OnePlus 8T is just around the corner. To tell the truth, not much information has appeared so far, but we have some information to share with you. Before you start, it is worth noting that the code name of the phone – “Kebab”. In fact, the OnePlus 8T may be the only participant in the 8T series this year. According to some well-known prompts, the 8T Pro model does not start at all. To tell the truth, some contradictory information on it appeared.
The OnePlus 8T Pro manual was recently discovered on the company’s website. This hinted that the 8T Pro could still arrive. We can’t say anything for sure yet, but considering that the 8T Pro was not mentioned anywhere else. We still believe that the 8T will be the only model. This would make sense for the company, as the OnePlus 7T was much more successful than the 7T Pro. The 7T Pro was almost identical to the 7 Pro, while the 7T brought in a lot of money.
We̵7;re really not sure what OnePlus can do this year to highlight the 8T Pro, which is why we think the 8T will be the only option. It will probably combine the best of the OnePlus 8 series smartphones and combine it into one device. Some information about this phone has already leaked, which we will discuss below.
This article will be regularly updated with new information about the OnePlus 8T (this is the previous article) – both official teasers and reliable leaks, rumors and insider statements – as it becomes available on the eve of the release of the future Android smartphone. The last update was made on September 15.
OnePlus 8T may include a fan-favorite flat panel display, unlike its siblings
As for the design of the phone, it will look a bit like the OnePlus 8 phones, but not too similar. A recent software update, Android 11 Developer Preview 4 update for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro has appeared on the device. It may be just a placeholder image, but it may not be. You can read this item below. As you can see, the phone is really very similar to the other two devices, although it has a flat rather than curved display. However, we can only see its front side here.
Now a much better leak comes from Pricebaba. This website, in collaboration with OnLeaks, shared a bunch of OnePlus 8T renders. These are CAD-based renders that show the phone from all sides, to a large extent. You can also see the back of the phone, including the camera module. This time, this camera module will look different and will be located in the upper left corner of the back of the phone. It looks like the phone will have four cameras on the back.
The device includes a hole for the display camera in the upper left corner, as on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Its frame is extremely thin, and it seems that the bottom frame is not thicker than the rest. The power / lock button is on the right, as is the warning slider above the power / lock key. The volume up and down buttons can be found on the left. The corners of the phone are rounded, as are the corners of the display. This smartphone will almost certainly be made of metal and glass, like the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
Large 120 Hz display, fast charging and 5G
The OnePlus 8T is expected to be the most powerful smartphone in the company’s lineup, but it won’t be much more powerful than the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. OnePlus can even create a phone that is on the same level as the OnePlus 8 Pro, or even somewhat inferior in something. In any case, we expect to see the Snapdragon 865 Plus on the inside of this phone. Recent rumors have suggested that the Snapdragon 865 may be included instead, but this is not likely. OnePlus will almost certainly hope to include the latest and greatest SoCs here.
In addition, we get a fullHD + display with a high refresh rate. The OnePlus 8T is expected to include a 6.55-inch flat panel display. It will be a 120Hz display, so this will be an improvement over what the OnePlus 8 offered. The phone is also expected to have 8GB / 12GB of RAM and 128GB / 256GB of internal storage. You may not be able to expand this repository to understand.
Android 11 will most likely be pre-installed on the device along with OxygenOS 11 OnePlus skin. The phone will offer 5G support, and an NFC chip will be included. The device will support fast charging, but we still don’t know how fast it will be. By the way, wireless charging is also expected. This may include the same wired and wireless charging as the OnePlus 8 Pro, in fact, if not faster. By the way, OnePlus 8 Pro offers fast wired and wireless charging at 30 watts.
48-megapixel or 64-megapixel main camera
Some information on setting up the camera of this phone appeared in July. The hack APK showed that the phone will include a 64-megapixel device (sensor IMX689 from Sony). This camera will probably use a pixel connection to take 16-megapixel images of the final product. Some other information claims that the phone will have the same main camera as the OnePlus 8 Pro, a 48-megapixel unit (Sony’s IMX686).
The latter scenario is more likely, to be honest. OnePlus is likely to redo what was part of the OnePlus 8 Pro, and this sensor is quite powerful. As a reminder, the OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a new 48-megapixel sensor compared to the OnePlus 8, which is actually much newer. With the right software, this sensor can produce great images, as OnePlus has proven with the OnePlus 8 Pro.
In addition to this 48-megapixel camera, you can count on a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera. It is also planned to include a 5-megapixel macroblock, the same applies to the 2-megapixel portrait camera. According to rumors, the 32-megapixel front camera is included in the front.
The phone will probably be much more expensive than last year’s OnePlus 7T
Okay, what about phone availability and price? Well, the OnePlus 7T was launched in September, and it became available in September as well. Everything that happened at the end of the month. Well, at the moment we do not have any information about the launch of this phone, but it will appear either in late September or in October. This is at least our assumption. The phone, by the way, will be available for purchase soon after its launch. The OnePlus 8T is also expected to offer a truly compelling price tag.
However, OnePlus can do so much in terms of price, but keep that in mind. This is actually one of the reasons why OnePlus may consider using the Snapdragon 865 instead of the Snapdragon 865 Plus. There is little chance of this, but OnePlus can try to save as much cash as possible. The OnePlus 7T was quite affordable for what it offered, but don’t expect such a price for this device. OnePlus 8T is likely to be much more expensive than its predecessor. We do not want to give forecasts yet, but it will not be cheap, that’s for sure.
