Since 2016, it's a tradition for OnePlus to launch a T-variant phone at the end of the year. These phones usually have updated hardware components, which means they might come with hardware that came out in the period of time where they announced the non-T and the T-version. This also usually goes hand-in-hand with a price increase of usually 20-30 euros/dollars. The only exception to this price increase is the OnePlus 5T - both 5 and 5T were sold for the same price (despite 5T having better hardware).
With the 7-series, this changed a bit. Normally OnePlus releases 2 devices per year - the non-T version and the T-version. But this year OnePlus released 7 and 7 Pro together. You can expect 2 new phones: the 7T and the 7T Pro.
So when will OnePlus announce their 7T-series? Well, according to Max J, who's built a good reputation regarding OnePlus leaks, OnePlus will announce their 7T-series on September 26th in India. On the 10th of October, OnePlus will launch their 7T-series in the US and EU. Sales will start on October 15th, according to Max.
OnLeaks, who has a good reputation when it comes to creating renders from factory sketches, also showed some 7T renders on Pricebaba: https://pricebaba.com/blog/oneplus-7t-renders-360-degree-video-exclusive.

Yeah okay, so? Will you guys support those devices in Oxygen Updater?
Funny that you're asking. Because OnePlus make changes under the hood, where the 7-series is an example of, it at least needs some hassling in order to support it. We promise to support new devices if it's technically possible, but if OnePlus makes too many changes under the hood, there's not much we can do.
With kind regards,
The Oxygen Updater team.
