T-Mobile will launch OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition later this year


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.

    After I dump At&t and get T-mobile this will be the phone i will get on T-Mobile.

  • auser72

    Best news I’ve seen in a while… I might just upgrade my SG 8+

  • Jon

    And still no wireless charging

    • Jim Mill

      So why use wireless charging I mean it’s a nice feature but I don’t want to pay for it cuz when I not using my phone I’m usually going to sleep and it’s charging take care less I’d rather and put the money in something else but I get it if that’s your thing

    • g2a5b0e

      Wireless charging is nice, but it’s far from a deal breaker for me.

  • Bailey

    Will this be priced at 999.00? I was hoping no more than 799.00.

    • Nate

      Well, at the launch event, they noted it was 799 pounds so wherever that ends up being in US dollars is what it should be. Unless the 5G radio jacks up the price.

      • g2a5b0e

        The 7T Pro was roughly 750 Euro and the McLaren was 850 Euro, so I suspect that the 5G McLaren will be at least $900.

  • Nate

    Nice! Sign me up.

    I have the OnePlus 7 Pro. Fantastic phone. Other than 5G, I’m not sure the OP7TPME packs enough over the OnePlus 7 Pro to justify an upgrade, but if you don’t have a OnePlus 7 Pro, this seems like a no-brainer to purchase.

    • Peter Smith

      Yeah I have my 7Pro too and it doeesn’t seem like a real upggrade from what we have. Butttttttttt………that color and theme kinda sways me bit.

  • Phil7474

    Interesting. I wish it had IP68 and Dolby Atmos to take advantage of the stereo speakers. Until now I didn’t have a reason to upgrade for my S9+

    • SuperSt0rm

      7 pro had Dolby Atmos so I imagine this would.

    • Android_God

      Dolby Atmos is doing nothing on a that is a complete and total gimmick. your phone is not powerful enough to bounce noise off of the ceiling

    • Kaulana1989

      It has Dolby Atmos

  • Jay Holm

    200 million covered with 600mhz 5G by the end of 2019…so their just going to flick the switch on a whole bunch of markets sometime in the next two months?

    • arandomperson7

      I worked in a TMobile store for 4 years. As of June this year (when I left) I was told by corporate reps that the hardware behind 600 mhz was 5g ready and it would just need a software update to go live. So basically yes, they are going to flip a switch and it goes live.

      • Jay Holm

        Do you happen to know anything about the Houston market, or Matagorda County here in Texas?

        • arandomperson7

          Sorry I don’t, I was on the east coast.

  • argenys

    As long as there isn’t a down payment on JOD and its not more than $5/month diffrence from OP7P, I’ll likely upgrade. OP7P was turning into the first phone on JOD I owned for a year(+) since there hasn’t really been a phone that attracted me to upgrade because this one is so damn good. I’ll pay a SMALL premium to mess with the early days of 5G and the spec bump.

  • MissedCall

    Hopefully it works better than the McLaren effort in Indycar at the 500 this year.

  • none

    Now, hopefully the 5G also works on band n41, band n260, and n261. Throw in band n71 or good measure. Now you’ve got yourself a 5G phone that will be able to roam across all carriers…

    • arandomperson7

      Considering it’s a carrier variant I’d say you are asking too much.

      • none

        band n41 probably isn’t too much, seeing as a T-Mobile-Sprint merger would have New T-Mobile using both n71 and n41

  • Ver

    I wish they would make the camera a little more competitive.

    • PiCASSiMO

      Yes. I was hoping that it would be more on par with Samsung offering, if not iPhone 11 Pro capabilities. But that will have to wait to next year’s oneplus 8.

  • fasttt

    Count me in!

  • Probablynot

    Why McLaren edition, why not just the regular 7T Pro? I mean… I’m going to get it on JOD, but still. Based on UK price of the 7t pro vs the 7T in going to guess $829 to 879. Any more and it’s going to tank.

    • Status

      I mean… I’m going to get it on JOD, but still.

      You just answered your own question. If the customer is willing to pay for the more expensive version, then why not offer it as an exclusive?

      • Probablynot

        I’m an atypical customer though. I think a lot of us that read this are more knowledgeable than most and more interested in the newest tech. With JOD I get new phones at least two or three times a year… It’s been getting less and less with the large down payments though. Like this year I’m skipping the Note series, really no point in getting it when something like these 1+ are out there. A lot of ‘normies’ have never even heard of oneplus, and an 800 to $900 phone from a brand they’ve never heard of is a hard sell when you’ve got an iPhone 11 or S10 for the same price.

  • arandomperson7

    I was actually thinking of using my JOD to get the pixel 4 xl, but now that this is coming I think I’ll wait.

  • Brad

    This is what I have been waiting for. Goodbye Samsung s9! Love my 1+1 and 6t and always wanted a McLaren!
