Global mobile technology company OnePlus today launched its newest high-end flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 8T 5G. Following the success of the company’s OnePlus 8 series earlier this year, OnePlus is again pushing the limits by introducing a host of next-generation technologies including a newly calibrated 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display and the company’s fastest charging solution ever – Warp Charge 65.

“With the OnePlus 8T 5G, we’re offering pro-level capabilities for even more users across our flagship smartphone portfolio,” said Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus“Featuring a class-leading 120Hz AMOLED display, our upgraded 65W fast charging technology and fresh, bold software in OxygenOS 11, the OnePlus 8T 5G offers an impressive overall package of powerful hardware and smooth software.”

Warp Charge 65 – A Day’s Power in 15 Minutes

Warp Charge 65 is OnePlus’ most advanced charging solution ever, offering a full day’s power in just 15 minutes. It utilizes twin-battery charging technology to rapidly replenish the large total capacity of 4500 mAh and takes just 39 minutes to complete a full charge under normal usage, making overnight charging a thing of the past.

The OnePlus 8T 5G is equipped with 12 temperature sensors, along with an extra encryption chip in the adapter and cable, to keep charging temperatures at a comfortable level while operating at peak output of 65W. Whether you are getting ready for work in the morning or taking a quick break throughout the day, Warp Charge 65 gets the OnePlus 8T 5G juiced up and ready to go in no time.

120Hz Fluid AMOLED Display

The OnePlus 8T 5G’s 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display is the first flat 120Hz display ever to earn an A+ rating from DisplayMate. Every swipe or scroll across the panel will deliver astonishingly smooth visuals, so users can enjoy the most intense games with remarkable fluidity and browse effortlessly through social media feeds on the immersive display panel.

With a Just Noticeable Color Difference (JNCD) of around 0.3, the OnePlus 8T 5G display has the highest color accuracy in the industry. The FHD+ 2.5D flexible display also features a peak brightness of up to 1,100 nits, delivering clearer visuals even under bright sunlight. In addition, the OnePlus 8T 5G has 8,192 levels of brightness, making the transitions between various brightness settings feel natural and comfortable.

Superior Power and Performance

The OnePlus 8T 5G is equipped with the flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865 5G Mobile Platform with a Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, which enables staggering multi-gigabit 5G connectivity, professional-quality photography at Gigapixel speeds, desktop-level gaming with ultra-realistic graphics, and intuitive AI experiences. The superior computing power is further complemented by dual-mode NSA + SA 5G and Wi-Fi 6 support for faster, more reliable data speeds.

The exceptional hardware enables smoother 4K video capture and playback with reduced battery drain, allowing users to take advantage of 5G network speeds to stream HD videos or play performance-demanding games while on the move.

Advanced Quad-Camera System

The OnePlus 8T 5G features a robust and versatile camera kit designed to efficiently capture any and every moment in crisp detail. The quad-camera system includes a 48MP main camera with optical image stabilization, a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and dedicated macro and monochrome lenses, letting users enjoy studio-level photography on the go.

The 123-degree ultra-wide lens on the OnePlus 8T 5G provides a new perspective for framing shots so users can confidently capture vast landscapes, expansive architecture and other wide-angle subjects in full view. The lens delivers clear shots in a variety of lighting conditions – even at night or in the dark due to the improved Nightscape mode.

The versatile OnePlus 8T 5G camera kit covers even the most action-packed moments thanks to advanced video stabilization software. The new Video Portrait mode produces vivid clips with a natural bokeh effect based on improved AI, accurately detecting and analyzing human subjects and blurring out the background. 

Beautiful Design

The OnePlus 8T 5G is available in two new breathtakingly beautiful colorways: Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver. The Aquamarine Green version takes advantage of diffuse reflection, a form of light refraction that scatters light in an expansive array of angles and directions, and provides a clean, gleaming surface that leaves significantly fewer fingerprints on the glossy glass back.

The new Lunar Silver variant combines the latest iteration of OnePlus’ premium matte-frosted glass with a calming grey tone to strike the perfect balance between aesthetic elegance and unmatched comfort.

OxygenOS 11 – So, So Smooth

Not only is the OnePlus 8T 5G the first OnePlus device to come with the latest version of OnePlus’ operating system, OxygenOS 11, right out of the box – it is also the first global smartphone not manufactured by Google to launch with Android 11. OxygenOS 11 reimagines the OnePlus software experience with an improved layout, bold design and useful features that make one-handed operation easier and more intuitive.

OxygenOS 11 also enjoys a host of newly optimized animations and gestures, as well as numerous customizations to meet your personal preferences such as 11 new Always On Display clock options, improved one-handed gesture controls and Zen Mode 2.0. The clean look and feel empowers users to streamline day-to-day tasks, improve efficiency, and enjoy a more refined, personalized user experience.
