OnePlus 8T India launch imminent as phone gets BIS certification
India Today Tech September 14, 2020
Over the last few weeks, we've been increasingly hearing about an upcoming OnePlus smartphone, and now there's fresh proof that the device could indeed be the OnePlus 8T. This upcoming smartphone is tipped to be closer than ever to becoming reality as the device codenamed "Kebab" has already been certified by India's Bureau of Standard (BIS).
The listing for the phone was spotted by tipster Sudhanshu. The listing reveals that the device would come with the model number KB2001. Interestingly, we've seen this same device listed on Geekbench in July. The suggestion is the model number is for the OnePlus 8T, which could now be launched in India shortly.
The Geekbench listing reveals some interesting details about the phone, including the fact that the phone could pack 8GB RAM and come with Android 11 OS out of the box. As per the listing, the phone will be quite fast as it has managed to score 912 points in the single-core and 3288 in the multi-core tests.
Earlier, we've seen reports that have revealed pretty much all there is to know about the device. As per reports, the phone could bring with itself some powerful hardware, including 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, paired to a Snapdragon 865+ processor. There are also suggestions the phone will come with the same panel that's been previously seen on the OnePlus 8, but with a slight twist. As such, there will be a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel running at a faster 120Hz refresh rate of 90Hz.
Cameras are also expected to be upgraded. As far as the rear set-up is concerned, there will be a quad-camera setup at the back with a 48-megapixel main sensor, alongside a 16-megapixel ultrawide, a 5-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. While the main cameras appear to be the same, the big change appears to be the addition of the macro lens. Additionally, the report also claims that the primary 48-megapixel lens will see OnePlus use a new imaging sensor to improve picture quality.
