At its virtual event last night, OnePlus has officially launched the 8T, which, as its name indicates, is the successor of the OnePlus 8 announced earlier this year. Over its predecessor, the OnePlus 8T comes with a new design, a smoother 120Hz display, and – as we reported earlier – 65W Warp Charge technology.
The 65W Warp Charge technology is a huge step up over the 30W fast charging from the older OnePlus phones, as it can charge the 4,500mAh battery of the 8T from 0 to 100 in just 39 minutes. A 15-minute charge is quick enough to give you about 58% of the battery.
The phone is built around a 6.55" AMOLED panel with 2400 x 1080-pixel resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The front panel is flat and it does not feature dual-curved edges. However, it does feature an optical in-display fingerprint scanner at the bottom along with a 16MP selfie camera at the top left.
Speaking of cameras, the OnePlus 8T gets a Quad-Camera setup at the back, including a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor, a 16MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. The phone comes powered with a Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage. Lastly, it runs on Android 11 with OnePlus' OxygenOS 11 on top.
The OnePlus 8T price in India starts at ₹42,999 for the 8GB+128GB variant. The higher-end 12GB+256GB variant, on the other hand, is priced at ₹45,999. It will be available starting 16th October, exclusively on Amazon India and the company’s website, in two colours – aquamarine green and lunar silver.
