OnePlus began teasing the 8T a few weeks ago. The device will debut in India on October 14 at 7:30 PM IST and October 15 in China. The event will be streamed live via its official websites/website-builder/" 51818 target="_blank">website. In terms of design, the device adopts a flatter display like the OnePlus 7T. This is understandable considering there isn’t an 8T Pro this time and the 8T will likely succeed the 7T and equate OnePlus 8 in features.
OnePlus 8T Design, colors
Design-wise, it will likely to have a sandwich of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 6 to be on the display and rear-panel with a metal frame inside. We can expect it to be structurally sound and water-resistant with an IP68 rating. The display will be flat and host a single punch-hole at the top left. The power button and OnePlus slider will be on the Right, and volume buttons to the left. Also, it will mostly have a thickness of 8.4mm without a camera and a whopping 9.3mm thanks to the bulging rear-camera cut-out that is flaunted in official renders.
The official render shows a rectangular camera layout on the back 4 cameras and LED flash. While this shape looks like its borrowed from Samsung, the rounded edges make it more subtle. And, for the color variants, it will come in Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver options thanks to tipster Ishan Agarwal.

As for the optics, leaks say that OnePlus will sport the 48MP f/1.8 Sony IMX 586 sensor with OIS, EIS. Moving on, OnePlus has recently shared ultra-wide samples on the rear-camera confirming the presence. The samples show that the wide-angle lens can show its prowess in Night light too. That said, the other sensors probably are 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide with 116˚ FOV, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. Sadly, it will drop the Telephoto lens from the 7T. For selfies, OnePlus has already confirmed that the device will have a wide-angle lens for selfies. And, if reports are true it will have a 16MP sensor. We can expect camera features like Nightscape, PDAF, steady-video, 4K recording, and more.
Other specifications include a 4,500mAh battery with 65W Warp Charging probably with a Type-C to Type-C connectivity, in-display fingerprint scanner, and 45W PD charging. The device will also come with OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box.
Expected Price, and Availability
The OnePlus 8T is expected to be priced at $599 for 8/128GB and $699 for 12/256GB variants. However, OnePlus can vary it across regions as it usually does. That said, the device will be officially sold via OnePlus’ websites/website-builder/" 51818 target="_blank">website, Amazon, and its offline stores. However, Let’s wait for the official details on availability until next Wednesday.
