All about the OnePlus 8T
The OnePlus 8T is a mix between the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, because it effectively takes up some elements from their technical sheet. It is also not a bad thing. In its bowels, we then find the very good Snapdragon 865 to provide great power while being compatible with the 5G network. The smartphone effectively skips the Plus version of Qualcomm’s chip, but it was necessary to maintain excellent value for money.
The design is also quite similar with its predecessors. The template is identical to the OnePlus 8 with a 6.55-inch OLED panel also displaying a Full HD + definition, but offering the same refresh rate at 120 Hz as the 8 Pro. The punch is still housed in the same sign, top left. The only real difference is that the 8T offers a flat screen and not with curved edges on the sides. HDR10 + compatibility is obviously still in the game.
Beyond taking what is best from its elders, this 8T will also bring some interesting new features. First of all, its fast charge now goes up to 65W to recover 60% in just 15 minutes and the brand says that is enough to last a whole day. That being said, its 4,500 mAh battery easily offers two days of use, but we can regret the lack of wireless charging.
Then, OnePlus puts forward its efforts in the field of photography with better algorithms than before to improve the general quality of the shots and offer more possibilities. And that’s true, because the 8T certainly represents the brand’s biggest leap forward in this area. In video for example, the OnePlus 8T is able to film in night mode, or in portrait mode.
