The OnePlus 8T was to be unveiled in world markets in the coming weeks. It seems that the launch in India may not be too far either as Amazon.in has already started teasing it.
During the opening Indian Premier League match over the weekend, the OnePlus 8T was first officially mentioned in a new TVC with Robert Downey Jr. Shortly after, the company teased the phone on Twitter, followed by a landing page on Amazon. Currently, the page only reads ‘OnePlus 8T: Coming soon’ along with a little quiz to win the phone.
OnePlus 8T specifications
No new information has been shared yet. If leaks are to be believed, the OnePlus 8T will launch October 14 worldwide – in the middle of a busy smartphone season including the iPhone 12 and the Xiaomi MI 10T. If that date is correct, it is exactly six months after the OnePlus 8 was unveiled in April.
From currently available information, there will be no OnePlus 8T Pro this time. The OnePlus 8T, on the other hand, will shift to a 6.55-inch flat 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display with a Full HD + resolution. Inside, it will likely be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, but some rumors have suggested the inclusion of the Snapdragon 865 Plus.
Even the camera module will be slightly different from the OnePlus 8 with a quad camera array consisting of a 48MP primary shooter, 16MP ultra-wide lens, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The biggest upgrade is expected in charging, with the 8T expected to support 65W fast charging. A major overhaul of the design is also on the cards.

A few other products are also expected to be announced at the same event, the most prominent of which is the OnePlus Buds Z. Based on the name, it looks like it’s going to be an affordable variant of the popular OnePlus Buds from earlier this year. No specs have been mentioned yet, but features like fast charging can make the cut.
It is also confirmed that more affordable smartphones will be unveiled later this year, expanding the OnePlus Nord family to more regions and price points.
