OnePlus 8T: Features
OnePlus 8T is the company's latest mid-range flagship and as such, it brings some of the best hardware available to smartphones right now. But one of its biggest highlights is its display as the phone features a 6.55-inch display with support for a high resolution of 2400x1080 pixels and a pixel density of 402ppi. The 20:9 aspect ratio phone is also capable of working at a high refresh rate of 120Hz and has very good viewing angles and colour reproduction.
The phone also flaunts some impressive cameras, with the device coming with a quad-camera set-up that comes with a primary 48-megapixel lens. The phone pairs that with three other cameras, one of which is an ultra-wide lens with a pixel count of 16-megapixel.
However, the biggest upgrade coming to the OnePlus 8T is a new battery pack which compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus 8T is slightly bigger at 4500mAh and can be charged at almost double the speed compared to the OnePlus 8 battery.
