I’ve gained massive respect for @OnLeaks, ever since he unveiled the square camera of the iPhone 11 a long time ago, in January. Now he’s back with another major leak, even though the news isn’t quite positive. Turns out that the OnePlus 7T has just leaked and it’s got a fugly camera.
We saw a few days before, courtesy of Evan Blass a OnePlus 7T sketch with a massive round camera. That mechanism pops up again here, but this time with segments for the 3 cameras. I have a feeling that this merely the successor of the OnePlus 7 and there will also be a separate one for the OnePlus 7 Pro. Why? Because this device has a notch for the selfie camera, like the OP7.
Together with these renders we also learn that OnePlus will launch a OnePlus 7T McLaren “Senna” Edition phone, even though there aren’t many details about it. It’s funny how you can spoil the design of a phone with just a few lines. I’m talking about the lines drawn between the cameras, shaped like triangles. Also, the horizontal camera orientation and its placement may actually get in the way of your fingers.
At least we have an upgrade from the dual camera of the OnePlus 7, probably with a wide angle shooter added to the main 48 MP camera and Bokeh camera. The source of the renders also talks about a 6.5 inch diagonal and the following measurements: 161.2 x 74.5 x 8.3 mm. The ports and buttons are also the same as before and at the bottom you can find the USB-C port and loudspeaker grille, plus the SIM card tray.
Obviously, we’re getting an Optic AMOLED Full HD+ screen panel and also obviously we’re upgrading to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor. 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage are also a given here. Not much else to say, other than the fact that I hope renders are wrong, since this design feels dated.
