OnePlus 7 vs OnePlus 6T Comparison: What's The Difference?

2:19 PM

The OnePlus smartphones are highly anticipated devices each year. Part of their appeal is that not only do they come with high-end specs and features, they also come with affordable price tags that won’t tempt you to sell an organ or two.

For this year, in the first half of 2019, the OnePlus 7 is expected to launch and of course, tech enthusiasts are looking forward to it. So based on its rumored specs and features, how is it any different from the latest model, the OnePlus 6T? Here are the differences between the two.

No Notch?

The OnePlus 6T came with a waterdrop notch that some would argue is better compared to the OnePlus 6’s notch design. Whether that’s true or not, that’s up for debate.

But for the OnePlus 7, a leak suggests that it will feature a full-screen design. Here’s a photo of the OnePlus 7 on the left and the OnePlus 6T on the right.

To achieve this design, OnePlus has adopted a slider camera system similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Lenovo Z5 Pro, and Honor Magic 2. However, having this kind of design also raises certain issues.

The first issue: It will compromise the OnePlus 7’s uncertified water-resistance feature.

The second issue: The OnePlus 7 will become marginally thicker which could make it prone to damages in case of odd falls.

The Processor

The OnePlus 6T is packed with a Snapdragon 845 chip. The OnePlus 7 will be packed with the latest 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip which will allow faster data speeds and image processing.


The OnePlus 6T comes with 6/8GB of RAM. But for the OnePlus 7, it is expected to feature up to 10 GB of RAM, just like the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition.

Triple Cameras?

NewsBytesApp noted that the upcoming iPhone and Galaxy S10 flagships are adopting triple rear cameras. With this, perhaps the OnePlus 7 might feature this as well.

But the way we (73Buzz) see it, the chances of the OnePlus 7 having such camera feature are very low. We would rather bet with the OnePlus 7T or not expect it at all.

The Price Tag

Rumors claim that the OnePlus 7 could cost $50-100 more than the OnePlus 6T. These are the price tags of the OnePlus 6T according to TechRadar:

  • 6GB/128GB Mirror Black color — $549 / £499
  • 8GB/128GB Mirror Black color — $579 / £529
  • 8GB/128GB Midnight Black color — $579 / £529
  • 8GB/256GB Midnight Black color — $629 / £579
  • 10GB/256GB McLaren edition — $699 / £649
