What’s up with the OnePlus 7T’s camera?

I hope you’re ready for the new smartphone season because the leaks have begun to stream in. Following the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series, one of the next companies to unveil a phone will likely be OnePlus and their new device should be called the OnePlus 7T. Today, we get a clear look at a couple of renders of this upcoming smartphone and it looks like the phone will have a funky camera design.

These renders of the OnePlus 7T come from serial leakster OnLeaks (@OnLeaks) who has been pretty reliable in the past when it came to leaks. The video, for those who can’t watch, shows what is allegedly the OnePlus 7T in 360-degrees giving us a pretty clear look at the device.

Most of what we see isn’t too far out of the ordinary, including the lack of a headphone jack, a USB-C port, power and volume buttons, and of course the OnePlus alert slider. Up front, you’ve got a large slim-bezeled display with a tiny notch at the top similar to how the OnePlus 7 looks. According to the video, the phone will have a 6.4″ display, that we reckon will be a Full HD+ Optic AMOLED panel. Other rumoured specs include a Snapdragon 855+, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. There will also probably be an in-display fingerprint scanner and perhaps even stereo speakers.

However, one interesting thing about the OnePlus 7T’s design is its main camera module. What is up with that design? If we’re talking about a big deviation from what OnePlus has built as its design identity.

If these renders are correct, the OnePlus 7T will have a circular camera module in the middle of the top half of the phone that’ll house a triple camera setup. In addition to that, there are also angular design lines that split the three cameras up into little triangles, with a flash sitting right below the centre camera.

On the OnePlus 7, you have a 48MP main camera with a Sony IMX586 sensor and an f/1.7 aperture lens with optical image stabilisation. Alongside that, there’s a secondary 5MP depth camera. With the OnePlus 7T, it looks like you’ll be getting one more camera, but we have no way of knowing what kind of focal lengths you’re getting here. My guess would be a wide-angle main camera, an ultra-wide secondary camera and a depth camera–a setup that’s really popular right now.

In any case, these renders are only of the OnePlus 7T, and not the OnePlus 7T Pro, if there even will be one (there probably will). OnLeaks has said that OnePlus are allegedly working on a OnePlus 7T McLaren “Senna” edition smartphone, after the epic hypercar from the British carmaker. It’ll be interesting to see how they’ll develop that in comparison to the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition.

What do you guys think of the OnePlus 7T renders? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, and don’t forget to remember that these are leaked renders so take them with a pinch of salt.
