It’s almost five months ago OnePlus had announced the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Now the company is all set to bring the successor of it, which will be called the ‘T’ series flagship from OnePlus. There are a number of specifications and renders are already leaked about the upcoming OnePlus 8T. Let’s check out what are the specs this phone will offer.
As per the leaked specifications, the OnePlus 8T will run OxygenOS 11 out of the box, presumably based on Android 11, and will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor. Usually, OnePlus uses the ‘Plus’ versions of Snapdragon’s flagship chipsets for its T-series devices. But this time no ‘Plus’ version will be offered. Regarding the display, this phone will feature a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution with a refresh rate of 120Hz. It’s predecessor the OnePlus 8 features a 90Hz display. So, this is definitely an improvement. Lastly, the display will feature a hole-punch type design and we can see the punch-hole cutout in the top-left corner of the phone.
The OnePlus 8T will come into the market with two different RAM/storage variants. One of them will be 8GB + 128GB where the other one will be 12GB + 256GB. Now coming to the module, this phone will feature a quad rear camera module in an L-shaped layout (rectangular camera module in the top left corner). The rear camera module will feature a 48MP primary shooter, 16MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro, and 2MP portrait sensor. An LED flash is also there within the rectangular module. Regarding the selfie section, this phone will offer a 32MP selfie shooter in the front. We’ve got 16MP selfie cameras on both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. So, this is also an improvement in the new model.
Regarding the battery, this phone will offer a decent 4,500mAH battery. but, the twist is in the charging as the battery will be charged by a 65W warp charger. from the last few years, we’ve only witnessed up to 30W fast charging in the OnePlus models. Now this will be a huge improvement for the OnePlus. Coming to the buttons and connectivity part. The OnePlus 8T will have its power button and alert slider on the left spine and the volume rocker on the right side. This phone supports a USB Type-C port and loudspeaker grill, while a noise-canceling mic is seen at the top.
As per the reports, the OnePlus 8T might get released by the end of September or the first week of October. There is nothing confirmed about the launch date yet. Similarly, we don’t have any information about the pricing of the phone. But it is expected that the pricing will be higher than the OnePlus 8, which currently starts at Rs 44,999 in India.
