OnePlus may have accidentally taken a first look at the OnePlus 8T, thanks to an image found in the latest Android 11 developer preview for OnePlus 8 series of devices. OxygenUpdater.
Not much has been given to go over the leaked image, just the front view of the device, which seems to be pretty similar to the current OnePlus 8. It is possible that this image – labeled OnePlus_8T.webp and is a separate file from images for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro – is simply a placeholder for a different, final design for OnePlus 8T.
But given the timing of the leak (OnePlus usually releases its fall T-Series refresh in the October to November range) and the fact that it was found in OnePlus’ own firmware update, it is likely that this will be what OnePlus does. Looks like an 8T will – or at least what it will look like in front of it.
Presumably, OnePlus will have more details to announce on the OnePlus 8T in the coming weeks – in a more official way than a casual firmware file.
