The OnePlus 8T will launch in a few weeks’ time and before that happens, a couple of leaks are bound to come out. The phone is tipped to come with a host of upgrades over the outgoing OnePlus 8. The most particular one is the 120Hz AMOLED display that OnePlus itself has confirmed via the media. However, the most important bit is pricing and OnePlus could possibly pull out a card trick this time with a cheaper starting price.

According to tipster Ishaan Agarwal’s post, the OnePlus 8T may come at a lower starting price over the OnePlus 8. The device was accidentally listed on Amazon at a starting price of Euro 599 for the variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. That’s Euro 50 lesser than the OnePlus 8’s 128GB variant in Europe. Is OnePlus aiming for a cheaper price to appeal to a larger crowd? After all, the company came out with the affordable Nord this year.

The cheaper price is also possible due to the fact that OnePlus is being clever with the packaging this year.

Starting with the chipset, the OnePlus 8T will retain the Snapdragon 865 chip. The Snapdragon 865+ isn’t going to be a part of the 8T series. This could help OnePlus in reducing the cost of the phone by a notable margin. The display is losing its curved edges too but is gaining a refresh rate rating of 120Hz. Quad HD+ is still reserved for the Pro variants.
The battery section is getting a 4500mAh power source and to fill it up, OnePlus is upgrading to the 65W Warp Charge technology. This is the same 65W technology that Oppo and Realme offer on their smartphones. There will be a quad-camera setup at the back, comprising of a 48MP main camera with OIS. This is accompanied by a 16MP wide-angle camera and a 5MP macro camera. A depth camera is also present here.
The OnePlus 8T will be available in Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver. The devices will launch on October 14 as confirmed but OnePlus will put it on sale starting October 20.
