About OnePlus 8T smartphone

The OnePlus 8T is the company’s latest high-end smartphone. The device is a subtle upgrade over the OnePlus 8 that launched earlier this year.

With a 120Hz display, a flat-screen design, and four rear cameras, as well as a dual battery system, the OnePlus 8T is aiming to be the flagship-killer phone OnePlus made its name creating

Furthermore, the device has been running on Android 11 based custom skin OxygenOS 11 out of the box. In terms of camera performance, the device will become with a Quad rear camera module housing a 48Mp f/1.7 Primary + 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens + 5Mp f/2.4 macro lens + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. In contrast, it was also using a dual-LED flash and the front housing, a 16MP f/2.4 selfie shooter placed on the upper left corner of the display hidden inside the punch-hole camera.


The OnePlus 8T is a $749 5G phone that fits right in between the $699 OnePlus 8 ($635 at Amazon) and $799 OnePlus 8 Pro ($999 at OnePlus), which were released in April.


The best part of the OnePlus 8T’s design is its 120Hz display. Most phones have screens that refresh 60 frames per second. A few phones, like the OnePlus 8, have screens that refresh 90 times a second, and even fewer refresh as often as 120 frames. The effect of the 120Hz display means the phone feels buttery smooth and fast. Scrolling through social media feeds, thumbing through home screen pages and playing games like PUB-G feel super quick and responsive.

In and of itself, the OnePlus 8T is an excellent device and it’ll surely satisfy anyone looking for a high-powered, reliable Android. The brilliant display is my favorite thing about the phone, but there’s a more enticing and cheaper competitor available from OnePlus itself — the OnePlus 8.

There’s no doubt that the specs for the camera hardware look quite impressive on paper, but the same couldn’t be said when it comes down to real-time camera usage. It’s not like the hardware isn’t powerful or capable, but the OnePlus camera app often lacks the ability to fully utilize the available hardware.

The photos captured with the stock camera app on the OnePlus 8T are processed with a punchy pre-applied filter effect. This makes the images sometimes provide excessive contrast and brightness, and often miss the details where they matter.
