Rumor: OnePlus 8T will launch on October 14

It will come as no surprise that OnePlus is working on a successor to the 7T. An OnePlus 8T Pro successor would not appear for the time being. Previously, all specifications of the OnePlus 8T leaked, this time we found out more about the possible online launch of the device.

OnePlus 8T

In recent months, almost all details of the OnePlus 8T series have been leaked. For example, a render of the device appeared, showing its flat front and modified camera module. As with the OnePlus 8 (Pro), which was introduced earlier in the year, the phone will have a hole in the screen for the selfie camera – a so-called ‘hole-punch notch’.

Release date

To get a closer look at the design, we will have to wait until the launch of the 8T. Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice reported on Friday that OnePlus plans to launch the 8T on October 14, with an online launch event. Last year, OnePlus launched its 7T on September 26. The coronavirus may have thrown a spanner in the works: many Chinese factories have been closed for months due to the virus.

Other details of the launch event have not yet been discussed by Agarwal. For its Nord, OnePlus used Augmented Reality to assist the launch. In addition, it is unknown whether the manufacturer will once again organize online pop-up stores, as it did for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.

Specification list

Presumably, you no longer have to wait for the launch event for the phone’s specification list. Earlier it was leaked that OnePlus uses the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset on the 8T. On the front of the device, we find a 120 Hz screen. The resolution of the 6.55-inch screen has remained unknown. In terms of software, this phone is sold with OxygenOS 11.0.

In terms of specifications, OnePlus, therefore, packs a punch, but we have not had everything yet. If we can believe previous rumors, the phone will have four cameras on the back. Starting with the 48 MP main camera, supplemented with 16 MP, 5 MP and 2 MP sensors. Furthermore, OnePlus would abandon its Warp Charge 30T charging technology, and the charging speed will increase again. A 65-watt charger would be provided for the 8T, as leaked earlier this year.


As we are used to from OnePlus, the device can be pre-ordered immediately after the launch event on October 14. We may have to wait a little longer for the ‘free sale’. Take the rumors in this article with the necessary grains of salt, of course. OnePlus could adjust details just before the launch so that the specifications are not in line with reality.
