OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 8T flagship in the second half of the year. However, there has been still no exact launch date. Today, MySmartPrice reported that the OnePlus 8T will be officially released on October 14.
Compared with the OnePlus 8, the OnePlus 8T has two major changes in appearance. One is the use of flat-screen AMOLED (OnePlus 8 uses a hyperboloid screen). And the other is the matrix camera shape on the back. The panel is curved and the LED flash is located within the module.
It is reported that the OnePlus 8T uses a 6.55-inch hole-punch screen with a resolution of FHD+ and the refresh rate is increased to 120Hz.
In terms of hardware configuration, the biggest upgrade of the OnePlus 8T is to support 65W ultra-fast flash charging. This is the fastest charging OnePlus phone so far. And its performance even exceeds the OnePlus 8 Pro. The OnePlus 8T may house a 4,500mAh battery.
In addition to supporting 65W super flash charging, the OnePlus 8T also retains flagship specifications such as the Snapdragon 865 flagship processor, LPDDR5 memory, etc. The phone might be available in two options including 8GB RAM + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB.
The OnePlus 8T sports a rear 48MP ultra-clear main sensor, a 16MP super wide-angle sensor, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth of field lens. The front camera has a 32MP resolution.
We guess the phone will cost more than 4000 yuan taking into account that the OnePlus 8 starts at 3999 yuan ($590).
