You can now pre-order OnePlus 8T for prices starting at $749. The smartphone is expected to ship in mid-October.
At that price point, OnePlus 8T is going to be one of the most affordable high-end smart phones hitting the market this year. It has attractive specifications including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage, minimum 8GB of RAM, a 120 Hz screen refresh rate, and a 65watt fast charging battery.
The premium handset has a 6.55 inch AMOLED display with 2400 x 1080 pixels. While this is decent enough, it should be noted that this display has fewer pixels/inch than some other phones in this range. Another downside is that OnePlus 8T does not support wireless charging; neither does it have an IP rating for water resistance.
By the way, the OnePlus 8T is only a modest upgrade to the already available OnePlus 8. Both models have a display of the same size, resolution and aspect ratio. The only difference is that while OnePlus 8 has a 90 Hz screen refresh rate, the 8T has a 120 Hz screen refresh rate.
OnePlus 8 and 8T also have the same processor and the same front camera. However, the new model has some extra rear camera features.
