What can you expect from the OnePlus 8T 5G?
OnePlus’ T-series phones usually bring small upgrades to OnePlus flagships launched in the first half of the year. However, the OnePlus 8T 5G is expected to add some upgrades and design changes to the series. For example, leaked renditions of the phone suggest a chunky Galaxy S20-like camera module on the back. The phone also reportedly supports 65W fast charging from 30W charges on the OnePlus 8 Pro.
The front of the phone is likely to have the same 6.55-inch display as the OnePlus 8, but with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A 32-megapixel selfie shooter is said to be in a hole on the front while the rear camera array could include a 48 MP + 16 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP configuration.
Under the hood, you can expect the OnePlus 8T 5G to run on the Snapdragon 865 chipset. Previous rumors suggested the phone won’t be using the updated Snapdragon 865 Plus. However, the teaser commercial published by OnePlus emphasizes the speed, so there is still hope for the SD865 Plus on the OnePlus 8T 5G.
