OnePlus 7T Kernel Sources are now available
Whether you like OnePlus as a brand and for their recent pricing strategies, or not, one cannot deny that OnePlus devices are one of the easiest-to-mod devices currently available in the market, with a thriving community existing for even older releases. OnePlus has been receptive towards the needs of the developer community, promising timely kernel source releases, among other things. OnePlus released the kernel sources of the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro shortly after their release, and the company is keeping up with the tradition with the OnePlus 7T by releasing its kernel source as well.
OxygenOS on OnePlus comes with its own thoughtful additions and features, but even then, it may not be enough for the needs of every single user. OnePlus recognizes this possibility, thus allowing users to easily unlock their bootloaders without any wait times or without voiding their warranty, and allowing very easy methods to root the device. Further, timely kernel source releases allows developers and power users to dive deeper into the code that runs the device, figuring out different ways (and even better ways in some cases) to achieve different goals. Kernel source releases are also helpful for the device bring-up process for AOSP-based custom ROMs such as LineageOS as well as for custom recoveries like TWRP, which in turn forms the base for further custom ROM experiences.
The kernel sources for the OnePlus 7T are now available on this Github page.
The OnePlus 7T comes with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. The highlights of this new device is the 90Hz 6.55″ FHD+ AMOLED display with HDR 10+ support, and a new triple rear camera module now comprising of a 48MP main sensor, as well as a 16MP wide-angle camera and a 12MP telephoto camera. You can know more about the device in Mario’s review or Sandeep’s camera overview.
