OnePlus’ next smartphone, OnePlus 8T, is set to launch on October 14th. The phone is the next big release from the company that is likely to hit the market upon its release. The company will launch the OnePlus 8 successor at a virtual event later in the day.
The OnePlus 8T is expected to launch in India during an event that will be live streamed in India today at 7:30 pm on the OnePlus Youtube channel and other social media.
OnePlus 8T: expected price
Prior to the launch of the OnePlus 8T, there were a number of details that revealed key information about the upcoming phone. Among the leaks, information on the possible price of the device was also covered, with information leaked showing that the OnePlus 8T will be made available in multiple storage and RAM variants. The phone is expected to launch with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB storage variant which will cost Rs 42,999. The price of the 12GB variant with 256GB of storage will be Rs 45,999.
The price tag would see the OnePlus 8T look good over its existing line of devices and also help differentiate it from the OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 8 series devices.
OnePlus 8T: expected specifications
And before its launch, we also have some information about the device’s internals. While some came courtesy of leaks, the other was made fun of by the company itself.
According to the latest information teased by the company, OnePlus 8T will have a new front camera configuration, which looks like it could be an update of what was seen on OnePlus 8. As per the teaser shared through the company Twitter from the grip, the OnePlus 8T will have an ultra wide angle lens housed in a hole on the front of the phone.
This will be in stark comparison to the selfie camera found on the OnePlus 8 which featured a regular 16 megapixel lens on the front for photos. Aside from that, the new teaser reveals nothing new about the next device.
However, OnePlus has confirmed some key details about the smartphone in the past, with whistleblowers also revealing key details about the OnePlus 8T. According to reports, the phone could have up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, paired with a Snapdragon 865+ processor.
There is confirmation from OnePlus that the phone will come with an AMOLED panel that will run at a quick 120Hz refresh rate. The OnePlus 8T screen information is officially available from OnePlus, complete with Display Mate’s test notes rating it very well. OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 8T screen will use a new 2.5D flexible glass that helps the display shine brighter, reaching a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits, while color accuracy will be “the highest possible in the industry”.
Another confirmation of the features we have from OnePlus is the faster charging on OnePlus 8T. The company confirmed that the phone offers “Ultra-Fast” charging speeds of up to 65W using the company’s new Warp Charge 65 solution. This will be paired with a 4500mAh battery pack. More information about the device will be known in the coming days as we approach the launch date of the device.
