OnePlus has just introduced its latest flagship, the OnePlus 7T Pro. The phone has arrived as the company’s third product with a screen refresh rate of 90Hz, after the OnePlus 7 Pro (review) and OnePlus 7T. Also, it is the second OnePlus flagship to flaunt Qualcomm’s latest high-end chipset, the Snapdragon 855+. It’s worth mentioning that the OnePlus 7T Pro also brings a triple camera setup like the OnePlus 7T, but the camera module on the former is placed vertically, instead of inside a circular modular on the latter.
