It's official – the OnePlus 7T Series release date has been scheduled for 10 October.
The launch event will kick off at 16:00pm BST and is taking place at the Magazine London venue in North Greenwich.
As the name of the event suggests, OnePlus is expected to showcase a series of phones; not only the OnePlus 7T, but also the OnePlus 7T Pro.
Although this is being described by the firm as the global launch of the OnePlus 7T, fans in India will get a glimpse at the phone during a separate event, which OnePlus is calling the "first installment", on 26 September.

"OnePlus has been built around the idea of fast and smooth, and we constantly challenge ourselves to be even better," said Lau. "Your smartphone’s display is the element you interact with the most, so it makes sense to invest in screen innovation. I'm really excited to hear what our users think of the OnePlus 7T Series."
This launch date is not a surprise, although it is happening a little sooner than had been predicted. Sources had pinned the OnePlus 7T launch event to take place on 15 October after the date was leaked on Twitter.
However, the October release schedule itself follows suit from previous years in which OnePlus launches two flagships, or series of flagships – one in the Spring, and one in the Autumn. The Spring event saw the release of the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.
The OnePlus 7T Series is expected to build on these devices, albeit marginally so, and rumours suggest the OnePlus 7T will ship with 8GB of RAM and the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset. The OnePlus 7T Pro is then expected to run on the faster, more efficient Snapdragon 855 Plus. It is also expected to offer improvements to the 90 Hz Fluid AMOLED display seen on its Pro predecessor.
