OnePlus launched its latest 5G phone, the , on Wednesday, just months after it released the excellent OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. The new 8T costs $750, while the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched at $700 and $900 respectively, though it’s currently available at a $100 discount. ($750 converts to approximately £575 and AU$1,040.)
The Chinese phone-maker appears to have positioned this handset as an in-betweener to its April-launched devices bearing similar names. It has design similarities to the OnePlus 8, but borrows some of the better specs from the OnePlus 8 Pro. For instance, the OnePlus 8T has a 6.55-inch AMOLED display, which is the same size and type of display as the OnePlus 8 and all of the other phones, except for the OnePlus 8 Pro’s larger 6.7-inch screen. Like the OnePlus 8 Pro, it has four cameras on its rear headlined by a 48-megapixel shooter and a 120Hz display, which is the phone’s standout feature. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 7T, meanwhile, feature 90Hz displays, which means the screen refreshes 90 times per second.
Under the hood, OnePlus has crammed a class-leading Snapdragon 865 chipset and a 4,500-mAh battery into the relatively slick OnePlus 8T. But apart from the premium hardware, there are also some new features like an always-on display and a refreshed interface courtesy of software upgrades. In fact, the OnePlus 8T is the first flagship from the Chinese company (perhaps even its first phone ever) to run Android 11 out-of-the-box. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, however, can update to Google‘s latest mobile OS. It’s unclear at the time of the writing whether that’s the case for the OnePlus 7T.
As you can probably tell from its name, the OnePlus 7T is the oldest device from the bunch. At $599, it was also the cheapest at launch, though prices may have dropped further since its launch in 2019. Although it has fewer lenses than the OnePlus 8T and 8 Pro, the 7T is the only phone of the four to feature a telephoto lens.
