OnePlus has announced its brand new phone, the 7T. OnePlus 7T was unveiled at an event in India this month. And the brand new phone is scheduled to start shipping on October 18. Unlike the previous T models, the 7T isn’t just a slightly refreshed version of the OnePlus 7. For instance, unlike the OnePlus 7, the 7T features a display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Internally, it features the latest Snapdragon 855+ chip, which is better than the versions featured in the 7 and 7 Pro. Put short, OnePlus 7T is a really exciting new phone. In this article we will be looking at the specifications, the release date and the price of the OnePlus 7T in Nepal.
There have also been several rumors of a OnePlus 7T Pro. But so far, nothing much has been confirmed by the Chinese company.
From its inception, OnePlus has specialized in providing flagship quality features for a fraction of the price and the 7T is no exception. And the OnePlus 7T is actually a hundred dollars cheaper than the OnePlus 7 Pro. But for the price, it offers a lot more than the 7 Pro’s little brother, the One Plus 7. Or at least, the upgrade between the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7T definitely tops what OnePlus did with the 6T last year. The OnePlus 6T was practically a clone of the OnePlus 6. And even though design wise the 7T looks pretty much the same as OnePlus 7, there are other features to be excited about:
The first thing that buyers will notice is the amazing smoothness and fluidity that comes to the display with the 90Hz refresh rate. The OnePlus 7 didn’t feature this, although the OnePlus 7 Pro did. The display has been upgraded from an optic AMOLED to a fluid AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. To put it simply, the OnePlus 7T features a flagship quality display.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts
On the inside, the 7T packs the latest Snapdragon 855+ chip. This is an improvement to the 855 chips featured on the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus claims that the newer improved chip offers a performance boost of up to 15 percent to the 7T. It is also worth considering how OnePlus is offering the latest Snapdragon chip for this price range while much more expensive flagships like the Galaxy Note 10 still features the vanilla version of Snapdragon 855. Memory wise, the OnePlus 7T features 8GB of RAM and an internal storage of either 128GB or 256GB.
Cameras are very important components of smartphones. And the 7T packs a camera setup that can be deemed quite respectable for 2019. It features a triple lens setup with one wide angle lens, one telephoto lens and one ultra-wide angle lens. The OnePlus 7 only features two lenses in the rear. And in the front, the 7T features a single 16-megapixel wide angle lens.

When is OnePlus 7T coming out in Nepal?
OpenPlus releases two batches of smartphones every year. The main flagships (like the OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6 pro, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 pro) come out in May. The, OnePlus releases a slightly modified version of these flagships as the T series (like the OnePlus 6T and 6T pro from last year) in October. OnePlus 7T will start shipping internationally on October 18.
But as always, a slight delay can be expected for the Nepali market. OpenPlus 6T hit the Nepali shelves in November, 2018. If the trend continues, you can expect OnePlus 7T to be available in November, 2019. Last year, the 6T was first exclusively available at Daraz, before a more wider release later. The pre-orders for OnePlus 6T at Daraz started on the 11.11 sales day. We don’t know if this will be the case with the 7T. But we will keep you updated.
How much will OnePlus 7T cost in Nepal?
The international price for OnePlus 7T has been set at $599. OnePlus 6T was released for the same price. So we can assume that the price of OnePlus 7T in Nepal will be the same as with the 6T.
OnePlus 6T was launched at Daraz for NRs 69,999. It was later launched elsewhere for NRs 76,000. We have based our assumption on that:
- OnePlus 7T price in Nepal would most likely be NRs 75,000.
For the features that this phone is packing, the price is quite a bargain. This has always been the great thing about all OnePlus phones. They pack great features for a bargain of a price. Other phones coming out in November for instance, like Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro and Apple’s iPhone 11, will cost more.
Where can you buy OnePlus 7T in Nepal?
OnePlus 6T was first launched exclusively at Daraz in 2018, for NRs 6000 less than the final retail price. We can expect OnePlus 7T to follow the trend, but we’re not sure yet. The phone will be also available at other dealers promptly. And if we hear about deals on this phone, we will let you know.
