Here's how OnePlus 7 compares with the OnePlus 6T
OnePlus recently unveiled its latest flagship handsets at an event in Bengaluru last night. And, while the OnePlus 7 Pro stole all the headlines as the event’s showstopper, it’s the OnePlus 7 that looks to replace the OnePlus 6T as the company’s latest flagship killer.
So, let’s take a look at its previous launch OnePlus 6T and see how it stacks up against the similarly priced OnePlus 7.
On the outside, the OnePlus 7 looks very much like the 6T, but the specs on the inside tell a very different story.
The Snapdragon 855 chipset on the OnePlus 7 offers significant gains in performance and power efficiency as compared to the Snapdragon 845 SoC on the 6T. Then there’s the matter of storage quality. The OnePlus 7 uses UFS 3.0 flash storage as compared to the 2.1 UFS standard utilised on the 6T, only adding to the overall performance of the phone.
Moving on to the camera, and you’ll find a dual rear camera setup on both handsets. However, the OnePlus 7 sports a 48-megapixel primary lens with f/1.7 aperture and a 6-megapixel telephoto lens, while the OnePlus 6T rocks a 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 20-megapixel secondary lens with f/1.7 aperture. Despite both cameras looking pretty solid on paper, the OnePlus 7 features a few enhancements in the camera processing software with HDR+ and super-resolution to improve image details.
More or less the same
In terms of design, battery, and display, both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 6T boast similar specs on paper. Although you might see more battery life on the OnePlus 7 considering the Snapdragon 855 chipset is built on the 7-nm architecture. The OnePlus 7 is similarly priced as the 6T with the base variant coming in at Rs 32,999.But to our liking there just isn’t enough in the OnePlus 7 to set it apart as a 2019 flagship. Despite having a clear edge over the 6T in camera performance and power, the OnePlus 7 looks and feels just like the OnePlus 6T. What you’re getting seems more like a smartphone with a little too much and that looks like a last-generation flagship with next-generation hardware.
