OnePlus gained popularity for releasing a new device months after their latest flagship, and that was also the case for the OnePlus 8T.
However, this time around, the 8T arrives alone, as it isn’t accompanied by a Pro version to succeed the OnePlus 8Pro, which is still available for sale.
We are here to walk you through a quick review of the device.
Pricing, Looks, And Release Date
One version of the 8T will be available in the U.S. on Oct. 23 – A 12GB RAM and 256GB storage model.
The high-power U.S. spec is available in Luna Silver and Aquamarine Green. The base price is $749, or about $50 higher than the OnePlus 8, which had less RAM and storage, so the pricing difference is somewhat justifiable.
The pricing point suggests an upper end of the mid-range phone arena.
The 8T looks a lot like it’s budget brother, the OnePlus Nord. Both devices feature a rounded rectangular design with flat displays, making the device more comfortable to grip.
The 8T is slightly larger than its predecessor, measuring 6.32 x 2.91 x 0.33 inches and weighing 6.6 ounces.
Unfortunately, there is still no IP68 water and dust resistance, so you should look elsewhere if you are interested in that.
New OnePlus devices packed exciting displays, and the same goes for the 8T, which features a 6.55-inch display with 2400 x 1080 resolution. Also, the 120Hz refresh rate makes it that much better.
The OLED panel features HDR.
The device features a 48MP primary and 16MP ultra-wide-angle cameras from its predecessor and adds a 5MP macro and 2MP monochrome on top of them.
The device should have been equipped with a Snapdragon 865 Plus, as the “T” models usually feature Qualcomm’s newest system-on-a-chip. However, the 8T features the same Snapdragon 865 as the OnePlus 8 did six months ago.
An official spokesperson claimed that the chip is more than capable of handling anything you can throw at it.
The battery autonomy will be decent, as it has a capacity of 4,500 mAh.
The autonomy highly depends on the refresh rate you choose.
Warp Charge is available at 65W, meaning that it can charge from zero to 55% in only 15 minutes! Another 15 minutes will add up to 38% more battery charge.
