Available for £699 in a few days time (Amazon, John Lewis and the OnePlus website), this is the OnePlus 7T Pro. It sits quite neatly next to it’s more expensive £799 brother – the OnePlus 7T Pro Mclaren Edition. The latter won’t be available until November 5th. The …

The OnePlus 7T – Up close and personal
