We have already seen a bunch of leaks about the OnePlus 8T hinting towards the design and visual aesthetics. The upcoming OnePlus 8T is expected to get a different camera design compared to the OnePlus 8 series. It is likely to be offered in two storage options - 8GB + 128GB & 12GB + 256GB.
Specification-wise, the OnePlus 8T is expected to flaunt a 6.55-inch FHD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate. When launched, it will be the second phone from OnePlus to boast refresh rate of 120Hz. Under the hood, there will be an octa-core Snapdragon 865+ SoC mated with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage.
Coming to the camera department, there will be a quad-camera module that will be positioned on the left side. This will be something different from OnePlus as we have seen OnePlus 8 with a camera module mounted in the centre. It will be a 48MP primary shooter assisted by a 16MP ultra-wide-lens along with a 5MP macro lens and a 2MP portrait camera. At the front, there could a major leap from a 16MP to a 32MP shooter. The phone is rumoured to get a 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. It will run on OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.
