The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G has a Qualcomm X55. Qualcomm website says the modem supports mmWave. Does this phone not support it cause it's physically disabled via firmware or needs another antenna?

On a hardware level, I think they just didn't include a mmWave antenna. Of course, on a firmware level, they also probably modified it to have the X55 modem not utilize mmWave. This probably means it'll have better battery life too! :)

One thing is I see band settings for n78 which is Europe 5g band.
May be there is hidden support for n78
