OnePlus 8T has been subject to numerous leaks and rumours in the past and speculations are rife whether the company will bring a OnePlus 8T Pro or skip it entirely. We believe the omission of the word "series" from the launch invite is likely a hint at that possibility. Nevertheless, here's what we know about the OnePlus 8T so far.
OnePlus 8T is rumoured to feature a 6.55-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution display with a 120Hz high refresh rate. There is a punch-hole cutout in the top-left corner for the selfie camera and the screen is relatively flatter than the OnePlus 8.
The OnePlus 8T is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor and could be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage or 12GB+256GB storage options to choose from. The phone is expected to run on OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11, out-of-the-box.
OnePlus 8T could come with a 48MP primary camera, a 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera that is housed in the punch-hole cutout.
The OnePlus 8T could also come fitted with a 4,500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging out-of-the-box.
