As expected, OnePlus at an event in India a few days back revealed the Oneplus 7T with no words on the Pro model. The device is one of the first few to ship with Google’s new Android 10 OS, with OnePlus’s OxygenOS out of the box. A the Oneplus 7T Core is the SD 855+ SoC, and beyond that, the 7T ticks all the right box, and is well-positioned to take on the upcoming Google Pixel 4 in the US.
Amongst the tons of upgrade over the Oneplus 7 Pro, the 7T gets an additional telephoto lens at the rear with some impressive software features on tap to optimize your photo and shooting experience. One of such is 720p slow-motion recording at 960fps. Although Oneplus did announce the feature at launch but later confirmed it won’t be available out of the box.
Oneplus confirmed to XDA developers that the Oneplus 7T will get support for super slow-motion recording at 960fps, via a software update. At that rate, the 7T will be on top of the game offering twice as slow as the 480fps supported by OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The 7T’s camera sensor as noted by the guys at XDA cannot store 960 frames every second, so it will most likely rely on motion-compensated frame interpolation (MCFI) to record slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second.
4K videos recording coming too
Besides the slow-mo update, the firm also confirmed the device will get support for 4K videos recording at 30 frames per second using the ultrawide angle camera with a future update. This feature is only currently available to the Oneplus 7 Pro which only received the support via Android 10 update. The Mi Mix 3 from Xiaomi uses similar frame interpolation to achieve 960fps, though we do not expect a high-quality output compare to devices with supported built-in DRAM on the sensor.
