Here’s what the new OnePlus 8T will look like
Pricebaba, in partnership with famed leaker OnLeaks, has unveiled what are purported renders of the upcoming OnePlus 8T, revealing a sleek design that includes a “Samsung-esque” camera bump.
According to Pricebaba, the renders are based on internal schematics obtained by OnLeaks rather than CAD files, so the dimensions may not be exact. Regardless, they provide us with a pretty good idea of what to expect from the OnePlus 8T design, including a beautiful edge-to-edge flat display, a USB-C port, no 3.5mm audio jack, and a quad-camera setup. The 8T looks like a souped-up OPPO A72, though typical smartphone design tends to feel rather similar in many ways these days so that’s not too surprising.
The rectangular camera module will allegedly include a main 48MP sensor, 16MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro, and 2MP portrait. On the front will allegedly be a 32MP front-facing camera. It’s unclear if the 48MP image sensor will be the Sony IMX586 featured in the standard OnePlus 8 model or the superior Sony IMX689 featured in the OnePlus 8 Pro.
An earlier leak from AndroidCentral claimed the OnePlus 8T will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. Pricebaba’s report conflicts with AndroidCentral’s, however, saying the device will come equipped with the regular Snapdragon 865 chip. It’s possible that OnePlus may offer either the 865 or the 865 Plus depending on the region. Other possible specs may include options for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The display, meanwhile, is said to be 6.55 inches with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The OnePlus 8T could also feature a 4,500mAh battery and support 65W Super Warp Charge.
When the OnePlus 8T launches, it should feature OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11, which the company has been working on over the last several months. No official launch date for the OnePlus 8T has been revealed, but it’s expected to be unveiled at the end of September or early October, possibly without an 8T Pro model at the helm.
