OnePlus is launching a Cyberpunk 2077 edition for its latest flagship OnePlus 8T on November 2nd. The announcement was made by OnePlus on its Weibo account, which means that this new limited edition model will initially be available in China. OnePlus could bring the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition to other markets, including India, just as it has released McLaren editions of its smartphones.
OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition will come with yellow and gray accents all around. There will be a modified camera block on this model. Some crossbranding elements such as the “2077” moniker may be present on the back panel, along with thematic changes to the design. OnePlus didn’t share the look of the phone in the teaser, but you can expect a Cyberpunk 2077 theme on the phone, including associated app icons.
Aside from these visual changes, the OnePlus 8T’s hardware is unlikely to change. The cameras will all be the same, there will be the Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12 GB of RAM and a 4500 mAh 65 W rechargeable battery. The OnePlus 8T makes subtle improvements over the OnePlus 8 but the Fluid AMOLED display is consistent. You get one in a 6.55-inch size with the Always-On Display feature. The OnePlus 8T also runs OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11.
OnePlus has previously confirmed that the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition will go to pre-orders in China starting November 4th. Obviously, he didn’t share the price of the phone. But previous leaks have suggested that the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition will come in the 12GB RAM and 256GB memory model with a price tag of CNY 3,999 (around Rs 43,600).
Meanwhile, the popular Cyberpunk 2077 title has been postponed 21 days to December 10. It will arrive on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Google Stadia in December. Interestingly, support for Google Stadia will lead to a wide range of devices including smartphones as Google’s gaming platform is cloud-based. But OnePlus is not yet registered with Google Stadia, but it could change soon if we take the partnership of OnePlus with the creator of Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt Red as an indication.
