The OnePlus 8T will be unveiled on October 14th
After weeks of speculation and leaks, OnePlus has officially confirmed there is indeed a OnePlus 8T, and it will be unveiled via an online launch event on October 14th. No other details about the phone(s) was announced, but a leak published last week by e-commerce site PriceBaba, in partnership with leaker OnLeaks, suggest the 8T will, unlike the OnePlus 8 series, have a flat display panel and a rectangular camera module located on the upper left corner of the device’s backside.
According to the same Pricebaba leaks, the 8T will also feature a 120Hz panel—a jump from the 90Hz one used in last year’s 7T—and run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Plus. This puts the phone’s hardware at premium flagship level, which perhaps explains the 8T’s tagline—”Ultra Stops at Nothing”—which appears to be a reference to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. We can expect the 8T to ship with the Android 11-based OxygenOS 11, on which the company has been working and teasing the past few months.
While last year’s 7T was accompanied by a 7T Pro, Android Central‘s Alex Dobie tweeted there will not a Pro variant this year. But that’s okay, OnePlus has enough devices on its hands: The 8T is coming just two months after the launch of the mid-ranger OnePlus Nord, and a rumored Nord N10 5G and OnePlus “Clover” device are apparently coming to the US market soon.
