Review OnePlus 8T | OnePlus 8T+ 5G – OnePlus finally officially launched its newest smartphone called OnePlus 8T and it is also their second flagship in 2020 after the OnePlus 8 Series which was released earlier this year.
The OnePlus 8T comes packing a 6.55-inch diagonal Fluid AMOLED Display that offers Full HD Plus resolution and supports HDR10 +. However, it is similar to its predecessor, the OnePlus 7T.
It’s just that now the refresh rate on the OnePlus 8T has increased to 120Hz just like the OnePlus 8 Pro coupled with an impressive increase in color accuracy and peak brightness of up to 1,100 nits. It’s no wonder that DisplayMate gives the new OnePlus 8T panel an A + score.
The OnePlus 8T is also the first OnePlus smartphone to be equipped with Always On Display Mode. It has 11 different designs and is also customizable. Apart from that, OnePlus has also partnered with Snapchat which allows users to use Bitmoji avatars on AOD which will be updated according to daily activities and environment.
The fingerprint sensor integrated under the screen is also not left behind, while the small hole in the left corner of the screen level which is in line with the leaks so far is home to a 16 megapixel selfie camera.
Moving to the back, there is a new camera module which now forms a rectangle and includes four cameras, one of which is the main 48 megapixel Sony IMX586 camera with OIS support.
There is also a 16 megapixel ultrawide camera with a 123 degree FoV which is then paired with a 5 megapixel macro camera to take close 3cm photos of the subject and as a complement, there is a 2 megapixel monochrome lens.
OnePlus has also equipped its new smartphone camera with interesting photography features. It has a new Super Stable model which will provide improved image stabilization for videos.
The OnePlus 8T is powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor. It might be a bit disappointing, considering that Qualcomm has a more powerful Snapdragon 865 Plus.
Moreover, OnePlus has included a cooling system which now has a vapor chamber which is 285% larger in its cellphone along with LPDDR5 RAM starting from 8GB or 12GB and UFS 3.1 storage between 128GB or 256GB.
Another highlight is the support for a new 65W fast charging technology called Warp Charge 65. OnePlus claims that Warp Charge 65 only takes 39 minutes to charge the battery from 0 to 100%. Talking about the battery, the OnePlus 8T has a fairly large 4,500 mAh capacity battery.
Completing the specifications, we get dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and the OnePlus 8T is one of the first smartphones outside of the Google Pixel to immediately run the latest version of the Android OS 11 with the OxygenOS 11 interface on it.
