OnePlus 7T Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro vs Huawei P30 Pro vs Galaxy Note10 Plus: New flagship king?

With the OnePlus 7T Pro, the triple camera smartphone category gets another contender.


OnePlus announced the 7T Pro, the successor to the 7 Pro, and the pro version of the recently launched OnePlus 7T (Review). It’s priced at Rs 53,999 and it starts selling on 11 October in India. The company also unveiled a McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 7T Pro with 12 GB of RAM that’s priced at Rs 58,999. Both variants of the device will go on sale on the same day.

Most of the upgrade on the 7T Pro has been under the hood which is only the mobile chipset, now packing the overclocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. The rest of the hardware is literally the same. It comes with a new fast-charging technology called Warp Charge 30T that is supposedly 23 percent faster than the previous standard. However, the upgrade is in the power brick and not in the device.

It uses the same triple-camera setup that was present on the OnePlus 7 Pro (Review). There’s the same curved AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The rest of the updates are in the software, OxygenOS 10 (based on Android 10) to be precise.

We put the OnePlus 7T Pro up against some of the existing smartphones in the market that also take advantage of the triple or more camera lenses in the flagship segment. It includes the Apple iPhone 11 Pro, Huawei P30 Pro (Review), and Samsung Galaxy Note10+ (Review). For a clearer distinction between the latest OnePlus devices, we also compared it to the 7T and 7 Pro.

Conclusion

As mentioned already, there isn’t much of a difference between the 7T Pro and the 7 Pro. With that budget, you could go with either of the two devices since the overclocked Snapdragon 855+ won’t give that much of a significant boost from the 855. You end up saving some money as well for other accessories such as a wireless headset.

The other devices in this comparison are considerably more expensive, so OnePlus has yet again nailed in the pricing department. We are yet to give a final verdict on the 7T Pro since it’s still undergoing some testing. Just like the 7 Pro, we are expecting a similar level of performance and experience on the 7T Pro.
