The OnePlus 7 Pro was an odd departure for the company. It took everything the brand represented, which is low priced phones with high end specs, and tossed it out. It had a pretty high price tag, not far from Samsung’s cheapest Galaxy S10e, and some of the highest end hardware on the market.
There was a regular, budget-oriented OnePlus 7 but it never came to the States. We were stuck with a $669 smartphone that didn’t exactly appeal to the budget crowd, though it was without a doubt an amazing piece of hardware.
And just as quickly as it came, it’s gone. Well at least for T-Mobile. The carrier has announced that it will no longer be selling the OnePlus 7 Pro due to OnePlus’ desire to focus on a single device in the States. Online stock is depleted, so if you still want one from the carrier, you’ll have to call around stores to find one. Of course you can still buy them unlocked, and that’s even preferable in many ways.
In its stead will be the new OnePlus 7T, which will be a bit cheaper at $599 when it officially launches in two weeks. There will be no pro variant in the US, so this is the device we get. Unfortunately there will be a gap between the disappearance of the 7 Pro and the release of the 7T, but you can always buy the devices elsewhere. And hey, maybe the more budget-friendly 7T will be a return to form.
