There’s no additional hint from OnePlus about the 8T 5G but the name’s confirmed. On top of that, OnePlus isn’t using the “series” moniker this time. Hence, we can speculate that only one phone will be launched on anticipated October 14 launch date.
OnePlus 8T 5G: Expected specifications, features
It is most likely that the Snapdragon 865+ will be an obvious upgrade on the upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G. Based on the leaks, OnePlus may ditch the 30W Warp Charge in favour of the faster 65W charging. This is the same changing tech found on Oppo and Realme devices. Hence, OnePlus 8T users may be able to recharge their batteries in less than 30 minutes.
Another notable upgrade for the 8T will involve the display. Leaks suggest the OnePlus 8T will get a 120Hz refresh rate AMOLED display this time. The display could also have flatter edges, unlike the curved display on the OnePlus 8. The display could retain its 1080p pixel resolution and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus is also bringing a quad-camera system to the 8T 5G, says the leaks. A new 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor could take place of the main camera. There could be a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, along with a 5-megapixel macro camera. The fourth camera will be a basic depth camera.
