OnePlus 8T firmly steps into flagship territory w/ $749 price, 65W charging

After its biggest price jump in years with the OnePlus 8 series, the OnePlus 8T has arrived with a new design, some upgraded specs, and a $749 price tag.

The OnePlus 8T is the only “T” phone the company is launching this year, with no 8T Pro. As you’d expect, this phone is a direct successor to the standard OnePlus 8 that launched for $699. What’s new? That starts with the design, which is a big departure from the rest of the 8-Series. It moves the camera module to the left side, switches to a glossy back panel, and graciously ditches the curved edges on the display. It pulls from the design of the OnePlus Nord, but also looks eerily like Samsung’s Galaxy S20 lineup.Advertisementsabout:blankREPORT THIS AD

In terms of specs, the OnePlus 8T is pretty much identical to the OnePlus 8. It has the same 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB models, the same Snapdragon 865 processor, the same 5G connectivity, and even the same 1080p resolution to the display. There are three key improvements.

First, the display now has a 120Hz refresh rate. The previous release offered up 90Hz that is still super fast, but upping the ante to 120Hz should make everything feel just a bit smoother. Storage should also feel a bit snappier with UFS 3.1. There’s also a bigger battery at 4,500 mAh.

Another small tweak comes from the cameras. You’re still getting a quad-camera array, but this time the primary sensor is a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. It’s a bit sharper than the previous option. Ultrawide hits 16MP with a wider 123-degree FOV with macro at 8MP and monochrome at 2MP.Advertisements

The biggest upgrade, though, comes from Warp Charge. OnePlus has upgraded its fast-charging system to hit a whopping 65W of power, fully charging the phone in just 39 minutes — a figure I’ve actually found the phone beating in my testing so far.

That charging brick also finally makes the leap to being USB-C on both ends, which also means it can provide power to some laptops. According to OnePlus, devices other than the 8T can get 45W of power over USB-C PD from that charging brick. To keep the phone’s battery safe while charging at those speeds, the 8T uses two battery cells and 12 temperature sensors.Advertisements

OnePlus 8T comes pre-loaded with Android 11 and the company’s new software experience, OxygenOS 11. That includes added features from Google such as improved notifications and Bubbles. There’s also a handful of new OnePlus features, most notably always-on display support. There are clocks and designs for the AOD, but also a fun Bitmoji AOD coming in November. Also coming in November is a new Voice Note app and a “Straighten Doc” feature for the camera.

The OnePlus 8T costs $749 in the US. Pre-sale is open today from OnePlus.com with orders shipping starting on October 23. Wide sales will also be open that day at 11 a.m. ET. Amazon and T-Mobile will also be selling the 8T. The phone will be sold in “Aquamarine Green” and “Lunar Grey.”

Notably, that $749 gets the 12GB/256GB version of the phone and that’s the only model being sold in the United States.
