Well, now it all makes (some) sense: OnePlus is upgrading its flagship smartphone to match the capabilities of the OnePlus 7T. The new model, called the OnePlus 7T Pro, provides all of the great features from its predecessor plus the new features from the 7T.
There’s just one problem: It’s not coming to the United States.

In effect, the OnePlus 7T Pro provides the same form factor, curved display, and pop-up selfie camera as its predecessor. But it has been upgraded with the Snapdragon 855+ processor, improved camera system with macro mode, and Warp Charge 30T fast charger from the OnePlus 7T. It is, in the words of OnePlus, a “performance beast,” with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of fast UFS 3.0 storage. And it includes an even larger battery.
OnePlus also introduced a special edition McLaren version of the OnePlus 7T Pro called the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition that includes 12 GB of RAM and unique black design with papaya orange highlights. It can be matched to an Alcantara case for an even more unique look and feel.
OnePlus also announced a partnership with PUBG Mobile that will bring an optimized PUBG gaming experience to OnePlus devices. And the firm’s Bullet Wireless 2 earbuds are now available in an olive green color.
The OnePlus 7T Pro will cost £699 and will be available starting next week, while the McLaren Edition will set you back £799 and go on sale in early November.

<blockquote><em><a href="#479651">In reply to MikeGalos:</a></em></blockquote><p>OnePlus are owned by BBK, a large Chinese manufacturer. They own Realme, OPPO, Vivo and oneplus brands and a few others I cant recall, sorry. OPPO and Vivo hold "about" 40% China market share. Huawei about 36-40% too, Xiaomi around 13%. BBK use these brands to fill specific market segments and they do seem to pool tech and manufacturing innovation across their brands as a collective.</p><p><br></p><p>In India, BBK brands hold about 30% total, Xiaomi 28%. Where it gets tricky is that in India OnePlus fall into the premium handset category and get compared to Samsung and apple. In this market segment, Oneplus outsell Samsung and apple with about a 37% market share… I don't have sales numbers though and it would be great to compare to the overall Indian market share.</p><p><br></p><p>OnePlus sales in the US are very small Id guess and fall in to the lowest "others" market share category. </p><p><br></p><p>As with most Chinese owned brands Europe and India are their main export sales regions along with an upcoming Africa. Obviously the Chinese home market is huge. The Indian and Chinese market is where its all occurring for smartphone growth and will be for some time to come. </p><p><br></p><p>Its only my opinion, but<span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> the</span> manufacturing pace of Chinese brands which are able to react to customer design trends exceedingly quickly is very impressive. The speed and rate of handset model/spec/feature upgrades coming out of the Chinese factories and into their users hands is key in the markets they're dominating. Companies like BBK have a series of sub brands each innovating around pooled tech and a success for one soon transfers to the others very quickly. Im pretty sure OnePlus improved camera sowftare will have come directly from OPPO's cameras advancements this year, maybe ;-)</p><p><br></p><p>P.S my figures could well be out of date by now but they will be close</p>
