- The new device is now available starting at $749
- OnePlus 8T offers top-tier specs at a cheaper price compared to some
OnePlus is now selling its newest flagship device, the OnePlus 8T, for an attractive $749 selling price. The device offers some of the best features in any smartphone in the market at the moment and has super-fast charging.
While the OnePlus 8T appears to be an “incremental” update to the OnePlus 8, as per The Verge, there’s no denying that it still offers great specs and features that make it a good choice for those looking for a top-tier device.
The new handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, allowing it to perform on par with other devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy S20 FE (which is a flagship smartphone packaged to sell cheaply). The U.S. version also comes with 12GB of RAM to allow it to take on multiple tasks at once and also has support for 5G.
The device has a 6.55-inch AMOLED display with 2,400×1,080 pixel resolution, 402 pixel density and 20:9 aspect ratio. The display also boasts of a 120Hz screen refresh rate, allowing for fluid graphics.
OnePlus also said the display has a “Reading Mode” that will probably soften the display so that users won’t strain their eyes as they read documents or webpages.
The new OnePlus 8T has a quad camera setup at the back, headlined by a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. Along with this comes 16MP ultra wide lens, 5MP macro lens and 2MP monochrome cameras.
The device is capable of capturing 4K videos at 30 and 60 fps, 1080p videos at 30 or 60 fps, Super Slow-motion videos and time-lapse videos. It also features a video editor.
In front, there’s a small punch hole at the top-left corner of the display. This houses a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor, which can be used for high-quality selfies, group selfies or video calls. The front-facing camera is also used for Face Unlock.
OnePlus said the device features 65W Warp Charge. This solid feature charges the device from empty up to 50% in 15 minutes and 100% in a little more than half an hour. OnePlus includes a 65W power adapter in the box, so buyers won’t have to spend more to get one.
However, OnePlus won’t ship the OnePlus 8T with a pair of wired earbuds in the box. Consumers will have to get a pair of wired Type-C earbuds separately.
