Maybe the most important piece of data for potential patrons is the OnePlus 8T’s worth.
The OnePlus 8 value $699 / £599 (round AU$1,100), and whereas some leaks level to the brand new cellphone costing extra, specs which have been rumored counsel it might really be a extra reasonably priced cellphone.
So it is up within the air how a lot the OnePlus 8T will value, and it is onerous to even guess proper now. That is why we’re so to search out out the ultimate worth.
2. OnePlus Nord or not?
Some rumors counsel the OnePlus 8T might be unveiled alongside a brand new model of the OnePlus Nord, a mannequin that is set to be extra reasonably priced and obtainable within the US.
The OnePlus Nord is not a one-off cellphone so it is nearly particular there can be extra gadgets underneath the title sooner or later, however whether or not any are set to land throughout the OnePlus 8T launch is one other query.
The handset we have heard rumors of most is the ‘OnePlus Nord N10 5G‘ which is claimed to be a super-affordable system, however there have been whispers of different gadgets that would come as effectively, or as an alternative, so we do not know for positive.
3. What are the digicam specs?
Whereas OnePlus usually teases plenty of details about its upcoming telephones previous to launch, we normally have to attend for the disclosing to listen to digicam specs, and that is been the case with the OnePlus 8T.
Whereas there have been some leaks, we do not know for positive if the handset will preserve the 48MP primary sensor of its predecessors or get a rise, presumably to 64MP and even 108MP like some Xiaomi and Samsung telephones.
There’s additionally no official phrase on if the cellphone will get a telephoto (or zoom) digicam, or maybe a macro or depth-sensing snapper as an alternative. We’ll have to attend to search out out.

OnePlus has gone via fairly just a few front-facing digicam options over the previous few years – there’s the OnePlus 6T‘s notch, OnePlus 7 Pro‘s pop-up phase and the OnePlus 8’s ‘punch-hole’ cut-out, so it appears the corporate varies issues ceaselessly.
We do not know which of those, if any, the OnePlus 8T could have. It is more likely to be the latter, since OnePlus tends to not change these items between the main-line and T telephones, however we might see it moved at the least.
There is a tiny change the OnePlus 8T might have an under-display firm as Oppo, OnePlus’ sibling firm, is understood to be engaged on that, however we would in all probability have heard leaks about it if that was the case.
5. Will it cost wirelessly?
The OnePlus 8 Pro had wi-fi charging, however when OnePlus introduced the 8T would have 65W wired charging, the corporate made no point out of wi-fi options.
So might the cellphone skip out on the innovation its predecessor launched? Or has the corporate merely not mentioned it?
We would think about individuals who purchased OnePlus’s wi-fi charging stand would really feel irked if the corporate had ditched this tech already, so hopefully it is stored it, however we won’t say for sure.
