Official presentation of the flagship OnePlus 8T took place some time ago, but this smartphone still has a lot to offer. As with the show OnePlus North, this has also taken place in augmented reality, and Chinese society is pushing the boundaries further and further.
The biggest highlights of the new smartphone are clearly the extremely smooth and flat 120 Hz AMOLED Display Snapdragon 865, Warp Charge 65 W charging, 12 GB RAM, UFS 3.1 storage or more quadruple 48 MPx camera.

The global version is exactly the one sold by the official retailer outside of China, that is is designed for our market. The system supports Slovak or Czech language and all networks will work without any problems. However, Banggood recently changed it to the UK version, so it is also a global version, but probably with a different tip for the charging adapter.
We have been testing OnePlus smartphones since the seventh generation, so this model from the end of 2020 cannot be missing either. Read our view of the OnePlus 8T in our written review, where we looked in detail, especially at the then new version, Oxygen OS.
Full version for Europe
As for the smartphone version, Banggood sells the Chinese version in which it installs official international OxygenOS system with fully functional OTA updates.
The phone also supports complete European networks, including the B20 LTE band. The only difference compared to the official EU version is the Chinese charger, which you do cheap reduction.
New design with an even thinner body
The OnePlus 8T comes with a new and different design than this year's models OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. It boasts especially a thinner body, which is only thick 8,4 mm or weight only 188 grams. It comes in two colors: Aquamarine Blue (aquamarine blue) a Lunar Silver (gray).
Flat 120 Hz AMOLED
One of the most important aspects of a smartphone is the display. OnePlus listened to fan requests and used flat type AMOLED panel. It has a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, diagonal 6,55", support HDR 10 + or clarity up 1100 rivets. The sampling frequency stopped at 240 Hz.
The value of the authenticity of colors is also a great number JNCD 0,3. The smaller the number, the more faithful the colors. For example, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a JNCD of up to 0,55. The display reaches up to 8192 brightness values and also has an improved automatic brightness algorithm.
Good performance, but without Snapdragon 865+
The OnePlus 8T does not follow in the footsteps of last year's T models, when it received an improved Snapdragon 855+ processor. Probably also due to the high price and not such a large deployment across the entire smartphone market, there is "only" inside Snapdragon 865. He has 7 nm production process and graphics chip Adreno 650.
In addition, it offers the most powerful configuration up to 12 GB RAM type LPDDR5. 8 GB variants will also be sold. Internal UFS 3.1 Storage is extremely fast and they are available 128 to 256 GB variants.
Very fast Warp Charge 65 W charging
The performance specification of the OnePlus 8T is also its charging. It reaches a great value up to 65 W, which is one of the most significant improvements over the OnePlus 8 and 8 pro. Warp Charge 65 can charge the device from 1 to 60% only in 15 minutes! However, what freezes is the lack of wireless charging.
However, the battery capacity is smaller at the level of 5G devices 4500 mAh. They divided it into two parts so that charging was possible so quickly. However, the manufacturer still promises good endurance for one day and support for previous fast charging standards.
This, of course, means that it has a USB-C connector. Powerful charging adapter with the famous red OnePlus cable will be waiting for you in the package.
Quad 48 MPx camera
The category of cameras has not undergone such significant changes. At the back there are four cameras and a dual LED flash with a main, very high quality, 48 MPx sensor Sony IMX586. He seconds it 16 MPx ultra-wide sensor with aperture ƒ / 2.2, 5 Mpx macro sensor and finally 2 MPx monochrome sensor.
The front selfie sensor is one and has a resolution 16MP We do not know more information about him. Of course, the video can be shot in 4K quality and slowed down to 240 fps. It uses laser focusing, digital and optical zoom, OIS and the well-known ultra-stable video mode.
Special cooperation with Fortnite
The performance of the game was also mentioned at the performance Read at 90 Hz. Although many smartphones have high refresh rates than the OnePlus 8T, not all games can use them. But this is no longer the case with the OnePlus 8T and a few other models thanks exclusive cooperation. This is the very first opportunity to play Fornite on a smartphone at 90 Hz.
In the Oxygen OS system (there is also a special game mode Fnatic, which optimizes the performance of the processor, RAM and graphics processor.
Haptic vibrations and Dolby Atmos
Haptic vibrations are already almost standard in this class of smartphones. They have a more faithful imitation of various vibrations and are more pleasant to the touch. The OnePlus 8T also has quality dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.
The Chinese manufacturer also boasted of a decent one liquid cooling. The chamber where the liquid is stored is about 285% larger than the previous models.
