OnePlus started its first series of “T” version since the launch of OnePlus 3T, and 4 years later, we are awaiting the arrival of the OnePlus 8T.
With the launch of OnePlus 8 Series just a few months ago, the “T” version of both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro is around the corner.
Personally, I have felt the “T” version to be always better than the initial version of the OnePlus device which launches in the April-May period.
Almost seems like OnePlus’s “T” version is fixing all the problems they encountered in the initial version with a few specifications bump.
So here is everything we know about OnePlus 8T
What are the OnePlus 8T Design Changes?
As we already know that the “T” version is always based on minimal changes to its previous version and this time around its no different.
OnePlus 8T renders are already out and it doesn’t show a much bigger difference.
The Only key difference would be the change in the bezels of the phone. Where OnePlus 8T is expected to keep the same 6.65-inch screen but with much smaller bezels on the top and bottom of the screen.
Also, the OnePlus 8T screen would also be a flat display in comparison to a curved display we saw in the earlier OnePlus 8.
Personally, I feel its a good approach by OnePlus in terms of making the display flat.
Because even though a curved display looks amazing to look at and makes it really beautiful in all sorts of advertisements from OnePlus, its never a usable feature in day to day life.
With accidental touches being a problem and moreover, you need to care about the display even more. Because even if the display falls on the sides of the phone, it will damage it.
Yes, there were rumors that the 8T might come with an in-display camera which have been in research for quite some time and has been seen in the showcase by Xiaomi.
Even Samsung seems to be working on one.
Unfortunately, that seems to be a reality in the 9 or 9 Pro version of the phone as OnePlus is expected to use the same single punch-hole display from the 8 series.
Is OnePlus 8T Screen Refresh Rate Getting Higher?
Yes, this seems to a reality that the upcoming OnePlus 8T will be launched with a 120hz refresh rate bringing it side by side with the “Pro” version of the OnePlus devices.
This is pretty good news for people looking to experience the 120hz refresh rate on a phone.
The refresh rate experience on the OnePlus 8 Pro has been pretty amazing for most users.
And even though it eats up a lot of battery, OnePlus has used a Dynamic Refresh rate for its smartphones.
A Dynamic Refresh rate allows the phone to deliver a high refresh rate based on what content you are using on the phone.
For example, if you are scrolling through your OnePlus device, the system will use the 120hz refresh rate to give you a smooth experience.
But it will come down to a 60hz refresh rate when you are watching any kind of multimedia content like Youtube or a Movie which does not require a high refresh rate.
Hence it preserves battery life and extends to its maximum capacity
Will OnePlus 8T come With Oxygen OS 11?
Since Google has already launched the stable version of Android 11, which is the latest version of Android is already available in Pixel Phones.
OnePlus 8 Series has also received the Android 11 beta versions and the OnePlus 8T will also come with Oxygen OS 11 aka Android 11 out of the box.

OnePlus 8T is expected to be launched around the price range of Rs 40-45,000 for its base variant like it was previously seen in the OnePlus 8.
Moreover, flagship phones are looking to get expensive in the coming months with Qualcomm Processors.
As Qualcomm prices are getting higher with its every chipset launch, OnePlus and other smartphone prices might increase as well. Unless they find an alternative chipset to use.
