The OnePlus 8T+ 5G will be available for pre-order this Friday, October 16, and it'll launch in stores on October 23. It features the same 6.55-inch 1080p OLED display present in the OnePlus 8, but the refresh rate is now turned up to match the OnePlus 8 pro, i.e., 120Hz.
From a specifications perspective, the OnePlus 8T delivers as expected for a flagship-class device, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage, and Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity. Notably, the 8T doesn't have a curved screen, however, which should make it more resistant to drops and bangs. Following up on the popular release of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the company opted to take a "step back", moving away from chasing the likes of Samsung and Apple in the flagship race.
When is the OnePlus 8T launching? The screen runs at a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels. Rs. 60,000. The smartphone will have an Aquamarine Green colour option along with an expected Lunar Silver variant.
The quad-camera system looks less, well, "OnePlus" this time around. As for cameras, the 8T returns with the familiar 48Mp main camera on the back, along with a 16Mp ultra-wide, 5Mp macro and 2Mp mono. The front camera is a since 16MP wide lens. You can see that hint in the video below at around the 8:28 mark. More importantly, OnePlus is also bringing Nightscape mode to video capture as well. It works by essentially splitting the 4,500-mAh battery up into two halves that are charged separately, and it promises to end the usual reliance on overnight charging.
Unfortunately, this change means little to those with a T-Mobile OnePlus 8T+, as the carrier model comes preloaded with the McAfee app.
If you're keen, the OnePlus 8T Malaysia launch will be happening on the 22nd of October 2020, at 12pm MYT. The new Warp charger can charge the 4500mAh battery up to 58% in only 15 minutes, while full charge only requires 39 minutes.
A new version of the OnePlus Nord is here, and it is still not available to purchase in the US.
