OnePlus on Wednesday announced its newest phone, the 8T. Priced as low as $749, it builds on the flagship 8 announced earlier in the year.
The OnePlus 8T has a faster refresh rate than its predecessor at 120Hz and features a 65-watt fast charging battery. In a related note, the battery is a smidge larger at 4,500mAh.
According to OnePlus, the 8T can get a “full day’s charge” in just 15 minutes. A full charge takes just 39 minutes on the charger. To make this possible, the 8T relies on two batteries and a dozen temperature sensors.
Other noteworthy differences include a video portrait mode and always-on display options. Perhaps most interesting, and welcome, change is that it uses a flat glass for the screen and not a curved edge.
Similar to the OnePlus 8, the 8T has a 6.6-inch HD AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint reader, 8/12GB RAM with 128GB/256GB storage. The rear houses a quad-camera experience centered around a 48-megapixel main camera sensor.
The OnePlus runs Android 11 and will be offered in Lunar Silver and Aquamarine Green, The phone goes on sale October 23 at OnePlus and Amazon; pre-orders are available immediately.
T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier for the OnePlus 8T 5G in the United State. Its version will also be available October 23 with pre-orders starting October 16. Pricing will be $31.25/month for 24 months.
