The new 8T features the same glass and aluminum build. In comparison to OnePlus 8, the phone is slightly wider and thicker in terms of size.
There aren’t many changes on the front side. However, the chin and forehead of the phone have been greatly reduced for a better full-screen experience. The single punch-hole with the integrated selfie camera is still there.
Meanwhile, the rear has gone under drastic changes. Instead of the OnePlus iconic center-aligned camera placement, we have the left side aligned camera placement, similar to what we see in Huawei P40. Moreover, the triple camera has been upgraded to a quad-camera along with a dual-tone LED flash.
On the top, we have the SIM slot, on the bottom we have the Type-C port, dual stereo speakers, and dual microphone with the noise-canceling feature.
On the left, we have the power button/ lock slider and volume bar.
OnePlus 8T has a large 6.55″ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The phone also supports sRBG and has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels (FHD+). The screen-to-body ratio has been significantly improved.
The 8T features the same Snapdragon 865 SoC as the previous OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. This seems to be quite odd since the T series always had the Snapdragon 8xx Plus in it. However, Qualcomm previously announced that the Plus series will only be used in dedicated gaming phones. OnePlus 8T isn’t a dedicated gaming phone like the iQOO 5.
However, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t any upgrades at all. The RAM capacity remains the same with the LPDDR4X, however, the 128/256GB storage technology has been upgraded from UFS 3.0 to UFS 3.1.
In terms of sensors, we have Fingerprint (under display, optical), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and a new flicker-detect sensor.
OnePlus 8T camera section has a new upgrade, moving from OnePlus 8 triple rear camera to quad-camera. The rear camera configuration is 48MP + 16MP +5MP + 2MP. There’s the addition of a 2MP monochrome lens.
The front camera has been upgraded to a new Sony IMX471 with the same pixel size, however, smaller aperture which is f/2.4.
Let’s divide this section into two parts: wired and wireless connectivity.
First the wired connectivity, OnePlus 8T features a Type-C Gen 3.1 port which acts as an audio jack, charging port, and OTG. Moreover, we have the Dual SIM slot supporting Nano-SIM. There’s no dedicated MicroSD slot, no 3.5mm audio jack, and no IR blaster.
Moving to the wireless section, the phone supports 5G/4G/3G/2G. There are multiple variants with different bands to support each region 5G networking. Moreover, since we have SD 865, the phone also supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. An NFC module is also present for smart payments.
OnePlus 8T comes with OxygenOS customize skin based on the pre-installed Android 11, Google’s latest Android OS version.
OnePlus 8T undergoes a major upgrade in the battery section, moving from 4300mAh to 4500mAh battery and from 30W warp charging to 65W. The phone can be charged from 0%% to 100% in 35 minutes.
