Oneplus has been hinting the launch of the next smartphone from its popular series, the successor to Oneplus 7T, the Oneplus 8T for quite some time now. There have been many speculations and rumors regarding the launch of this smartphone, but Oneplus announced the launch of Oneplus 8T 5G on its website and hinted that the much-awaited phone will hit the market soon.
It’s believed that the delay in the launch has been caused because of the pandemic caused by the coronavirus that had pushed back the production schedule. Many people were expecting that the company would launch Oneplus 8T earlier in September as they did with the Oneplus 7T last year.
Features of the Oneplus 8T
It is confirmed that the Oneplus 8T will run on the latest and stable version of OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11. The phone will be powered with a Snapdragon 865 SoC chipset.
Oneplus 8T Cameras
According to reports and insider sources, the Oneplus 8T will have a different camera setup than any other smartphones from the Oneplus 8 range. The Oneplus 8T phone will have a quad rear camera along with a front selfie camera. The Phone’s primary camera will have a 48-megapixel sensor.
The other three cameras are going to be a 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor, a 5-megapixel sensor for macro shots, and a 2-megapixel sensor that will help in taking portraits. As for the front camera, it will most likely be a 32-megapixel camera located on the top left corner of the screen rather than the center of the screen.
Oneplus 8T Display
The display for the Oneplus 8T is a 6.55-inch full-HD+ screen. It is possible that the phone will have a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The refresh rate of the phone has been confirmed to be 120 Hz.
RAM and Storage
It is being reported that the Oneplus 8T will be available in two configurations. One option will have a RAM of 8GB and internal storage of 128 GB. The other option with 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal phone storage.
The battery of Oneplus 8T is believed to be a 4500 mAh with a 65W fast charging support. It also looks like there may be no Pro version of this smartphone by Oneplus, unlike the Oneplus 7T Pro. There has been no news from the company if it will launch the Pro version later or decide to skip it this year.
As for the price, the Oneplus 8T is going to around the same price as the Oneplus 8 if not a little higher. It is being predicted that the phone may retail around 45000 rupees depending on its configurations.
OnePlus 8T Launch event
So far there has been no official announcement from Oneplus as to when and how the phone will be unveiled and launched. However many sources claim that the phone will be available from October 14, as Amazon has already launched a dedicated page for the Oneplus 8T.
It is most likely that Oneplus will soon announce all the details regarding the Oneplus 8T in a virtual event which seems to be the trend for most companies at the time being.
