Six months after the launch of the OnePlus 8, the company has launched its successor in the form of the OnePlus 8T. The OnePlus 8T arrives in isolation without an accompanying OnePlus 8T Pro, as the existing OnePlus 8 Pro will continue to be the company flagship.
The OnePlus 8T features several changes across the board, including an updated display and camera system along with a radically improved charging system. The OnePlus 8T also launches with the new OxygenOS 11, which is based on the latest Android 11. And it does all of this at a lower price than the outgoing model.
With the 8T, OnePlus will be competing in the increasingly competitive $700 segment. We have already seen some strong competition in the segment in the past from devices like the iPhone 11 and the recently launched Galaxy S20 FE. Google also just joined the fray with its new Pixel 5. As such, the OnePlus 8T has its work cut out for it.
In this review, we will see how much of an improvement the new OnePlus 8T is over its predecessor, how it compares against its closest rivals, and if it's worth your money.
So you wanna replace SD865, a high-end chip, with a upper mid-range chip?
You know what we'd have loved to see in the OnePlus 8T? MediaTek Dimensity 1000+
OnePlus smartphones are amazing in looks, really classy. But I think this device could have been much better.
