The OnePlus 8T is now official: the new high-end mobile of the Chinese brand. The terminal arrives to be one of the brothers of the OnePlus 8 Pro, standing one step above the OnePlus 8. This year there will be no Pro variant, but OnePlus has put all the meat on the grill with this OnePlus 8T so that it does not lack for anything.
We thus have a Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 865+, a refresh rate of 120Hz and a camera system similar to that of the OnePlus 8. Let’s review the price and specifications of this OnePlus 8T, since it starts from a fairly sweet price despite being a high-end mobile.

A mobile that does not lack anything
OnePlus maintains the essence of the T family and endows the OnePlus 8T with top-of-the-line specs. It has a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED screen, with Full HD + resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel has a small perforation to make the most of the front. Similarly, OnePlus has curved the panel inward to achieve as much symmetry as possible, so it barely has a chin. If we turn it around, we have a great camera module rectangular in shape but rounded corners.
At the processor level the OnePlus 8T features the Snapdragon 865+, a 5G processor that is currently the best in Qualcomm’s ovens. It is accompanied by 8 and 12 GB of RAM, as well as configurations of 128 and 256 GB of internal memory. The battery is 4,500mAh with a fast charge of 65W, the fastest of the Chinese company.
There could be no lack of extras such as the fingerprint reader under the screen, the facial unlocking system through a camera or the inclusion of dual stereo speaker. At the connectivity level it has 5G, NFC, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and dual-band GPS, among others. In short, a more than powerful set of hardware to dominate in the “budget” high-end.
Four cameras with soul of OnePlus 8
The OnePlus 8T features the same 48 megapixel sensor as the OnePlus 8, with aperture f / 1.7 and pixel grouping. It is accompanied by a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with f / 2.2 aperture and two extra sensors: a macro and a monochrome. As usual, a telephoto lens is missing, but versatility is welcome, regardless of the sensor that arrives.
As for the selfie, the sensor and lens are located in the small hole in the screen, where this 16-megapixel camera with f / 2.0 aperture is located. OnePlus ensures improved night mode and greater general lighting in captures, as well as video recording in night mode or background blur also in video.
At the software level The OnePlus 8T comes from the hand of Android 11 right out of the box. They continue to bet on OxygenOS, in this case in its version 11, with a redesigned appearance that maintains the lines of Android Stock, but that is a little closer to Samsung’s One UI.
