OnePlus has launched the OnePlus 7T Pro as an upgrade to its ultra-premium OnePlus 7 Pro that debuted in May this year. The T-variant retains the best features of its predecessor, but with remarkable improvement on the performance front with a new top-of-the-line processor and faster-charging technology.
