The OnePlus 8 lineup gets a new member today, it’s the OnePlus 8T. No, supercar branding here but the new phone comes with an insane 65W fast charging tech and a 120Hz display to start with.
The newly launched OnePlus 8T has two variants, one offers 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and the other has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The US, though, will only get the higher-end model priced at $749, while the European markets will get both for €599 / £549 and €699 / £649. Sales will kick off from October 23 in the US, while in Europe it will be available on October 20.
If you look at the previous model, the major difference you can find on the OnePlus 8T is the new Warp Charge 65 tech — it’s alike Oppo’s 65W SuperVOOC charger. This will charge the phone’s 4,5000mAh battery to around 58 percent in about just 15 minutes, with full charge happening in just 39 minutes. Prior phones had pretty accurate charge time as claimed so this one won’t be an exception, hopefully.
Barring that, the specs are pretty much the same in comparison to its siblings — it still comes with the Snapdragon 865 chipset but weirdly enough it supports sub-6GHz 5G only but no mmWave. There’s an in-display fingerprint scanner, whilst out of the box, you’ll get the taste of OxygenOS based on Android 11.
In terms of the optics, the 8T brings a quad-camera at the back: the main one is a 48MP sensor alongside 16MP ultrawide with 123-degree FoV, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP monochrome sensor just for the numbers. Again, it’s a weird choice but it is what it is, however, this time it’s kept inside a rectangular camera bump, unlike previous offerings. The front gets a 16MP selfie camera inside a punch-hole cutout.
Pre-orders for the OnePlus 8T has already started, while for the price in Nepal, the OnePlus 8T could start from anywhere between Rs. 100,000 to Rs. 110,000.
