If you are OnePlus, what do you do to follow the fantastic OnePlus 8 Pro launched earlier this year? If the latest Android Central rumors are to be believed, the answer is apparently “not much.” The site has specs for the upcoming OnePlus 8T, and you have to look very closely to see any differences between it and the OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus 8 Pro review: the best flagship of 2020, even if it is more expensive
Android Central includes the OnePlus 8T with a 120Hz OLED panel, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The site says the back will have four cameras, a 48MP main camera, 16MP wide angle, 5MP macro, and a 2MP depth lens. These are supposed to be the specifications of the OnePlus 8T, but they also describe the existing OnePlus 8 Pro. The only real differences in the new model are the size of the screen, which, at 6.55 inches, is slightly smaller than the 6.78-inch 8 Pro, the slightly improved Snapdragon 865+ SoC, and a 48MP sensor better than the OnePlus. 8 (which had a worse sensor than the OnePlus 8 Pro).
The front design also looks pretty identical to the OnePlus 8 Pro. OnePlus included a “oneplus_8t” image in the company’s latest version of Android 11 beta, and it looks just like the 8 Pro, with slim bezels and a single-hole camera. in the upper left. All smartphones look the same today, but other options would have been a dual front camera setup on the OnePlus Nord or a sleek new under-display camera.
Most companies release their phones on a rigid annual schedule, so you can probably guess that Q8 will launch a year after Q7. Android Central says: “OnePlus plans to introduce the OnePlus 8T at the end of the month or in the first week of October.”
