OnePlus 8T Brings Ultra-Fast Charging to US
Updated: Added IP68 rating info for T-Mobile variant.
OnePlus has revealed the OnePlus 8T, an update to its flagship phone. Compared to the OnePlus 8 launched in April, the new 8T has a faster display refresh at 120 Hz (up from 90), and 65-watt fast charging (up from 30). The battery is also slightly larger at 4,500 mAh (up from 4,300). The included 65W charger can deliver "a full day's charge" in 15 minutes, or a 100% charge in 39 minutes. To achieve this, the 8T has dual batteries and 12 temperature sensors inside. Also new are a video portrait mode and new always-on display options. Finally, the display is now flat instead of having curved sides. Other features and specs are similar to the OnePlus 8, including the Snapdragon 865 chip, 6.6-inch full-HD AMOLED display with HDR10+, 8 or 12 GB RAM, 128 or 256 GB storage, 48 megapixel main camera, 16 megapixel wide camera, 5G, NFC, stereo speakers, and an in-display fingerprint reader. It will come in Lunar Silver and Aquamarine Green, and ships with Android 11. The OnePlus 8T will sell for $749 in the US. That's $50 more than the starting price for the OnePlus 8, but it's also the version with maximum RAM and storage (12/256 GB). It will be available from OnePlus and Amazon on October 23rd, with pre-orders starting today. T-Mobile will also offer it at a later date as the OnePlus 8T+ 5G, which adds an IP68 water and dust rating, and fully supports T-Mobile's 5G SA (stand-alone) network at launch.
