OnePlus 8T Expected Specifications

The handset was spotted on the Geekbench benchmark test back in July with the same model number. The listing revealed that the handset will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 865 processor, clubbed with an 8GB RAM and there could be other RAM variants as well.

The Geekbench listing also suggests that the OnePlus 8T will run on Android 11 operating system. The smartphone is tipped to launch with a flat display, along with a punch-hole camera setup placed at the top left corner of the front panel. In the benchmark test, the handset manages to score 912 points in single-core and 3,288 points in the multi-core test.

The smartphone reportedly arrives with improved cameras compared to the predecessor. It is expected to feature a triple rear-camera setup with the combination of 64-megapixel primary camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle-lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens, along with an LED Flash. On the front, this smartphone tipped to house a 20-megapixel camera sensor for selfies and video calls.

Last year the company launched the OnePlus 7T in September, so we can safely expect the launch of the OnePlus 8T by the end of September. Also do note that the aforementioned information is based out of leaks and rumours. The company is yet to reveal anything specific about the upcoming flagship phone. We recommend you to take this information with the grain of salt and wait for the official announcement.
