OnePlus 7T Pro bags certification from NBTC ahead of launch, reveals new model number
The OnePlus 7 series got the stable version of Android 10 in the form of OxygenOS 10.0 update a few days ago, albeit the transition experience was not entirely smooth. The carrier locked variants have yet to receive the same treatment. As always, the 5G model was excluded from the initial roster.
Nevertheless, both OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are soon going to succeeded by their corresponding T variants. The Shenzhen based OEM confirmed the launch event dates; even teased the new camera design themselves so that you don’t need to rely on ‘unofficial’ sources.
At this moment, there is no point to release the OnePlus 7T lineup anything other than Android 10 out of the box. In fact, the company also confirmed the speculation yesterday. Both OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro will be preinstalled with OxygenOS 10, although I presume the minor version should be higher than that of OnePlus 7 series.
We’re thrilled to offer Android 10, the latest software version, for our upcoming OnePlus 7T. OnePlus will be the first smartphone manufacturer to preload Android 10 with Google’s apps and services on their latest device. Our ‘Never Settle’ mindset ensures we are constantly seeking new ways to share the latest technology, giving our community the best ‘fast and smooth’ experience possible.

I would say OnePlus poked Huawei in a subtle manner regarding the fact that the P30 Pro series does not have access to Google apps due to the US trade dispute. You still can sideload them, but that’s another story.
Keeping track of OxygenOS OTA updates is our favorite job and we are planning to do the same for OnePlus 7T series too! A vital parameter for OTA tracking is the internal model number. Guess what? OnePlus 7 Pro (or at least the global unlocked variant of it) will carry the ‘HD1913’ tag.
The information came from the records of the Office of The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), Thailand. FYI, we also discovered the existence of the Mi 9T series before anyone using the NBTC listing.
For comparison, GM1913 is the internal model number of the European edition of OnePlus 7 Pro. The Indian and global models are tagged as GM1911 and GM1917, respectively. Guess ‘G’ and ‘H’ are indicating the generation of the phones.
