Update, Sept. 26: CNET's OnePlus 7T review is now live. Read more about the new phone from OnePlus. Original story follows.

The OnePlus 7T will be officially revealed on Sept. 26, and the phone is rumored to join the "three-camera club" with the more expensive flagship phones from Apple and Samsung . The event might also be the first time the public will see the OnePlus TV

OnePlus tweeted the date of its 7T series event on Monday. A livestream of the reveal will start at 10:30 a.m. ET/7:30 a.m. PT on Sept. 26. The OnePlus homepage has details about the event and says "90Hz display. Smooth like never before." OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau confirmed earlier In September that the new phone would be more affordable than the OnePlus 7 Pro and will keep the 90Hz display. 

On Tuesday, Lau tweeted out the first renders for the upcoming OnePlus 7T. He also linked to a forum post he wrote talking about the design of the phone's Triple Camera. 

"After going through over 50 design iterations, we think we've landed on something pretty special," Lau said in the post Tuesday. "With perfect symmetry from any orientation, a circular design became the natural choice. A circle's rounded edges produce an appealing contrast against the straight lines of a smartphone's rectangular form for a seamless, balanced feel."

Lau also teased the upcoming OnePlus TV earlier this month. The new product will be the Chinese company's first entry into the smart TV market. The CEO tweeted the first image of the TV's remote control, which some said looked remarkably like the Apple TV remote. 

OnePlus released its OnePlus 7 Pro in May. The company's budget-friendly Android phones are known to pack a lot of power with a great display at a lower cost than other phones. 

OnePlus didn't immediately respond to a request for additional comment.
