OnePlus 8T may miss out on a key upgrade, launch date apparently locked in
They claim that the new phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 865, which is at odds with a previous report that said the phone would have the new Snapdragon 865 Plus under the hood.
The OnePlus 8T is expected to come in two variants: an 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model, and a 12GB RAM and 256GB native memory version.
The rear cameras can be seen on a rectangular module. The phone is expected to feature a 48MP primary shooter, a 16MP ultra-wide module, a 5MP macro unit, and a 2MP portrait sensor.
This part is a little puzzling, as a recent report indicates that the next phone in the Nord series, the N10 5G, will sport a 64MP primary sensor. It's hard to believe that a midranger would have a higher-resolution main shooter than a flagship.
OnePlus Camera app had already hinted that the company will equip at least one of its upcoming phones with a 64MP sensor. We will have to wait to find out if the sensor is exclusive to the OnePlus 8T Pro.
Moving on, the report claims that the OnePlus 8T will have a 32MP selfie camera, which is a notable upgrade, given that the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro come with a 16MP front shooter.
The OnePlus 8T will seemingly pack a 4,500mAh battery with support for 65W Warp Charge. The current flagship models offer 30W fast charging.
The handset will probably run Android 11 with OxygenOS 11 on top.
OnePlus 8T alleged launch date
Per leaker Ishan Agarwal, the OnePlus 8T will make a debut on October 14, provided 2020 doesn't throw another curveball.
