Those leaked specs come from PriceBaba, who worked with phone leaker Steve Hemmerstofer (aka “Onlix”) to publish an entire report coming with the OnePlus 8T. PriceBaba says the information is based on an internal schematic.
Probably the biggest change coming in OnePlus 8T is fast charging. The report says that the new phone will support 65W charging, the current phone of OnePlus will give a big jump with 30W charging. With the War Charge 30T technology in the OnePlus 8, we saw a drained phone get up to 68% after 30 minutes of charging, so we can only imagine the 65W charger with a rumored 4,200mAh battery of the OnePlus 8T. What will do
OnePlus is usually opposed to the best processors available in its flagship phones, and is an upgrade from the Snapdragon 865 Plus, the Snapdragon 865 shipped to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro this spring. The Snapdragon 865 Plus features fast core clock speed and fast graphics rendering on its prime CPU. OnePlus plans to enhance the OnePlus 8T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage according to the specification report.
On the design front, the curved look of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro is making way for the flat-edge screen favored by the OnePlus Nord. The 8T will feature a 6.55-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. That refresh rate offered on the OnePlus 8 Pro is OnePlus, as the standard 8 model did with 90Hz.
The camera module, rotating to the left of the OnePlus 8T, is common with the OnePlus 8, which matches the phone’s 48MP main sensor and 16MP ultra wide lens. OnePlus is competing with the 8T macro lens up to 5MP – it was 2MP on the OnePlus 8 – adding the portrait sensor.
The Pricebaba report does not mention the Pro version of OnePlus 8T. Earlier reports suggested that OnePlus will be scattering the OnePlus 8T Pro this time around, though leaker Evan Blass recently pointed to a leaked handset guide for several OnePlus devices, including the 8T Pro.
OnePlus usually rolls out two flagships every year, with the T model of the handset appearing six months after its initial flagship release. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro debuted in April, so we’re right on schedule for a new phone from the upstart phone manufacturer to be launched in October.
