OnePlus is all set to launch OnePlus 8T alongside four other new products tomorrow. Not surprisingly, we already know pretty much all the things about the smartphone, though details on the pricing in India have just leaked online.
According to famous Indian teenage tipster Ishan Agarwal, the OnePlus 8T smartphone will start at Rs. 42,999(~$586), meaning you’ll need to pay this much if want to get the base model that offers 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. For those wanting to get more RAM and Storage will have to spend more — the 8T with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will cost Rs. 45,999(~$627). However, in Europe, OnePlus 8T will be priced at Euros 599 (around Rs. 51,540) for the 8GB/128GB model and Euros 699 (around Rs. 60,140) for the 12GB/256GB model.
OnePlus 8T measures roughly 162.8 x 75.5 x 8.4mm. The thickness increases to 9.3mm including the rear camera bump when you take the camera bump into the consideration. For the sake of comparison, the thickness of the OnePlus 8 Pro is 8.5mm. So, the camera bump in the 8T does increase the thickness significantly.
The OnePlus 8T is rumored to feature a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with a screen refresh rate of 120Hz. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 865+ chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, though it’s not confirmed whether or not 8GB/128 GB will be the only variant, just like the 7T that launched last year. The smartphone is confirmed to have support for 65W Fast Charging technology, which will fully charge the battery in just 39 minutes!
The leak claims that the 8T has four cameras at the back — a 48MP primary lens, a 16MP wide-angle module, 5MP macro, and 2MP portrait lens. The 48MP lens is different than that of the OnePlus 8 in the sense that the former has a newer imaging sensor, so we expect better photos from the 8T. Unfortunately, we have no information on the selfie camera, but based on the leaked render, we can say that the 8T features a hole-punch camera design, which houses the front-facing camera.
