OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8T in a live event

OnePlus launched the anticipated next generation of flagship devices only a day after Apple’s Hi, Speed‘s launch event.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro were launched at the beginning of the year, and with the arrival of the 8T, it seems the brand would be packing their bags for this year.

The technology company has always been proud of its specifications, and the 8T is no exception. The 8T beats the 8 in almost every aspect while still leaving a reason to purchase the OnePlus 8 Pro.

OnePlus 8T: Specifications

Starting with the phone’s display, the 8T comes with what the brand claim is the world’s first flat display to feature a 120Hz refresh rate panel.

The AMOLED screen is 6.55 inches diagonally long, with a maximum brightness of 1,100 nits.

The 8T will also be the first non-google smartphone to ship with Android 11, coupled with OxygenOS and three years of software support.

One of the greatest upgrades for the OnePlus 8T has been in the charging department. According to a Live Mint report, the massive 4,500 mAh battery comes with 65W fast charging out-of-the-box, which should charge up to 60% in 15 minutes.

Furthermore, the 8T is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, which supports 5G connectivity. The OnePlus 8T comes with a UFS 3.1 storage and variants with huge RAM variants to increase the speed.


The 8T comes with the same 48MP main camera in the camera department, as seen in every OnePlus device ever since the OnePlus 7.

Other cameras in the quad-camera setup are the 16MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro lens, and the 2MP monochrome lens.

The 16MP front camera sits in a small punch-hole in the top left of the display and supports Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS).

The brand has done incremental improvements in the 8T’s cameras, introducing features like video recording in nightscape and improved stabilization.

Pricing and availability

The 8T comes in two size variants, 8GB RAM coupled with 128GB internal storage and 12GB RAM coupled with 256GB internal storage.

It comes in two color variants, Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver.

Users can choose between the lower storage variant, which costs 42,999 rupees, whereas the higher storage variant costs 45,999 rupees.

The brand has decided to sell only the 12GB+256GB version of the 8T in the US, which would retail at $749, according to a report by The Verge.

The availability of the OnePlus 8T would vary according to the region. But for most regions, OnePlus will open pre-booking for the 8T within this week.
