OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is coming to the US in a 5G model for T-Mobile
OnePlus and T-Mobile have teamed up to release the second 5G phone for both companies. The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition will be available in the US exclusively through T-Mobile. Some people were surprised that OnePlus didn’t share any 5G news when they announced the OnePlus 7T series. Now we know they were just waiting to share the news with T-Mobile.
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition has the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem, which allows it to connect to T-Mobile’s sub-6GHz 5G network. This is different from most other 5G phones that have the Snapdragon X50 modem (such as the Galaxy S10 5G, which launched on T-Mobile in June) because it’s designed to connect to T-Mobile’s 600 FDD spectrum rather than any mmWave network. T-Mobile plans to cover 200 million people with 5G on 600 MHz before the end of 2019.
There are a few differences between the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition and regular OnePlus 7T Pro. The most obvious is the McLaren-inspired orange and black design. Inside, it bumps the RAM up from 8GB to 12GB. Other specs include a 6.67-inch QHD+ display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, 256GB of storage, a 48MP main camera, zoom and wide-angle lenses, a 4,085 mAh battery, and Android 10 out of the box.
T-Mobile did not share pricing or launch date details for the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition, but it will be available later this year. If you’re looking to upgrade from the last OnePlus device that was made available through T-Mobile, the 5G OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition seems like the only option for this cycle.
