of RAM, and its 6.67-inch 3120×1440 AMOLED screen has a 90Hz refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Inside is a 4085mAh battery along with support for Warp Charge 30T fast charging that can get you from 0 to 68 percent in 30 minutes.
There’s a triple rear camera setup on the OP7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition that includes a 48MP main camera with OIS, EIS, and an f/1.6 aperture, an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x zoom, and a 16MP ultra-wide camera with 117-degree field of view. Also included is a 16MP selfie cam that pops up from the body of the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition.
Rounding out the phone’s specs are dual stereo speakers, USB-C, 256GB of storage, and Android 10 running below OnePlus’s OxygenOS user interface. Also worth noting are orange accents on the phone’s backside, around its rear camera housing, and on its alert slider, which are meant to be reminiscent of Papaya Orange, the signature color of supercar maker McLaren.
Since T-Mo appears to have discontinued sales of the OnePlus 7 Pro, it’s nice to see that the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition will be coming to fill that hole. We don’t yet know how much it’ll cost, but T-Mobile describes it as a “cost effective 5G phone”. While it’s not likely to be a cheap device, it could have a lower price than the Note 10+ 5G, which is priced at $1,299.99 from Verizon.
