On the camera front, there are four rear snappers: a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 5-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel monochrome lens. The front camera stands at 16-megapixel.
The phone is backed by a 4,500mAh battery with support for 65 fast charging. As part of a recent update, it now runs OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 based on Android 11. The update involves a few improvements and the May 2021 Android security patch.

Should you buy it?
The OnePlus 8T now comes under Rs 40,000 and has safely become one of the affordable options with a Snapdragon 865 chip. It might be a year old chip but the phone can carry a number of tasks without much trouble a year old chip. Plus, it is up-to-date.
The OnePlus 9R does give it a good competition. The Snapdragon 870 SoC on it is essentially a tweaked variant of the 865 chip and there’s an added year of software updates. But, if you don’t intend to spend more, it still can be considered.
