OnePlus has officially unveiled its latest smartphone, the OnePlus 8T, which comes with a 120Hz display, Always On Display mode, and Android 11. Another major upgrade with this phone is support for Warp Charge 65, enabling it to reach a full charge in 39 minutes.
The 6.55-inch AMOLED display matches the 8 Pro’s 120Hz refresh rate. The new panel also reaches a peak brightness of 1,100 nits.
One of the new features on the 8T is the Always On Display mode. Pre-loaded with 11 different designs, this feature is highly customizable. An AI algorithm will pick the best portrait shots from your Gallery and use them as an AOD wallpaper.
Like the brand’s 8-series, the 8T packs a Snapdragon 865 chipset. It’s also one of the first phones to launch with Android 11 out of the box.
The 8T has a rectangular camera bump on the left side of the rear consisting of the same 48MP IMX586 sensor as the original 8. Completing the quad camera setup are the 16MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP monochrome lenses. In front is a 16MP selfie camera housed in a hole-punch cutout.
The 8T comes with a 4,500mAh battery and ships with a new Warp Charge 65 charger, which now has a USB-C cable. This power brick supports USB Power Delivery and can output up to 45W of charge. OnePlus says that a 15-minute charge will give the phone almost 58% of battery, with a full charge completing in 39 minutes.
Entering the market as a more affordable version of the flagship line, the OnePlus 8T will be available for P29,990. It’s available for pre-order on October 17, 11am, exclusive at HomeOffice.ph. Customers can also enjoy P2,000 worth of HomeOffice Loyalty Points Perks upon purchase, which they can use for their next purchase.
Aside from the new phone, OnePlus also announced the OnePlus Buds Z, its cheaper TWS earbuds for $49.99.
