Earlier it was just a rumor but now, the Chinese smartphone maker has confirmed that OnePlus 8T is arriving on October 14 at 7:30 PM IST or 10 AM ET. This upcoming event promises a whole new range of technologies elevating the experience to the next level.
OnePlus ‘T-series’ of smartphones are slightly improved versions of the usual flagship lineup or better call it as incremental updates. Last year, we saw the OnePlus 7T release as an incremental model to the OnePlus 7 while the OnePlus 7T Pro arrived as an update on the OnePlus 7 Pro and son.
This year, we already saw OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro along with the affordable OnePlus Nord. The OnePlus 8T will be the fourth and probably the last device from OnePlus this year as OnePlus 8T Pro is not expected to show up.
OnePlus 8T Price and Specs
The phone will introduce a few improvements over its predecessor such as a 120Hz refresh rate instead of 90Hz on OnePlus 8, a larger 4500 mAh battery over 4300 mAh (on OP8), and so on. The upcoming device will also bring on-board an ultra-fast 65W charging tech instead of the 30T Warp Charge on the OnePlus 8 that should charge the battery in just over half an hour. Moreover, OnePlus 8T will arrive with an Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 out-of-the-box that will be a great prospect to be sure.
OnePlus 8T is expected to be priced at least $50 to $100 more expensive than the current OnePlus 8 lineup. The OnePlus 8 Price is at $699 so expect the OnePlus 8T Price to be around $749 to $799 although you will have to wait for the official pricing to arrive.
OnePlus will also launch OnePlus Buds Z TWS during the launch event. Do check out the event on October 14 at 7:30 pm IST or 10 AM ET on the OnePlus website.
