OnePlus has confirmed that it will launch the new 8T model via livestream on 18 October 2020 at 10:00AM EDT / 3PM BST / 4PM CEST / 7:30PM IST. Along with the announcement, the company also released a new promo video and the tagline “Ultra Stops At Nothing” which hints at the upcoming phone’s capabilities, or possibly an Ultra variant.
Like the previous teaser, not much of the OnePlus 8T was revealed – save for some brief glimpses which still doesn’t highlight much of the new device. According to the previous leak that we’ve previously covered, the phone is said to feature a 6.55-inch flat AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, and supports 65W fast charging.

An earlier report by GSMArena claimed that the OnePlus 8T may not have a Pro variant unlike its predecessor. However, the company’s aforementioned tagline suggests that an Ultra version could also see a release, but this is merely speculation.

While another option, the 12GB + 256GB is said to retail at USD899 (~RM3,718). This tip also suggests that the phone may see release outside of India after its launch.
Official design, specifications and pricing for the OnePlus 8T will be revealed eventually when the phone launches in India next month. Its availability outside of the country post launch is unknown for now, but is very likely.
