Priced at $749 (approx. 2,751 AED).
After weeks of teasers and leaks, the OnePlus 8T has been officially announced. One notable change is that this is the only smartphone that the company is releasing, forgoing a Pro version that usually accompanied the standard tier.
Another change on the OnePlus 8T is the new 120Hz display (up from the 90Hz display of the OnePlus 8) along with an insane 65W fast charging support. This means that it can fully charge the 4,500 mAh of the OnePlus 8T in just 39 minutes.
Two versions of the OnePlus 8T will be available, one with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and another with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Additional features include a Snapdragon 865 with 5G support. One thing to note is that 5G support is limited to sub-6GHz and won’t support the faster mmWave standard.
While it retains much of the design of the original, the rear camera array has gotten a new setup that includes a 48-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel ultrawide camera that comes with a 123-degree field of view, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. There’s also a front-facing 16-megapixel camera.
The OnePlus 8T will also come with Oxygen 11 preinstalled, which is based on Android 11. Pre-orders are open now in select countries, and there’s no word yet on when it will be available here in the UAE and the rest of the Middle East.
Judging from the specs, the OnePlus 8T seems to be a modest upgrade, but it should be a great choice for someone looking for an Android device with premium features and that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
