While OnePlus has made a foray into the mid-range segment with the release of the OnePlus Nord, the company remains committed to the release of the flagship models, which made it a hit across the world.
The OnePlus 8T 5G, which is being developed under the codename of Kebab, will come with some major improvements that will make it a popular hit among flagship fans. One of the biggest changes is related to refresh rate, as the upcoming device will feature a panel with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Besides the higher refresh rate, the new panel will also be a bit flatter, while the bezels have been trimmed, and the corners seem to be more round. Leaked renders reveal a hole-punch camera on the front, but there is no information about the sensor at this point.
A quad-camera setup will be present on the rear. The setup consists of a 48MP main sensor coupled with a 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. While the resolution of the main camera is similar to the one found on the standard OnePlus 8, a newer imaging sensor will provide better photos and videos.
Heart of a flagship
The device will be powered by the Qualcomm 865+ SoC along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage space. Other storage configurations will also be available and announced at launch.
Since Android 11 is already available, many sources argue that the upcoming smartphone will come with OxygenOS 11 from the start, which is not surprising as OnePlus likes to ship devices with the newest available version of Android. An official announcement could be released towards the end of September or the start of October, similar to the timeline for the announcement of the OnePlus 7T
More details could surface in the future.
