OnePlus 8T specs leak on Amazon: 65W Warp Charge, 6.55″ 120Hz display, 48MP quad rear camera, and more
The OnePlus 8T is coming. After a brief round of leaks and rumors, the smartphone company has confirmed the existence of the device and has now begun to tease it on their social networks. It will be announced on October 14th, as confirmed yesterday by the company. The 8T will serve as the late-year revision to the OnePlus 8, and we’ve already gotten to learn several details about it. We know how it will look, and we know most of its specs. Now, a prematurely-published Amazon listing has further confirmed some of the OnePlus 8T’s specs (via 91Mobiles).
First up, the listing states the device will have a 6.55-inch “Fluid Display”. OnePlus’ first phone with a 120Hz display was the OnePlus 8 Pro, while the OnePlus 8 had a more conservative 90Hz refresh rate. Tthe OnePlus 8T, however, will have a 120Hz refresh rate panel to match the 8 Pro, though it’ll be a lower resolution at FHD+ rather than QHD+. This was further confirmed by OnePlus themselves in a tweet and forum post as it will be one of the headlining features of this smartphone. In the forum post, OnePlus confirmed more of the OnePlus 8T’s display specs, including its touch sampling rate of 240Hz, its JNCD of around 0.3, 100% of DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, HDR10+ support, the presence of a flicker-detect sensor, 8,192 levels of brightness adjustment, and enhanced blue light filtering with “the same E3 luminescent material as the 8 series.”
Apart from the display, the Amazon listing also confirms support for 65W Warp Charge. This tech would actually be a first for OnePlus phones, as their proprietary Warp Charge technology, as of now, supports only up to 30W charging speeds. Other BBK-owned entities such as OPPO already use 65W charging on some of their phones, such as the OPPO Reno4 Pro, so 65W Warp Charge will likely be similar if not the same technology.
On the camera side, the OnePlus 8T will be packing a 48MP primary sensor in a quad-camera array, with a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. This array doesn’t seem all that impressive compared to the one on the OnePlus 8, but if the main image sensor is the same one as found in the OnePlus 8 Pro, then that’ll be a big upgrade over the 8.
Out of the box, the OnePlus 8T will run OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11, the company’s latest Android-based software with a design inspired by Samsung’s One UI.
Finally, the listing suggests that the device will be priced at €699 for the 12GB + 256GB model, with the base model going down to €599. While this could be accurate, it’s not uncommon for pre-release retail listings to have the wrong price, so this bit should be taken with a bit, or rather a huge bag, of salt.
