OnePlus 8T 5G will launch globally and in India on October 14th. The handset will be unveiled via an online event, which is slated to begin at 7:30 PM IST. The OnePlus 8T will be available for sale via Amazon.in, OnePlus.in, and partnered store across the country. The company will likely announce the first sale date during the launch event.
OnePlus 8T price in India (expected)
The OnePlus 8T price in Germany is said to be around Rs 51,000 for the top-end model, as per the Amazon listing. As for its price in India, it could be lower than Rs 50,000 considering the competitive smartphone market in the country. We expect the phone to be priced between Rs 45,000 to Rs 50,000 in order to maintain some distance with the OnePlus 8 Pro that starts from Rs 54,999.
OnePlus 8T specifications
OnePlus 8T is confirmed to feature a high 120Hz refresh rate display, much like the OnePlus 8 Pro. Leaked renders show that the handset will come with the same punch-hole design as its predecessor and a 6.5-inch FHD+ Fluid AMOLED display. Around the back, the OnePlus 8T 5G 8T is expected to feature quad rear cameras in a rectangular module that looks similar to some Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The cameras will reportedly comprise 48MP primary sensor with OIS, 16MP ultra-wide sensor, 5MP macro sensor, and 2MP monochrome sensor. At the front, a 16MP front-facing camera is expected.
OnePlus 8T will most likely be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset instead of the newer Snapdragon 865+ SoC, based on recent reports. The SoC is said to be coupled with 8GB/ 12GB RAM and 128GB/ 256GB storage onboard. Software-wise, the OnePlus 8T is confirmed to run the latest Android 11-based Oxygen OS out of the box.
The USP of the OnePlus 8T will be its new fast-charging solution. OnePlus has revealed that the handset will debut with the Warp Charge 65 fast-charging technology. The 65W output will juice up the phone’s 4,500mAh battery from zero to 58 percent in just 15 minutes and 100 percent in 39 minutes. “The new twin-battery configuration on the 8T will allow the device to charge more than twice as fast as previous OnePlus flagships with Warp Charge 30T,” the company said. Additionally, the OnePlus Warp Charge 65 power adapter will be compatible with other devices and features a dual-end USB-C port design. It also supports 45W PD charging.
Apart from this, the OnePlus 8T will support 5G and should come with an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. Other highlights may include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, and USB Type-C for charging and data sync. Whether the OnePlus 8T will come with an IP rating and wireless charging support is still a mystery.
