Yo! Where as Google is out here dropping the ball with design, features, battery and more. Oneplus is proving why they should grab the ball and run with it. With their design and UI combined with Google's computational expertise and software. We could have something truly special on our hands. That said, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren edition is coming to T-Mobile and I can't be more excited. That is a phone I can't wait to get my hands on.
Last year I didn't have the opportunity to grab the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition as I was all about the Note. However, I was sold on its design, look, and appeal. This year I've been full on OnePlus and full on impressed. The initial thought process was that the 7T Pro wasn't going to be available in the U.S. But like a great Royal Rumble OnePlus and T-Mobile cranked the theme music and came barreling down the ramp that not only will it be available, but it'll be a T-Mobile exclusive with 5G support AND the limited McLaren Edition. BARS!
The 7T Pro McLaren edition is pure fire. Orange & Black with a Black Panther style design around the camera. 12 gigs of RAM, the 855+ Snapdragon processor, and oh yeah. A 4085 mAh battery. WHAT!? Bro, if I don't get this phone in my life when it drops there's gonna be some problems.
This will be a big step both for OnePlus and T-Mobile as U.S phone consumers want to get their hands of the BEST OnePlus device available and T-Mobile will be the only one delivering that device, and they'll be doing it in 5G. Also according to Android Police this will be the first non-mmWave 5G device. Meaning that it can not only tap into the mmWave spectrum for connectivity, but the 600 MHz spectrum as well. I can go into to more yada yada about the whole thing but suffice it to say this is great news and gives the phone better signal.
Look, I'm not gonna deny I'm "fan boying" out over OnePlus. They have a design I love and features I can get behind. The Nebula Blue was dope. The Almond was beautiful, even though I couldn't get my hands on it. And now this, THIS is my phone.
