OnePlus Drip-Feeds Details Ahead of 8T



With not even a week to go before the full reveal of the OnePlus 8T, the company has been steadily drip-feeding teasers for the upcoming ‘phone. It’s OnePlus’ modus operandi but at times you wonder if there’s any surprise left for the big day.

Here’s what we know about the 8T so far:

  • It will come with OxygenOS 11 (Android 11) out of the box
  • The display will have a 120 Hz refresh rate.
  • The smartphone will have a Snapdragon 865 processor.
  • There will be improvements for low light images.
  • The main camera will be a 48M unit with OIS. See writing on the camera unit here.
  • The 8T is going to come in Aquamarine Green with a beautiful glass body. A Lunar Silver variant has been leaked.
  • Warp charge will support 65 W charging
  • There isn’t going to be an 8T Pro.
  • The back of the phone is going to look like the picture. Taken from this YouTube teaser.

It doesn’t look like the North American Nord models will be showcased next week as a further OnePlus reveal has been pencilled in for later in October.  But here’s hoping for “one more thing”. Rumours have been swirling for months about a OnePlus smartwatch…

In other OnePlus news, the company has created a virtual interactive experience in the OnePlus World, which offers a strange mix of games, activities and a musesum of OnePlus devices. It’s worth a visit….once.

  1. Brad, that must have been a Verizon “hack” to stop you changing the default browser. I’ve been able to set the default browser to Microsoft’s Edge on my 8 Pro just as you can (usually) on any Android phone.

  2. i bought the Oneplus 8 verizon model several weeks ago and I really liked the phone, beautiful display and seemed to be pretty fast moving thru screens, great sound even tho it only had 1 speaker opening. But what irked me was I was forced to use Chrome to open any links in emails, text messages etc The other issue was I had to go into the settings to turn off keyboard sounds if I wanted to access websites that required pressing numbered keys to access a menu such as trying to contact Verizon for phone support.. I’m trying to use as few Google apps/software as I can, I understand that is my choice. I have a xoaimi (android) mi mix 2 phone and can use any browser i choose to open links.
    Ended up sending the phone back for mostly out of frustration in dealing with Verizon. I did get a Oneplus 7T which was on sale $150 off at OnePlus.com and surprisingly this version 7T doesn’t force me to use Chrome to open links in text messages or in emails.
    P.S. the Spam call block on Verizon was an added $ each month
