While we don't have concrete details, a recent leak hints at the specifications and the design the device might have. The OnePlus 8T is likely to get a flat punch-hole display and a rear panel could feature a rectangular camera module in the top left corner, much like a Samsung phone these days.
As for the specs, the OnePlus 8T is likely to have a 6.55-inch Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and come in two RAM/Storage options: 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB. Camera-wide, there could be quad rear cameras: a 48MP main camera, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera could be rated at 32MP, much like the OnePlus Nord.
The device might feature a 4,500mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging, run OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11, and get an in-display fingerprint scanner. While the exact pricing remains unknown, the OnePlus 8T could fall under Rs. 50,000.
Since the aforementioned isn't concrete, we need to take it with a grain of salt. To get a better idea of what OnePlus plans to do, we need to wait for an official word. Hence, stay tuned for more information.
