The OnePlus 8T, which was previously revealed to have a new Warp Charge 65 technology and 120Hz refresh rate, has been announced.
The Warp Charge 65 tech was first highlighted in a September forum post, which said that the device’s 4500mAh battery could be fully charged in 39 minutes, and charges up to nearly 58% in 15 minutes. The power adapter has a dual-end Type-C port design.
The Warp Charge 65 power adapter supports up to 45W PD fast charge, while the phone itself will support up to 27W for non-Warp Charge power adapters. There is no wireless charging support.
The screen’s 120Hz refresh rate was initially highlighted in another forum post. As for the screen itself, it’s a 6.55-inch 1080p+ AMOLED panel with a peak brightness of up to 1,100 nits and an AI that can adjust brightness levels.
Inside is a Snapdragon 865 chip and storage options of 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB, with the RAM being of the LPDDR4X variety. The phone comes with Android 11.
For cameras, it has a quad-setup with a 48MP main camera, a 16MP ultra wide camera with a wider lens than other OnePlus phones, a 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP monochrome camera.
