OnePlus 7T which was launched October last year gets a permanent price cut soon after the OnePlus 8 series goes live. In short, the company slashed the price of OnePlus 7T by Rs. 6,000. Earlier, the price of 7T Pro was Rs. 53,999 for the 8GB/256GB variant but after the price cut, it is now available for Rs. 47,999.
This will be happy news for all users who were waiting for OnePlus to reduce the price of the smartphone so they could buy one. But, read and find why it’s better to get an OnePlus 8 instead of OnePlus 7T Pro.
OnePlus and many other smartphone makers generally reduce the price of the previous model when a newer version is released. The same is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S series, Pixel phones, etc. But this time I don’t feel it is worth getting a 7T Pro for Rs. 47,999 while the OnePlus 8 is already available for Rs. 41,999.
The main difference when it comes to 7T Pro and OnePlus 8 is that you get an almost bezel-less design and a motorized pop-up selfie camera in the 7T Pro. When it comes to the processor side of things, OnePlus 7T Pro gets the last year’s Snapdragon 855 while the OnePlus 8 comes with the latest Snapdragon 865. For me at least, it doesn’t make any sense to get a device with an older chip for a relatively higher price.
Here is the quick specification of last year’s company’s flagship smartphone. 7T Pro features a 6.67-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate. For the optics, it comes with a triple camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor along with a telephoto lens and ultra-wide angle lens. Under the hood, the phone is powered by Snapdragon 855 coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The phone also packs a 4,085mAh battery with fast charge support.
